Levy and The Oaks Music Video “Obsessive Love” for feature consideration
Indie rock band Levy and The Oaks premiered their newest music video for their single “Obsessive Love.” The comedic video about *over* infatuation is now available to watch on Youtube.
The music video follows a girl with an obsession for the frontman of the band. She has pictures of the singer all over her room and cutaway shots show her spying on him. Her “obsessive love” is an over the top example of what the song is talking about. “It’s obsessive love, it’s more than peace and doves. There’s a little hell in this heaven above.”
Raiden and Bright Lights liven up their “Heart Of Steel” with Festival Mix
It’s no Déjà vu but a brand new version of Raiden & Bright Lights’ “Heart Of Steel”. More than a year after the original version’s release, Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings along with the Korea’s fastest rising talent – Raiden, and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter – Bright Lights, released a Festival Mix of that notable record.

After its official release, in January 2017, the single has clocked up over 1.7M streams on Spotify and surpassed 2M views on Youtube. The newely released Festival Mix is destined to do its magic at festivals around the world and if you are up to date with Nicky Romero’s recent performances, chances are you have already danced to it.
DogHouse Swine are just as angry, loud, and righteous as you would expect of a trio whose members spent years sweating out gigs in every sticky-floored shithole firetrap that would have them.
The New Jersey natives have a formula that never fails: aggressive punk ‘n roll guitars, top-of-your lungs choruses and drums that turn concrete floors into trampolines. DogHouse Swine deliver every night, to every crowd, like it’s their last show ever, and their albums capture that energy. Beneath it all is the quality that defines every great Jersey band: A sense that no matter what, they will persevere. DogHouse Swine see the world with clear eyes and brutal wit, but stay the hell out of their way. Listen long enough and you’ll feel the same.
Foemen – ‘Magnetic Form’ Single
Brendy Cann known as Foemen is a new wave/indie/synth pop artist from the Steel City of Newcastle, Australia. Magnetic Form is the lead single from upcoming EP release Magntisz.
“Maybe I’m too much of a romantic or people watcher, but I have a huge interest in the idea of people acting purely on their feelings no matter the cost. In theory it should probably be the way we live, it seems natural, at the same time this way of being can cause someone a lot of problems.” – Foemen
It is said that every generation casts its mind back to a previous era in times of crisis; the resources that will allow us to decode the questions of our moment may lie in the myths of another era.
Le Renard Bleu, the new musical and cinematic collaboration between Lafawndah and composer Midori Takada, and filmmakers Partel Oliva, takes a cross- generational echo as ground zero for recovering a crucial myth for uncertain times: the blue fox.
Prophets of Rage Drop Surprise New Single“Heart Afire”
Last Friday, revolutionary musicians Prophets of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord dropped their first new music since the release of their self-titled debut album last fall. The band released the previously unannounced single “Heart Afire” on July 6. The Brendan O’Brien produced track is a hint of more to come from the radical band. The group performed the track as special guests at Eminem’s sold out show in Milan at Experience Milano Stadium on Saturday, July 7.
Fauvely is the project of Chicago-based singer-guitarist Sophie Brochu, who creates deeply personal dream-pop music. After completing her master’s in fiction writing and feeling frustrated with the constraints of her craft, Sophie turned to music for its raw and immediate release. The title of her debut EP, Watch Me Overcomplicate This (Midwest Action, 2017), speaks to the confessional tone of songs that range from delicately self-effacing to hauntingly sad.
Winters End Share First Single “Ivy” off forthcoming album
Hailing from Australia, sister-brother duo, Winters End are back with a new single, “Ivy.” Written in the midst of a breakup, “Ivy” is about as honest and emotive as relationship-ending anthems come. Marissa (vocals) recounts the inescapable feeling of being torn apart from a long-term lover, facing the end of her relationship while writing “Ivy,”—and then again during recording, where she forced herself to cry in order to capture the pain she felt. It’s powerful enough to make you wonder if you’re going through a break up yourself. Even if you’re single AF.
Croatian beatsmith MATRODA connects with Brazil’s RICCI on the menacing “Caliente (Na Na Na).” The scorching hot Dim Mak single sees a catchy sing-song chant get flipped into a dark-bass house production infused with rich percussion rhythms by two of the finest producers of low end frequencies.
