Following a recent move to Los Angeles, CA from Brooklyn, NY, indie-rockers The Dig are rolling out a series of tracks about starting new chapters and making a new life. The newest single from their upcoming Afternoon With Caroline EP, “Don’t Stop Running,” is out today and can be heard now at EARMILK. They call the track a “banger that takes inspiration from ‘70s soul-pop,” and go on to add, “A warbly mellotron keyboard lets listeners know it’s okay to rest easy on this carefree joy ride that comes equipped with wispy call and response vocals that envelop our ears with idyllic summer imagery. A dazed and floral chorus make way for satisfying chord changes and feel-good melodies that soothe the soul.” Afternoon With Caroline will become Side B of a special edition 12-inch LP due out October 19, 2018 via Roll Call Records, with the band’s recently released Moonlight Baby EP as Side A.

New Track: Kayobe – ‘Knock’

“Rashid and I got linked up by a friend who thought it would be good for us to work together, especially as I began to branch out into producing more hip hop beats. We first started work on another track (which will be included on Nevermore), but “Knock” didn’t come until a little later. After producing a few tracks for Rashid’s project, I showed him a few Kayobe beats I had – “Knock” really ignited something within him. Rashid immediately started writing verses on it, and we wrote the chorus together. It was a real organic process. I know he was going through some personal journeys that really helped him flow on it, too.” – Kayobe
