New Music from DATAROCK: DATAROCK “The One”

Bitter sweet symphony “The One” picks up where Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” and The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” left – wrapping “the one that got away” in Mancunian beats & bass, Los Angeles layered guitars, harmonic voicing, and vintage electronic textures.

Wicca Phase Springs Eternal shares video for ‘Just One Thing’, new album Suffer On due 15th February

Mike Tyson’s post-boxing career has taken several interesting turns since his days as Heavyweight Boxing Champ, taking him from the ring to the big screen and Broadway. His latest venture is Tyson Ranch, a 412-acre entertainment complex, luxury glamping resort, and cannabis research & design facility in Desert Hot Springs, California, which will host the inaugural “Kind Festival” on Saturday, February 23.


“The whole idea behind the video is about meeting somebody and thinking they’re incredible and you see an ‘out of this world’ quality in them. That standard stuff you feel when you let your head run away ….but sometimes they’re just not quite what you thought they were and it turns out they’re just pretty ordinary.”
