The song premiered via Groundsounds who noted, “The stirring, sweeping single is an intimate indie-folk portrait of Lee taking stock of herself. Lee’s ethereal vocals and the artfully crafted, brilliantly lush arrangement draws you into the intimate space in which ‘Catch & Release’ was created (her bedroom) and, as all great art does, stokes similar contemplations within yourself.”

The Ballroom Thieves go full political Americana with new song “Tenebrist”

“There’s a Nietzsche quote about how artists muddy the water to make it seem deeper than it really is, and as harsh as that sounds, we think it applies directly to our current political situation. One of the challenges in writing this album was trying to maintain a sense of positivity and hope in such an increasingly negative socio -political climate, especially since we’ve had trouble writing ‘happy’ songs in general. This song asks the listener to see the reality we’re currently facing while remembering that good things tend to emerge out of the worst circumstances.” – The Ballroom Thieves

Skope Magazine- Song Debut- “All That I Want” by Bryan Lazar

“All That I Want” tells the simple story of finding somebody that you truly can see spending the rest of your life with. Sometimes life can be a lot of fun sharing it with somebody else and that was the message I wanted to get across with this track.

Electronic music from Timisoara

“After some years of activity in styling, fashion design, photography and illustration, I finally decided to embrace music. Being inspired by a lifelong passion for music and by other musicians that I worked with, I decided to become a vocalist and music producer.

I am happy to present my second single “Entrance” that was released two days ago, where I explore new territories and sonic directions. I think the main influences here are house and pop music, while the lyrics are inspired from zen culture. For me the process of music production in an ethereal journey of self discovery.”

CONFESSIONS OF A TRAITOR Release New Single & Official Video For ‘Twelve’

Heavy melodic London metallers Confessions Of A Traitor have released new track Twelve with an Anchorman inspired music video.

Twelve directly addresses how we are molded by negative behaviours, and in order to move forward we must shed the dead weight; ultimately having a brief moment of clarity where we see and feel what it would be like if our self destructive nature wasn’t holding us back. The fun light-hearted Anchorman style video that accompanies the track sees the band fighting and overcoming their demons in the literal sense.

On the track Josh quotes: JOSH – “I’m excited to release this song, it has a lot of energy. The Dzuris brothers James and Joe originally started writing this song without me but couldn’t finish it.

I loved the song straight away made some changes (it was originally more pop without guitars) and added some lyrics and my vocals and the song was finished! A real collab!”.
