The track is packed with eccentric rhythms and atmospheric lyrics which blend into the fuzz-effectsy guitar for a rich and satisfying modern rock sound.

Skope video submission: G. Battles f. Rick Ross, Spice 1, “Rolls Royce”

Battles says he wrote his new single “because it was always a dream of mine to have a Rolls. Coming up in poverty, my only aspiration was to become successful so I would never want for anything. This song was written to manifest greatness in my own life and to show others that they can do the same thing too.”


US metal band Silvertomb share their new single “Waiting”. It’s the second single taken from their debut album “Edge Of Existence” coming November 1st, 2019 via Long Branch Records / SPV. Listen to the song HERE.

Kenny Hickey comments on Single “Waiting”:
“After a long night in the studio wrestling with key changes and heavy riffs I became frustrated and picked up my acoustic and this song just sort of spilled out at 3am. It was completed in around 15 minutes. I guess it was just what I needed: a straight up simple rock song to put my feet back on the ground. I decided to end the record with it to refresh the ear after 36 minutes of dirge and weighty tuned down sludge, so it actually shares with the listener the state of mind I was in when it was written. It’s a song about wasting time and emotional energy over the things you’ve lost in life and the things you could never have.”

Bea Miller Shares New Track And Video “Never Gonna Like You”

“NEVER GONNA LIKE YOU,” gets under the listeners’ skin with Bea’s soulful, sultry vocals set against a catchy electronic backdrop and infectious chorus that builds and repeats. Snakehips produced the track, along with Alex Raymond, working their magic that results in an undeniably catchy earworm. Lyrically “NEVER GONNA LIKE YOU” addresses evolving relationships and perspectives on the people in your life, “yeah we used to be friends, now you’re acting different, tell me that you need me like you used to…” The video was directed by Emmet Kilmer, with co-direction by Bea, notably her second time directing her own video behind the camera versus a starring role in front. The storylines intersect, with vignettes that tackle insecurities, flaws and self-loathing, but the protagonists ultimately recognize that life is not as empty as it may sometimes feel.

NEW SINGLE + VIDEO – Off Bloom Releases Addictive Track ‘Are You Feeling It Too?’, Out Today.

‘Are You Feeling It Too?’ delves into how the internet has affected our current social climate in an alarming way. Being ‘online’ has become an obsession in our everyday lives, and reality today feels somewhat dystopic and reason seems to have abandoned us. The idea of the track struck whilst the band were in residency at San Cataldo in Italy last year. Influenced by listening to a lot of Sting, Daft Punk, Steely Dan, Groove Armada and Maroon 5 – ‘Are You Feeling It Too?’ is an up-tempo electric guitar-led pop production that sonically highlights Mette’s distinctively, rhythmic vocal.
