Unbroken Expanse – ‘Go’ Single & Video

From top to bottom, Unbroken Expanse take life and it’s fleeting opportunities seriously. Driven to take the necessary steps, their new single Go is an empowering rock anthem that just doesn’t quit.

‘During the writing of Go my partner, Jess, was days from giving birth to our son, Elvis… His impending arrival made me think more and more about how his generation will need to connect with each other more than any generation before it… the song is a message to him, and to all of us, to maintain a progressive, positive view of the world as often as we can. To move forward. To Go.’ – Wheezy (Singer, guitarist and songwriter)


“‘Proud’ perfectly describes what I’ve felt since I moved to L.A. on my own, away from all of my family – after everything that we’ve been through,” says Aaron Carpenter. “In 2015, I lost both my stepbrother and stepdad. They were both such big supporters and motivators of me pursuing my passion along with the rest of my family. I hope that ‘Proud’ resonates and helps people the same way that it’s helped me!”

NO TE VA GUSTAR Presents Their Last Single “POCO”

NoTeVaGustar bids farewell to the album celebrating their 25th anniversary, Otras Canciones, with a final single titled “Poco” alongside the talented Draco Rosa.

“Poco” is a track that works as a perfect example of the overall essence of the album. The band embarked on a reinterpretation of their own original songs, transforming them to a new identity – especially in those songs where stellar guest musicians participated in. This is the case of “Poco”, where Draco Rosa’s brilliant vocal interpretation adds to the delicate new arrangements and completely transforms the atmosphere of the song – renovating it radically from its original version.


Following the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the launch of the fastest growing song at Alternative Radio – “The Best” – the first single off their upcoming album, AWOLNATION has readied even more new music for fans from their forthcoming release. The latest is a new song, “California Halo Blue,” out everywhere now via Better Noise Music.


Sorry You Were Saying includes features from Blanco, Kinshasa and Master Peace, the mixtape features everything that makes Sam one of the most talked about British artists of late; witty storytelling, impeccable flows and a fluid approach to genre and tone. Additionally, Sam joined forces with designer Jobe Burns (of Concrete Objects) to create the artwork for the mixtape. Taking inspiration from the structure of tribal African masks, the duo created a sculptural time capsule of Wise as an animated resin sculpture.

Explore the dark corners of electro/alt-rock band LOWBORN with new single + video “Dark Inside”

It’s well past Halloween and Christmas cheer has started to approach, but electro/alternative rock band LOWBORN is delving into downward spirals and digging up demons instead. The video for “Dark Inside” pulls from “The Blair Witch Project” with haunting, dark rooms and shadows, and a similar “first-person found footage” style. As vocalist Wes Lauterbach stumbles through an ominous abandoned house he finds his bandmates performing in trances as he is grabbed by hands that don’t belong to anything human. While the music video provides a haunting chill and LOWBORN’s multiple-member-drumming staple that we all know and love, the single itself is an insane execution of LOWBORN’s ability to write and produce smash rock hits that can’t be compared to any another band.

Zikai – Do You Love Me Still?

“The song Is about the consequences of taking someone for granted, in a relationship in my case. I started writing it from my point of view but it seemed like the writing process became a better therapy for me if I tried to interpret the emotions and feelings of the guy I once loved. The words naturally came to me when I changed the perspective.

I wrote the song less than two weeks ago, posted a snippet on my instagram from the demo and the response was so amazing. I decided to be spontaneous n release it without a whole label release plan like my other songs had and am so proud to get it out there.”
