Poliça Share New Single “Forget Me Now,”

Poliça today shared their rousing, defiant new single “Forget Me Now,” the second from the band’s forthcoming album When We Stay Alive, due out January 31st, 2020, via Memphis Industries. “‘Forget Me Now’ is letting off some steam. It’s about recognizing a pattern of choosing people who can’t love you how you wish to be loved. It’s still remaining very grateful, counting blessings day and night; but don’t confuse being at peace with being a pushover,” says singer Channy Leaneagh. “I think I wrote these words while angry-shoveling this winter. How does it go? ‘Choose a liar once and that’s the liar’s fault; choose a liar three times and it seems maybe I likes liars?’ All the songs are about me and none of them are; this isn’t an excerpt from my diary but it has been many times.”

Clear Eyes – “Let me Know” Feat. Lauren Jauregui & Drew Love of THEY.

Clear Eyes is Jeremy Lloyd, who is one half of platinum-selling duo Marian Hill. Created as a production outlay beyond the well known sound of Marian Hill, songs like this delve into a creative process that’s extended two years. For him the Clear Eyes project is about a feeling of perspective — a moment when you can see everything from far away with a serene clarity. Both Drew and Lauren verses were written when they were really going through it. It’s about how vital it is to communicate your feelings in a relationship, even if it feels like doing so would put everything at risk.

Alex Ebert Announces Ambitious Sophomore Album ‘I vs I’, Teases More New Music Coming in 2020

Today, indie folk hitmaker Alex Ebert announces his most expansive album yet: ‘I vs. I’ (out January 31st via Community Music & AWAL). The eclectic collection of songs is a sprawling examination of existence tackling subjects that pre-occupy mankind, from love and sex (“Her Love”, “Fluid”) to the passage of time and the chase for eternal youth (“Automatic Youth”). On ‘I vs. I’, Alex crafts a story about “personal futurism” via the creation of an anti-hero moving through an increasingly unfamiliar world. Tackling these heady topics with a range of sounds just as immense, from the fun-punk sound that fans of Ima Robot are familiar with to more doleful indietronic folk reflections in the vein of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, this indie folk mainstay’s second solo record following 2011’s ‘Alexander’ solidifies his place among the pantheon of alternative music’s finest.
