Biig Piig Releases Two New Tracks “Oh No / Liahr”

Today, Biig Piig has dropped two brand new tracks, “Oh No” and “Liahr.” The songs both perfectly capture her ability to find moments of calm and clarity even in the most chaotic of circumstances.

“Oh No” was written about that timely feeling, says Jess, “that the safest place to be was my room – when I get paranoid or anxious or upset, hiding away felt like the easiest thing to do. Which is mad, because then quarantine happened and that literally was the safest place to be.”

We Are Unforgiven.

The latest single from our second record is out now! Watch the music video and stream it on Apple Music, Spotify, Bandcamp, or wherever you get your tunes.

SHAED Drops Video for New Single “No Other Way” | #1 Most Added @ Alt Radio!

Directed by Miles & AJ – who have created videos for Billie Eilish, JADEN, Kehlani and more – the band shot “No Other Way” utilizing a giant LED wall and virtual production, a new technique implemented during season one of The Mandalorian and on the forthcoming film The Batman. The cut shows the trio exploring stunning environments and battling the elements while vocalist Chelsea Lee brings her powerful performance on the band’s new anthem to life.

We wrote this song as a reminder to live in the moment and do what you believe is right, without letting anything or anyone take you off course. In this video we had the opportunity to use cutting edge technology to go face-to-face with a desert sandstorm, blizzard, and torrential monsoon, all from a studio in Tampa. As a trio we’re ready to face whatever life throws our way. – SHAED

ALX & STUNNAGONMAKEIT Hit the Club in the Slick “Stranger” Video

Bursting out of Naples, FL with a fresh sound, ALX blurs the lines between trap music and modern pop. Finding the ideal visual accompaniment for his synth-heavy new single, ALX shares “Stranger,” his new music video. Mixing vintage synth arpeggios with resonant 808s and trap’s trademark cicada hi-hat pattern, “Stranger” is an anthem dedicated to lust-at-first-sight, describing the precise moment that ALX falls head-over-heels. In the video, directed by Jochi Saca, ALX and guest rapper STUNNAGONMAKEIT hit the club, dressed to the nines in suits and sunglasses, where they encounter a stunning beauty in a red dress. Though she initially seems receptive to their moves, the femme fatale has a sinister motive, tying ALX and STUNNA up in the club’s back room and taking them for all they’ve got.

Mikey Votano unveils retro rock n roll style video for his cover of Gnarls Barkley mega hit ‘Crazy’

‘Crazy’ has always had an extra special meaning for me, as I child I was often labelled that in a direct reference to the symptoms of my ADHD & anxiety. Many people suffer from mental illness & all of us have circumstances where we feel similar symptoms, possibly even asking the question, Does that make me crazy? Simply asking that question pretty much guarantees you’re not crazy, I like the idea of taking control of words used against you and that is definitely a large part of the reason why I really enjoyed reworking this track.” MIKEY VOTANO

Elephant Gym share new video and song, “Dear Humans”

In a time like 2020, this is the song we wrote —— “Dear Humans”.

To all the living humans who expect or are afraid of the coming of apocalypse: People made big mistakes. People regretted making them. People admitted the wrongs. Now, people are begging to be forgiven by the world. But why not start making amends right away? Love those who deserve to be loved. Cherish every form of life and every inch of land.

This letter is written to the humans who left the Earth when the apocalypse came. We are the pets that accompanied you in the past, but then you left us here alone. We are dogs, cats, turtles and potted plants.

And now, please listen to what we have to say.

He now goes even further, questioning the fabric of life itself with Electron, his new single examining what, amongst the transience of everything around us, is eternal. It doesn’t get more fundamental than questioning life itself but Nonviolenze is an artist quite unlike any other – singer, songwriter, musician and painter, Nonviolenze is a boundary-breaking creative using art to challenge concepts and beliefs.

LOW ISLAND – Release ‘Don’t Let The Light In’ Video

‘This video was shot in the same house the we recorded in the song in – a makeshift studio in rural France where we were recording just before the beginning of lockdown in March. We came back when restrictions eased and have been based here for a month working on new music and recordings. This particular room features in a lot of the new music – we used it to record everything from percussion, backing vocals, piano, synths and guitars – and it’s played a big part in binding the new material together, placing disparate sounds in one space. It’s also a space that is very emotionally resonant for us; it’s the place we’ve been to bookend this crazy year, where we’ve finished so much new music and now filmed live performances in. Don’t Let The Light In is a song all about trying to capture memories – this room has captured our 2020, the highs, lows and everything in between’.
