The Altered Hours share new video for psychedelic single ‘All Amnesia’

“The lyrics represent what it means to forget the past and to be guided only by the desire of the moment. It speaks to the idea that forgetting or suppressing history can lead to erasure of the future and how unwillingness to face our reality leaves us floating in a hedonistic present”

Rising R&B Singer-Songwriter MESHAE Releases Official New Single, “KICK IT”

ERDVE Unveils New Album Details, Shares First Single

The band comments: “‘Lavondėmės’ in the Lithuanian language is a word describing Livor mortis, also known as hypostasis, which is an accumulation of stagnated blood causing a purplish red skin colour of a deceased body. This song and video is a metaphor for inner stagnation and an overwhelming effort to overcome it. The idea is closely related to the main theme of the album ‘Savigaila’ which translates as ‘self-pity.’ The visual is portraying a sense of helplessness in a search for meaning through an endless mind clutter. Being obstructed by senseless actions, it is difficult to maintain directional movement and therefore even more difficult to accept responsibility for your own self, being able to create your own meaning to break free from stagnation and therefore achieve happiness.”


The track was produced by Winnetka frontman Matthew Koma, and co-written by Koma, Dan Book and Sasha Sloan. Wistful lyrics “It doesn’t mean, it doesn’t mean that I loved you any less/Just cause we reached the end” are surrounded by a dreamy, indie pop bouncing melodies, a signature sound that Koma and band excel at.

Cop Kid share new single ‘Reservoir Beach’ | Announce Noah Cyrus support show (out now via 22Twenty)

Reservoir Beach is more of the duo’s bright & playful glitch-pop, riddled with Gen-Z lyricism of general anxiety. “We wrote this song about a reservoir that we both live by. It’s the summer spot that you go to and hang around, getting high with your friends. Utah is land locked so this the closest thing we have to a beach. Anyone who lives by the ocean would laugh at it. It’s not a lake or much of a beach, but it’s the closest thing we have. The song is a catchy pop tune about losing track of yourself and time and getting into the loop of aimlessness. It’s like that movie Groundhog Day- everyday kind of starts to feel the same, but you don’t really mind it too much.”
