Check out my new single Lemonade!

You’re always supposed to give things your all, but be careful about putting your energy into people or things that won’t give any energy back. I sing about the slow-burning nature of the pain, a memory of naked skin, burns me from within like a fire on the western plain.

The newest single by Leo Ganza is called “Pandemic.” There is no symbolism, as it is inspired by exactly what you think it is. The addendum, is Ganza imagining a love story unfolding through the crisis. He also addresses the concurrent events of police brutality and the ensuing BLM movement. It’s as timely as a piece can be, and it might risk being a little alienating, if it weren’t so well done.

LYDIA CAN’T BREATHE Releases New Single “SHEEP” + Official Music Video

Hard rock metal quartet LYDIA CAN’T BREATHE released their brand new single titled “SHEEP” to all digital outlets today! The single is a fresh take on the band’s trademark sound with melodic guitars and dark tendencies. It showcases their ear candy intros, face melting guitar riffs, while still clinging to their heavy transitions and breakdowns.


Progressive metal artist Austin Taft has released a video for his song “Just Above Zero” via Metal Underground. The song is from his album Skeletons which will be released on CD on May 28th 2021.

Austin commented “In my view, songs should reward the listener for listening to the whole thing. If the listener hears one minute of a song and wouldn’t miss much in the way of new information by skipping the rest, it feels like a missed opportunity. So with that philosophy in mind, this song (and the album it is sourced from) aims to be exciting, challenging and unpredictable. The lyrics are about how frequently opportunities to improve situations for humankind seem to be squandered, whether at the ballot box or otherwise.”

She Drew The Gun delivers the captivating new video for ‘Cut Me Down’ inspired by the Chilean Las Tesis protests

Speaking about the new video, Louisa said, “The video is Inspired by the Las Tesis collective protests in Chile where thousands of women took to the streets and performed a song and dance using blindfolds in protest of structural state violence against women. It brought a whole new level to the idea of a protest song, and spread around the world becoming a transnational feminist act of solidarity.
