UK Band BAD SOUNDS Share New Single Featuring Ruti
Over the last year, genre-bending Bad Sounds have perfected the art of collaboration, even during lockdown, when they penned a song with rising neo-soul artist Ruti. Sharing a little more on how the song came to be, the band explained: “We kept writing songs that we thought were really special and really beautiful, and then we’d trample all over that beauty by trying to sing on them ourselves. But it was a HUGE game changer for us when we worked with BROODS on ‘Move Into Me’.
“Gemini”, the new single by Letting Up Despite Great Faults, is centered around the idea of forever. Friendships and loves can generate this enormous space yet it can be such a small feeling on a day to day basis that we easily, and often, forget how almost impossible it is to find someone that fits us forever. The song immediately creates an almost chaotic world of fuzzed noise, but when the patient, whispering vocals cut through, we see our different worlds can thrive together, hopefully forever.

Lancaster PA-Based Singer-Songwriter JESSICA SMUCKER Shares Her Dark Premonitions in Irresistible Synth Pop on New Single “Dinosaurs”
The song balances melodic buoyancy provided by her five-piece band, with markedly darker themes that reflect a nagging sense of despair for a future that to her resembles a “slow-rolling apocalypse.” Indeed, the song wastes no time illustrating that fact as the opening lyric reads: “I thought the world would end in blood and bones…” Dark stuff for sure, but the song is not without a sense of optimism as well. Ultimately, Smucker chooses living in the moment and embracing the hope found in nurturing a home and family and finding a fragile peace. “Dinosaurs” is available now (8/13).

After the zestful “Suffocate”, English alternative metal act Junction 28 now releases the second single off the group’s debut EP (“Before You Drown”, now available everywhere) – the adrenalizing and charged “Don’t Say”! Further pushing the group’s stylistic evolution, this song takes the sounds of traditional metal, nu-metal and post-hardcore, and infuses them with a heavy focus on sampling and electronics, integrating unconventional dance rhythms and groove into the band’s already rich sonic palette. Topically, it discusses the disparities of a fraught romantic relationship, examining the wasteful and destructive cycles that will result in its end. “Don’t Say” is an integral part of Junction 28’s first EP – “Before You Drown” – named for the final lyrics on closing track “Walls”.
