ICYMI: Alt-pop femme fatale Cami Petyn shares fiery single “Psycho Bitch”
LA based alt-pop songstress Cami Petyn released her new single and video “Psycho Bitch” on Friday, September 10th.

Richard Dawson is the diminutive Geordie troubadour whose moving songs have been described as state-of-the-nation addresses, even—or perhaps especially—when he’s singing about pre-medieval peasants. Circle are the genre-straddling pioneers of The New Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal, known for wearing spandex or dead fish onstage and singing in a made-up language.
Multifaceted Electro-Indie Singer-Songwriter Portair Announces New EP; Shares “Out Of Focus”
Alternative singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, graphic designer/artist, and producer Portair will release his second EP, The Light That Breaks, on January 14th. A renewed search for meaning drove much of his first EP, The Light That Gives, released earlier this summer. With The Ice that Breaks, he’s moved on from a breakup with organized religion to making up for lost time. “I wanted them to feel somewhat connected—not two separate bodies of work,” says the singer/songwriter/producer. “‘The Light That Gives’ is the sun that grows a plant from a seed. ‘The Ice That Breaks’ is where all of a sudden you reach a certain age and wonder, how do I live my best life with what I’ve got?”
MISANTHUR Premieres New Song, “On The Heights of Despair”
MISANTHUR comments: The second single ‘On the Heights of Despair’ was inspired by the book with the same title, written by one of the most prominent philosophers of nihilism – Emil Cioran. The dark, heavy and eerie atmosphere is intertwined with the soothing yet cruel cathartic moment. The song expresses the loathing of the passing time but also shows the dimmed fire of hope in one’s mundane existence, which is perfectly connected with the full concept of the upcoming debut album, ‘Ephemeris.'”
Heavy electronica artist SYNESTHEMA has released their song “Apollo’s Voyage” via Ghost Cult Magazine. The track is from the upcoming C Squared Underground Music Compilation which will be released on September 17th 2021. The compilation features music from artists like BOOK OF WYRMS, LUTHARO, LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT, GAIA GUARDA, DUNCAN EVANS and TORN BETWEEN TWO WORLDS.
SYNESTHEMA commented on the song “Apollo’s Voyage” was, until now, only included as a bonus track in the extended version of my debut album “Starlust”. It has SYNESTHEMAs signature space feel, uplifting melodies, dance-able beats and a sense of narrative progression – as if we were following the passengers of the Apollo 17 shuttle, which ended in the successful landing of the Moon.”

The band commented about the release “We’re both extremely excited to be releasing our debut full-length, Samhainn.

Wave Break Release New Single “Tug of War”
Tug of War is about the unrealistic expectations some friends have for you even when you’re at your limit with the stresses of life and feeling like you can’t keep up with it all. It’s about feeling like everyone needs something from you, and saying that you also need some time for yourself. I’ve lost a couple friends recently because of this.
Summer’s coming to an end, and with it, the end of Golden Boots’ summer singles releases. The grand finale is in the form of their collaborative take on “The Pied Piper,” (ft. Birdie Busch, Todd Erk, & Floating Action) which is out now. We’d love if you’d share it!
