New Eddie Davis
Singer/songwriter Eddie Davis expressed a passion for entertaining at a young age. Surrounded by vinyl, he was influenced by 60s and 70s era classic rock music and inspired by big vocals and colourful lyrics. This transformed into a genuine desire to emulate the monumental artists of that time through his own meaningful writings and performances.
ODD CIRCUS’ music explores the suspension of space and time navigating a boundary-less sonic landscape that embraces the unknown and welcomes the bizarre. The result is an experimental style of psychedelic art-rock that weaves its way into garage, fusion, krautrock, no wave, post-rock, noise, hard psych, and sci-fi prog.
ARLIE RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘wait a minute’
“I wrote this song while I was still in college, and we’ve been playing it live since our first shows as Arlie. WAM was a response to a collage of musical sentiments and ideas I was consuming at the time, via existentialist writers like Camus and Dostoyevsky, along with The Beach Boys, The Kinks, and The Zombies. I actually got school credit for making the original demo of this song, as part of an independent study with one of my favorite professors, who is a mentor of mine and whose car is featured in the music video! I was thrilled to have a chance to reference Tom Sawyer’s funeral prank in a song about existentialism. And the irony of singing “If it’s paradise that’s after life, I wonder why we waste our time on the world” over a 60s psychedelic / baroque-pop musical kaleidescope allows me to have a sense of humor about my own suffering — this song is a triumph, as long as you don’t take the advice of the speaker too literally.”

ISRAELI ROCKERS WALKWAYS UNVEIL NEW SINGLE, “YOU FOUND ME,” ANNOUNCE LIVE DATES
“‘You Found Me’ is a song telling the story of how after a devastating betrayal in a past relationship,” explains Ran. “I lost myself completely in rage and overwhelming urges for revenge. I lost all ability to love, or be romantic in any way, let alone care about anyone or anything. Then came the woman who later became my wife – she was strong enough and cared enough to be there for me and love me through my lowest points and slowly teach me to love and be truly happy again. The song is written to her. This song is also a message to remind people who are down, depressed, heartbroken, or going through hard times – it always gets better. Stay strong through the tough times and look for the positive light to help you through them.”
