Halifax Rockers DALI VAN GOGH Persist through Fire & Brimstone with New High Octane “Little Hell”
With electricity surging from the moment Canadian rockers Dali Van Gogh’s new single first hits your ear, “Little Hell” is here, and available now!
“Little Hell” is the latest song presented through the band’s unique sonic framework, The Testimony — a collection of songs more cerebral than your average rock ballad.
Steeped in classic-sounding shoegaze, recalling such pivotal acts such as Cocteau Twins, Throwing Muses, and Lush, “Lungs” swirls in swaths of shimmering musical layers with their vocals peeking out of the clouds like rays of sunlight. Jewell adds, “I love the heaviness of this song with the heavenly harmonies. It’s one of my favorites to play live.” Arboles chimes in saying that the creative process in general felt very “embodied.” “Recording this song was a fav of mine too. I played my old Silvertone with Goldfoil pickups into an old big muff into my Fender deluxe reverb. We rarely use distorted sounds, so this was my one chance to get it right. I ended up layering fuzzed out sounds with a super clean layer, and kind of mixed them in and out to taste. Sapphire is a pedal genius and I think did this song in one track and it sounds absolutely huge. Her whole guitar situation in the last chorus blows my mind each listen.”
Tasha Shares New Single “Sorry’s Not Enough” || New Album ‘Tell Me What You Miss The Most’ Due Out 11/5 On Father/Daughter Records
Following the announcement last month of her forthcoming album Tell Me What You Miss The Most (due out November 5th via Father/Daughter Records), today Chicago based musician & poet Tasha has shared intimate new track “Sorry’s Not Enough”.
Speaking on the track, Tasha says: “Sorry’s Not Enough is a song about confronting your mistakes, and learning to love yourself through hurt and doubt. So many of my songs have relished in joy healing, so I enjoyed exploring darker feelings here, and finding new roads to go down musically that were grittier than I was used to. Through the tension and pain comes a great relief.”

Indian-American dance musician, Neil Sethi (aka AIR APPARENT), draws on the themes of self-growth and personal discovery in his single, and reminds listeners of the inherent beauty that can result from being alone with oneself, and allowing focus to sink from the mind the heart.

Philly’s Church Girls are at their best when they’re oscillating between despair and triumph equally, and their new song ‘Vacation’ is a perfect example.
Coping skills are usually last on the list (or outright forgotten) when it comes to dysfunctional families, so now, years later, Mariel finds her own, using her voice to replicate the deep inhales and exhales one might take when things feel just a bit too heavy.
The Reed Effect Release Their Video for “Rise Up”
Natalie Dean Releases “More Than This”
San Francisco, Bay Area Natalie Dean brings a soft rock-pop anthem sound to “More Than This” with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves. Natalie has mastered well the cross-over genre production of music writing many musicians these days are continuing to develop. No longer placing one’s own creativity in a box but being able to bend and change much like life really works today. “More Than This” can set itself very well in a variety of styles and sounds and find itself perfectly comfortable and at home in the indie, soft rock, pop world of today. “More Than This” is multi-layered and carries this blend of tones in a subliminal attitude that is Natalie Dean’s signature style.
