PLUM GREEN: “Moon Of Honey” Video Now Playing At New Noise Magazine
Somnambulistic is a stirring collection of dark lullabies. Each of its nine tracks ebb and flow with otherworldly grace manifesting one pulsing dream narrative. Guided by guitar, GREEN’s voice travels through walls of bowed soundscapes. “This is a great effort from PLUM GREEN to create a sound space of dark beauty,” writes Distorted Sound, adding, “Somnambulistic has such a wealth of quiet, powerful moments that really feel like you’re being steered through a dream of a strange and gorgeous place by a guide who has a tender care for the smaller places, both inner and outer body.” Observes Moshpit Nation, “Somnambulistic is for anyone who appreciates great songwriting or music which hits the rare mark of being both ethereal and wholly engaging. A sprawling, inescapable black and white watercolor, this is an album which will beguile you and send you willfully stumbling into its twisting arms.”
Following roadkill stoner pop hit “Dead Animals” and the video for “Glow” which earned 15000+ views, Faiyaz and the Wasted Chances mean business with the cautionary letter, “Antisocial,” addressing young artists.

Robin Hatch Shares New Single “Inspector” ft. Lowell Whitty from Upcoming Album ‘T.O.N.T.O.’, out 10/29 on Robin Records
Toronto-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Robin Hatch shared another new single today off her upcoming album T.O.N.T.O., the bubbling “Inspector.”
“Lowell Whitty plays drums on this Oingo Boingo-inspired track, which is somewhat a fun sonatina that plays around with time signatures,” said Robin. “Emotionally it’s about rewiring neural pathways through lightheartedness and humour in order to not constantly fear the dark and nighttime. It reminds me of the cool fall air right before Daylight Savings Time happens, and thought it evoked the feeling of getting to dress up for Halloween at whatever age.”

Isolated from the world,” states OMNIUM GATHERUM about their latest music video.

Oxford electro-pop duo pecq share video for dark, dreamy new single ‘Brittle’ || upcoming EP due early 2022
Merging atmospheric indie with a dark and shimmering electro-pop sound, ‘Brittle’ allows the duo to flex their production muscles. “It’s about programmed obsolescence. We always imagined it as a lonely machine singing from the dump, realising it was designed to die before it’s time, but the themes are very human – fear of ageing, death and being forgotten. It was originally written for a surround-sound and video installation made of a bunch of abandoned tellies,’ say the duo on the track.
WIEGEDOOD Release New Track and Video For “Nuages” Off Forthcoming Album
The band adds, “’There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road’ focuses on the filthiest and most disgusting parts of human nature and society. It steers clear from the typical Black Metal themes and concepts, instead zoning in on the struggle we lead within, trying to overcome the fact we are all made from that same filth. Exploring places the previous trilogy didn’t even scratch the surface of, both lyrically and musically. A first-hand look into pure disgust, a psychotic ride with synths, tape-recorders, hot club jazz and distressing samples. A definite switch from our previous work, a dark turn into something unexpected and unwelcome.”
