VIDEO: Unsettling self-made Lynchian-meets-Bo Burnham visual from cacophonous craftsmen Chew Magna!
Teasing their forthcoming self-titled debut album, Manchester’s most uplifting cacophonous craftsmen Chew Magna, are serving up their own alt-rock antidote to lifelessness in the modern age with the ironically titled new single ‘Listless’ – complete with an unsettling self-made David Lynch inspired video.
Multi-million streamed, fast rising pop star Ross Harris has released the video for his new single ‘CRUEL’, out now via AWAL.
The track is a vibrant pop song with a huge chorus alongside a slick dancefloor ready 808 beat. The video features Ross painting his honest lyrics detailing a troubled relationship onto a blank canvas.

JOSEPH IZAYEA Releases New Single Featuring Doc Coyle of BAD WOLVES (Metalcore)
JOSEPH comments: “I am tremendously proud (and dare I say, aroused!) to announce the release of my second advanced single “So Resolved” off of my new collaboration record “Harder Truths” that arrives on Black Friday, 11/26/21. This track was composed by and features on guitar the legendary Doc Coyle. Arguably one of the hardest working guys in the business as far as heavy music goes; I am truly honored to have worked on this song with him and hugely grateful that despite the heinous demands on his time, he still made himself available to both take part in this project and ensure it stayed on schedule… all while delivering nothing short of a BANGER that pushed me to produce past all of my known limits. As anyone who knows him can attest; his good nature, friendliness, and consummate professionalism makes for a powerhouse in collaboration, as So Resolved will hopefully illustrate. Work on this album took nearly two years to complete, as honoring my commitments to From Under Concrete Kings, Seeking Sirens, and Sour Times was of paramount importance to ensure that none were negatively impacted by this enormous and frankly, fanciful undertaking. I hope you find it worth the wait!”

$NOT Flashes Fast Raps and Embraces His Inner Demon in Fast-Paced “GO!”
Spitting aggressive rhymes through his tightly-wrapped hoodies, there’s nothing Florida rapper $NOT can’t do–but for all his creativity, the 23-year-old rapper can flat out spit when he wants to. Showing off his rapidfire rhymes over a hyperactive instrumental, $NOT shares “GO!,” his new video single. Faced with arpeggiating synths and syncopated handclaps courtesy of producer Dee B, $NOT attacks the instrumental head on, heeding his own titular imperative as he goes in with fast-paced triplets, swerving from references to Magic School Bus and Malcolm In The Middle to unleashing nonchalantly intimidating stunts. In the video, $NOT cruises through the city with his homies in a canary yellow whip. He survives an encounter with the infamous Chucky The Doll, who enthusaistically joins the rapper’s crew after he decides he could never be as bad as $NOT.
