Anna Shoemaker Announces Debut Album | New Single & Video “Everything is Fine” Out Now
With the release of her debut album, Anna is breaking out of the bedroom pop world into a more mature and intentional sound, writing her feelings as though you’ve lived them alongside her. Following last year’s singles, “Change My Mind,” “Sick!” and “It’s Depression (ft. Middle Part),” “Everything is Fine” is an electrifying and propulsive addition to her upcoming album. “It’s about burning it all down until the only thing left is you,” says Anna. “You are the only person who has the power to ruin your life.” The pairing video, which was directed by Josefine Cardoni, stars Anna in her own self-destructive fantasy, burning and destroying all that surrounds her until all she has left is herself. Watch the video here.

Blackened Bass Act, LUNA 13 Drops The Provocative LP, ‘Gorgo’ & New Single, “Hear My Call”
Provocative Black/Bass/Metal duo LUNA 13 have returned to bring their latest sonic assault, Gorgo featuring the single, “Hear My Call.”
LUNA 13 once again bring their curious hallmarks with the crossing over from electronica to black metal. Dr. Luna, the duo’s demented musical maestro creates the voluminous sound solely with synthesizers and distortion pedals by wrapping heavy distortion around sub-bass. Frontwoman Lilith Bathory brings the spectacle with brutal vocals and for the live show, trance – inducing dance moves behind her devil horns.
A sonically unexpected change from Mild West’s usual sound, ‘Nightfall’ utilises an irresistible pop-structure that oozes unexpected elements of disco and synth-pop goodness. Conceptually, ‘Nightfall’ explores entropy and the grand scale of time. Using driving synths to craft a rich sonic palette, Mild West captures the often unforgiving passage of time – days turn to night, winter to summer and years to decades, without regard for plans or expectations. A favourite among Mild West, ‘Nightfall’ has been perfected over three years and countless live performances. ‘Nightfall has been one of the band’s favourites to play live for a while now and it’s exciting to finally get the studio version out into the world,’ explains the band.
