Amorie Offers Up Glistening Alt-pop Track ‘Goddess’ Ahead of Debut Album
The track came to fruition while working with long-distance producing partner Patrick Perez, as Amorie recalled a beat he shared with her when they began working together 5 years ago. The lightness and breezy energy of the track finally felt like it could be realised. ‘Goddess’ is the first single from her upcoming album AQUAREALM which is expected in March this year.
Queens-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Morgan grew up in central Pennsylvania, where he spent countless Sunday mornings amidst the broken strains and coffee breath of his church congregation. His first record, Starcrossed Losers, became the alias under which he would go on to release two more, Bind Us Anew and Strange Hesitations, each featuring his distinctive conglomeration of Americana styles, from stripped-down acoustic ballads and love-lorn parlor laments to roaring alt-country and throwback 60’s rock’n’roll.
Planetary Alt-Rock // Explosive Debut Single
Thematically, the song is a passionate ode to that triumphant love that feels just out of reach. “‘Stars’ is a bitter-sweet alt-rock song about love and loss. When you look up toward the stars with faith that you’ll be with your soul mate and stay with them even when they are gone,” confides Christoph Paul.
Brimming with a melodic pop sensibility and the true heart and soul of rock music, “Stars” is an exhilarating first taste of what’s to come from this rising trio.

Hayden Calnin Shares New Single “Dreamer”
The laidback, earthy track Calnin states, “is a bunch of questions I’d often ask myself in a relationship I was in at the time. We got so caught up in each other and had big ideas and dreams, but to actually make these things happen seemed to be so far out of reach and perhaps led to us not seeing eye to eye.” It’s the perfect sentiment to be shown alongside the cinematic video, featuring numerous locations and lush landscapes, triggering waves of nostalgia.

ODD CIRCUS: Improvisational Rock Trio Releases “Venadek” Video
ODD CIRCUS navigates 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. Compiled from free improvisations performed live and originally released independently last spring, Mantha was recorded by the band, mixed by Crews Carter and ODD CIRCUS, and mastered by Joseph Carra at Crystal Mastering (Melbourne, Australia) with cover art by Katharina Maisenbacher.
Dead American (ex-Saosin) release highly anticipated album New Nostalgia
Across 13 tracks, New Nostalgia lives up to it’s name and delivers classic, hard hitting post-hardcore with modern elements that give it a unique sonic imprint. While frustration is the driving point behind the theme of the record, clever lyrics and a combination of heart-wrenching and aggressive undertones make each song relatable to the listeners own experiences. The personalities of each band member shine through and demonstrate the groups prodigious songwriting ability, while making it clear that they were not trying to fit any “acceptable” molds. Rather, the album shines brightest by evoking the past, while looking toward the future with a sense of modernity and in-the-moment urgency.
Singer-songwriter and world-touring Ryan Tennis dropped his latest single, “Oh, Alexandra.” “It’s a tale as old as time, and now it’s my time to tell it,” muses the musician. The tale is one of unrequited love with a twist, and the lively single is an upbeat, heartfelt acoustic track that draws the listener in with its organic groove and conversational storytelling.
