MEXICAN DOGS – Release Rip-Roaring Video for New Single “She Cries Blues” {Out Now}

Cavorting their way through a thunderous blend of retro riffs, jovial drum beats and rip-roaring, live-ready vocals, “She Cries Blues” is a fuzzy glam-rock romp that touches on the past whilst barrelling hell for leather toward the future.


‘Indigo’, a track produced by Joy Anonymous and written by Ellauro, sings of sadness, melancholia and hope over slow, rolling drums and with her voice gliding like honey over the beat she sings “Lately, I’ve been feeling down / Maybe, I need someone else around.”


Chains Over Razors has just dropped their “self-titled” sophomore release, and the first single “Behind These Eyes” landed itself as the #2 most added spot on the Billboard (BDS) Mainstream Rock Indicator chart and the #1 most added spot on the Foundations chart on the first week of release. The guys had this to say about it, “Creating our sophomore self-titled album that is executive produced by the legendary Carmine Appice, released through DEKO Entertainment, and having our first single “Behind These Eyes” place #2 on the Billboard most added chart is surreal. Thank you to all who have listened, bought, or played our single or album!!!! This is a dream come true for us and the overwhelming support from everyone has been incredible. This album is one of the most ambitious and highly anticipated works that we have created and is now available to share with the world.” -Chains Over Razors

VERONICA FUSARO – ‘Better With You’ : brand new video for current single by Swiss singer-songwriter

Swiss singer-songwriter Veronica Fusaro has a small tattoo of a new moon on her wrist that is as subtle as her songs. “I’m a night person. It fascinates me,” she explains. “When you see the stars and the Milky Way – that’s when the space for thinking and dreaming opens up.” Having said this, it is surprising to discover that her bright and very sunny new single, the acoustic guitar-driven ‘Better With You’, is all about the joys of the morning. A very special morning, mind you. “Waking up gently, rays of sunshine pushing through the curtains, already nice and warm….and with the person who makes the moment perfect next to you….” she adds, coyly.

Widowspeak share visualiser for “The Drive” | New album “The Jacket” out now via Captured Tracks

Widowspeak on “The Drive” – “The Drive” is a song about balancing dreams and goals with realities, and questioning the prevalent idea that if you want something enough, you can just make it happen. It’s a little tongue-in-cheek, and it’s written from a place of acceptance more than lamenting anything. Within the original “storyline” of the record, the narrator has to decide if they are willing to sacrifice their integrity for success, and is considering how things might be easier (especially financially) if they did things differently. Of course it became more personal to our perspective, too. I think “The Drive” is about seeing the reward in taking things slow and being guided by your own purpose.

GRAMMA VEDETTA Release New Song “Transmission’s On”

Stoner metal band GRAMMA Vedetta are streaming their new single “Transmission’s On”. The song is from their upcoming release Hum of the New Machine which is out 27 May, 2022 via Mandrone Records.

The band comments:

“Transmission’s On” is a sarcastic interpretation of those random thoughts that pops in your head at night and keep you awake such as “you are not good enough, you ate too many carbs, you lost your job, you have to pay the rent.”

We’ve written down all those thoughts in verses, and put them on top of a chord progression that could be The Melvins covering Pink Floyd. It is a very dynamic song, with lots of ups and downs, a trippy exploration of the different personalities that our brain can create.
