DEMIRICOUS Release “Smoke Chaser”

The band comments:
“From a writing standpoint, we took a bit of a different approach on this one. With the chorus, we wanted to open it up with a huge melodic riff, and a catchy, anthemic hook. And to counteract the catchiness of the chorus and melody, we wanted to cap it with one of the ugliest moments on the entire record. “Smoke Chaser” lyrically is about how humanity has a false sense of relevance, as a result of technology. We are all addicted, and constantly chasing something we will never actually obtain.”

Introducing: FORREST ISN’T DEAD // New Single “Born or Made” Out Now!
“This song is one of my favorites because of the crisp energy that immediately draws you in upon first listen. And I think everyone can take something away from the lyrics of this one,” shares Forrest. “We drew a lot of inspiration from the first Halloween movie for the music video. We wanted to go for a gorilla style horror flick while still letting the deeper message shine through. This is our first video with director Noah Lamport and it was an amazing experience all around. I hope to get into more acting in my videos as our journey continues.”
beabadoobee Releases “See You Soon” Song and Video
“I feel like the idea behind ‘See You Soon’ is that it’s meant to make you feel like you’re tripping on shrooms. Or, I feel like the chorus especially, I want it to sound like a breath of fresh air, like a realization of some sort,” says beabadoobee. “I wrote it during a time where I was away a lot and making a lot of mistakes and doing a lot of things to help me figure a lot of stuff out. And I feel like I found the importance of doing that really, it was really therapeutic because it made me appreciate everything around me so much more. Being away and being by myself with my own thoughts, it was kind of like a punch in the face. And I guess it’s just really playing along with the fact that you know, it’s okay to make mistakes, as long as it makes you a stronger person, as long as it makes everything makes sense. And it’s important to be by yourself sometimes.”
