‘X-Man’ sees James put his own modernist spin to some throwback R&B / pop crossover flavour, the song’s lilting melody and sunbathed beats embedding itself within your mind after just one listen.

The Atlanta-based punk group have announced that they have signed to Pittsburgh-indie A-F Records and will be releasing a new album titled Beg A Promise in the fall.

KATIE ALICE GREER shares video for “Captivated” from debut solo LP ‘Barbarism’ out 6/24 on FourFour Records

Of the video’s concept, Greer shares: “This is a creepy song, in my mind, and I wanted to lean into that for both the production and the video’s narrative. In the video, a woman is intermittently experiencing time in reverse. She sees a plane fly overhead in a field and moments later, it flies backwards. She carries a suitcase full of money and now wonders where it came from. After experiencing time in reverse, she questions whether or not her experiences ever happened at all; she wonders whether she is in the present moment, caught in a daydream or a memory. In the video we are experiencing her mind’s chopped and shuffled versions of both, none of what she’s seeing or remembering (wandering at night, a woman in a yellow skirt, a gloved hand reaching for her in the field) makes any sense to her anymore. She is losing her sense of reality, and simultaneously trying to piece it back together with the few and unreliable clues she has left.”
