NEW // Scorcher ft Tion Wayne – ‘Ops’

KAYE Resurrects as the Sacrilegious Rock Icon her Family Always Feared in “Neon God”
“This song has so many layers of meaning for me. I was raised in a conservative Christian household, and to my Chinese immigrant parents, becoming a rock star was the most Satanic thing I could possibly do. I had a promise ring! I went to church camp,” laughs KAYE about today’s release. “One day, I snuck out of the house and experienced my first punk show, and that was when I was TRULY evangelized. I found belonging with all these other misfits, and THAT became my church. Since then, I’ve been fascinated by this idea of how not just rock stars, but politicians, celebrities, actors, tech leaders, news anchors—all have their own cults of personality. It made me think about what I worship now, as opposed to back then—has one idol just been swapped for another?”

Out Now: ZILLION releases new single & music video “Potluck Lunch For The Cannibals” (RIYL: Don Broco, Sueco)
On the new track ZILLION shares, “Those of us who are naive to what truly fuels our perception of reality, unaware of our own damage and how it distorts our relationships are trapped in a purgatory like dream state. When we’re unable to handle and manage our shit, emotions, and baggage, we continually hurt those around us. There’s a golden door in this room. On the other side of that door is self actualization, self awareness, those who have become intimate with their own self enough to transcend to a healthier higher frequency/existence.”

gavn!’s New Video + Single “I’d Hate Me Too” Releasing Friday, June 10
“I’d Hate Me Too” paints a vivid picture of a feeling that is all too familiar to those who have experienced a toxic relationship – the feeling of self-hatred and doubt as you turn into someone you know longer recognize. The track juxtaposes a bright and poppy instrumental against harsh and spiteful lyrics, like a dead flower in a newly assembled garden. It’s the perfect track to scream in the car after deciding to move on from the person (or thing) that’s holding you back.
