Austin’s Soul, Funk Band Honey Made Releases

The Austin based funk and soul band Honey Made releases their newest single “Upstairs” out now! The new song is the classic story of a cat and mouse game that interested couples can play against a retro do-wap backbeat. Save and download here: https://lnk.to/Upstairs

With the new single, the always playful and fun band asks the question that sits on everyone’s tongues when chasing their crush … “What’s going on Upstairs?” meaning “What are you thinking? What’s going on in that head of yours?” But by the end of the song when the couple realizes each other’s interest, it turns to “So, whatcha got going on upstairs”? as the couple makes their way to the bedroom.

Bonny Light Horseman today released “Summer Dream,” the warm and tender second single off their anticipated new album Rolling Golden Holy, due out on October 7th via 37d03d Records. “I think of ‘Summer Dream’ as the ultimate example of the ‘yes, and’ process we got into for this record,” explains Mitchell. “There was something we could all feel about this ‘ghost of a summer’s past,’ so the scene is true to each of us but somehow remains mysterious–a phantom. We could have sung that wordless outro for an hour, and in the rough track we basically did.

Silversun Pickups Announce New Album, Physical Thrills, To Be Released On August 19th

The band today also share “Scared Together,” the first single from Physical Thrills along with the new music video directed by Claire Marie Vogel. Brian Aubert shared about the album “You never know what can bring two people together. Sometimes it’s something light and comfy. Sometimes it’s a shared love of some kind of totem or idol that is dear. Other times, it’s something a little more dreadful. But whatever works I say. To each their own. This song is about becoming close and intimate with someone through hardship. Being thrown into something quite frightening brings out some shared qualities that connect them.”

Fast-rising talent TASMAN KEITH unleashes his debut project A COLOUR UNDONE

At its centre, A Colour Undone revolves around a doomed romance – one that slows and, ultimately, brings forward the unhealthy ego that defines the record’s opening stanza, propelling Tasman toward self-reflection, reconciliation and, at last, clarity. With the majority of the project recorded over just six days (executive produced by Tasman Keith and Kwame) is the product of a unique mind, deft in its embrace of imperfection and devoid of overthinking. Mixing dual personalities from the frenetic, industrial opener ‘WATCH UR STEP’ to the contentment of penultimate track ‘HEAVEN WITH U’, the project expertly navigates different soundscapes – a testament to the growing artistic confidence of the rising artist. Tasman articulates his heartbreak and vulnerability with a directness that, even for such an eloquent lyricist, proved more personally challenging than any subject matter he’s addressed before.

Kitsuné share new Ade single “Opposites”

DIY auteur Ade has just shared a bespoke single “Opposites,” recorded for Kitsuné’s Singles series. The song picks up where his confidently abstract debut album Midnight Pizza left off last year, diving deep into the electronic influences that drove some of the dancier material on the album. “‘Opposites’ came about as a dance track experiment.” states Ade, “ I had a lot of fun making ‘Another Weekend’ from my first record, I wanted to go a little deeper down that rabbit hole and see what else I could find. Once I laid the vocal sample in the chorus, the story felt very clear – what do you do when you’re falling for someone who your friends think is trouble?”

New Sunny & The Sunliners Single “If I Could See You Now” Out Today

Most of Sunny & The Sunliners biggest tunes are slowies or mid-tempo ballads, but here they turn up the heat with the dance floor filler “If I Could See You Now.” Originally released as the B side to their stellar classic “Should I Take You Home,” which was billed as the plug side of the promo pressing, “If I Could See You Now” truly gives that A side a run for its money from the instant the organ intro starts to when the drum beat kicks and and all bets are off.

Singer/Songwriter Trey Connor Releases New Single

Tired is a song about missing someone so bad that you feel lost, burned out, and beaten down without them. It’s also about losing steam and undergoing a steady mental decline. Life is full of ups and downs, but sometimes those downs can drag you to a place that’s hard to come back from. You start to lose touch with yourself and reality, and you find yourself in the backseat of your own life.
