Dublin Songwriter Tony Tyrrell Weaves An Ominous Tale of Betrayal on “Mocking Bird”
On his seething new single “Mocking Bird,” out today on all platforms, the Dublin-based songwriter Tony Tyrrell weaves an ominous tale of betrayal and heartbreak. “This one is personal, reflecting a life experience that struck a chord,” he explains. “The sweep and depth of the production captures the sort of all-enveloping feeling I had – the song has a relentless drive towards an inevitable end.” Featured on his debut solo album ‘Conviction,’ out August 12th, “Mocking Bird” follows the release of the album’s second single “Another Day,” a stately ballad about impermanence and the reassurance that everything passes.

The cinematic yet empathetic track gives listeners a deep understanding of the profundity and emotional care The A.M.s possess through their nostalgic lyrics. “Humans coping with separation – whether because of adoption, quarantine, distance, or death – try as we might, we can only do so much,” The A.M.s state. “Continually, we hope for the stars to align so we can all be reunited once again.” The six-minute track centers around the feeling of longing for someone in hopes of reuniting with them once more. “But clouds begin to gather, the night no longer clear. Celestial friends move on, I’m wishing they were near,” is a line expressing both metaphorically and literally times of separation. “I like to write in metaphors, and I often use nature as inspiration. The richness and sonic range of textures attempts to capture the immense vastness of the sky while the moments of quiet remind us of being solitary, separated within that vastness,” says Langan. According to Libertini, “Spiritually, we’ve been a band way longer. Probably from a past life.” The track depicts that the stars will align again and bring people together.

Indie Rockers FORTY FEET TALL Exposes the Ugly Creep Hiding Behind the Picture-Perfect Date in “BOIL” Video. New EP out September 23.
“‘BOIL” started as a demo in singer Cole [Gann]’s bedroom and quickly exploded into what it is now: a forceful and rage-filled song directed at creeps and misogynists everywhere,” explains Portland-based indie rockers Forty Feet Tall about their new single. “It’s our hardest-hitting song to date and sets the tone nicely for our up-and-coming EP.” Taken from BOIL out on September 23 via Magnetic Moon, the song’s cartoonishly harrowing video directed by Sela Shiloni, plays like a horror film whose villain is a bloody zombified creep who disguises his true self before his date.

With 3M views on YouTube, and another 1.5M streams on Spotify, the regional hit, “Fuck My Cousin,” was Zay’s first lyrical shot at his cousin that went viral earlier this year for its unshackled aggression and realness. It’s an understatement to say that this track is personal, and he brings in heavy hitter Lil Durk to show how serious he is, and to give Durk the chance to get some things off his chest, as well. Lil Zay Osama and Durk set the record straight: “blood is thicker than water” but blood won’t guarantee loyalty.
