Pop Newcomer Ed Staal Shares Video For ‘Baby Blue’
Hertfordshire up and coming UK pop artist Ed Staal is back with his new single ‘Baby Blue’ taken from the upcoming EP Battle Scars & Broken Hearts. Self-recorded and produced, the 24-year-old’s unique style fuses elements of old school Justin Timberlake with hints of John Mayer and a 70’s soul to create a striking alt-pop-come-indie sound.
A dazzling collage of My So Called Life-era angst intersecting introspective post-grunge nostalgia and the first single from the self-produced debut full-length from Olivia Martinez and Cody Von Lehmden, “Girls At Parties” captures the dizzying intensity of the ever-changing world during young adulthood. The shadowy single is vivid and alluring, juxtaposing an adrenalin-jolting, technicolor Baz Lurhmann soundtrack-esque atmosphere with the creative versatility of Martinez as a storyteller. She introduces listeners to the album’s first character: the omnipotent narrator.

Bailey James Releases The Perfect Breakup Anthem “Don’t Need Ya”
Bailey James’ hidden power lies in the quiet moments found in her latest release “Don’t Need Ya.” Written with a fresh start in mind and accompanied by seamless acoustic guitar, the song can be received as an indie country tune as easily as an alt-pop track. James’ crystal-clear vocals are effortless, sexy, and raw while retaining a unique tone. In addition, the chorus where Bailey sends a message about empowerment (“Cuz, I put a record on/Dropped the needle/On a goodbye song/I don’t need ya”) is perfectly matched with a more upbeat melody, which helps convey the idea of not depending on someone else and being happy.

Ukrainian Metalcore Unit SPACE OF VARIATIONS Reveals New Single “DNA Molecule in a Million of Dimensions” + Official Video
Your new favorite alt-pop artist, TITUS BANK has hit the ground running. The Vancouver-based singer-songwriter and pop connoisseur has only just started releasing music and has already entered the next phase of his music career. With two singles out that have garnered praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and massive support from editorial playlist curators internationally, it is evident that Titus has tapped into something special as a result of refining his prolific songwriting ability into a clear and impressive artistic vision.
Hailing from Upstate New York, Blaine Holcomb left all familiarity to move fifteen hours away to Nashville to pursue his music career. A country artist by trade, Blaine notes the influence traditional and 90s country has had on his sound while recognizing the importance of incorporating newer sonic trends into his music to keep things fresh. Blaine opened for a few national acts such as Easton Corbin, Justin Moore, and Josh Thompson. Since moving to Nashville, Blaine has performed regularly on Broadway as well as at The Stage, Legends Corner, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, The Valentine, and Famous Saloon. His song “Then There’s You” was added to Spotify’s New Music Nashville playlist, and his single “When It Comes To Love” was added to Spotify Fresh Finds. Blaine considers the primary themes of his work to be love, heartbreak, drinking, partying, having fun, and growing up, although he expects these to change with time. Blaine hopes to leave a lasting, positive impact on fans with his music, and hopes to put on shows that leave people with the feeling that they’ve just attended the best one of their lives.
Indie-Pop Songwriter, Toho, Releases “OFF”
Archers Of Loaf share new single “Screaming Undercover” | New album “Reason In Decline” out 21st October via Merge Records
“‘Screaming Undercover’ is definitely the heart of the new record,” says Eric Bachmann. “It came out quickly and it was the first lyric I actually finished for this collection of songs. I felt good after it had been written because I finally knew the point of view from which I could write more Archers songs. It had an urgent frustration in it that expressed what we were all feeling towards what the pandemic had taken from us, as well as the anger I felt personally towards the Trump administration and its dysfunctional embrace of anti-intellectualism, which unfortunately still seems to be infecting the culture and political climate.”
