LENNE Releases New Lyric Video for Single “The Screaming”

“This song has a bit of a different attack than the other tunes on our EP. Initially, I was not in a good head space while writing/recording this one. So a few of our studio friends helped fill in some vocals. But after time working out some personal issues, we all agreed it was worth going back in and letting me at it. We ended up keeping all the new takes after just a few hours of recording. Sometimes it’s better to walk away for a minute and come back fresh than trying to force a moment or feeling,” says Leonard Cerzosie Jr.

electronic artists INZO and Elohim release “Earth Magic” single

“Earth Magic,” via Lowly. (home of NGHTMRE, Said The Sky, TroyBoi, and more,) heralds a new direction for his sound marked by the more quiet, introspective areas of his range. Created during lockdown, Earth Magic is more cinematic and calmer, with lo-fi beats, piano breakdowns, and transcendent synth beams—a byproduct of INZO’s renewed focus on health and wellness. Making music itself has become therapeutic for him, so it’s fitting that his new work reflects that cozy headspace. As much as he enjoys playing live, he especially loves the quieter, more intimate moments of listening back to a track he’s made for the first time and realizing it’s exactly what he’d envisioned.

Ariel Arbisser Shines in Her Electro-Pop single “Rabbit Hole”

“Rabbit Hole” is that urge to be reckless but waiting for someone else to push you over the edge. The indie electro-pop single is a follow up to her last single “Bloodshed.” “Thematically there’s some crossover, but ‘Rabbit Hole’ comes down from the rage-filled fever pitch of ‘Bloodshed’ to this which is a more restrained, sexy, slow-burn,” she shares. “Things haven’t settled yet. The “dark side” is still enticing, maybe even more comfortable than it was before. The full song sonically is a true, addictive journey downward.”

Get High and Listen to Music by The Derevolutions

The Beatles forever changed popular music after being introduced to pot by Bob Dylan and then again after being secretly dosed LSD by their dentist. And I imagine in those timeless moments they listened to music with a changed perspective and the things they heard were so remarkable that life on earth, for most, was never the same since. And this song is a homage to those moments in time that have brought so much joy to the world, high or not. I just wanted to write a song that made people smile.

THE WRECKS Find Solace After Breakup By Smashing Things In “Things You Make Me Do” Video

Today, alt-pop band The Wrecks share a dynamic video for their newly released blustering alt pop single “Things You Make Me Do.” While the song is about being in an inescapable one-way relationship, the cinematic video (directed by: Natalie Hewitt) starts off by following vocalist/producer Nick Anderson around a sun-filled house doing his daily morning routine until he ventures outside to take out his frustrations by smashing things.


“Announcing my first ever album is such an important moment in my career that honestly, sometimes I wasn’t even sure would happen. But after 3 years of hard work, I just can’t wait to share this body of work with all of you who have helped me get to where I am today,” Mimi shares. “The album is named Amelia, my full first name, as there are two sides of me that I want people to get to know. There’s Amelia, the girl from the UK countryside who loves to be at home with her family, friends, and dogs; and Mimi, the pop artist who loves to be up on stage traveling the world. It was important for me to capture this duality with songs written for both of those girls, and I’m excited for you all to get to know them!”

The song was co-written with Nixon Boyd, a Toronto producer and one of the principal songwriters in Hollerado. When Bergé and Boyd wrote this song, Bergé was living inside the back closet of the guitar shop he worked in and the vocals were recorded in the basement of that store.
