Shira Elias (formerly of Turkuaz) shares soulful single “EARTH SUN” ahead of EP release
Out today, the smooth, soulful track “EARTH SUN” details a lack of communication between two people that ultimately hinders their ability to connect. Elias explains, “It talks about all of the things you wish you could say but can’t.” It sees Elias attempt to preserve herself, wrestling with the desire to stay in a relationship that may cause her to dilute parts of who she is. Elias continues, “When someone you love is trying to force their beliefs and narratives on you and you want to have a relationship, but you just can’t sacrifice your truth. So this song is about that reckoning.” Sonically, it weaves in and out of a very honest and emotional tone, shifting to a confident and sassy one, and wraps into a dreamlike section. “All of this is evoking the rollercoaster of emotions that happen when two people can’t get on the same page.” The track also features piano by jazz-funk group Ghost-Note’s Dominique Xavier Taplin.
Elijah the Boy Drops Steamy Heartbreak Anthem “Over You”

Produced by Navi Beats (YungBleu, Mariah Carey) and mixed by MixedByAuden, “Over You” is compelling, personal, and relatable.
Out January 13th, the forthcoming album marks the loudest, lushest and most liberating music to date for the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and published author, but “Lydia” serves as one of the LP’s sobering respites.

Parker Lane Announces New Album ‘Kaleidoscope’ & Releases New Single “How You Feel”
“This album is the story of how I’ve felt over the past ten years. It’s the confusion, darkness, and ultimately rebirth of my inner child,” front man Printz Board shares about the record. “Personally, my mom is my Kaleidoscope. She was 13 when she got pregnant with me. She didn’t look at it as a failure, but as an opportunity. We had nothing, but she moved to California and made me believe I can do anything.”
EDEN RAIN RETURNS WITH STUNNING NEW SINGLE ‘ OH GOD’// LISTEN HERE
Seattle Noise-Punk Band, FAKE HANDS, Release Fiery New Rock Single “Coming Through”
The song’s gestation has been a tumultuous process, as singer/songwriter Finn Andrews describes: “In the year before I started writing this album, I really didn’t think I’d ever write another album again. I was done. I’d irreparably broken my wrist on stage. Then this song came shimmying down the drainpipe, and it really seemed to be encouraging me to carry on. It is, embarrassingly enough, a song about writing songs, written at what I admit was a pretty low ebb for me emotionally. Both my parents are writers, and though I am grateful to it for the life it continues to afford me, it is a complex genetic inheritance.”
“The narrative of ‘Lost In Time’ is surreal and dreamlike and seems like an omen or a foreshadowing of something perhaps exciting, and foreboding,” says Ryder Cooley, the singer, songwriter, accordion player and bandleader for New York-based, cabaret-inspired indie rock band THE DUST BOWL FAERIES about their new single. A mystical and nautical tale that involves a clockmaker, a girl, a taxidermy ram named “Hazel,” and an entourage of unusual characters, the motley crew are enchanted by the beckoning song of the sirens. While sounding esoteric and doomed, like all faerie tales there is a happy ending… of sorts. “The girl and her cohorts sink to the bottom of the ocean where they live happily ever after, under the sea. It’s a bittersweet end, like drowning in a pool of warm sweet teardrops,” she laughs.
