Gina Birch (The Raincoats) unveils debut solo album “I Play My Bass Loud”
I Play My Bass Loud has already drawn significant praise, including a lengthy feature in the New York Times, which states that “Birch sings, writes and plays bass like someone who cannot help but be herself, and her distinct, sometimes contradictory personality oozes out of every track.” The adulation hardly stopped there – MOJO called the album “a shining example of the music geek’s revenge” in their review, and BrooklynVegan hailed it as “a real statement of purpose.”
“From a very young age, I was constantly bullied and attacked by kids who weren’t like me. They would push me around and even beat me when I was around. Bullying was just something that I grew up with, just like many other kids at young ages.That’s where the inspiration for ‘Bully’ came from, and this song is a ‘fuck you’ to all the people who think it’s okay to treat others poorly,” says the band’s vocalist Aidan Amini.
ELEGANT WEAPONS UNLEASH NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “BLIND LEADING THE BLIND,”FROM FORTHCOMING HORNS FOR A HALO ALBUM
“‘Fade Away’ is a song that hits home for a lot of people, especially members of this band. In today’s world everyone would rather suffer in silence than be open with struggling with mental health. This song captures that, it’s okay to suffer, it’s okay to not be okay, and most importantly it’s okay to be open with what’s going on mentally. There’s always someone willing to listen and unloading your thoughts and struggles is the easiest way to overcome those challenges. Don’t be afraid, you’re not alone and we all struggle. That’s our message to the world with this song.” – Billy Arviso

ESQ – New Video “Everybody Got Something”
Sager says about, “Everybody Got Something”, “Everyone’s always got something to say, but it would really be nicer if we didn’t hear from anyone.

From politicians, investment advisors and even religious leaders, they’re out for themselves and pretending to advocate for everyday people trying to get by in their everyday struggles and in life.”
