Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors New Single & Video “Find Your People” out Today!
“Life is hard. It’s a helluva lot harder when you go it alone. “Find Your People” is a folk anthem about how we need each other. Part of the river of this record is about how to navigate the chaos of economic uncertainty, family drama, political division, and the general untethering that so many of us feel. It’s about finding who you trust, who know you, who are there for you in times of trouble, who can call your bluff and tell you the truth, who will stand with you no matter what. I have been lucky enough to have a lot of those people in my life and I know I couldn’t live without them.” – Drew Holcomb on “Find Your People”
The Intemperate Sons Release New Single “Way Back When” via FRAME|WORK
Indie rock band The Intemperate Sons released their new single “Way Back When” to all major platforms! The single is from their highly anticipated new album Game of Keep Away that will be released via FRAME|WORK in 2023. The band is in the early stages of planning a fall run of shows on the west coast.
Psychedelic metal trio HOUNSKULL have unveiled the magical new single “Clockwork Wizard”. Inspired by the 1971 film The Abominable Dr Phibes, “Clockwork Wizard” offers a glimpse of what awaits in their upcoming album The Faces of Evil later in 2023.
The band comments:
“‘Clockwork wizard’ felt like the perfect first song to show off the new album, it’s equal parts heavy and trippy. Writing the song started with the main riff and divulged down paths unexplored by the band up til that point. The lyrics are about a wizard concocting potions to send the listener through time, leaving their body to explore their future. The title of the song came from one of kyle’s favorite movies, The Abominable Dr Phibes where he has a band of automatons called The Clockwork Wizards.”

Bleach Lab Releases Brand New Single “Indigo” Via Nettwerk
The track is inspired by being in a harmful relationship with somebody who repeatedly tries to convince you they’re sorry. Josh explains, “I started writing this with the chorus first and without a track for it in mind at the time. I liked the idea of an 80s movie where there’s a man trying to apologize and get his girl back by playing music out of a boombox while she sits on the window ledge. I thought it’s funny that it’s romanticized in film but it would never happen in real life. So I tried to play on that a bit and relate it to repetition and how it would look like if it happened today.”
Skope: Mediocre single || *IN SYNC pod annce + trailer
London/Taipai-raised, NYC-based indie Electro-RnB Project Cool Girl Island Drops New Video via Ones to Watch
Produced by Father Pocket (Larry Contreras), the new track has been brewing since 2020. Coco states, ” I wrote the song during the end of covid. Despite finally having “permission” to leave my house, I found myself wanting to stay in and craving my own company. The music I wrote became my melodic journal diary. Sometimes I would surprise myself when I listen back to the lyrics I wrote because I’m quite a private person. To be completely honest, I don’t remember the writing process of this song and there’s no deeper meaning to the lyrics, but depending on the mood I am in, I relate to my song very differently. Most days it’s a feel good, self-love kind of song, other days it makes me strangely sad… There are also days when it’s just a white noise song I play in the background. I have a tendency to block out the world and get stuck in an endless daydream.” She continues, “I do get a lot of complaints from friends regarding how my phone is always on “do not disturb”Listen to “do not disturb (airplane mode)”
