TOMBSTONES IN THEIR EYES Set Sail Towards A Sea Of Sorrow, New Record Out May 16

Today, fuzzed-out psychedelic shoegazers TOMBSTONES IN THEIR EYES (TITE) have announced the release of their latest album Sea Of Sorrow on May 16 via Kitten Robot Records with lead single “No One To Blame.” Blending softer, acoustic textures with their signature textural style, the track dives deeper into their multilayered approach to music. “The track is about the duality of my nature,” says vocalist/guitarist John Treanor about “No One To Blame. “I’m drawn to the darkness and to the light. That’s my struggle and something I write about frequently. There is always hope in the songs, however, and getting it out of me and into the world is incredibly cathartic.” “No One To Blame” is out now on DSPs.

Listen to 7ebra’s newest single, “Done with the Day”, off their upcoming debut album, Bird Hour – Out May 5th on PNKSLM

In a world of endless, bottomless content, to find something that stands out from the crowd is a rare thing. But it’s something that 7ebra manage without breaking a sweat. Based in Malmö, twin sisters Inez and Ella Johansson deal in sparkling indie-rock that’s pretty without being soft, sweet without losing its edge and catchy without being cheap. With Inez on guitar and vocals and Ella on keys, organ and Mellotron, their minimal set-up makes a virtue of simplicity – with a sliver of guitar fuzz, and organ lines snaking around stark, striking vocals, augmented by shivering harmonies, they don’t need a lot to make music that’s colourful, kaleidoscopic, and effortlessly original.
