UPPLOPPET Release “Golden Eyes” Video

The band comments: “The song is somehow flirting with all subgenres of rock music with everything from poprock to fast punkrock with a nice chorus to sing along with even if you don’t really know the lyrics!

The song is about buttering up to people to try to earn something you don’t deserve. But in the end you end up with nothing and everything is taken away from you. It’s somewhat a request to people to be real and honest about themselves.

Hope you enjoy this garage session that we rocked this banger out for you!”

This new collection of songs includes fan favorites “Strange Habits” and “Hopeless”, which marked the return of the band after a several year hiatus following their critically acclaimed sophomore LP Do You Feel O.K?.

Kenny Muney Lives Like a Rock Star in “Top” Video

Locking into instrumentals with unshakeable focus, Kenny Muney mesmerizes with his triplet flow. Reflecting on his rise from the bottom to the pinnacle of his city’s rap scene, the Memphis native shares “Top,” a new music video. Complete with subsonic 808s and wailing electric guitars, “Top” is a slow-burning slapper, filled with fast-talking flexes and effortlessly tongue-twisting wordplay. In the video, directed by 35Miles, a CELINE-wearing Kenny performs with a DJ and an electric guitar player, as he overlooks the canyon with a mic and a rack in his hands. “Top” is the latest music video from Blue Muney, Kenny’s new mixtape, following the irreverent video for intro track “Muney Prayer.”

Ultra Q share new single ‘Rocket’ taken from debut album ‘My Guardian Angel’ out 9th June via Royal Mountain Records | Announced to support Wavves / Cloud Nothings in the US

On the track, frontman Jakob Armstrong says, “This was a tricky one. Originally there were two demos for the song. The first titled Rocket, and the second titled Bon Iver is a Greasy Weeb (I was doing some fun vocoder stuff). It’s probably good we ended up going with the first. This track feels like a melting point for the album. It finds its place in between the electronic blaze of ‘I Watched Them Go’ and the emo sheen of ‘VR Sex’. It bridges the gap. Lyrically I found the contrast between city nightlife and insomnia to be familiar. It feels comforting and warm even though those two things separately describe quite the opposite.”
