Royal Teeth - Show You What I Can Do

Show You What I Can Do is the tilte of the brand new single and video from American indie pop rockers Royal Teeth.

"The song is about showing the world what you’re made of. We tend to hide pieces of ourselves because we are afraid of negativity, and I’ve noticed from my own experiences that it only holds me back from truly being myself and achieving my goals in life. This song is saying that it’s time to be brave and be yourself" said Gary Larsen, Royal Teeth singer and guitarist, on the new song, adding "My Dad is a race car driver, and I used to go a lot as a kid. When we started thinking of ideas for the music video, I became obsessed with using the race track as the location, and from there, we brought the idea to life with the help of Solar Cabin, Tunde Olaniran, and the Whitlow family. My dad is even in the video as Nora's coach, and Nora is driving his car "Underdog". A fitting name for the song and for this band."

Horror Films by Californian talent TALKER Monday, 25 February 2019 21:57 by madseason
talker - Horror Films

Horror Films is the title of talker's new EP, released last Friday, February 22 and featuring the single Intimidated.

Dark, moody, intriguing and endearing, Horror Films is captivating and sincerely relevant. Inspired by alternative rock, grunge music, and indie singer-songwriters, talker (stage name of Celeste Tauchar) maintains a guitar-based sound while infusing organic resonances and bringing in modern production elements. Horror Films is talker's diary, in which every single composition delves into her emotions.

talker's first EP, Horror Films aims to take her in a new life direction by overcoming fears. "I try to be super authentic and honest, and I think sometimes that, combined with the music industry's cut-throat nature, makes me feel like the girl walking down the dark and creepy hallway in a horror film -- she's definitely not supposed to go in there! Except with this EP, going in there just brings out my raw emotions and hopefully something for people to connect to," talker explains.

All five compositions that comprise Horror Films were written and co-produced by talker with the help from Dan Sadin (guitarist, FRENSHIP) and Phil Simmonds (Jessie J, Eryn Allen Kane). Mastered by Dave Harris, and mixed by Mike Pepe and Jesse Ernster, Horror Films is a well-collaborated project that speaks to the emotive power of music. The team worked to express the true passion behind the EP, and they were so successful at doing so that talker became emotional while tracking vocals.

SKYE WALLACE new single: Coal In Your Window Tuesday, 19 February 2019 21:57 by madseason
Skye Wallace - Coal In Your Window

Toronto-based rocker Skye Wallace has just released Coal In Your Window, the first single from her forthcoming new, self-titled album coming June 7.

Skye wrote Coal In Your Window in a building in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland that used to be an old cottage hospital. It was inspired by a story I heard about one of the young folks that used to work in the hospital and the boy that would throw coal at her window at night to beckon her down to their meeting place in the boiler room.

Coal In Your Window may be about a specific story, but it's a truly universal concept of jittery, passionate love and doing whatever it takes to access that fire that another person ignites in you. Skye wanted to evoke an excited, dangerous, lustful energy that gets the heart pumping.

Skye's previous album Something Wicked, was produced by musician/songwriter Jim Bryson. It was named one of Vancouver Weekly's Best Albums of 2016, CBC's Top 8 Albums You Need To Hear This Month, and was dubbed by CBC's Stephen Quinn, a "kick ass record".

CHARMING LIARS complete Spoon video trilogy Friday, 8 February 2019 21:24 by madseason
Charming Liars - Time To Start

Los Angeles alternative band Charming Liars are ramping up for the release of their new Thought, Flesh And Bone album on March 1, with new single and video Time To Start.  

Frontman Kiliyan Maguire says: "While Time to Start ushers in our new LP Thought, Flesh And Bone, it also serves as the final installment to our video trilogy Spoon which was filmed on location in New Orleans. At its root Time To Start grows from the same strange water that feeds any new beginning. It's a highway ghost story about the phantoms that follow when you refuse to bury your past or your past self".

The Spoon trilogy includes previously released videos Like A Drug and Insomnia. The short film that makes up all 3 videos, directed by critically acclaimed Phillip Lopez, has been submitted for Short form consideration at several high profile film festivals, including Sundance 2019.

Messer - Simple Man

Messer are continuing their momentum from their breakout year by releasing Simple Man, the 3rd single and video from their self-titled debut album, which bowed at #3 on the Soundscan New Artist chart and was named "New and Noteworthy" at iTunes.
The Dallas, Texas based band had a banner year in 2018 with first single Make This Life reaching #25 on the Active Rock radio charts, and second single Save Myself also made it into the Top 30 -the only truly independent act to do so.

Singer Dereak Messer says: "Simple Man is a song written from the perspective of someone who is removing themselves from the drama or superficial aspects and expectations of social media in our society. It's someone who is resolved in the strength it takes to be alone and move themselves forward. It's a narrative on how this person wants to find their own power and focus on clarity of self. "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger" is the mantra and highlights the strength it takes to step away from the shallow aspects of the world into something more meaningful for themselves".

THE BLACK FEVER release new single Marketing Sunday, 27 January 2019 16:05 by madseason
The Black Fever - Marketing

The Black Fever is a post-punk indie rock band based in Toronto, comprised of Shoe (vocals, guitar), Pat Bramm (bass, back-up vocals), and Dan Purpura (drums).

The band's music mixes guitar-based post-punk influences with lead bass lines and propulsive drums, while reflecting the band's focus on melody and concise songwriting.

The band latest single, Marketing, was release last Friday, January 25. The single is the first track taken from a five-song EP that will be released in the Spring of 2019. Marketing was recorded and produced by Ian Gomes (Odonis Odonis, Fake Palms, Greys) at Union Sound Company and mastered by Noah Mintz.

"Sometimes the only art or images we see while going about our daily lives are those trying to sell us something" the band says about Marketing. "Walking around Toronto, you feel the oversaturation of advertisement that everyone is inundated with on a daily basis. There's nothing wrong with selling things, but it can be oppressive. We need to find a better balance between ads and public art – for art's sake."
