No Small Children - It's All For Love (For Goodness Sake)

Another new act that deserves your full attention: elementary school teachers by day and rockers by night, LA pop-rock trio No Small Children formed on the playground while doing recess duty. They released their new single, It's All For Love (For Goodness Sake) yesterday, April 13.

"This is a track about putting one foot in front of the other during these crazy times we live in, and bringing it back to the basics" said the band about the new track.

No Small Children also have a new album, What Do The Kids Say? out May 18, featuring their song I'm So Concerned which gives their point of view on the gun control issue as three veteran teachers.

No Small Children have been recognized by the Los Angeles Times for their remake of the classic Ghostbusters theme song that can be heard in the 2016 Ghostbusters movie.

In 2017, No Small Children released the single Radio produced by the legendary Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Filter, Saliva). Radio has recently been featured on The World Famous KROQ (Los Angeles), "Rock Band Rivals" video game and in the 2018 season of the Drew Barrymore's Netflix show, Santa Clarita Diet.  A previously released song, Big Steps was also featured in the 2017 season of Santa Clarita Diet as well.

The American Beauty of KNEE HIGH FOX mercoledì, 11 aprile 2018 23:40 by madseason
Knee High Fox - American Beauty

Electronic alternative rock band from Los Angeles Knee High Fox released sophomore full length studio effort Jawbreaker last March 29.

Jawbreaker has taken the band's love for electronics, beats, rhythmic rap, alternative sounds, guitars, big chorus, clever and honest lyrics, and created an experience of ups and downs.

Singer Krsy Fox has always talked about her intense passion for dark cult 90's movies like The Craft, Jawbreaker, Foxfire, Girl Interrupted and American Beauty. She wanted to capture the feeling those films gave her as a young girl within the new album.

"They always effected what has inspired me and the way I looked at visuals and excepted my crazy girl feelings, and my always being a bit of an outsider, even though I'm usually the loudest person in the room" states Krsy.

No sophomore slump for RED SUN RISING giovedì, 5 aprile 2018 22:08 by madseason
Red Sun Rising - Fascination

Alt-rockers Red Sun Rising sophomore album, Thread, was released last week, on March 30, via Concord Music/Razor & Tie. Produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI, Porno For Pyros) and mixed by Jay Ruston (Adrenaline Mob, Pop Evil, Steel Panther), the disc continues to expand on Red Sun Rising's concept of mixing different genres and influences to create a unique sound.

Red Sun Rising lead singer Mike Protich stated about Thread: "This album feels like a rebirth. Although Red Sun Rising played 140 shows on our last tour, it was not until we made this album that I felt we became a band. The growth and evolution of Red Sun Rising that you will hear in our sound and our songwriting builds on our Thread mentality (songs that people can love and sing with us but don't fit a mold). We aren't chasing trends and never will."

Red Sun Rising debut full-length, Polyester Zeal, was one of my favourite albums of 2016; with its two leading singles, The Otherside and Emotionless, it scored two back-to-back No. 1 hit singles on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart: this marked the first time in over a decade that a band has achieved back-to-back No. 1s on that chart.

Thread confirms Red Sun Rising as one of the best rock band around: check the video for the new single Fascination clicking on the image and stream the whole record on Spotify now!

Gasoline: new fuel for VERMILLION ROAD venerdì, 30 marzo 2018 21:03 by madseason
Vermillion Road - Gasoline

Remember my post from a couple of months ago about Denver-based alternative pop-rock band Vermillion Road?

They were releasing their highly-addictive single Only One, a song that is still in heavy rotation here at weChameleon.com.

Today is the time of Gasoline, Vermillion Road's self-produced brand new single, "a four-on-the-floor driving pop song about taking big chances and going the distance, no matter how far, to be with the one you love," according to the band's guitar player Hunter Heurich.

Gasoline is another ultra-catchy modern-pop number that you simply can't miss if you like perfectly crafted pop songs with big choruses and a rock delivery.

Listen to Gasoline on digital music platforms worldwide and keep watch for their forthcoming EP, due out later this year.

Sunflower Bean - Twentytwo

Sunflower Bean is a young indie pop trio out of Brooklyn, formed in August 2013 by singer/guitarist Nick Kivlen, singer/bassist Julia Cumming and drummer Jacob Faber.

Their new, second album, Twentytwo In Blue was released last Friday, March 23, and comes almost two years and two months after the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony.

Twentytwo In Blue - all members of the band are 22 years old at the moment of the release - shows Sunflower Bean stay true to their guitar band core and classic rock-inspired roots (the influence of Fleetwood Mac is undeniable), while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes.

The Ramona Flowers - Dramatist

If you're a weChameleon's follower, you should know The Ramona Flowers by now. This talented UK indie-electronic band is releasing a new single and lyric video for their song Dramatist today, March 23, via Distiller Records.

Dramatist is an awesome synthpop track with a strong 80's influence: a soundtrack for your late afternoons moments, when the sun is setting and you need some relax. Watch the lyric video for Dramatist clicking on the image.

The Ramona Flowers is also announcing the pre-order of their upcoming album, Strangers, to be released next May 18. Strangers will include the new single Dramatist, as well as Same Sun, covered on these columns a couple of months ago.
