SMOKE SEASON: the Wolves are coming lunedì, 6 novembre 2017 21:45 by madseason
Smoke Season - Wolves

Featuring creepy beats from powerhouse producer/mixer Christopher Mullings (The Neighborhood, LP) and production from DJ/producer Fabian Ordorica (Goldroom), Wolves continues the electro-soul duo's newfound emphasis on writing indie-dance bangers with a rocksteady flair. Smoke Season, a duo whose wild, passion-filled energy has been a signature since day one, explain that the song came about in the throws of a fiery argument.

Wolves is a part of the slew of new material Smoke Season has written over the past year for their debut full-length album, due out in 2018. The new songs finds Smoke Season placing a new emphasis on Jason Rosen's (lead guitarist) Jamaican background through the incorporation of reggae undertones into their signature electro-soul indie pop sound.

I,Us & We - Tryst

I, Us & We is an Indie-rock/electronic trio consisting of brothers Jordan, Evan and Aaron Doverspike. Born and raised in Temecula, California, the Doverspike brothers are ready to take over the indie rock scene.

Idol, the band's first single of 2017, made an instant impact upon its release in May. Within a few short months, the track garnered 30k streams on Soundcloud, 20k on YouTube, and another 76k streams on Spotify. I, Us, & We quickly embedded themselves into the music scene of Los Angeles through a series of high profile performances at bedrock venues like The Troubadour, The Echo, and The Satellite, as well as a performance at Echo Park Rising, Los Angeles' premiere street festival. The success of the release and its remix counterparts (from artist Vogel and KANGA), as well as buzz about their live show, captured the attention of Little Assembly, a label imprint of UK-based West One Music, who quickly signed the band.

Tryst marks the Little Assembly debut release for I, Us, & We, an indie-rock anthem mixed by Martin Crane and mastered by Spencer Zahn (Kimbra, Spencer Ludwig). Tryst is an escape route from reality into a daydream filled with sonic synths and stimulating vocals. I, Us & We create an atmosphere with sensual and unique melodies, allowing its listeners to unwind and vanish into a world of their own.

Download or stream Tryst on your favorite digital music platforms and get ready for their first EP, Ceremonies, to be released next November 14.
