Zayde Wølf - Holy Water

Nashville's Alt. Rock chart topper Zayde Wølf, the musical persona of Grammy nominated producer and songwriter Dustin Burnett, has released the new single Holy Water, one his most powerful songs to date, a bold statement being that his music has yielded over 400 Million streams and has served as the motivational soundtrack for millions of fans, who have found the strength and inspiration to overcome life's toughest challenges in Wølf's music.

Holy Water follows the formula of some of the most memorable songs ever written, being that it manifested quickly, unexpectedly and was a last-minute addition to the album. It was one of those accidental songs that emerged once Burnett released his creative boundaries as he felt the album was finished. "I didn't try to write Holy Water on purpose, it was already in there, a raw and personal moment, just waiting for me to release it," says Burnett.  "Sometimes when you remove all of your boundaries on your creativity, something new, surprising, and even fantastic emerges. I think Holy Water was that for me."

Holy Water, which is featured on Spotify's All New Rock and New Noise playlists, follows up the anti-hero inspired song Madness, that  Indie Obsessive said was filled with "thunderous percussion, backing vocal shouts, and crescendos that contribute to the pandemic-like motivational effect that Madness builds in listeners," and was immediately swooped up for us all throughout the NCAA March Madness tournament by CBS and Turner  Sports.
Back At It, Zayde Wølf's  first taste of the new music this year, was a powerful entry that Apiate called "an energetic pop/rock track that carries the musician's signature electronic-infused style. Zayde's lyrics are reminiscent and uplifting and he delivers the song with infectious exuberance," setting the tone for what 2021 had in store for Zayde Wølf fans, his third full length album Neon Blood Type.
This album follows the 2018 release of Modern Alchemy, Zayde Wølf's sophomore full-length album, which charted in over 25 countries on the iTunes charts and debuted in the top ten on the iTunes Alternative chart in the U.S. within hours of its release.

Neon Blood Type is scheduled to be released next May 7. Meanwhile, stream/buy Holy Water on your favorite digital music service and watch the official video clicking on the image.

The Classic Crime - How To Be Human

Five years have passed since The Classic Crime released their highly acclaimed album Phoenix, and now the Seattle rock group is back with their fifth studio album, How To Be Human, released last April 28 via BC Music. The album was completely funded via Kickstarter, with over 2,500 backers, tripling the original goal.

How To Be Human contains The Classic Crime's most mature body of work yet, featuring 12 tracks of pure indie rock in the stylings of Death Cab For Cutie meets Motion City Soundtrack. Working with longtime producer and mixer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Alter Bridge, Slash, Falling In Reverse), the band was able to challenge themselves, exploring a "happy to be here" songwriting style, while feeling at home with Baskette's ability to try new recording techniques and cement the The Classic Crime's signature tight drum work and guitar layering.

"My goals for every album is to push the boundaries a bit," explains lead singer-songwriter and co-producer Matt MacDonald, "When we started playing together back in 2003, our influences (wide as they were) were pretty apparent. With each record we’ve tried to go some place different, to incorporate different styles while maintaining core structure and textures."
