Alternative, Indie, Pop | Seven Purple Tigers Reflect on Loneliness, Relationships, and Healthy Breakups “Ignorance is Blitz”

Posted by on September 12, 2021

“Ignorance is Blitz” is a total Indie rock jam that is well worth checking out! The band’s founders Austin Horn (singer/rhythm guitar) and Phil Dyszy (lead guitar/backing vocals) are an unlikely pair. From the US and Germany respectively, the trans-Atlantic duo bonded over their love of music in the vibrant basement bars and clubs of the Old Town of Kraków, Poland. It was there that the pair began crafting what would become Seven Purple Tiger’s signature sound that came to fruition after 5 years of writing together and performing live alongside bandmates Sebastian Heieck (bass) and Felix Schwer (drums). Along with the stellar new single comes a rad visual that you can watch now above. Keep this band on your radar, they’re bound for greatness!

Alternative, Indie | The Ampersands Genre-bend via New Single, “The Pigeon”

Posted by on August 5, 2021

Rarely does a name as abstract as ‘The Ampersands’ so accurately describe an act but upon exposure to duo Aaron McQuade & Jim Pace’s work, it just clicks. Every revelation of the band unearths five more layers beneath – whether a track that cycles between genres like verses or the incredible stage antics of the live shows, with The Ampersands audiences are always left with niggling hook: “and one more thing…” This guiding philosophy is on full display on the single ‘The Pigeon’. In the vein of the titular animal, the song takes flight through the worlds of Indie Pop/Rock, Alt. Contemporary Disco, sections layered to the nines, and moments of reflection carried by simple piano alongside vocals duelling with a gentle bass. An erratic structure follows in the dreams of the song’s hero caught restless between a desire and inability to move on. Between the song’s introspective and melancholic lyrics, optimistic and fun melody, and ever shifting composition, The Pigeon is a song that will keep listeners coming back eager to discover that last little thing they may have missed. This is the first piece of music I’ve heard by the upcoming duo but I am thoroughly impressed and intrigued to hear more by them (hopefully) soon enough. Check their new single out above now!


Alternative, Indie | Joe Fox & The Frantics Keep it “Cool”

Posted by on August 3, 2021

Describing the meaning behind “Cool”, Joe Fox & The Frantics explain: “Cool is a summer anthem. All about strutting your stuff and doing your thing as we all re enter the world this summer.” I couldn’t agree more: this one has a total Summertime vibe to it and I can’t get enough of it. I’m already on my third listen! The emerging Los Angeles based indie rock band is only on the come up but the trio is starting to turn some heads across L.A. and nationally thanks to how easily they ombine their alternate loves for indie, rock and alternative music and create a sound that travels beyond the norms of the typical indie band you would hear in today’s world. Check out “Cool” above now!

Following a series of popular releases in 2020, amassing 15 million streams and over 5.5million hits on YouTube, South-African singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Loops is back with a summery new single and music video for his track “Postcards”, out on Decca Records. “Postcards” showcases Jeremy’s distinctive vocals, flowing melodies, and sunshine-soaked hooks. This is a summer soaked track about relationships, so its feel-good but also real at the same time. Watch the visual above now and read a quote from Jeremy on the release below!

“Postcards is a song about the ups and downs of relationships, people feel like they are alone when they suffer difficulties in relationships, it’s more common than people admit. This isn’t a sad song, it’s a song about acceptance and accepting that difficulties are often part of the journey to finding that solid connection. It’s a very upside-down world we’re living in right now. It’s hard to see people agreeing on anything, but this is one thing I feel like everyone can agree on. Sometimes we just can’t live with or without each other.”

Alternative, Indie, Pop | “Hey Hey It’s Your Birthday!!” by DeeCeeDee is a B-day Banger

Posted by on June 21, 2021

Very rarely do I find myself covering Birthday themed music (LOL) but this song is actually pretty sick. NHS nurse Mike Fairbairn, aka DeeCeeDee, releases birthday anthem for the lost parties of lockdown, to raise funds for nurses in financial hardship and to help disabled co-writer and fellow nurse, scammed of £200k. So not only is the song sounding solid but it’s also for a great cause that is well worth it. Tune in to “Hey Hey It’s Your Birthday!!” above now.

Fusing indie instrumentation with a compelling vocal blend of hip-hop and R&B, Casper Sun’s single is a nuanced amalgamation of classic styles. Showcasing an impressive mastery of genre-blending techniques, “Wavy Luv” is Casper Sun at his outright best. Singing from the heart, the ethereal creative chronicles a tale of self-desire and passion with an emphasis on treating oneself with unconditional kindness. Speaking on his album’s lead single, Casper Sun says the following: “I know how it feels to get something you’ve wanted for so long, and realize in the end that it’s not what you need. I wrote a story about Casper coming to terms that what he needs is different than what he wants, and the rest of the album explores what those needs are, and how they battle with his passion and desires.”
