Albums | Washington DC based artist Kris Kollins Releases “SIDE FX”

Posted by on August 25, 2022

Washington DC has a low key music scene that isn’t as booming as LA or the NYC market but that doesn’t mean there is no good music coming out of their city. Kris Kollins is making some really cool music that deserves your attention, especially his latest drop “SIDE FX.” The recently released alt-pop single is a romantically charged song that is a great introduction to his music if you are not yet familar. Tune in above now and read a quote from him on the release after the jump!

“It’s the feeling of being so infatuated with someone it feels like an addiction. You’re not yourself, but you feel lifted. Love and infatuation is pretty much a drug trip, and this song is about that….it’s a feeling that scares me, but I desire.” – Kris Kollins

Albums | Collo and Dee Wolf Connect on “Burnt”

Posted by on August 17, 2022

Melbourne, Australian based artist Collo’s latest offering “Burnt” is a hard hitting alt-rock single that features Italian vocalist Dee Wolf for a potent connection of sounds. Collo’s musical journey started early on when he was given an acoustic guitar as a Christmas present when he was only 8 years old, and it’s all history from there on out. Influenced by rock icons like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, he has big shoes to fill but the grittiness of “Burnt” is a step in the right direction. This is the first piece of music I’ve heard by the Aussie talent but I left wanting more and plan to tune in to more of his music moving forward. Listen to their single above now and read a quote from Collo on the track below now!

“This is a song about a girl who has got into a relationship with a guy who she already had a failed relationship with previously. Unfortunately this time around it also turned out badly for her. She was “Burnt” by this guy a second time – but she is determined to fight back and move forward from this difficult experience.” – Collo

Albums | Long Term Parking Release Video for “King E”

Posted by on August 8, 2022

Long Term Parking is an expansive musical project by three veteran musicians looking to broaden their horizons. The bands fluid style combines elements of hip hop, rock and alt-pop into a unique sound that also draws influences from classical and folk music. Check out the music video for “King E” by Long Term Parking above now and below this article check out a quote from the band on their new release!

“King E.’ is the oldest song on the record, but ironically ended up being the closer. It took a lot of work to make everything sound casual. The song has a very specific structure that is remotely inspired by a baroque rondo. ‘King E’. is an example of what we’re trying to do, namely look for bridges and create collages. We try to connect things that are seemingly unrelated in the most natural way. The lyrics of the song describe the way your inner world expands into your real life.”

Iran born, India based actress, model and dancer Elnaaz Norouzi steps into the world of music with her first ever single via “La La Love”.  This is the first piece of music (or visuals) I’ve seen by this artist but it was quite impressive, probably due to her modeling/acting background. A catchy song and video right here, so be sure to check out the video for her debut track “La La Love” above now and read a quote from her on the release after the jump!

La La Love’ to me is my first born. I can’t think much of what the words mean to me but when I think of ‘La La Love’ I remember how my journey of music started and how long it has been that I’ve been holding on to this song before I can show it to the world.

Canadian singer/songwriter and Platinum-certified pop artist Jocelyn Alice has co-written tracks featured in the hit TV shows One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars, the movie Dear Santa, and more.

Read a quote from Alice on the release below and stream the new track above now!

“??The Baby Girl hook finally revealed itself over a year after I started writing it. Autumn really elevated the record by bringing in some beasts on the instrumentation side.

Albums | Tonner Releases Indie Electronic Tune, “Castles”

Posted by on July 20, 2022

Singer/songwriter/producer Tonner is a Florida bred talent who we’ve covered a few times before here on the site so was not surprised when I really enjoyed his new song “Castles”. More electronically infused than most of his prior work, the steady thumping kick drum, glossy topline, and keyboard stabs layered with lush synths all come together for a futuristic jam that has a great vibe to it. Listen to “Castles” by Tonner above now and keep a tab on him for future releases and his new album!

I wrote this song to try and bring myself some healing and I hope it can do the same for others in its own small way.” – Tonner
