Alternative | Bonnie Lola Drops Tasty New Single

Posted by on November 25, 2020

Bonnie Lola is an alternative rock band from Indianapolis that began as the solo project of guitarist Grady Neff with Zack Philipps on drums and Robbie Jacobs on bass, who decided to spin off his own project, blending elements of rock, indie and psychedelia. Musically, Bonnie Lola sits at the cross section of spacey melodies and gritty rock and roll. The band’s new single “Vanilla Ice Cream” is as tasty as it sounds. Get familiar with these guys, they’ve got a great sound going for them! Speaking about the new single, Grady said, “The song is about a fleeting addiction that hooks you on the first taste. You might forget over time or move on, but once you’ve had it, it will remain a memory forever.”

Posted by on October 23, 2020

BEXLO is a new, genre-bending, Glasgow based electronic project with a focus on creating songs that mix epic emotional breakdowns with hard-hitting drops to ‘make people cry’ (in a good way). Behind this moniker lies 20-year-old producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ben Logie. Taking influence from the likes of Droeloe, Vincent and Juuku, BEXLO’s style is a bold new reimagining of the trap genre. Check out a quote from BEXLO on the debut release below and stream “Tell Me” above now!

“The song was written on one of those days in the studio where everything just kinda clicks and seems to work together. It was a few months ago when the entire world was going into lockdown and the darker moods in ‘Tell Me’ are a product of the surrounding uncertainty at that time.” – BEXLO

Posted by on July 13, 2020

This recently released dark pop single “FAKIN'” by WEIRDO is a catchy, ironic, simple yet rather cut-deep track that eludes prowess and sincerity throughout. The moody jam is the highlight track of my week without a doubt. With early support on prior releases from the lieks of BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio, a slot in Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Pop playlist, and press sites such as Vice, Complex, EARMILK and others, WEIRDO is off to a strong start. Check out a quote on the single below and stream the new tune above now! “Fakin’ is a song I wrote about the world we live in, the people that surround us and the complexities of the modern age.

Albums | Sam Doll Reflects on her inner turmoils with “Bad Like Me”

Posted by on May 15, 2020

Sam Doll is a Toronto based artist with a knack for songwriting and melodies. This time around in her latest offering “Bad Like Me” Sam creates her own audio world and divulges her inner turmoils. We are astounded by her range and dynamics which really give the whole record a lot of uniqueness. More on the song via Sam Doll: “I’m a writer, and I realized that writing is what I’m best at and meant to do, but often times you write alone. And I like having a lot of people around all the time. So with music, I get to write something, and then bring it to my producer, go to the studio, do a show, etc – it’s much more social.”
