WAIVER – “Right Here” (Video Premiere)


Today is a great day to share the latest music video from emo/punk band, Waiver, called “Right Here.” The song does its best to recapture that Warped Tour spirit, and is sure to make you reminisce about the best days of the punk scene. The band shared, “’Right Here’ is a song about being alive in the present moment, being content with being exactly where you are, right here, right now. ‘Right Here’ is a song that gives light to the spiritual reality of our lives. Lyrically, ‘Right Here’ is a reflection from the journey of awakening to a new reality, a reality that gives light to a higher part of yourself and this world, a reality that gives you a lighter and more content perspective to deal with the issues in our life.” The single comes from their forthcoming EP, Eyes Wide Open, that releases on March 24th. If you’re ready to discover your next favorite band, you’ve come to the right place.

Ghost Love – “Mourners Disco” (Song Premiere)

Ghost Love

Today I’m thrilled to share with everyone the latest single from synth-pop band, Ghost Love, called “Mourners Disco.” This 80’s-esque track that strays somewhere between Tears For Fears and CHVRCHES, is sure to be the perfect addition to that playlist you’ve been crafting. The track comes from the upcoming album of the same name, and will haunt you in the most beautiful way. Vocalist David Rancourt shared:

The song deals with the pain of loss and grief after my mother passed away but also the desire to transcend the pain and to keep dancing and celebrating her life through it. She supported me when I came out as queer and showed me to navigate difficult times in my life so really the song is a tribute to her strength and guidance. It also speaks to the desire to sometimes hold on to the pain or grief as it is the only feeling that sometimes reminds us of the person that we have lost.

If you’re ready to embrace the darkness, Ghost Love are here for you.
