New Age Affair – “Paradise White” (Album Stream)

New Age Affair

Today I’m thrilled to share the early album stream from melodic punk rock quartet, New Age Affair, for their new LP called Paradise White. The band is signed to the legendary indie punk label Manic Kat Records, and they are making their name better known with a sound that drifts somewhere between MxPx and Masked Intruder. If you’re enjoying the album stream, please consider purchasing the record tomorrow.

Parris Mitchell – “Your Only” (Video Premiere)

Parris Mitchell

Today is a great day to share indie-pop star, Parris Mitchell, and his new lyric video for “Your Only.” This New York-based singer-songwriter channels the best parts of the pop genre in this crowd-pleasing new single. On the track, Mitchell shared:

I wanted this song to feel like the tension before a kiss. Being in between who you were before and after it. Not love gained or lost but the middle child of the two. I had the most fun writing this one, the songs that pour out immediately usually are. There’s a lot of elements to this song that excite me, especially the ripping saxophones paired with the 80’s-esque drums. I love this song deeply and I hope you can hear that through its soaring vocals and production.

If you’re ready to take the next step in joining Parris Mitchell in his musical evolution, there’s no better time than now. I was also able to catch up with the artist for a brief interview.
