Today is a perfect day to share the latest single from PHNTMS, called “Coastline.” On this electric-charged track, PHNTMS play off of their pop rock influences and bring something incredibly exciting into the mix. The band shared about the song:
’Coastline’ is a song about letting go of your current situation and moving on to what is best for you and your life. Taking a chance to be with the one you love forever. It was inspired by the story of how I left the East Coast to move to Los Angeles to be with my girlfriend, who ended up becoming my wife. It was recorded by producer Courtney Ballard (All Time Low, 5 Seconds to Summer, Grayscale). ‘Coastline’ is a part of a collection of songs to make an EP about moving to the West Coast. ‘Coastline’ was written by Adam Jessamine and April Rose Gabrielli, who sings on the track.

Today is a great day to share the new single from LARAAJI & KRAMER called “Submersion.” On this ambient single, this artist channels warm music arrangements paired with sweeping instrumentation in a crowd-pleasing song. When speaking on the new track, the artist shared:
Memory, is an art. Sound, and its visual point of origin, can open our minds to ourselves, and to others. The potential truthful of every sound is strengthened when attached to a formless visual image. ‘Submersion’ is an act of submission, to Memory. It is the most sublime form of surrender, and it holds within itself the power to set us Free.

Nicholas Hamilton – “Alone” (Song Premiere)
Today is a great day to share the latest single from actor turned pop singer/songwriter, Nicholas Hamilton, called “Alone.” The song comes from his forthcoming EP, FATE, that will be out this summer. Hamilton shared, “Growing up, and even as I moved into my 20’s, I loved the independence of being on my own. No one to report to or rely on, just me, myself and I. The moment I moved to NYC at the end of 2021, after almost a year of floating around the world, sleeping on couches and shooting movies with barely a cent in my bank account, I felt different. I wanted to experience life with someone. I found myself calling my parents more often, making plans to hang out with friends, just to escape the suddenly dreaded feeling of being alone. ‘Alone’ was born out of this sensation, which was as foreign to me as the city I’d just moved to. ‘Alone’ is not what it once was. Remember when it was nice?'” I was also able to catch up with Nicholas for a brief interview below.Read More “Nicholas Hamilton – “Alone” (Song Premiere)”

Katie Jean (vocals) shared:
As a band, we are huge fans of Thrice and their instrumental version of ‘Night Diving.’ We thought it would be an incredible opportunity to take a song we loved so dearly and reimagine it with not only vocals, but also through lots of added ear candy sprinkled about. Not only lyrically but also musically, it was very important to us that we pay homage to Thrice’s Alchemy Index and simply add our magical touch to the song!
Between The Echoes are onto something truly magical here.Read More “Between The Echoes – “Night Diving (Reimagined)” (Song Premiere)”
Sunsetter – “The Whole World That Turns Around Itself” (Song Premiere)
Today I’m thrilled to bring everyone the latest single from shoegaze artist Sunsetter, called “The Whole World That Turns Around Itself.” Sunsetter is the solo music project of Andrew McLeod, and he shared:
This track is one of the first things I created when my partner and I moved into our new house in rural Norfolk county. I found myself realizing there was an album coming together; I had about 20+ pieces of music to work from and I was trying to pair down but also create more tracks that really captured the mood of how I was feeling at the time. After finishing this track, I remember thinking to myself that I had found a more central mood for this album as a whole and ended up scrapping a bunch of the songs I had previously recorded and almost starting from scratch.
If you’re enjoying the direction of the new single, the full-length record called The Best I Can Be, will be released everywhere music is sold today. I was also able to catch up with Andrew for a brief interview below.Read More “Sunsetter – “The Whole World That Turns Around Itself” (Song Premiere)”

Recorded and mixed by Chris Ploss and mastered by Paul Leavitt, the emotional and heartfelt song speaks to the struggles of the human experience. The music is both raw and authentic, with lyrics that are both thought-provoking and deeply moving. The EP is dynamic and reminiscent of early 2000’s emo, blended with bits of pop-punk and indie/post-hardcore.Read More “Quit Yourself – “Strung Out and Grinding Your Teeth” (Song Premiere)”
The Scary Jokes – “Uzumaki” (Song Premiere)
Today I’m thrilled to bring everyone the latest single from synth-pop artist The Scary Jokes called “Uzumaki.” The song is about vivid dreams of past failed relationships, wanting everything to be okay, as well as the painful realization of reality when you wake up from dreaming. With a sound truly to their own, The Scary Jokes make a solid impression on the “bedroom pop” genre. The Scary Jokes shared:
”Uzumaki” was inspired by having recurring dreams about people you’ve had a falling out with. You just want things to be okay like they are in the dream but you wake up and you’re still not friends with that person. When I have dreams like that, all the context for why we’re not friends anymore is inaccessible in that moment. But as soon as you wake up and have some clarity, everything comes rushing to the forefront of your brain. I often get frustrated by the senselessness of making an enemy. I don’t want to have enemies; I want to be friends with everyone. “Uzumaki” is about those feelings being at odds with each other.
The song comes from their forthcoming LP, Retinal Bloom, out everywhere music is sold on May 26th.Read More “The Scary Jokes – “Uzumaki” (Song Premiere)”
Sid Seth – “Hopeless War” (Song Premiere)
Today is a great day to share the latest single and lyric video from singer-songwriter Sid Seth called “Hopeless War.” With a sound that fits somewhere between the classic soul/pop of Stevie Wonder and the modern flair of Harry Styles, Sid Seth is really coming into his own on songs like this. I was also able to catch up with this artist for a brief interview below.Read More “Sid Seth – “Hopeless War” (Song Premiere)”
EG Vines – “The Swim” (Song Premiere)
Today is a great day to share the new single from rock band EG Vines called “The Swim.” With a sound that sways somewhere between the blissful pop rock of the Gin Blossoms, to the lofty arena pop of Arctic Monkeys, EG Vines may just be one of the best kept secrets in rock. The bands shared:
’The Swim’ is a song about making yourself into the person you want to be, and finding a better path forward. Getting over that feeling of ‘not this shit again’ when you continually fuck things up and just can’t seem to get out of your own way. This song is that light bulb moment when you find a better way. As with most songs on our new album, Dance Moves, it started with the band in a room and stream-of-consciousness lyrics. John Rodrigue started this one out with an uptempo drumbeat and Ben Cunningham and I pushed our guitars to dirty-as-hell while I rattled off the melody. Throw in a few hand claps and some background ‘ahhs’ and you’ve got a 3-minute, feel-good rock & roll song.
If you’ve been looking for that next great band that checks all the boxes, look no further than EG Vines.Read More “EG Vines – “The Swim” (Song Premiere)”
Alexander Wren – “Full Time Blues” (Song Premiere)
Today is a great day to share the new single and lyric video from Alexander Wren called “Full Time Blues.” For those unfamiliar with this talented artist, he fits somewhere in the same vein as Mt. Joy and Father John Misty, with a sound that truly must be heard. The song comes from Wren’s forthcoming LP To Whom It May Concern, that will be out everywhere music is sold on May 19th. Alexander Wren shared, “In an industry filled with sad indie artists, I think that I want to continue leaning into this more Fauvist corner of music. This traditional side with excitement and energy. This narrative side of music that isn’t only about angst and failed religion. This side of music that just feels classic–that transcends daily struggles and makes you want to go out on the weekend.” Get ready to discover music’s next big indie artist.Read More “Alexander Wren – “Full Time Blues” (Song Premiere)”
