Artist To Watch: The Wrecks

The Wrecks are good.  Like, really good!  So good in fact, that they wrote and recorded their debut EP in just a few days.  The best decisions are usually made on a whim and almost always have a good story.

After hearing that a friend had access to a legit recording studio for a few days, the guys wrote the best songs they could in a short amount of time.  The Wrecks went in to track with zero budget, little studio knowledge, and a ton of borrowed time.  They weren’t allowed to be in the studio let alone track anything there!   When they heard the studio owner’s ex-wife was stopping by, the guys got outta dodge as fast as they could with what would become their debut EP on a hard drive in a backpack.

The Wrecks debut single “Favorite Liar” caught the traction on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation station and quickly landed the guys plenty of fans include Baltimore natives, All Time Low.  “We’re so stoked that All Time Low asked us to come out with them this summer,” said the band “and we’re looking forward to playing stages that size for the first time. We can’t wait to get back out on the road again, as we’ve been mostly cramped inside writing new material and working on our set for the past few months. It’s refreshing to see such a good mix of genres in thelineup, as well. We’re gonna bring it 110% every night and we’re confident the crowds will, too.”

We’re predicting big, big things for these guys and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!  Watch the official video for “Favorite Liar” below.

Artist To Watch: The Catching

Based in New Jersey, home of classic rock and emo kings galore, The Catching have been making a name for themselves from an early age. Consisting of four friends ranging in age from 18 to 20, singer Holden Glazer, guitarists Jake Farbman and Evan Hemwall, and drummer Drew Stevens, The Catching are ready to take over your Summer playlist!  After releasing their debut EP “Teenage Fiction Pt. 1” almost a year ago, these guys have been causing waves ever since.

The Catching recently teamed up with legendary song-writer/producer Matt Squire (All Time Low, Selena Gomez, Panic! At The Disco) for their next release due out later this year.  While we anxiously wait for the new EP, the guys shared a brand new video for their latest single “Do It All Again” off the upcoming project!  The new track centers around the ups and downs of a relationship and how they would make the same mistakes all over again.

Watch the video below and stay tuned for more new music from The Catching!

Chase Atlantic Release “Why Stop Now” Video

Chase Atlantic just dropped their ice cold new video for “Why Stop Now” from the second installment of what’s to become their debut album.  The latest video has the trio in the beautifully snow-covered Yosemite National Park directed by Jake Stark.  Capturing the hollow, haunting nature of the song with nothing but natural light, the group took to their surroundings and even tossed a few snowballs back and forth.

Clinton, Mitchel, and Christian are set to release the next triage of songs this week but we can’t get over the first two parts!  Watch the video for “Why Stop Now” below.

Be sure to grab a copy of “Part Two” on iTunes or Amazon now!

Artist To Watch: The YRS

The YRS, pronounced “The Years” are an R&B boyband in the most pure sense of the word consisting of 5 guys based in Atlanta, GA (where the peaches grow and the girls speak real slow!)  Dom, Taylor, Jay, Kyle, and Nate are ready to bring their sweet harmonies and perfectly choreographed moves to a city near you!  We caught The YRS when they opened for Austin Mahone in New York at Wester Hall but these guys are already setting their sights of playing much bigger venues on their own very soon.

The YRS not only won us over with their hypnotic dance moves but each guy has a voice as smooth as honey and when you blend all 5 voices together, the harmonies are heaven sent. Dom, Taylor, Kyle, Jay, and Nate got to sing for the legendary Bobby Brown who not only gave them his seal of approval, he joined in!

That time we sang with @kingbobbybrown 🙏🏼🙏🏼💯

A post shared by The YRS (@the.yrs) on

The guys definitely know how to put on a show because we’re pretty sure every single person who caught them opening for Austin Mahone is now a fan.

They also love spending time with their fans after the show, going live on Instagram, and even invited some lucky fans to film a short video for their new song “Party All The Time” on their bus in New York!

Stay tuned for more from The YRS because these guys are just getting started.  Look out for their first official single “Party All The Time” to be released very soon on Cash Money Records!

Album Preview: Broadside’s “Paradise”- Due Out June 16th

Broadside’s sophomore album “Paradise” is being heralded as the ultimate Summer album and rightfully so!  Every track is filled with sunny riffs and soaring vocals urging the listener to chase their dreams and really embrace the good and bad things in their lives.   From the stark contrast between the upbeat music and the dark introspective lyrics, Broadside are balancing the two polar opposites in perfect harmony.

Singer Oliver Baxxter’s lyrics will hit close to home for many, frequently speaking out about anxiety on “Laps Around A Picture Frame,” online culture and feeling alone on “Summer Stained,” and self sabotaging thoughts on the sunny “Who Cares?” However, the best song on the album comes at the very end in the form of the island infused “I Love You, I Love You, It’s Disgusting.”  The ukulele driven love song is sure to be a favorite purely for its simple honesty.

When we sat down with Broadside just before the album release, Ollie spoke about his favorite song on the record, “Summer Stained.” “It’s about post-Warped Tour depression which I think will register well with people. And it’s half acoustic which is new for us.”  The song as a whole is a painful reminder that nothing good can stay like Warped Tour, which only lasts for the Summer.  The song can mean something different to every person who listens to it.

High points of the album include “Tunnel Vision,” charging full force about fitting in with your peers, and “Disconnect,” which tackles the attachment we have with social media “likes” that ultimately mean nothing.  Ollie asks “When’s the last time you felt alive?” begging the listener to disconnect, unplug your mind, and seize the day.  “Miss Imperius” might be our favorite track on the album solely due to it’s bouncy drum and bass lines in the verses and the ripping guitar solo!

Broadside have crafted the most sonically diverse and deeply pop infused record of their career so far and we can’t wait to see what’s in store because there’s no where to go but up from here! “Paradise” is due out June 16th through Victory Records.

Watch our interview with Broadside and get to know the guys a little better!

Pre-order “Paradise” on iTunes or Amazon now.  Pre-order bundles are still available through the band’s official website and include exclusive merch items like “Paradise” themed sunglasses and enamel pins.

Broadside Release “Laps Around A Picture Frame”

Broadside are showing that it’s okay to not be okay on their latest release “Laps Around A Picture Frame” off their highly anticipated second album “Paradise.”  The new song showcases two different view points addressing anxiety, panic attacks, and feeling totally isolated in a crowded room which is something that is more common than you might imagine.  The song is the first time guitarist Dorian Cooke steps up to the mic, breaking his silence to share his effortlessly smooth vocals and to split harmonies with front man Ollie Baxxter.

When asked about the track, Cooke says “We wrote the music, lyrics, and arrangement around a panic attack in a crowded environment. Even the name is an exercise for panic attacks taught to me by a therapist. The persona I represent is of someone that’s on the higher end of the social spectrum – someone popular and beautiful on the outside, but has that constant struggle internally.” Baxxter adds, “I portray a young female persona shaped by the harshness of her environment, which is a story shared with me by a close friend whenever she is in a public setting. I know it’s something much more common than people tend to show.”

Listen to “Laps Around A Picture Frame” below.

Broadside just wrapped up their final tour before the album drops June 16th, and the guys announced two new festival shows this Summer, “Syke Fest” in their native Richmond, VA on July 15th and a headlining slot at Sophomore Slump Fest in Greensboro, NC on August 5th.
