Pale Waves Release Debut Album “My Mind Makes Noises”

Manchester outfit Pale Waves just dropped their debut album “My Mind Makes Noises” to rave reviews and ushers in a brand new era of dark synth.  Pale Waves have proven that they have the ability to masterfully blend silvery synths and polished pop hooks into their own new vintage style.

Each track on this exceptional debut album is unique in its own right.  Lyrically, this album touches on everything from love and loss, to feeling so insecure about yourself and wondering if you’ll ever be loved by anyone again.  Pale Waves crafted an album that will stand the test of time and certainly passed our “drive fast down the highway with all the windows down and the radio up” test.

Pale Waves are coming back to North American this Fall with tons of headlining dates across the US.  Tickets are on sale now!  Check out all of the dates below.

MKTO Return With New Single “How Can I Forget”

Malcom Kelley and Tony Oller aka MKTO are back and they’re better than ever!  The two best friends return after a two year hiatus right where they left off with a brand new single called “How Can I Forget.”  They teamed up with longtime collaborators and co-writers Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou [Selena Gomez, Ne-Yo] and Evan “Kidd” Bogart[Beyonce, Rihanna] and promise that more new music is on the way soon!  “How Can I Forget” brings their classic R&B charisma, finger snaps, and a bright guitar riff marking a new chapter for MKTO.

When asked about the timing, “The timing was just right,” says Malcolm. “This was the moment. We had the records ready. We wanted to deliver for the fans who had been waiting.”  Tony said, “We’re both just so humbled and thankful to the people who have supported our music. It’s only that sort of support that allows us to get back out there. There’s an energy between us that we never found anywhere else. We’re so excited to be back.”

YUNGBLUD Releases Debut Album “21st Century Liability”

Dominic Harrison, professionally known as YUNGBLUD is coming out of the gates swinging with infectious poppy melodies and hip hop beats contrasting with dark angsty lyrics on his first full length album.  He’s had major success with tracks like “I Love You, Will Ya Marry Me” which documents the tragic love story of a man who proposed to his girlfriend with graffiti on Sheffield’s Park Hill bridge.  YUNGBLUD also has two tracks, “Falling Skies” and “Tin Pan Boy” featured on the 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 soundtrack.

With a debut album just released through Locomotion/Geffen Records, massive crowds at the final cross country 2018 Vans Warped Tour, and word of mouth praise from every corner of the globe, YUNGBLUD is destined to be a star with a great career on the very near horizon.

While the album has radio friendly bouncey pop tracks like “Die For The Hype,” YUNGBLUD’s wide range of influences are apparent through the entire album with few tracks sounding the same.  He uses this to his advantage and created his own brand of genre bending tracks including the album title track, “21st Century Liability” which draws influence from early 90s hip hop drum loops, crunchy grunge rock guitars, and enough angst to power a whole city.

YUNGBLUD just dropped a music video for his latest single, “Medication” directed by Adam Powell and takes a wild medicated trip.  Watch the video below!

If you missed YUNGBLUD playing Vans Warped Tour, you have another chance!  He’ll be hopping back on Warped Tour from July 26th – 31st.  He’s also hitting a whole bunch of cities for the “21st Century Liability Tour” throughout the US including a stop in NYC.  Check out all of the dates HERE!

Neverkept Release Debut Single – “Vertigo”

Formerly known as Count To Four, the band are rebranding with a brand new singer (Broadside guitarist Dorian Cooke) and a new name!  Neverkept are here to stay despite the notion of the name.  They have a reputation as being one of the hardest working unsigned underground DIY bands and they intend to keep that momentum!  The new name comes from the personal convictions of the band’s members as well as the music touching on the notion of realizing lost hope and acknowledging that possibility of “what if.”

Neverkept recently dropped their debut single since the name and lineup change called “Vertigo.”  The new track is a tour de force wrapped up with pure renewed energy. Watch the official music video below!

Grab a copy of “Vertigo” on iTunes or Amazon or stream the single on Spotify.

Layover Return With “Your Laughter Never Leaves”

Despite only having 5 tracks, Layover returns after a 2 year hiatus with a brand new EP beckoning back to the golden era of emo pop punk. The bands’ first EP since they announced an extended break in 2016, “Your Laughter Never Leaves” has Layover playing with a renewed energy and a band that’s matured both sonically and personally.

“YLNL” is filled with equal parts of wit and grit addressing a wide range of topics such as mental health and loss, sensitively and sincerely.  When asked about the new tracks, vocalist Luke Rainsford said, “We are bringing a sound that is predominantly based within the American market. Our honesty and intense live shows bring a refreshing atmosphere that we feel sets us apart, but ultimately we are just 4 close friends trying to share our music.”  

Watch the official video for “Slumber” below.
