The experimental alt pop/punk/post-hardcore group Audio Decoy today released the latest single "Never Wanted To Lose". Written from the perspective of how it can be hard it can be to move past the sunken cost fallacy in relationships, the song's chorus inevitably resonates with lines such as "angles and shadows can't obscure the reasons I doubted the so-called truth, pitting my spirits up against everything I never wanted to lose".
Don't lose out on listening to this this new upbeat heavy rock track, available everywhere!
The London rock group The Bigger Picture have released their upbeat, synth and guitar-heavy track "Empires" as the last single off their new EP A Ghost & A Wish. The band recently played live again at Fiddler's Elbow with acts including Sonic Property and Caper, and are excited to finally release their new EP this weekend with producer Matteo Galesi (Frank Mada, Omahrose, Tarantola, etc).
The single "Empires" follows "Bullets Little Thoughts" and continues the band's trajectory towards a very approachable, energetic rock sound with massive appeal. The track opens with an arpeggiated synth akin to perhaps the intro to the Stranger Things TV show, then drops into a flurry of all instruments in their full glory led by soaring guitar leads.
The chorus really exemplifies the dueling vocalists synergy with soaring, sing-a-long harmonies like "teach me how to feel alive". Overall, "Empires" has great dynamic range with softer passages allowing the synth production to really shine, but balances this with the uplifting chorus hooks and powerful guitar riffs.
The band also worked with Bohemian Basterds to produce a music video for the single which fans of alternative/arena rock should check out!
Coming off the success of the prior single "Eden", Sinner's Rise continue their onslaught with the newest single and lyric video for "Suzuka"
Don't miss your chance to check out this straight banger below and on our Core Rock Bangers playlist via Spotify!
A tongue-in-cheek nod to popular mainstream heavy acts like Babymetal/Nickelback with a mass appeal to larger audiences, "Suzuka" touches on the struggles to reach success as a heavy music artist while driving the listener through catchy one-liners during hooks like "while you taste success I've been chasing it". At the end however, we realize the irony behind the song as it turns on itself with it's final, gutteral utterances: "dance to this".
Certainly worthy of a dance in the moshpits for January.
Norfolk, Virginia native James Arellano today releases his debut single music video "Memory" available now on YouTube and all major music streaming services!
"Acoustic folk-pop rising into pure pop warmth unites with melancholic, characterful vocals as James Arellano digs deep into heartache [...] Memory feels like a partly familiar, well-written pop song on first listen. There’s a recognizable depth of tone to James’ vocal though, and it soon becomes clear that there’s a fairly unique nature to his writing style, too."
Following up on the success of their single "Entropy" and multi-country tour in support of their 2020 full-length "Death Electronica", the Nottingham, UK-based duo Bone Cult today release their latest single "Premature Burial". The track comes along with a killer music video featuring copies of bodies with the duo's signature masks, floating in what could be described as an endless zero-gravity space chamber of countless panels.
Mixed at Labyrinth Studios in Nottingham, "Premature Burial" propels the band into a spacier, ambient territory. Bone Cult incorporate their signature blend of synthetic and organic musical elements on this song, backed by time-twisting dirty drum breaks and crooning objective, apathetic lyrics like "I take no pleasure in your sacrifice" or "you can't taste the air you breathe".
Fans of "White Pony"-era Deftones or Prodigy with more progressive-minded rock and electronic tastes will find solace in the immersion of this Bone Cult track's delightfully haunting visual and auditory escape.
