Kings favorite Night Lights are back with a new track Gimme which comes off the new EP Expectations out June 3rd. Mau notes “’Gimme’ compares the frustration the protagonist feels for asking a girl out to dance with the helpless feeling of two people floating side by side in space.”
The Los Angeles based indie rock act inspired by the likes of Mutemath and Two Door Cinema Club began making noise early in the year with the two track Childish and Take My Hand which earned them praise from EarMilk, PopMatters, Baeble Music, Indie Shuffle, and of course Yours Truly.
Having landed on the Viral 50 Global and Viral 50 US Spotify charts, Night lights which are made up of with members from Mexico, Japan, California, and Norway, could become the next indie staples.
Catch these boys at the Lyric Theatre in LA on 6/2/.
Coming out of sleepy Charleston, I’m feeling the psych-indie rock act Beach Tiger. The indie rock quartet is fresh on the scene, yet their two song releases have already garnered 30k SoundCloud streams, and music blogs such as Indie Shuffle, Hillydilly, and The Wild Honey Pie are loving the band.
Getting in touch with the band has been a bit tough as they have been holed up in studio all week with little sleep, but I am expecting big things from Beach Tiger. Check out the track Mind Make.
Wayfarers are showing off their indie chops. Having met in their respective bands on tour with artist such as Demi Lovato and Echosmith, the electronic indie duo wasted no time creating the catchy radio ready track The New Original.
