Nashville based rockers COIN have released their self-titled EP. The band recently signed to StarTime International (Peter Bjorn and John and Foster The People) and worked with Grammy nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Emmylou Harris) on their debut full length album due out June 9th. Their sound is a more rock and synth heavy Vampire Weekend mixed with the catchy pop rock song structure of Young The Giant and driving rock sound of Cage The Elephant. Their track “Run” garnered more than 100K plays on Souncloud in less than three weeks after premiering on Idolator.
If you’re an avid follower of Kings then you should know who The Vantage is by now. They made our “Best 2014 Emerging Artist feature” as well as our mid year top 8 emerging artist feature. Ear Milk calls their sound is a blend of poppy indie rock melodies reminiscent of Imagine Dragons with a mixture of dark and sunny guitar riffs to ignite your soul with rock n’ roll”. They have shared the stage with American Authors, The Mowgli’s and Young The Giant. The single On My Way” garnered 354.7K+ Soundcloud streams leading to placements with ABC Family, MTV Networks and LinkedIn.
Molly Moore made the move to Los Angeles since our last feature. Her songs “Ready For Love” and “Hollow” were picked up and transformed into uncharacteristic EDM successes by Canadian Felix Cartal and veteran Dutch duo Dubvision. She signed with manager Ric Aliberte (Billy Idol, KISS), and has worked with a variety of producers, mainly with Steve Dresser (signed to songwriter/producer Busbee & BMG) to help hone her sound. Molly has been compared to the 90’s singers like Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne and Lisa Loeb. Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette will perform a free showcase for BMI on Monday, March 2, 2015.
Indie pop band GGOOLLDD from Milwaukee released a new song Boyz. “GGOOLLDD’s driving, catchy sound brings to mind the post punk flavors of Echo & The Bunnymen, the soaring dreaminess of M83, and some of the playful, sassy alt rock flavors of Metric, particularly on Younger Days” says I Heart Moosiq. GGOOLLDD has shared the stage with the likes of: Yelle, Yacht, Sylvan Esso, Har Mar Superstar, Strand of Oaks, The Family Crest, White Fang, Alvvays, Drowners, The Preatures, and The Polyphonic Spree among others.
