I’ve become a big fan of Fins, a Berlin act that warped themselves back to the 1980’s. The synth pop act impresses with ‘Dreamer’ — the title track of the upcoming album and the latest ‘Stay On Top‘. The video for the track will take you back to the best of the 80’s. Although little is known about Fins, they have made their mark sonically and visually in such a short time.
Liverpool Katy Alex released her latest single “Light” along with video that will come off her upcoming EP. It’s reminiscence of The Sundays emotive acoustic dream-pop. But she is much more than that. Katy makes full use of percussion instruments and plays the keyboard and guitar. She also performed festivals including Liverpool Sound City and Liverpool International Music Festival and won Merseyrail Sound Station competition. Since embarking on the music scene, Katy has developed a rapid fan base.
Philly new-wave dream act Work Drugs just released the new single ‘American Fool‘ that comes off the forthcoming 2016 LP. As usual, this dream pop duo continuously pumps out catchy atmospheric tracks and ‘American Fool’ nearly put me in a hypnotic-sedating state. The new album is titled ‘False Highs and True Lows‘, and will have a release via Bobby Cahn Records. The band has supported Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, Peter Bjorn, and Band of Horses — and are winners of the Beijing Film and Art Festival’s coveted Crying Monkey Award.
Los Angeles Run River North impresses with their latest track ‘Run Or Hide‘ which comes off the sophomore album “Drinking From A Salt Pond” via Nettwork Records. The video is equally as edgy, punchy, and slick as the track, — revealing that this 6 piece indie-rock outfit means business.
The band who worked with producer Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids) took a different direction creating more of a straight ahead rock record. The new album could take the band to the next level as their debut album gave the band a great kick-off earning them #3 spot on The Billboard Heatseekers chart and late night performances on Jimmy Kimmel and Carson Daly.
