Hear Hear dropped the impressive track Think I’m Doing Better. The track could easily find a home Spotify’s Editorial Indie Playlists. Fans of dream pop and indie pop will love.

The Brooklyn duo is influenced by Todd Rundgren, Blood Orange, Bloc Party, and Prince.

After a chance meeting in Washington Square Park, multi-instrumentalists and producers Ajay Raghuraman and Matt Bray quickly connected over a mutual love of Thai food an an appreciation for esoteric bands. Their omnivorous and eclectic style incorporates the rhythms and melodies of classical Indian music, the textural expansiveness of 70s rock, classic folk warmth, genre-bending pop, sampling and experimental electronics, and the raw lyricism of the 2000s indie they grew up on.

Emarosa released the 80’s influenced track Stay. along with a fun video.

The new album produced by Courtney Ballard range from life and its imperfections to love to innermost struggles.

“Stay really turned into a ‘become what you hate’ story. That feeling of knowing something is bad for you and you’re on the fence but something pushes you over. ‘It’s such a dangerous hunger I can’t help,’ something about that to me screams love/hate and passion. You’re being hunted, she turns you, and you become the hunter. It’s a very vampire/werewolf metaphor. This would have been great if Twilight was in the 80s.” – Bradley Scott

“Every album we outdo ourselves. Sting is no exception. No reservations, no holds barred, this record is unapologetic & defiantly confident.”

The band moved away from the hard rock scene and had a good run in the alternative world with the breakthrough album “Peach Club” in 2019, which claimed a top spot on the U.S. Billboard charts with a sold out US tour.

Under that umbrella, I strive to bring more open conversations about mental health; specifically depression and anxiety; to the forefront” – Jessica Bell

Boo Riley dropped the impressive new single Ghost along with a video. If you love the 70’s, 80’s and disco, you’ll love.

We had a quick Q&A with the Cali based indie artist.

Who are you artist influences?

Steely Dan is my favorite band. I love how they craft songs that are complex yet accessible. I try to do the same with my own writing.

How did the song come about?

I wrote this song from my own ideas of Jesus as he nears death. Something more Last Temptation Of Christ meets Joan Osborne’s, One Of Us, than the commonly held story. As a child, Christianity was forced upon me. I don’t think I actually ever believed any of it, but was so scared by the ideas of burning in hell and letting my parents down that I just went along with it. The song was an attempt to process, and to create a version that rang truer to me.

After watching the video, I need to ask about your dance moves

I am also a Broadway actor/singer/dancer. Musical theater was my first passion. I actually have a B.F.A. in Musical Theater from The Boston Conservatory. My girlfriend, Claire Camp, choreographed the video. I wanted to incorporate roller blading because it was an integral part of my childhood. I’m from Palos Verdes Estates, just south of Los Angeles, and I spent countless hours blading along the beach and playing roller hockey in youth leagues and high school.

And you didn’t fall once roller skating?

Roller blading is almost like walking for me! I’ve been doing it for so long that it’s second nature.
