Watch out for Silvertone Hills and the new song “Free Me.” Reminiscent of early 2000s pop and alternative rock from the underground scene, the new release is part of the deluxe version of Silvertone Hills’ debut LP, “Limits.”

The band says, “Free Me almost started out as a joke lyrical exercise just to get the words flowing, talking about getting frustrated during lockdown “we never could’ve seen it,” etc. Once I started getting deeper into it, it become more of an anthem for escape, from personal burdens and learning to let go. Like most of our songs, we try and make a catchy/melodic resolve in the chorus, so you can really feel the frustration boiling over by the time Liam belts the chorus.”

Silvertone Hills released their first album, “Limits,” on October 20th. The album showcases the band’s diverse influences, ranging from ‘90s British melodies to ‘60s ballads with some psychedelic twists. The songs are short, well-produced, and feature memorable melodies with elements like guitars and synthesizers. The lyrics cover themes like defiance in the rock songs, love in the pop tunes, and reflections on faith and morality in the moody ballads.

Producer Zach Gerber, known for his work with Walk off the Earth and USS, helped the band select their best material from nearly 40 songs. The tracks are concise, leading quickly to the chorus, making you want to hit replay. The album has already been featured on Spotify’s “Ready to Rock” playlist, played on campus radio stations across Canada, and covered by Exclaim!, The Edge, and more.

Check out PrettyUgly’s latest track “LALALA” for a burst of attitude. It’s like Billie Eilish meets Lorde. Produced by Liam Jones (The Line) and mixed by Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Elton John).

Comprising former solo artist PARKER (Parker Goff Chrisbens), along with her bandmates and producers Joey Cavallo and Quinn Smialek, Pretty Ugly makes a strong debut with their first official song, “Eat My Words.”

With influences from artists like Radiohead, No Doubt, Miley Cyrus, and Lorde, Pretty Ugly aims to become the next big thing. Their indie pop-rock sound and energetic performances have quickly gained recognition.

Their latest release, ‘LALALA,’ is described by the band as “a multi-genre exploration of feeling bored and stale when everything is stable and going well, and instead being drawn to trouble and yearning for a toxic, complicated relationship that promises chemistry and excitement.” Give it a stream on KOAR’s indie invaders playlist.

Keep an eye out for Dylan Galvin and his track ‘How to Write a Pop Song.’ Drawing inspiration from classic pop, the song is a clever blend of George Michael and John Mayer vibes with a touch of 80’s synth-pop. It serves as a satirical take on the music industry in 2024, playfully poking fun at the predictability of today’s top 40 hits. Adding to the intrigue, it seems like Carlos Santana makes a special appearance in the song.

The track could easily find a home on Spotify’s Pop Rising and Pop Sauce playlists.

Dylan says, “If you think too hard, you will get it wrong, you got to stay nice and stupid, if you wanna write a pop song”

Dylan Galvin, known for his successful EPs and mentorship by Paul Simon at Berklee College of Music, contributed to the score, sound design, and voice overs for the documentary “The Essential Church.” The documentary reached #1 in the Apple TV store’s “documentaries” category. The Daily Vault notes that Galvin’s music, whether lively or thoughtful, comes straight from the heart. CONTINUE READING
