Sub-Radio will perform Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) tonight October 9th. The 6 piece pop-rock act based in DC has a catalog of fun-upbeat songs filled with ‘woah ah oh’s’ and gang vocals. Think Walk The Moon with big dance hooks. The band notes, ” I think we’d like fans to take an optimistic view on whatever they’re doing. There’s a lot of negativity in the world today and we wanted to make something that oozes positive vibes, floral prints and lots of dancing”. The band has been packing out 200 capacity venues in DC and while carving out a path to NYC.
Kimono Loco drops the fun and playful Big Boy. Think The 1975 and The Neighbourhood meets Fallout Boy. Produced by Irish producer and Westwood Studios engineer, Shane Shanahan (Kygo, Kanye West, Frank Ocean), the band tells Kings, “We’ve always loved pop music and this track is unashamedly pop in the best way”. The band will perform The Finborough Arms (UK) on October 26th. Check it out!
Newly formed Parlors drop their debut track State Lines. The alternative rock act couldn’t have come out at a better time with a regenerated interest in the classic rock sound. Moreover, the NYC based 4 piece indie rock outfit sound like seasoned professionals. According to the group, “their repertoire spans from hazy, desert-inspired tunes that might be heard at a dive bar in Tucson to 4-on-the-floor stompers”. Give it a Stream!
Hotels are now sticking their nose in the music business. You heard it right. In fact, the experiment is already on its way with the first artist signing. The Marriott owned W Hotel Records signed R&B singer-songwriter Amber Mark. The first release by Mark is a Kings Go Forth’s “High On Your Love”. The Hotel chain noted it will sign 4 artists in the coming year. Unlike Starbucks which launched a now defunct record label in 2007, the Marriott backed music label will provide the artist with recording space, video shoot locations, distribution, streaming services and even vinyl production. How will W Records attract artists? They’ll get exposure to the million members of Marriott’s global rewards programs says the Hotel Chain. We’ll follow the new signings and keep an eye on the impact.
Indie pop trio Caezar releases the radio ready Hold On. Upon hearing the track, I was instantly hooked. Think Ed Sheeran meets Imagine Dragons with new spices added to the recipe. The band is releasing an EP which was produced by Justin Broad who has worked with Jessie J and Corinne Bailey Rae.
How did the band form?
Chris and I (Rich) first met through our Rugby club, Old Cryptians RFC, in Gloucester, UK. We both spent our late teens playing together and forming a close friendship as teammates. In 2014, we both had injuries that put us out of action from playing rugby for a while (Chris hurt his hip and Rich knocked out a few teeth!). As a result we spent our time sulking around, not really knowing what to do ourselves. We started messing around with Chris singing and Rich playing the guitar. After a few public shows, it became apparent that there was a clear chemistry that crowds responded to. This culminated with the two being invited to open the prestigious Barn on The Farm Festival, which featured Hozier and James Bay that year, and this experience really opened our eyes to a career in music. A few years later and fortune brought Zoe into our lives – soon as we heard her sing we knew we wanted her as part of the band, and she’s been the heart of the band ever since! CONTINUE READING
