Indie rock duo ØZWALD releases Ivy League. You’ll love if you’re in the need of something 70’s or Beatle-ish. This is the project of lead singer and guitarist Jason Wade and Steve Stout of the band Lifehouse. The latest track comes off their new album young suburban minds.
Currently working on their 6th record, the band is looking to release 2 full length records a year.
“Our only rule for making music in this band is that their are no rules and we try to just go with what we’re feeling in the moment for any record and not get stuck into any genre” shares ØZ. Give the track a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
Up & coming alt pop artist Stef released the 8 track ‘A Glitch in Our Virtual Reality’. You’ll like if you’re a fan of lower register dark pop ala Billie Eilish.
“A Glitch In Our Virtual Reality represents the lifecycle in a relationship. Each song being a sentence long forming a paragraph. I wanted the EP to tell a story” shares Stef.
The 20 year originally from Alabama now resides in Nashville. She’s landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Apple’s New Music Daily. Give the track “here’s what we we’re not gonna do” on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
“High is about the feeling and imagination behind whatever gets you high; not just the obvious drugs/alcohol, but also about being lifted on living in the moment and taking it all as it comes. This past year has been a tough one for all of us and we hope “High” provides that escape that we’ve all been craving” shares the indie pop act.
Look out for Kings favorite BELARO and her 4th single “Grateful.” The pop-trap ballad was co-written with Vanessa Campagna. It was produced by MakeTheNoises and Olivier Bassil, the production team behind Kevin Gates’ latest single, Puerto Rico Luv.
“The song means so much to me because it’s the most honest song I’ve written so far. On top of that I was able to write it with some of my favorite people. I hope this song can carry every listener on a journey of self love as much as it did for me writing it” shares BELARO.
The Los Angeles based 20 year old singer songwriter has landed on Spotify’s “just hits,” “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds Pop”
