Kings favorite Hazlett releases ‘Tell Me What You Dream About‘. The Stockholm indie folk artist continues to drop classic after classic impressing listeners alike. The latest track holds up to previous songs, well thought out, hitting all the right emotions.

“I think you need to step out of your own self to see things clearly sometimes. Life becomes pretty heavy when you can’t brush by a little inconvenience or the fear of failing,” Hazlett explained. “So, I tried to picture what my future self would be telling me if we were friends. Waiting for me, cheering me on and reminding me of everything I’ve done so far. I think we forget that we need to encourage ourselves from time to time.”

Hazlett just wrapped up performing at St Pancras Old Church in London, UK this coming Monday, 7th November. The Australia-born and Stockholm-based multi-instrumentalist clocked over 30 million streams and garnering praise from from NME, The Line of Best Fit, Atwood Magazine, Clash.

“I wanted to write this album differently; the songs are conversations being retold by a friend of a friend,” he reveals. “Anytime you pass another person’s story on, you embellish certain moments because those are the moments worth retelling. Certain details get a little hazy, and some are vivid as if they happened yesterday.”

Indie rock outfit Alberta Cross released the new single ‘Mercy’ that comes off the forthcoming album. The track was written at the legendary The Wool Hall in Frome Somerset with Petter’s long term producer and collaborator, Luke Potashnick.

“Mercy is about just never being able to catch a break and that life can sometimes end up feeling like a broken record,” reflects Petter, who is now living permanently back in the UK after several nomadic years that included chapters in New York, LA and Berlin. “It’s also about when we spiral and watch those around us be affected by it.”

Alberta Cross have toured with Mumford & Sons, Portugal. The Man, Neil Young, Them Crooked Vultures (David Grohl, Josh Homme and John Paul Jones) and Rag N’ Bone Man, performed on TV as well as on The Late Show with David Letterman and Last Call with Carson Daly – had tracks featured in multiple US hit TV series (Million Little Pieces, Sons of Anarchy, Californication) and released six previous albums.

Indie pop duo joan from Little Rock, Arskansas released a new infectious track called Flowers that comes off the forthcoming debut album superglue out in 2023 via Photo Finish Records.

“I remember running around the streets of my best friend’s neighborhood after midnight, skipping around from friend to friend’s house. I remember rushing to my friend’s house after school to rehearse our new songs in his garage. I remember driving around town after the sun went down just because we could. You make so many memories in those formative years. You never think to yourself, ‘this won’t last forever,’ but then you grow. It happens slow – years go by, and seasons change. That’s just life. If you’re lucky, some of those people stick around. But for a lot of us, you’re left asking, ‘Why don’t we talk anymore?’ That’s what this song is to us.” – joan explained.

The twosome is known for creating expansive pop music from inside their bedrooms in deepest Middle America. They’ve garnered over 120 million streams and played sold out shows across the globe including headlining 15,000+ capacity venues in Asia, performing alongside Jeremy Zucker, COIN, Bloc Party and The Aces.

LA indie pop trio Wild releases the throwback Feelin’ Good. It’s a new song but a familiar sound. Fans of Misterwives, The Mowgli’s, and The Head and the Heart will like.

“We make ‘L.A. Folk’,” says Lauren. “If you go to Oregon, Tennessee, or Texas, the genre sounds different. This is what folk would sound like in Los Angeles, because of the production and the hooks.”

Averaging 900k monthly listeners on Spotify, the band garnered 50 million cumulative streams by 2020. They supported acts like Ingrid Michaelson and Spill Canvas on the road.

Indie pop act PEPTALK releases the fun uptempo track Hey! Fans of Maggie Rogers, MUNA and HAIM will love. The trio has landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Fresh Finds, and Pop N’Fresh.

“‘Hey!’ is all about not wanting to mess up a good thing. As we were writing it we drew from not only romantic relationships but our friendship with each other. Ultimately the lyrics are all about faking it til you make it. It really came together once we finished the chorus, as we listened back we left the mic on and it captured us screaming the song together in the studio. It really captured the energy of the song and its message of enjoying the good thing while it’s happening.”
