Single Reviews

Songs in tune with your heart… we think.

PUBLIC - "Heartbeating": My, my - how far this band has come. PUBLIC, formerly known as CROWN, have opened for Twenty One Pilots as teens and now they are touring veterans with the likes of Walk the Moon and Oh Honey.

all of these reactions are to LOUD singles

Highly Suspect - "Lost": When the dude from Highly Suspect starts singing I immediately picture a dude with a mullet, a stache and a denim jacket in a trademark pose wielding an axe (guitar).

Songs worth listening to at 1:37AM

Fingers - "So it Seems": This song is effervescent, lush, and layered beyond anything we've seen from Fingers thus far. This marks the start of a transition to a new identity of sorts, that will culminate in the release of the band's debut full length Little Waves, to be released later this spring. The steady nature of the ...

I have no idea what to title this, but here’s another single reviews post

Temple Invisible - "Everything From Above": Listening to Temple Invisible is like hearing an engine roar to life, and then being surprised at how elegant it sounds. On one hand, you hear effects akin to a laser gun going "pew pew pew" sci-fi movie style, yet you hear beautiful vocals that strip away the cheese. Let me repeat ...
