“"The song is inspired by Moto Boys like Mickey Rourke, Marlon Brando, and Steve McQueen, so of course we took a lot of inspiration from our favorite biker movies like The Wild One, Rumble Fish, On any Sunday, Easy Rider, Hells Angeles ‘69 and The Girl on a Motorcycle. I had worked with (director) Ambar Navarro and Max on another project and loved their other work, so we wanted to work with them on this.“ - Watch HERE!


Dealing with themes of mental illness, recovery and learning to love oneself again, ‘Psychosis of Dreams’ is a driving, dark electro concept album with touches of folk and industrial sounds. Out March 5th on Handsmade! Check out first single “Interim” HERE


Sparked by a throwaway phrase from Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘Exotic Monsters’ is a laundry list of asynchronous human needs and desires; a reflection of our increasingly confused, disconnected and polarised lives. // ‘Exotic Monsters’ also features several drum samples created by the European Space Agency, recorded at their European Space Research and Technology Centre in the Netherlands. Laura Kidd says: “Using sounds from space on a song about feeling disconnected from life on earth just felt wildly appropriate,” Listen HERE!


The song hits like a sigh, deep and unconsciously shed. Mat Weitman’s sauntered vocals slouch nicely in the shade of his crimson slides, strums pulled close and comforting like an heirloom afghan. His debut LP ‘Grief Museum’ is out February 12th via Styles Upon Styles. Listen HERE


It makes perfect sense to unveil a new project with the intro track to your first album—which is exactly what musician and artist Ali Beletic is doing today with “Tune In,” the first track from her forthcoming album The Year of the Statement under the name Alivenique. Without giving away too much of what the record has in store, the prelude demonstrates the LP’s sonic palette with tribal drumbeats (it was produced by Akron/Family’s Seth Olinsky) and sunny synth lines soundtracking the songwriter’s looped vocal repetition of “Now that I’ve got your attention.” Check it out HERE!
