Hey everyone. First off, I have to say apologies on my end for no New Music or Music Video Roundup last week, life got in the way of things for me when I got some more hours at my regular job which added to my other responsibilities. But now, we’re back to normal with things.
We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks and sometimes a little information that comes with them! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!
First up this week are some homegrown heroes in the form of Amongst Thieves. The Post-Hardcore quintet are back with a vengence, having newly recruited bassist Mark Thompson.
Check out ‘Deathwish’ below.
Moving to The Dangerous Summer now with their first release as a band since going as an independant band.
They also posted the following.
In March of 2020 we fulfilled our last record contract.
After a long back and forth with labels, we have decided to go independent. We now have full control and ownership for the first time in our careers.
Please join us in this new adventure into the unknown.”
Check out ‘Fuck Them All’ below.
Now we move to the Australian dark alternative pop artist AViVA with the recent release ‘Evil’.
‘Evil’ is the first single from the second phase of her all encompassing world of music, visual art & forthcoming book. AViVA has already surpassed many of her peers with over 1.8 BILLION streams to date- completely independently.
AViVA’s ‘OUTSiDERS’ who have been part of this special world have found power in the music which explores the challenges of friendship, feelings of isolation and indeed, being an outsider.
New single ‘EViL’ is, on the surface, a non-apology to someone who has done her wrong. The song progresses with the signature vocals and heavy drums that her fans have come to love.
“The song is a ‘heat of the moment’ song. That feeling when someone has screwed you over in some way and you’re so angry you feel like nothing is off the cards. That’s happened to everybody. I think the biggest lesson is that time heals all wounds and the things that mattered so much then, pass and don’t matter anymore. There’s a lyric ‘won’t save you now cause we’re not friends’ which is in reference to how often people cut you out of their life until they need something, then all of a sudden the pop back up. It’s also ironic for both me, AViVA and the character in my book, Teddy. We always end up saving people regardless of what they’ve done to us.”
Expect much more to come from AviVA as you fall under her spell and enter her wicked world.
Next, with a few changes in their lineup as of late, Pop-Rockers Makeout have a new iteration of tracks on the way. Starting with, ‘Home’ this is the first of their material to feature Kyle Dee (Ex- The Frantic and bassist AJ Khah (Ex- Sleep On It).
Dee has said the following on the release.
“‘Home’ is about being completely drained from giving your all to a dead end relationship. It’s about wanting to build a life with somebody and being fed false promises of a picture-perfect future.”
And finally we have something a little harder but loads of fun. To celebrate the streaming numbers for Falling In Reverse, the band have dropped a previously unreleased track.
Thanks to the release of their ‘Popular Monster’ track, the band saw a huge increase in their streaming numbers, which resulted in their all time artist streams surpassing 1 billion in the US and 15 million in the EU.
‘Carry On’ was originally receoreded for their 2017 record, ‘Coming Home’ but didn’t make the final cut for it.
Now, you have the track below and is the final track for this week’s new music roundup.
And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.
