Kissin Dynamite Release New Video For ‘Only The Dead’

After charting on #2 on the German album charts with their seventh studio album, Not The End Of The Road, in January, German rock sensations KISSIN’ DYNAMITE will finally embark to a German tour to celebrate their new album.

In conjunction with this announcement, the five-piece have released a new single taken from Not The End Of The Road, entitled “Only The Dead” – a smashing hymn luring with the addictive vocal textures of singer Hannes Braun accenting their high-voltage stadium rock sound. The song gets you in the perfect mood for big stages and chanting crowds! With “Only The Dead”, the band picks up where they left off at the #3 spot on the German Rock Radio Airplay Charts, achieved with their previous single “Not The End Of The Road”, which stayed in the top 10 for weeks.

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE on the single:
“‘Only The Dead can be free from sorrow’ is a sarcastic truth: No matter how much you care about your mental health, in the end we’re only humans and literally can´t beat off ANY shit that comes our way.
So the message to the people is quite simple: Don’t take everything so seriously all the time and don’t let it get too close to you. Just grin (like skeletons do) and you’ll feel better, no matter what is bothering you. Life is too short to be anxious and worried all the time. Start giving a shit!”

Melbourne, Australia- Rock band Press Club have announced new, self-produced album ‘Endless Motion’ due out 14th October 2022 on Hassle Records.

It’s a track that makes you feel those tense moments of insecurity but also that triumphant feeling of letting go. Foster says ‘Eugene’ is about “being stuck in a cycle of having so many things running through your head/things you need to say but being unable to express them in fear of being taken the wrong way.”

Bessie Turner Releases New Mixtape ‘arrabbiata’

Suffolk songwriter Bessie Turner shares her new mixtape ‘Arrabiatta’ on today via her own Good Shout Records

Falling in line with artists like Phoebe Green and She Drew The Gun (or further afield Soccer MommySnail Mail and Stella Donnelly) in her introspective and engaging indie-rock, the mixtape showcases Bessie’s expert approach towards marrying gritty and dreamy sounds, and tackling Big Themes with a mixture of emotional precision and playful levity.  

Lead single ‘It Was Nothing’ – playlisted by BBC 6 Music, and acclaimed by Consequence and CRACK Magazine – is followed in focus by mixtape centrepiece ‘JUJU’. It’s a brooding track, ruminating on the non-linear emotional journey around making tough decisions, as Bessie explains: 

“I wrote the track when I was trying to navigate myself through a tricky situation, and I was feeling quite alone but with that space and loneliness I felt really quite free. 

It’s about bad vibes, good vibes, all the feelings really. Disappointments, anger, feeling strong, feeling like you might be getting somewhere, feeling like dancing, feeling like everything is going to shit.

To me its biggest theme is trust and boundaries but that might be different for the listener. I like people to make their own interpretations of my songs, it’s always so interesting to see what it means to ears that aren’t mine.” 

Whilst the mixtape feels holistic in its construction – there’s also a sense of transience. This is a comma, not a full stop – and it is building anticipation for the story to come. Nowhere is this better emphasised than on the inclusion of momentary closer ‘Ta-Rah’:  

“It’s a slowed down section of a song I made with Joe (COURAGE) which you’ll hopefully be able to hear soon. It leans into the future I guess, it’s a bit weird, it doesn’t feel very final, I didn’t just want to make another EP with your standard wham bam songs. I’ve done that before, I’ll likely do it again. But at the moment I’m saving my most precious jewels for the album which is a long time coming – but it’s still coming…” 

An authentic approach to her music comes naturally, and results in an all-round magnetic presence – as a feature interview with The Line of Best Fit exposes: “She is honest to the last, and it’s absolutely brilliant.”

My Kid Brother Shares New Lyric Video For ‘Never Break Your Heart’

Recently My Kid Brother have released the lyric video for “Never Break Your Heart.” 

“Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with a melody in my head and I’ll hop downstairs and make a voice memo so I don’t forget it,” says MKB frontman Christian Nenonakis.“That’s pretty much how I got the initial melody for the chorus of ‘Never Break Your Heart.’ The lyrics came from my half-dream state ad-libs. When I listened back the next day, I really liked the melody and the line ‘I’ll never break your heart,’ so I wrote the song around those two things. I genuinely love my girlfriend, so it was an easy song to write.”

Check out the track below.

Pre-orders for the debut record, ‘Happy/Mad.Weird.Sad’ are available via the following link. The record is to be released on 7th October 2022.

IOTA Release New Single, ‘Take It’


Bristol-based rock five-piece IOTA are pleased to announce the release of their upcoming single ‘Take It’, due for release July 15th 2022.

After their formation in 2019, the band released their debut single ‘My Enemy’ to critical acclaim, which saw them championed by the likes of Classic Rock Magazine and Kerrang!, and quickly selling out shows in their hometown of Bristol as well as appearing on festival bills such as The Great Escape and 2000 Trees.

Just before the pandemic hit, vocalist Jodie Robinson set up a recording studio “through the urge to break out of mundane jobs and take creative control of our own music and time”, she states.  When lockdown did hit, she had to move into the studio to be able to afford to keep it going whilst the whole band clubbed together, helping with the building of the space.

Goldie Vargas Shares Debut EP, ‘Golden’

Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Goldie Vargas is releasing her debut EP, GOLDEN.’ The 5-track EP includes past singles like “Moving in Reverse,” “Canyon” and “Strawberry Kisses,” as well as two brand new tracks, “Gravity” and “Mary Jane.”

At just 21 years old, Goldie Vargas exudes a musicality wise beyond her years. Her music is the definition of California cool with breezy soundscapes, intimate lyricism, and dreamy melodies. Working with her producer Adam Gurr in Topanga Canyon, Goldie has spent the last two years crafting her debut EP, ‘GOLDEN.’

Goldie elaborates on her new EP: “‘GOLDEN’ was written during a time in my life where there was so much change happening  a worldwide pandemic had just started, I was at the end of my teen years and I was going through everything from breakups, mental health struggles and finding myself as a woman and not a girl. My first EP feels like a short story on what it’s like being young, sad and still trying to find a hope in this world.”

Turnover Announce New Record, ‘Myself In The Way’ Via Run For Cover Records

Virginia band Turnover announces their fifth full-length album ‘Myself in the Way’ will be out 04 November via Run For Cover Records. Along with the album’s announcement, Turnover have shared the title track ‘Myself in the Way’ featuring vocals from Brendan Yates of Turnstile. Along with ‘Myself in the Way,’ the 12-track album will include the previously released singles ‘Mountains Made of Clouds’ and ‘Wait Too Long,’ which arrived with home-video style footage created by the band along with friends Blair Kemp and Kyle Lamb.

Speaking about the meaning behind ‘Myself in the Way,’ vocalist Austin Getz says, “Over the last couple of years, I really tried to stop finding reasons why not to do something. This song specifically is about getting engaged despite fears I’ve always had of being able to provide for a family, to give as much as someone you love might need forever. It’s about letting love lead the way despite your fears, about not letting your doubts, your ego, your self get in the way of it.”

‘Myself in the Way’ was born out of Turnover’s desire to continue evolving their sound, making each body of work more exploratory than the last, but it’s also a byproduct of the band’s growth both as individuals and collectively. Armed with a flurry of new ways for the band to express themselves creatively, the band challenged themselves to make their most ambitious body of work to date. Co-produced by frontman Austin Getz alongside frequent collaborator Will Yip, ‘Myself In The Way’ sounds more expansive than anything they’ve done, intently honing in on sound design this time around, and yet it’s wholeheartedly more intimate and self-reliant on their vision and execution. Bassist Danny Dempsey painted the cover artwork himself, and longtime touring guitarist Nick Rayfield contributed songs to the album to lend an additional spark. The album also features guest appearances from peers and friends like Bre Morell of Austin-based band Temple of Angels on the track ‘Ain’t Love Heavy,’ and Turnstile’s Brendan Yates on the title track out today.

In 2019, Turnover released their fourth studio album ‘Altogether’, which The FADER described as “their weirdest and most accessible to date” and features the stand out tracks ‘Plant Sugar’ and ‘Much After Feeling.’ 2017 saw the release of their celebrated album ‘Good Nature’, which features the hit song ‘Super Natural.’

Molteno Releases Music Video For Track, ‘Moonlight’

UK Alt-Pop artist MOLTENO returns with her new single ‘Moonlight’. Writing in her bedroom studio before taking her ideas to be built up with collaborators, the east London based artist blends real with surreal to create her own unique, ethereal soundscapes. An accomplished vocalist, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, MOLTENO has been praised as the “love child of Björk and Bat For Lashes”, acquiring support across national radio, tastemaker press and editorial playlists on Spotify and Apple Music. 

Speaking about the single, MOLTENO shares: “After experiencing lucid dreaming, with ‘Moonlight’ I wanted to explore the idea of travelling and connecting through dreams. What if we truly wake up in our dreams and travel by moonlight? It’s the first single from ‘Element 2’ – the second of four EPs that aim to celebrate the elements and the way nature connects us.”

The new single is also set to be accompanied by a Daisy Moseley directed music video. MOLTENO adds: “Inspired by Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Drive’ mixed with Ken Russell’s ‘The Devils’, the video for Moonlight explores the feminine and tarot symbolism of the moon. It follows me on a drive in my 90s Peugeot 205 CJ under the full moon, encountering surreal lucid scenes, eventually arriving at a kitsch moon ceremony. 

The cast and crew were mostly made up of friends and family that grew up in the same valley as me which made filming it there extra special. Working with Daisy Moseley on another video was a joy and I love the way we’re visualising my music together, there’s a synergy.”

No Stranger to the live circuit, the solo artist has appeared at the likes of Camp Bestival, Fractalight Festival Of Light, Camden Assembly, The Finsbury and The Victoria to name just a few, as well as live radio performances on Shoreditch FM and Soho Radio.

Having already made a name for herself as one to watch with a whole host of national support, MOLTENO is heading into more new releases with a feverish excitement surrounding her music. The new single ‘Moonlight’ is set to be released July 1st.

THICK Release New Single & Video For ‘Tell Myself’

Brooklyn pop-flecked punk trio THICK share their second single, ‘Tell Myself’ inviting listeners to time travel as the band tenderly imparts wisdom to their younger selves.

The track follows the announcement of their forthcoming new album, ‘Happy Now’ and lead-single ‘Loser’, which has already received multiple spins on BBC 6Music and BBC Radio 1. Working again with producer Joel Hamilton (Iggy Pop, Juiceboxxx) and recorded at Studio G Brooklyn, the LP is set to release 19 August via Epitaph Records. THICK will also be touring the album in the autumn on a run of US headline dates.

About the track, THICK share: “As you get older, you sometimes look at your little-kid self and wish you could give them a hug and tell them everything’s going to be okay.  It’s not about minimizing life experiences, but a reminder that you’re stronger than you think and that—despite what it feels like in the moment—there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

All New York State natives, THICK’s three members first crossed paths through shows at Brooklyn’s DIY/all-ages spaces and soon became a mainstay in that very scene. Since signing to Epitaph in 2018—and making their label debut with their self-titled third EP the following year—the band has dramatically expanded their reach and toured all over the country, including a 2021 run with punk legends Flogging Molly and Violent Femmes. But even as their fanbase grows exponentially, THICK thrive on forging an uncommonly close connection with their audience. “Getting to share our songs with new people and build community in places we’ve never been before has been the most fulfilling experience for us,” says Black. “We want to leave everyone smiling from ear to ear and get them moving around and hopefully look up at us and say, ‘Oh, I can do that. I’m gonna start my own band now.’”

Pre-orders for the upcoming record, ‘Happy Now’ are available via the following link.
