Two-man electro-rock duo Blood Bullet are back with a new single from their upcoming album “Dawn of the Zombie Age” coming out in December. Check out the song below:
After the sci-fi romance narrative from their second album “The Present Lasts Forever” in 2016, Blood Bullet returns to the familiar sound of their debut release with loud soaring solos, fast tempo tracks, and dark foreboding lyrics, with electronic elements sprinkled in. “Dawn of the Zombie Age” is the first volume of four coming out once a year, which will all be compiled into a two-disc set titled “Eternal Return” when it’s completed.
The story of “The Chosen One” follows the fictional character Izzy, a typical 20-something year old human from earth with dreams of being a famous rock-star. After getting struck by a bullet that led him to an ER as chronicled in Blood Bullet’s debut album, the story continues to find that Izzy’s soul was transferred to the body of a zombie in another world. In this other world, music is intertwined in every aspect of the citizen’s lives, from politics, to religion, to even having mystical power of its own. Izzy must find out why he was “The Chosen One” brought from earth to bring peace in this land against the rise of the zombies who are looking to take music away from the people. Will Izzy use this second chance at life to become a hero, or will he take command of the zombies and feel the power and fame he never could on earth?
Stay tuned for when the second single drops next month!
Run Maggie Run has released its new monochrome video for the song “Endlessly” that showcases the group’s emotion and passion in their performance. Check out the video below:
Formed in late 2015, Run Maggie Run began as the solo project of our singer/rhythm guitarist Gavin Rees, who recorded his first solo EP by himself in his basement. From that recording, the band used it as a foundation to build their own sound from. The group has since had a lineup change and added new sounds to embark on their journey moving forward.
“We wrote [“Endlessly”] during the first few months following the lineup change, and the success of writing it definitely helped push us through that awkward, transitional phase,” the band said in a statement. “Arguably, it’s what gave us the confidence to keep moving forward.”
LA-based Lucy & La Mer is back again with the new single “Rebel Base,” a track that takes her signature bright melodies and infuses them with a strong message about self identity and breaking down barriers. Check out the video below:
“There’s a lot of pressure to ‘look gay’ or ‘look straight’ – it feels like everyone expects you to take a side,” Lucy said. “That type of binary thinking inspired the song and especially the music video that I wrote for it. We have to let go of polarized thinking. You can be feminist and also be feminine, you can be queer and still be ‘girly.’ There are so many wonderful identities encompassed on the wide spectrum of gender and sexuality that I find it ridiculous and extremely burdensome to expect individuals to fall into one of two categories.”
The catchy and sassy track’s got a dance-able beat with breakdowns full of luscious harmonies and empowering lyrics featuring Bugsy. Lucy’s a “Rebel Babe” and she’s using her right to misbehave and you should too!
Lucy’s full band project has hosted fundraising concerts for LA’s LGBT Center (the “Love is Gay” event) and shocked their crowd at Lucy’s Locks of Love benefit when Lucy cut 15-inches of her hair off on stage to be donated to the cause. The band has also performed at LA Fashion Week, The Rose Bowl, CMJ Music Marathon, Echo Park Rising, KCRW’s Chinatown Summer Nights, Jam in the Van, BalconyTV, and also performed for the Mayor of LA.
Portland native duo When We Met released their psychedelic new music video for their latest single “Ride the Tide” off the recently released album “Where Did They Come From.” Check out the video here:
The video was created by cartoonist Magnificent Kaaboom, who brought to life the song’s ocean-themed lyrics with visuals that showcase a unique art style complete with retro animation. Right from the get-go, the video literally grabs you in as a hand pops out from a book and drags the viewer into a wacky world full of surfing cavemen and globetrotting aliens. The duo is backed on this occasion by a robot drummer, which somehow brings it all together. If you’re looking for a dream world to escape to with a new wave, indie rock soundtrack, look no further than When We Met’s latest video “Ride the Tide.”
French surf-noir band La Femme released a zany new music video for “Exorciseur” from their 2016 full-length, “Mystère.” Check out the video below:
The video was directed by La Femme and features the band on the road complete with costumes, razor blades, and trippy filters that match the funky bassline and haunting synths. La Femme released their new album “Mystère” worldwide which, continued to leave a huge mark on modern Paris’s cultural landscape, with the two sides of the city – the glamour and the grit – engrained in their music. Returning to a more psychedelic sound and a range of guest vocalists that slice through the starkest of electro beats, “Mystère” sees the French pop connoisseurs celebrating all that’s wonderful about their city.
“Mystère” reached the second place in the French digital charts, 8th place in the overall French charts, and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the French Music Awards 2017. Ever since the release of their debut album “Psycho Tropical Berlin,” that topped the French digital charts and saw the band appear on national television as the Best New Band of the year at the French Music Awards, La Femme’s rise has only gained momentum with fans.
