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!
A tale of a bad experience in bed highlights the narrative of the new single “Freak” by Los Angeles rock band The Fontaines. The song is filled with sultry vocals, groovy rhythms and a down-tempo beat all layered nicely with top notch production values. Check out the song here:
The Fontaines started with Charlotte Fontaine (vocals) and Hank Fontaine (guitar) writing songs together in 2014, until they were joined by Chrystian Kaplan (drums) and Daniel Zuker (bass) and became a full four piece. Charlotte is reclaiming sexist connotations and letting everyone know that it’s okay to be labeled a freak. After tiring out from uncomfortable encounters who shamed her, Charlotte decided to take the mantle of “freak” and run with it, making it acceptable for others too to indulge in their inner freak.
The band has been on a roll lately. In 2017, The Fontaines dropped the debut single “Evaporate,” which received airplay on commercial and satellite radio, and garnered thousands of online streams. This success caught on in Los Angeles, where The Fontaines headlined a sold-out performance at The Troubadour in support of their dual EP releases, “Playgirls” and “Playboys.”
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.”
Canadian/British electro-rock outfit Radio Wolf will release its highly anticipated debut four-track EP “Rock ‘N’ Roll Forever” on Oct. 31. Check out the video for the track “Song on the Radio” here:
Radio Wolf is the creation of songwriter, musician and producer Oliver Blair. His original electronic rock outfit, Kindle, transformed his music into a visual experience complete with cyberpunk burlesque dancers. After building a name for himself by touring and collaborating with UK artists including Ladytron, Sohodolls, Client, Hotel Motel and Kelli Ali, as well as performing at the legendary Notting Hill Arts Club, electro-pop band Client quickly signed him to their independent record label, Loser Friendly. His all-instrumental first album was then released, simply titled “Kindle.”
As Radio Wolf, Oliver has written and produced retro-future rock songs with guest vocalists as collaborators, Marika Gauci (Hotel Motel), Sarah Blackwood (Client/Dubstar), Kelli Ali (Sneaker Pimps) and Holly Dodson (Parallels). The sound is a unique fusion of electronic music and rock ’n’ roll, with a distinct retro-futuristic edge. The songs are crafted with lyrical and melodic power, combining uncanny rock guitar hooks, lush electronics, and distinctive vocal delivery.
