Band To Buzz About Fall '14: Night Lights

Tina Oct 24, 2014

Night Lights are a Boston five-piece, with members hailing from Mexico, Norway, Japan, Texas and California, that specialize in eclectic indiepop/rock and good feels. They just released their debut EP, Here We Come, this summer and the video for lead single, "Make Me Smile," had me grinning pretty fiercely myself. Fans of The 1975, Walk The Moon and Two Door Cinema Club are going to eat these guys up.

Check out the video for "Make Me Smile" below:

Artist To Buzz About Fall '14: Zella Day

Tina Oct 23, 2014

If you happened to download the current Single of the Week on iTunes, you might already be obsessed with Zella Day. Called the "happier Lana Del Rey," this Arizona native, who now resides in Los Angeles, incorporates her simplistic roots and blends them with the eclectic sounds of the West Coast to form a new pop sound that would indeed make Del Rey question her brooding. Her self-titled debut EP is only a taste of what's to come.

Discover New Music with Feature.fm!

Tina Oct 21, 2014

Are you tired of being rudely interrupted with boring ads while streaming music? One minute, you're in your room enjoying the glorious sounds of your favorite band, anticipating the next track, when all of a sudden, a fast food restaurant is trying to sell you the new McNonsense or a really annoying ad for a new horror movie scares the living daylights out of you. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem that benefits not only music lovers, but the artist as well!

Feature.fm is the first native song advertising network that allows you to preview new music from up-and coming artists in between your personally curated mixes. In partner with 8tracks, Feature.fm is an authentic direct-to-fan discovery experience. If you like what you hear, you can even add those songs to your playlists, hence increasing the artist's exposure. Pretty cool, huh?

Artists, labels, and music promoters get to be in on the deal too, ensuring that their music is heard between a catalog of 8tracks' 2 million user-curated mixes. Basically, if you're thirsty for new music, this is the place to be!

But wait...there's more!

Each sponsored stream includes all the goodies you'll need once you fall in love with a new artist including photos, a short bio, links to social media and recommended content from music blogs (hey, *wink* over here!). As for the artists, they'll get in depth, real-time analytics designed specifically to analyze music and track the song's progress. Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?

On the mission of Feature.fm, Head of Business Development & Marketing, Daniel Sander, stated:

"We believe that it is difficult for up-and-coming artists to get their songs heard and traditional digital advertising methods are ineffective, expensive, and have no guarantee that the music actually gets listened to. This partnership allows artists to have a fair shot that guarantees their songs are heard and lets their music act as its own advertisement."

As a big supporter of up-and-coming talent, I couldn't be more thrilled about this! Need a simpler rundown? Watch the promo video below:

Ready to get started? Go to Feature.fm to sign up and use the code buzznet to get $10 (around 150 free plays) to help boost your songs!

Happy listening!

BUZZNET EXCLUSIVE: Listen to LAYNE's New Single, 'Warrior'

Tina Oct 20, 2014

Indie/pop artist, LAYNE, is ready to take the world by storm with her "agropop" sound and Hayley Williams-esqe vocals.

Hailing from Rapid City, SD via Los Angeles, teen singer/songwriter Layne Putnam has a clear vision of what she wants to deliver on her forthcoming EP, Warrior. Her goal was to write the type of songs that have inspired her through her life. "It's always amazed me that a song written by someone after intense heartbreak or loss can change the life of someone else. It is somewhere I can always go to not feel alone, and I want others to meet me there."

Check out "Warrior" below:

 Warrior will be available on January 2, 2015.



WATCH: Tiny Stills Premiere Puppet-Friendly '15-17 Months' Video

Tina Oct 17, 2014

You might remember Tiny Stills from their From The Indie Vault feature this past summer. The band just released an adorable new video for the song "15-17 Months" featuring puppets as singer Kailynn West's backup band and love interest. More bands need to hop on the puppet bandwagon these days. Watching that little guy shove Froot Loops in his mouth was highly amusing. This dancey indie/pop gem is taken from their debut album, Fear Is Like Flying, out now.

Check out "15-17 Months" below:

Fear Is Like Flying is available now HERE.


WATCH: Melanie Martinez Premieres Creepy 'Carousel' Video!

Tina Oct 16, 2014

If you found yourself wondering who sang that catchy yet haunting song from the American Horror Story: Freak Show promos, look no further.

Melanie Martinez first dazzled us with her unique voice and bashful stage presence on NBC's third season of The Voice where she dominated on Team Adam. Now, the singer is showing the world what she's made of with her debut Dollhouse EP.

Featured as one of our Artists To Buzz About this past spring, Martinez shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. She just premiered her video for the eerily-pleasing, "Carousel." The song, produced and co-written by Kinetics and One Love, fits in perfectly with the Halloween season.

Check out the video for "Carousel" below:

Dollhouse is available now HERE.
