EXCLUSIVE: Shochan Premieres "Girls Say" Music Video

Tina
Tina Feb 27, 2015

Acoustic/soul up-and-comer Shochan has a lot to say in the span of his 3 minute music video for "Girls Say." The Brooklyn jack-of-all-trades artist put every frustration and insecurity he's experienced in the music industry to good use, expressing his seething distaste of being put into a box to fit a phony persona.

About the track, the singer stated:

"This song is all about being unappreciated. At a certain point I felt like everyone who had a place in the industry was telling me who I have to be, so I was inspired to make this video where I was being facially curated to resemble my career plights. I wrote the song because I wanted to vent about the people who wanted to groom me for a surface level overnight success while ignoring my blood, sweat, and tears, my craft.  I also wanted to provide some affirmation for other artists who are in the same spot."

Any struggling artist can appreciate that message.

Band To Buzz About Winter '15: The Score

Tina
Tina Feb 18, 2015

Indie pop duo, The Score, comprised of Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover, left New York City for Los Angeles and haven't looked back. But with artists like this, the question isn't where they came from but rather where are they going?

Their song "Oh My Love" delivers a fresh new uptempo sound that mirros LA's sunny aesthetic with a hint of sweetness.

Check out the video "Oh My Love" below:

"Oh My Love" is available now HERE.

EXCLUSIVE: The Eiffels Premiere New Track, "I Did It Now"

Tina
Tina Feb 16, 2015

LA synthrock newcomers, The Eiffels, had me starry-eyed within my first listen of their infectiously gooey post-80's rock jam, "I Did It Now." Their debut EP is set to be released this spring with a supporting US tour beginning in April.

Artist To Buzz About Winter '15: Kiesza

Tina
Tina Feb 10, 2015

Canadian singer/songwriter, Kiesza, (pronounced kye-za) caught my attention recently with her impeccably choreographed music video for "Hideaway," which features my own stomping grounds here in Brooklyn. Right away, I was transported back to my childhood when I would listen to the radio for hours and take in all of the dance music of the early 90's. It was only a matter of time before 90's dance made a comeback and Kiesza is the queen of the resurgence.

The singer just released her debut album, Sound of a Woman, which features a healthy array of electropop, power ballads and of course, late 80's/early 90's pop. The singer even covers the 1993 Haddaway hit, "What Is Love," (A Night at The Roxbury, anyone?) turning the club hit into a seductive piano ballad. Ballad or not, I'm sure Steve and Doug Butabi would still bob their heads to it.

Check out the video for "Hideaway" below:

Sound of a Woman is available now HERE.

Song Of The Day: "Shut It Down" by KilliT

Tina
Tina Feb 09, 2015

As we get ready to say goodnight to this Monday, a little bit of rock n' roll won't kill ya. London's KilliT seem to be very content with being unsigned - and with how the music industry works lately, who would blame them? They just released their debut single and video for "Shut It Down" from their upcoming debut album, out sometime soon. Not crazy about the models (can we get a sweater for the Jessie J-looking one?) but with an old school rock edge like this, who really cares?

PREMIERE: Aaron Krause & Kelsey Kopecky Team Up for Live Version of "Jade"

Tina
Tina Feb 09, 2015

Nashville singer/songwriter Aaron Krause has teamed up with Kopecky Family Band's Kelsey Kopecky to bring you a lovely live rendition of his song, "Jade." On the song's dreamy meaning, Krause stated: "I wrote "Jade" right after I finished my record, Holding On To Love, and for me it puts the final period at the end of those 10 songs. It's a song about dreaming of this really beautiful girl you haven't met yet. The dream is so real it almost feels like a memory."

Taken from the Nashville Indie Spotlight album, "Jade" soars with flavors of pop, soul and moody sensibilities that you'll find yourself zoning out to after a rough day. Bubble bath, anyone?

Holding On To Love is available now HERE.

You Gotta Hear This: "If It Hurts" by Gallant

LA's Gallant caught my attention on this week's episode of MTV's Eye Candy with the song "If It Hurts." I was drawn to it's ethereal vocals and mixture of alternative and R&B. I guess you could call it Emo&B as the singer describes. Kind of like the beginning of blink-182's "Adam Song" mated with Banks and possibly Sam Smith? How about we just let the music speak for itself, shall we?

WATCH: Mode Moderne Share Video for "Occult Delight"

Tina Feb 05, 2015

I'm not much of a fan of house party debauchery, but being that Vancouver's Mode Moderne deliver some of the best modern new wave out there, I'll make an exception. In the band's new video for "Occult Delight," a group of partygoers donning rather creepy animal masks take part in a typical house party full of grunge and, well, stuff I really don't want to experience. Great song, nonetheless!

EZA - For fans of: Broods, Banks, Lorde

Nashville electronic/pop artist EZA (pronounced Eh-Za) is 21 year-old Ellery Bonham who writes and creates her music primarily with vocal loops and synthesizers to form some of the best ear candy you will ever savor.

Influenced by some of our favorites such as Banks, Kye Kye, Lorde and Broods, the singer manages to capture the chills-down-your-spine element of all of those artists while making it all her own.

The singer's Means of Escape EP was released this past July and is exclusively featured on this year's Nashville Indie Spotlight album with her latest single, "Headlights," available below.

Means of Escape is available now HERE.
