"Stay" a song from King Park speaks about the heartbreak of losing a loved one. This song was originally inspired by Murphy from Interstellar when her Father is on the other side of the galaxy. The chorus in the song “I watch our clocks move further away, I asked you to stay” alludes to the conversation between Murphy and her father before he leaves.
"We are proud of the songs ability to capture aspects of the movie while maintaining the much more real emotion of loss. I think that the movie itself does an excellent job of this - being such a grandiose film while hitting people on a very raw and personal level, we like to think our song does the same thing."
"Stay" is off their upcoming album ‘The Light I Can’t See.
Based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Nick Anderson has a voice that takes you into the deepest parts of yourself. At the age of 17, he was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder that leads to depression. As he sat in his basement lost in the darkness of his own mind, a song came on the radio that made him feel like he wasn’t alone. This moment, along with the tools he discovered to manage his mind, solidified a career in music.
As a mental health advocate, and an honest writer, Nick Anderson plays reflective music that digs deep into the emotion of the millennial dreamer, pursuing a style that blends alternative, folk, and power-pop with deep lyrical introspection. His influence is drawn from the likes of John Mayer and James Bay.
His newest release, EPHREM I & II, is a six-track release that puts Anderson's lyrical and songwriting talents on display, backed by his band The Skinny Lovers. Nick wrote the release in an apartment in the basement of an old tire factory called Banbury Place that had a good price. It had one single window peering just above the sidewalk outside. It went on to receive a great response on radio, charting number 1, 12, and 18 in Florida, 8 in Massachusetts, and 24 in Iowa.
Nick has opened for Cartel, The Summer Set, This Providence, and The Millenium, as well as toured the Midwest with platinum selling rock band Saving Abel (Addicted, 18 Days). He has also secured sponsorships with Reverend Guitars and Dean Markley Strings, in addition to working with mastering engineers Emily Lazar and Randy Merrill (Foo Fighters, Beyonce, Adele, Bieber).
The single"CU Again" is the title track on Adrian Underhill's album that was produced by Kindness (Solange, Robyn, Blood Orange). The 10 songs on ‘CU Again’ are the culmination of many years of sonic exploration. Having grown up in Vancouver before moving to Montreal and then Toronto, Adrian spent time in rock bands and making lo-fi recordings on his own, before moving towards a 70s songwriter vibe infused with a more modern production style & sound. The LP is set to be released later this year.
Adrian's thoughts on the song:
"One thing I really like about this song is that it is left open ended who the song is being sung for. It’s about the universal feeling of missing someone and that could be a platonic or romantic relationship. To me, the song invites you as the listener to also become the singer of the song, the protagonist, to sing along if you have ever felt the feeling of missing somebody that means a lot to you."
The smouldering talent that is Leaone continues his rise with a new track ‘Livewire’ taken from his sublime EP ‘Wild Horse Ride On’, released through Fierce Panda this October 13th.
Leaone’s sweetly sobering and sombre tracks have already seen him compared to The National and described as the missing link between Leonard Cohen and Lana Del Ray. While, on his debut ‘Oh, My Sweetest Sin’, released this summer, Leaone found himself winning support from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio1 and the local BBC Introducing teams in Norfolk and Suffolk, as well as performing in support of Emmy The Great and Roddy Womble.
With his second EP ‘Wild Horse Ride On’ to follow this October, the troubadour has gathered another glittering collection of tracks for the release which have already won him fans including Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins on BBC 6Music.
With his new release supported by the Arts Council England, Leaone just keeps giving us a reason to come back, and the excellent ‘Livewire’ - produced by Pete Jarrett (who has written for Betsy and Lao Ra) - sets the perfect marker for the new release.
In the words of Leaone “the song is ultimately an apology for my sometimes fiery temper and a confession of my on-going love” and also features the Brisbane-based artist Leo Altarelli on trumpet.
‘Wild Horse Ride On’ is released on October 13th 2017 through Fierce Panda. Leaone’s first EP ‘Oh, My Sweetest Sin’ is out now.

Steven K. Smith has more than 20 recording to his name both solo and collaboratively. He was the founding member of the post rock outfit MABOU from Cleveland, Ohio. His also worked with Jason Sloan in the acclaimed dark ambient project DOLMEN. In addition to A Signal In The Static he is a member of SPIRICOM with Columbus, Ohio guitarist Marc Cody. Smith lives outside of Kent, Ohio on a farm with his wife and a menagerie of animals.
A Signal In The Static is a sonic flood whose immense current blurs the line between cleansing and obliterating. The unrelenting, multi-textured wash of synthesizers and heavily processed guitars is propelled by expansive, driving bass and percussion that is equal parts primal and mechanical. Throughout its massive presence, A Future Remembered swells with layers of melody that penetrate its dense landscape and supply a constant tidal force. As the galactic waves surge and dissolve, they purge the earthly terrain in their wake.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
