Instant Empire is a rock group from Denver that formed nearly eight years ago. Since then, they have released three EPs and a couple LPs, the most recent of which – 'Last of the Lovers' – will be released this August. The five-piece crafted the album with a concept centering around “the relentless march of time … consumed with finding grace and beauty in life’s tiny moments.”

The band's sophomore album is a beautiful listen, with a fairly dark theme complemented by bright and wonderfully contagious melodies. One of many highlights off the release is “Slow to Reveal”, a track with multiple vocal layers rising in intensity over shimmering guitars and an ’80s-tinged polish. The hook that features the lyrics “whispers and sideways glances” is full of intensity and supremely melodic songwriting, a great demonstration of the band’s talents.

“The initial spark for this song came after spending one too many days in Vegas, and all the heat, booze, gluttony and sickness that comes with that town,” vocalist and lyricist Scotty Saunders explains. “But the song eventually took on a larger rumination on how easily we let addiction and darkness into our lives. Depending on the situations you put yourself into, or the people you surround yourself with … evil can sometimes feel tangible. ‘Slow to Reveal’ explores that idea a bit.”

New single "Into Sun" by Low Sun

2017-06-28 06:16:13 UTC

New

Low Sun just released their  first single, “Into Sun”. The track comes ahead of a split they are a part of called Human Sun with  Toronto band HUMANITIES - out July 13, 2017.

"Lyrically on “Into Sun” we wanted to experiment with how we could dissect and ultimately expand on the seemingly mundane experiences people tend to let pass them by. Mostly, we were curious as to what separates an everyday, or random observation, with one that is powerfully religious in its essence. Sometimes we are unaware that attention and perception are the only things that separate the two."

The Human Sun split contains their  first two songs which serve as an intro to their band. Their contributions to the release are also pieces of their  upcoming full length which they  plan to release this fall.



Genre : punk, meditative, post-hardcore

New track Tanlines by KNIFEY

2017-03-29 19:30:12 UTC

New

KNIFEY's latest song’s essence is certainly fantasy material for blurry late night trips on decrepit streetcars. Their  glorious surf-punk anthem 'Tanlines' will be on their upcoming LP, out this Fall. The  LP is a wash of reverb, the nostalgic longing for the ideal California lifestyle and the often dour reality of urban life are blended into a mélange of surf riff-driven chord progressions.



Genre : alternative, punk, surf, rock
