It’s been a little over two years since we covered fresh new tunes from Santa Monica-based Opus Orange, which leaves us with this question: what the hell were we doing since then? This band has churned out some great music during our lapse, and somehow we missed the boat. Luckily, we found our orange colored glasses and are currently rocking them as we write this post.
“Anatomic” is the title track from this ever-evolving group, which can include one or more of the following at any given point: Lauren Hillman, Bernard Chadwick, James Neil, Piper Denney, Carlen Walth, Katie Hampton, Jo Pusateri, Rachel Chadwick, and Paul Bessenbacher. You can expect a healthy dosage of head-nodding goodness from today’s premiere, provided by the combination of driving percussion and a big, buzzing bassline. Accompanying those are some reverberating synths, frenetic guitar riffs, and delightfully distressed vocals which all come together in an extremely memorable experience.
If you’re one of our ninjas in SoCal, head out to their free EP release show tonight in Pasadena! You can find all the necessary details here.
Lights (feat. Whitney Phillips)
Bobby Green is back with another magical original, this time featuring vocalist Whitney Phillips. Their work together on “Lights” resulted in a bright indie-dance single that has a strong tropical vale held over it. People have quickly fallen in love with this track, as we have. There’s just something pure and liberating about the composition with its bashfully exuberant melodies. “Lights” has potential to be played out hard on the radio, as it is one of those records that both lovers of electronic music and pop enthusiasts can get behind.
Hypem has been friendly to Bobby, as he has had a few charting songs. Don’t be surprised if you see “Lights” climb to the top. Besides it being a solid record, the message behind it is one that everyone can get behind. Bobby describes it as “about the disconnection we all feel, and about the great things that can happen when we open up and show the world who we are.” Robbins Entertainment released this track for purchase, so iTunes has you covered if you want a copy.
There’s something special about Kid Froopy. The music is touching, down-to-Earth and full of emotion. Kid Froopy’s expressions are extremely easy to connect to. Take for instance the newest track, “FADED,” a straightforward indie dance record that will pull on your feels and have you thinking back with a great sense of nostalgia. “FADED” is one of those slow grooving records that you take with you when you just need to get away, whether it’s popping it in your ear buds, taking a walk or taking a drive somewhere. Kid Froopy captured so much in this minimalist masterpiece, that we had no choice but to premiere it to our readers. With the weather keeping people inside, this is the perfect song to get you through the day. You’ll be happy to know that this was released as a free download, without a gate, so you can directly get it without any extra clicks. Do so through our media player!
It might be time to chalk up Belfast as one of the world’s most notable cities for budding young talent, after seeing acts like Two Door Cinema Club, General Fiasco, Pleasure Beach, and now, Beauty Sleep delight indie rock lovers around the globe.
This is undoubtedly the first you’re hearing about members Ryan McGroarty, Cheylene Murphy and Aimee Williamson, as “The Dark” is their debut single. Born out of a local house party, these three young musicians bonded over a classic party prank of using alphabet refrigerator magnets for vulgar amusement. From there, the band was born, and they headed to the studio to define their sound, which is what you’re witnessing today.
“The Dark” glows with radiating beauty, led by a luscious bassline, clean guitar riffs, and gorgeous alternating male and female vocals. Most notably, all three voices come together in heavenly harmonies, adding to beautifully constructed crescendos. Impressively enough, this tune is completely self-produced, which should give way to more incredible tunes very soon. In the meantime, you can officially pick this one up as of February 19th.
If you’d like to be a part of their coming out party, we highly recommend catching them on February 26th, at Bar Sub in Belfast.
When it comes to an artist such as Jelani Blackman, you never know what you’re going to get. Hearing “Submarine” for the first time is jarring. It’s a wake-up call. No pun intended, but it explores the depths of Jelani’s voice and molds together nicely with the chronically intoxicating production surrounding his commanding presence.
His three releases are spread out over the last year, from the soft and sensual Twenty//Three to the boom bap inspired Repeater, and they each take on a life of their own, with “Submarine” striking a comfortable balance of elements between these previous two songs. The grit that Jelani Blackman portrays is magnetic. It’s most apparently in each tune’s construction and production, but the London native clearly is no stranger to illustrating his feelings through his lyrics as well. More exploration is certainly warranted, and the intrigue isn’t going away. Don’t miss out.
