Saint Slumber Released an Off-Beat, Alt Pop New Single, “freak!” ft. 100+ of Their Fans

Saint Slumber has always been in a category of their own. They have a special blend of alternative rock and dark, electronic pop that I have never heard anywhere else. They're always doing something new that surprises me and this new single, "freak!", is no different. Blending over 100 fan voices into a choir for the track, Saint Slumber's latest release is more than a song: it's a force to be reckoned with. Check it out on Spotify below-- https://open.spotify.com/track/5oAnYRa5iZUjKG9wK0QIE5?si=Dppo0HlvSDaVufB36agPlw&utm_source=copy-link&dl_branch=1 In short, "freak!" is an offbeat anthem of total self-acceptance and is a welcome sight to see in my Spotify library. It came two long months after "never / nowhere", the last Saint Slumber single. "I don't know w...

ICYMI: Alt Rock Band THE HARA Dropped a Cinematic New Single, “The Fool & The Thief”

THE HARA has a new single out and it is definitely one of my favorite August rock releases. Emotionally-charged, high energy, and perfect for screaming along to--"The Fool & The Thief" is everything I love about rock music. Check it out on Youtube below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-zOCetYwUk Released on August 20th through Scruff of the Neck Records, "The Fool & The Thief" is somehow both contemplative and a call to action. It is perfectly cinematic in that way. The song builds on itself organically, layering in beautifully-blended instrumentals and powerfully-delivered vocals throughout. By the end of my first listen, I was awed by the sheer power and beauty of it. Clearly, I had to listen again... and again... and then send it to everyone I know. Before...

HeIsTheArtist Drops New Single ‘Virgin’

HeIsTheArtist has a new powerful single, "Virgin" out now. The new song from the American Christian singer-songwriter from Central Islip, NY., expands the topic of temptation that was previously the center topic of his single, "The Snake Charmer" and his EP Adam & Eve. HeIsTheArtist says, 'Virgin' delves into the experience of a Catholic Nun taking a vow of abstinence and how difficult that is while living in a society where the temptation of sex is everywhere. The lyrics “It's you I like, it’s not me” references the promise that nuns make to rid themselves of all vanity in order to be able to focus fully on God’s work." HeIsTheArtist is influenced by the music of Kim Burrell, Carrie Underwood, Prince, and Michael Jackson. He considers himself an eclectic artist who merges diffe...
