PREMIERE: Amy Rage's singular pop vision explodes on debut "Doin' It Right"

Jersey City songwriter and producer Amy Rage debuts her maximalist sound on new anthem “Doin’ It Right,” a dazzling showcase of synth-driven indie pop with nods to 80s femme forerunners such as Madonna and Blondie. A singular product of the artist’s existential crisis earlier this year, induced by the slog of the 9-5 and feelings of office-bound inertia, Rage turned to a small MIDI controller and a makeshift home studio to craft a vibrant sonic escape from the malaise. Hammering synthesizers and a strong emphasis on larger-the-life vocals, alongside emotional lyricism stressing how the right person can render the world’s sanity inane, propel this saturated electronic bop forward, delivering a single evocative of pop’s past and present stylings. Recommended for fans Charli XCX and Perfume Genius, stream our premiere below, and keep an eye out for Amy Rage’s forthcoming debut EP out later this year.

Dance like nobody's watching to Dream Machine's "Sarajevo"

After sitting around in your house for too long, you might crave for something to get your blood flowing. Dream Machines have a new EP out called Trust/Desire with five tracks to get you out of your quarantine-induced stasis. Jamming out at the intersection of Prince, Hall & Oates, and Queen, Dream Machines take 80s rock and mash it with the future pop sounds of today. "Sarajevo", the lead track, introduces the EP with a heartbeat drum riff to get your body pumping. Then it throws in the energetic vocals of Harry May Kline and Luke Burba, along with some soulful synths and fiery guitars to send a shockwave to your brain. Fans of Ariel Pink, Drab Majesty, and Tame Impala will want to take a listen to "Sarajevo" below. - Will Sisskind





Premiere: Necatuss "Arawn: Incongruent Goals"

We are proud to be able to premiere the latest single from the forthcoming new album, Of Myths and Fables, "Arawn: Incongruent Goals" from electronic music producer Necatuss (aka Patrick Soper). This is new project, which is set to be released later this month, is years in the making and is the result Soper's deep dive into his Irish and Celtic Roots.

Each track on this project takes its name and inspiration from a "different Pre Christianity Celtic god and its contemporary god of today". Arawn is The God of Death, War and Terror, and, according to Soper, this track is about the human price of profits which is rather pertinent in this moment of debate between human life and safety and the security of the economy.

Here is what Soper had to say about this project as whole; "My Ideal outcome would be something that is hyper layered, full of musical and art historical contexts that create this sort of archeology of a fictional past explored in it's own fictional universe and something that can also exist without these narratives on it's own, embracing a duality of Pop accessibility and artistic sensibility."





Bottler's sunny electronic blossoms on "Nobody Likes Me," new EP out 5.8

Synthpop outfit Bottler describe their sound as music “full of electronic vitamin C,” an apt description of their uplifting new track “Nobody Likes Me.” Bolstered by a chilled downtempo beat and a healthy mix of piano keys and speaker-shaking bass, the Brooklyn-based duo employ a repeating sample of a children’s choir as the song’s centerpiece, creating a joyful, bright atmosphere over its succinct three minute run time. Moreover, Bottler’s approach to production, which incorporates maximalist, shimmering synth arpeggios alongside analogue components, evokes the late 00s / early 10s indietronic sound of groups like Passion Pit and Discovery sans vocals. Stream this sunny listen below, and keep an eye out for their upcoming EP Clementine, out May 8th.
