Leif Erikson

Premiere: Leif Erikson - “Never Get You Out Of My Mind” Video

Jun 28, 2016

Today, we're pleased to bring you the video for "Never Get You Out Of My Mind," the latest from upstart London band Leif Erikson. The track itself manages to be both luminous and melancholic, driven by the same kind of emotional intensity that powered ‘80s teen flicks yet counterbalanced by a hint of stately reserve. Below, you can watch the big-hearted clip, which is perfectly in keeping with the song's sweeping, bittersweet nature.

Ranch Ghost

“Bleu” MP3 Stream

Jun 27, 2016

Nashville rock and roll band Ranch Ghost has shared "Bleu," a stomping song that explores the space between sleezy garage rock and swampy American roots music. Listen below, and check out our premiere of the prior single "Ragged Mile." Both tracks were taken the upcoming LP Lookin, due out July 1 on Rough Beast.


“To Go Away” MP3 Stream

Jun 24, 2016

Cerise has shared "To Go Away," a hazy, shoegaze-dusted track from her debut album Smoke Screen Dreams, which is out today. Listen below, and check out our premiere for her prior single "Shades in Shade."


Premiere: “First Time” Video

Jun 23, 2016

Next month, PNKSLM will release Radius, the debut EP from Swedish quartet Hater. For now, you can satiate yourself with the perfectly compact and melancholic single "First Time." While the interweave of gorgeously melodic bass playing and guitar jangle work to create a serene atmosphere, the track's hoarse, husky vocal take (sounding as if it were recorded just after a fierce lover's quarrel) pierces through the blanket of reverb with a startling urgency. Head below to check out our premiere of the video for "First Time."

Jun 22, 2016

Premiere: PINS: “I’ll Get Mine” Video

Jun 21, 2016

Back on Record Store Day, Manchester's PINS released the 10-inch single "Trouble." Today, we're premiering a video for the B-side "I'll Get Mine" and sharing a remix of "Trouble."

With a swaggering bassline and prowling melody, "I'll Get Mine" exudes an atmosphere of pleasurable goth monochrome; the lyrics, which nod to the "Venus in Furs" school of bleak sensuality, are rendered all the more sinister by the song's aura of cool detachment. Directly inspired by Warhol screen tests, the accompanying video has a suitably gritty menace.

Head below to watch the clip and check out the remix of "Trouble," which was handled by Bernard + Edith.
