Indygo Skye – “Carry Me”

Jake Huffman – “Vampires in Hippie Clothes”

Country: US

Genre: Indie rock

Words From PR:  “Vampires In Hippie Clothes” was written following Huffman having a dream about wandering around a dusty festival campground, reminiscing about the place where he spent the majority of his teens/early twenties playing and going to music festivals. The song is deeply nostalgic and has a sticky warm energy and a hint of a reggae vibe.Huffman’s latest project is an amalgamation of his musical influences and vast heritage of experience. At the age of 14, Huffman and his band McLovins posted on YouTube a cover of Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself” from his parents basement in Connecticut. Overnight the video went viral and sparked a rabid following of fans around the world. Since then, he has shared the stage with Blink-182, Foster The People, BB King and The Flaming Lips.

Poison Door – “Satisfied”

Country: US

Genre: Post-Punk

Words From the Artist: A punchy garage rock song with sardonic lyrics about creating and consuming in the digital age. It culminates in a heavy half-time outro. Riffs and baritone vocals aplenty.

The Roadside Bandits Project – “Time Again”

Country: UK

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist:  “Originally an instrumental, I was inspired to take it further after Tommy sang a few lines over it one day. In some way it seemed to speak to me about the path we all have to navigate in life and how difficult it can be, to make those sort of decisions that can have such an effect on our personal happiness and fulfilment – for me a heartfelt message to weave into a song”.

American Ink – “Synecdoche”

Country: US

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From PR: “Synecdoche” is a perfect first glimpse into the world of American Ink. With swirling guitars, strong and shout-out-loud vocals, the track is filled with a hypnotic rhythm section that helps to set the tone for the further release.

Curves – “Laundry”

Country: Canada

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist:  It’s about when you love someone and doing mundane things is fun. And the person washes away all the bad stuff and makes you feel clean.

Back To Yours – “I Must Be Confused”

Country: US

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: I Must Be Confused deals with coming back to a place/person that was once familiar, and facing the reality that they are not the same as you remember them. The song explores feelings of fear, anger and betrayal, and the initial realization that as you change, the world does not stay the same. We are all part of the cacophony of life and time’s arrow marches on

Annie Taylor – “Schoolgirl”

Country: Switzerland

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: “Schoolgirl is a reflection on the early stages of a relationship where everything is new and exciting, but it can also make one feel extremely confused and nervous. The lyrics capture the feeling of being young and in love, not knowing where it will all lead, but being excited to find out,”

Cherry Chain – “Nightcrawler”

Country: Australia

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: “The song is about ‘situationships’ and players. It’s the tell tale of a guy, a nightcrawler, who is talking to multiple people at once. The song explores that idea, ‘I thought I knew bout them all but I don’t know nothing anymore’, thinking you know all the secrets, thinking you’re the only one. The song feels more of an uprising anthem than a heartbreak song. It’s being dragged through ‘hellfire’ but rising up through that. It’s being promised change, wishing for ‘forever’ but staying strong and walking away… because you deserve more than to be a ‘moment’!”

Arliston – “Backwards”

Genre: Indie Rock

Words From the Artist: “This one came about in an unusual way, the verse was all written down in one sitting before the music came along. That’s pretty rare for me, more often it’s a painstaking process of gradual improvement. So the verse and melody sort of burst straight out, and then I remember literally a whole day of (unsuccessfully) trying chorus ideas. I loved the verse, but things were looking pretty bleak and we were talking of putting it on the maybe pile, when finally in the last 10mins of the session the now chorus emerged- I’ve never been so relieved!”
