Jane N’ The Jungle – “Wasteland”

Country: US

Genre: Rock 

Words From the Artist: Wasteland is about being stuck in toxic relationships where you feel there is no way out. It draws you into an atmosphere of unrest with instrumentation filled with rage and passion as the vocals stir and explode with tension that demands attention. “Wasteland” is like the pit in your stomach you get when you know something is wrong and instead of leaving the situation you stay and it gets worse, and it becomes all you know.” – Jordan White

Gunner Lee – “Jumble Jumble”

Country: US

Genre: Skate Punk

Words From the Artist: High energy rock song with complex lyricism over an energetic drum driven song. Punk guitars, lyrics reminiscent of Jack White and funk drum breaks.

Jake Huffman – “Body Talk”

Country: US

Genre: Pop Rock

Words From the Artist: Huffman’s new EP, Younger, is an outstanding showcase of his musical abilities and artistry. The four-track release is both wholesome and catchy, prevailing in all areas, from its insanely infectious melodies and clever lyricism, to the intricate instrumentation. Bringing the EP to a close is “Bodytalk,” sonically taking the limelight for its unique musical palette that has been described as “if the Bee Gees were running from a Scooby doo swamp monster.” The song tows the line between rock, pop and funk. Huffman shares, “The main monster wubby subby sound is actually a cello that I manipulated with a few different filters and ran through the Soundtoys decapitator. I’ve been writing and working on these songs for a few years now and this is the one I find myself listening to the most. It also SLAAAPS live!”

Velour Fog – “Black Babylon”

Country: UK

Genre: Rock

Words From the Artist: Hard rock/metal with mystical vibes and shredding guitar

Hear Me Out – “Meaning Less”

Country: Germany

Genre: Post-Punk

Words From the Artist: Meaningless is the new song by a queer post-punk newcomer group. The song embodies an inner dialogue about emotional dependency, characterized by a multitude of emotions. Sadness, anger, longing. This dichotomy is made clear by splitting into a calm, melancholic verse with a catchy bass riff and an energetic chorus. Followed by a short climactic guitar solo. With this, the song puts listeners on an emotional roller coaster.

Rachel Mintz – “Past Go”

Country: US

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: On the second single of her album cycle, Rachel Mintz returns with the hook-packed track “Past Go” that’s layered in sonic lushness and a distinctly emotive vocal performance that’s both her own and of the moment. Co-produced by Rachel and Grammy winner Ian Cross (Gwen Stefani, Usher), she’s continuing to build on the momentum of her first single “Zoe” and her recent releases that have garnered her a fervent following on social media and coverage on prominent blogs. She’s had two iTunes top 100 tracks since her debut, with more music that shows her indelible artistic qualities out this year!

Alex Exists – “With a Bang”

Country: Canada

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: “With A Bang,” sounds like a spaghetti western meets spy film theme song about two ex-lovers who are out for revenge – a neo-western, disco twang romp, if you will. It explores the feeling of short and cataclysmic quick burn relationships – those of which are doomed from the start, and celebrates them as spontaneous, messy, fun and chaotic. It’s an irreverent dance song about celebrating the end of something in a flamboyant and over-the-top way. All throughout, the deep clear twang of a baritone guitar rings through.

Red Kate – “Shut It Down”

Country: US

Genre: Garage Rock

Words From the Artist: “Shut It Down” is the debut single off Red Kate’s upcoming third studio album, Exit Strategy, due out in the Fall of 2023 on Kansas City record label cooperative Black Site. The song is a blistering, no holds barred call to action for the oppressed, marginalized and working class everywhere to use the only power we have. When push comes to shove – you gotta SHUT! IT! DOWN!

Jovi Skyler – “If You Think So”

Country: Australia

Genre: Alt Rock

Words From the Artist: ““If You Think So” is a Beatlesque inspired song that explores the toxicity of falling into friendships that do more harm than good.”

Alice Elena – “Abandoned Chain”

Country: Switzerland

Genre: Folk

Words From the Artist: Abandoned Chain represents a liberating song. Liberating from conditions holding you back. In this song I want to bring my inner fire and positive energy to the listeners and the feeling of being understood while facing challenging situations or even facing your inner self
