Blackbook praised the video, saying it “is a pastiche of sensual but thought-provoking images, surely begging to be analyzed for historical artistic references,” and that the song “grooves along with impossibly cool aplomb (shades of early Bananarama).”

"Rabbit Hole" was the first track that we happily released in late 2018. The song is uniquely spirited- at once, urgent and ethereal- a perfect musical articulation of a personal fall and rise. Consistent with Mindy’s own struggles, “Rabbit Hole” is dynamically and intimately voiced with the sort of passion, eloquence and wisdom only harnessed by someone who’s been in and out of an existential journey- a baptism by fire, a battle to claim one’s true self.
"Weeknight is a dark-synth [band] out of New York City that play music that's brooding, sensual, and infectious... The [band] manages to extract the elements of 80s goth and new-wave, and re-appropriate them in a context that isn't reliant on nostalgia." -Noisey

If you only listen to one steam punk-influenced professional hypnotherapist and singer-songwriter in 2019, make it Elyssa Vulpes! Having cured her own anxieties (including stage fright) through a combination of her day job as a hypnotherapist and through writing and performing music, she hopes to inspire others to release their “scorpion energy” – confronting their fears by essentially shedding this negative skin from themselves.
"To Love is a visual journey exploring gaze and seeking balance between all of its contradictions. The film objectifies female cliches in order to question their validity with playfulness and sarcasm. To Love intends to create refreshing and powerful narratives within societal normalizations of femininity. For Esmé epitomizes the reclaiming of the gaze, and the video illustrates Mar Meredith’s evolution from object of male desire to principal subject of her own narrative.”
"Ashworth's style has always been prismatic, slipping through time and space to craft enduring and dreamlike portraits, this time of loves lived and lost."
"Charmingly homespun downer-pop."
"Ashworth's songs never cease to be entertaining and authentic."
"Bizarrely heartwarming...full of bleakly romantic imagery"

"The New York-based polymath's new release is an essential listen."
"Incoming EP 'Talk Talk' is their boldest step yet, matching astute songwriting to daring sonic flourishes, recalling everyone from Sharon van Etten to LCD Soundsystem in the process."
"Sohn's clear vocal drives deceptively gentle synth-backed ditties into surges of heavier guitars reminiscent of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs."
- Line Of Best Fit
"Sohn’s quiet-storm vox against cataclysmic synthesizers creates a soundscape that is both emotionally raw and dynamically energizing, a perfect blend of introspection and catharsis."
- The Deli NYC
"Miss Grit is a thrilling new project that takes its cues from a bevy of indie heavy-hitters and turns it all into something all the more exciting. On her new single 'Talk Talk,' which also happens to be the title track of her upcoming debut EP, Sohn keys into both a sound and state of mind that will make her one to watch in the new year."
- The 405
"A Fragile Tomorrow have built a reputation around power-pop anthems."
- CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
"Everyone needs to know this band...and I mean EVERYONE."
"One of South Carolina's leading indie lights, period."
"Scruffy, scratchy indie rock with a dash of psychedelic sweetener"
- ODD NUGGET
"Fuzzy guitars, groovy bass lines and grungy yet ethereal vocal harmonies"
"I love the deep textures and 'other-worldly' spaces - made from guitar loops and percussion treatments. Evi's vocals are beautiful. Haunting. Sailing across this huge 'universe'. I think it is very original" – Phill Brown, audio engineer (Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Robert Plant, Throwing Muses)
A selection of tracks from upcoming releases due in this glorious year of 2019. Most releases will also feature a limited run on fancy colour vinyl. For more deets, watch this space, or hop on our mailing list to hear about it before we unleash to the gen pub!
An upbeat song in minor key, it has hints to bands like Depeche Mode, Nirvana and Billy Talent. The result is a catchy song with good energy and cool electronic vibes.
I sincerely appreciate your consideration. Thank you so much for your continued support.

Enabled by Durand’s butter-smooth production and Penicault & Cottin’s androgynous vocals (sung by the two Anglophiles in English throughout), ‘Night Sketches’ finds Papooz distilling these unlikely antecedents into distinctly skewed exotic pop, leavened with surreal, character-driven lyricism.
‘Good Morning Simulation’ is both electric and melancholic, fusing kaleidoscopic soundscapes, hazy beats and Osquello’s incisive rapping. It is a universal record, aiming to reach out to as many people as possible, letting them know that they are not alone in this distorted reality we find ourselves in 2019.

"A unique combination of slow harmony and sonic dissonance... a blend pleasing to the ears and compelling to the heart. ‘Face Off’ is both a lack of banality and a slow burn into the senses that slowly boils over with the confidence of musical experience like a poet unconsciously building to the stanza. Brilliant" – Jammerzine
if i am too weary put me aside
the years break their silence written in salt
forgotten in spaces left at high mark
but dutybound vigil saves hope that survives
and carries it willingly on the white tide

a hangover-single in the purest form, which doesn’t try to cover up the tragedies, but makes them a little bit easier to overcome. With the song comes an animated video, which dresses the grey suburbs of Rotterdam, The Netherlands with happy pencil-animations, which include Darth Vader, Tarzan and The Mummy.
“Stranger - a track in the sonic territory of alt-pop with a cornucopia of electronic sounds added to the mix. With a frenzy yet jazzy bassline alongside sensual guitars, ‘Stranger’ is thrust to a fresh soundscape. Fueled by John Evans’ bracing yet sultry vocals, 80s-inspired synths, and vivacious dance beats, ‘Stranger’ lives and breathes on a dance floor near you.” - The 405

The former frontwoman of Keep Shelly in Athens,
who collaborated with numerous artists such as
Mmoths, Sun Glitters, Plastic Flowers, and The
New Division, does not shy away from revisiting the
past as she uses music, aided by magnificent, selfdirected
visuals, to divulge her endless
accomplishments: be it her openness about mental
health and the creation of her monthly zine
EraseRestart aimed to wipe out the stigma that
surrounds it, to the lobbying for the protection of
artists’ rights as an active member of IAO
(International Artist Organisation).
