ZADAR from Philadelphia, combine elements from gothic rock and post punk, and their latest single ‘Julie’, is an addictive, bass-driven ear-worm, that will gradually seep into your brain…For good!

Adored is an American, new-wave duo comprised of brothers Lennon and Christian Nichols, and ‘Tidal Wave’ is an absolutely, classy, new wave/synth-pop/art pop ear-candy, straight from the 80s era of “lost innocence”….

Finishing with the Texas post punk trio Swiss Banks, and their first ever single ‘RIP’, taken from their soon to be released, debut album, and ideally self-described as “Robert Smith listening to Morrissey cover Interpol. So kind of modern post-punk, with crooner vocals“. Hope you are ready for this tsunami of emotion…
