ARTIST: Monsters In Your Headlights
TRACK: Call It Home
The most recent single by the collaborative project of musicians from United Kingdom and Russia Monsters In Your Headlights, is an authoritative post grunge/emo alternative rock treat, about the story of a man who must fly to Mars… Great stuff!
ARTIST: Clean Dirty Clean
Morgantown based 4-piece outfit Clean Dirty Clean’s ‘Featherdusta’, brings back the good, old 90s vibes with catchy melody and great guitar work, and according to its genitors this is a song “about the dichotomies that often strain personal relationships – intimacy vs detachment, understanding vs confusion, sincerity vs disingenuousness, reverence vs ridicule”.
ARTIST: The Appalachians
Milwaukee alternative rock quartet recently returned with their first track in 7 years, after their Frontman’s battle with cancer, gifting us with one of the most powerful alternative rock bangers of 2021, with a chorus that will conquer your soul from the initial experience… Top-class alternative rock with pop sensitivity and a larger than life vocal performance!
ARTIST: Ms. america
TRACK: Panic Overload
Ms. america’s ‘Panic Overload’ is grunge-y alternative rock the way we adore it! Powerful vocals, addictive guitar work and catchy chorus, unleashing 90s vibes and energetic enough to start jumping up and down! 100% adorable stuff from four Hillsdale dudes that still know how to party in the post-COVID era!
Dublin based Kandemic recently stroke back with their upbeat, ultra melodic alternative rock treat ‘Hangover’, a song dealing with self destructive behaviour… Flawless, and super catchy!
ARTIST: Stone Turner
TRACK: Over The Edge
‘Over The Edge’ is the more than promising debut single by American alternative rock outfit, Stone Turner, a track full of rock n’ roll attitude, industrial rock finishing touches, fuzzed out guitars and a lot of groove!
TRACK: Love in Seven Countries
A fine, straight-forward, guitar-driven alternative rock track by American outfit Humbiego will offer you 146 seconds of alternative rock bliss… Or perhaps many more if played on repeat!
