Visualis: Sydney Melodic Metal Act Release Video For New Single Doom Arise
Bassist Zoran says about Doom Arise: “Doom Arise is featured on our debut EP “Sunrise in Black”. It has a lyrical theme focusing on human self destruction, propensity to cause harm to others and the eventual impending doom if we continue behaving along this route. The song is predominantly in five count and very enjoyable to play as a band including parts where we do a call and response with each other and the solo section starting with Roman on keys followed by Johnny’s guitar.”

[PRESS] Listen to the new Living Room album
It’s time to kick off the weekend with a brilliant new album from Brooklyn post-rockers Living Room. New Years is everything that you’d expect from a group of friends that have been making music together for a decade. These are musicians that are comfortable with each other and work together to bring a precision to their songwriting that not all bands have. Taking elements of emo, shoegaze, and post-punk, Living Room have crafted an album that builds on the sound from their discography but focuses even more on the hooks. Stand-out singles “Petrol Head”, “Mauve Frame”, and “Flood” are all perfect examples of Living Room using all of their past experience to confidently usher in the future. New Years is out now on Brooklyn indie label, Fear Icon Records.
Lean Year Announce 2nd LP ‘Sides’ Out 9/2 (Western Vinyl), Share Lead Single/Video “The Trouble With Being Warm”
Lean Year–the Richmond, VA-based duo of Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson–have announced their sophomore album Sides will be released on September 2nd, 2022, via Western Vinyl. They’ve also shared the elegant, slow burning lead single “The Trouble With Being Warm” alongside a video, directed by Alverson (who is also known for his work as the director of films including The Mountain, Entertainment, and The Comedy). “Late at night, after practice, we kept returning to this Mellotron drone Emilie had been playing. I added piano and we fleshed out the lyrics using a ‘ghost’ writing method we developed for some songs on the first record. I’d listen to Emilie singing through the wall and hear things, variations, words neither of us wrote. We’d develop from there, responding to this ‘third writer,’” explains Alverson.

THE BETHS announce new album “Expert In A Dying Field” and share video for lead single “Silence Is Golden”
The Beths announce their new album, Expert In A Dying Field, out September 16th on Carpark Records, and share the new single/video, “Silence Is Golden.” On Expert In A Dying Field, Elizabeth Stokes’ songwriting positions her somewhere between being a novelist and a documentarian. The songs collected here are autobiographical, but they’re also character sketches of relationships – platonic, familial, romantic – and more importantly, their aftermaths. The shapes and ghosts left in absences. The question that hangs in the air: what do you do with how intimately versed you’ve become in a person, once they’re gone from your life?
