Timber Timber - "Sewer Blues"

From the depths of nightmare’s and the heart of sadness, Timber Timber are back with a new track that is a much more tame take on their normal sound. Off of their upcoming album, Sincerely, Future Pollution (out in April), Sewer Blues is a slow rock ballad that is slightly off centre of the band’s core.

Declan McKenna - "The Kids Don't Wanna Come 
Home"

13267807_521860821355628_163281485034362623_nHeartwarmingly honest and sweetly raw, The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home, is the latest single from UK darling Declan McKenna. The 18-year-old masks his youth by writing truthful songs from an artistic perspective.

Said the Whale - "Step into the Darkness"

A recent loss of members didn’t stop the band from moving on as a trio. Step into Darkness is the first single put forth by the new set up. Each album after the last Said the Whale seems to reinvent themselves with a new sound and feel and this single does the same. A slow ballad is a step back from the heavy pop sound in their last album hawaii, yet still unlike anything they’ve produced in the past.

Cage the Elephant - "Cold Cold Cold"

There is something simply addicting about Cage the Elephant. Their newest video adds a dramatic element to track, with a minute-long into the theatrical song.

 

Muuy Biien - "Moral Compass"

A cluster of odd, dark and enthralling rock Muuy Biien unleashed a new view off of their debut album Age of Uncertainty.  Featuring Even Peters, the video is a mind boggling look into the dark oddities that make the band so enticing.

Toronto’s beloved band on the rise is back and they’re showing their softer side. July Talk’s newest track is a completely different sound heard in slower ballads even from their debut album. The rock element is stripped and we see the vocalists focus on pairing piano with the unique voices of the duo.

Elephant Stone - Manipulator
