This week, The Verge wants to get your ears on these great new tracks.
Tourist Company – Conflicted/Restricted
Vancouver’s Tourist Company is back after releasing their debut album in 2016 with a powerful song about the inevitability of disaster. The band says “We wrote this song about the tension of recognizing an impending disaster and being powerless to escape it” The music video echoes the lyrics in an intriguing way.
PUP – Free At Last
Toronto punk rockers PUP continue to reveal more from their upcoming third album, Morbid Stuff, out in April. With ‘Free At Last’, the band put the chords for the song online and fans had the opportunity to play the new tune without actually hearing what the song sounded like. Check out the fun video below.
BAD CHILD – Breathing Fire
Bad Child brings a mix of R&B and Alt Rock to life with his new track, ‘Breathing Fire’. He describes his music as finding redemption in his failures, about not being good enough, not living up to expectations and about trying to be a better person. This self taught artist is on the verge of making major waves in 2019.
Ellis – Something Blue
Moving into her second week on the watch list, Ellis’s ‘Something Blue’ will set you adrift into a sea of memories upon a raft of nostalgia. She creates a dream space, one that you can easily navigate and never lose sight of land.
Reignwolf – Black And Red
‘Black And Red’ continues to rock our headphones this week. Reignwolf was just in Austin, TX where he demolished 5 SXSW showcases. Check out one of his blistering sets below and see why SPIN Magazine said this about him:
“Some people just bleed rock’n’roll charisma, and Reignwolf leaves every ounce of it on stage.”
