Artist: The Human Project
Song: “That One Percent”
From Leeds, England, this politically-charged punk band is frustrated with their country’s conservative government. I love the energy and passion of this track.
Artist: Years & Years
Song: “If You’re Over Me”
The first official single from their upcoming sophomore full-length album, Years & Years draws inspiration from varied sources ranging from cult sci-fi to the pop stylings of Bowie, Prince, and Lady Gaga. I enjoy their bright, pop sound.
Artist: Basement Revolver
This Hamilton indie-rock trio just announced their debut album, set to be released in August. They blend melancholic tones with fuzzy pop melodies.
Artist: Lenny Zenith
Song: “What If The Sun”
Gearing up to release his new power pop album, trans artist Lenny Zenith has a rich musical background, including fronting a punk band in the early 80s. This song and the album that it comes from shares Zenith’s life experiences.
Artist: Hit Bargain
LA band Hit Bargain just released their debut LP. This is the lead single from the new album and explores their city’s queer scene.
This Scottish pop-punk band is on the rise, and their latest single pays homage to Drake’s “Hotline Bling”. I enjoy how fun and laid back this song is.
