Artist: Skating Polly “Ugly”
Album: Fuzz Steilacoom
Before you rip this Oklahoma City-based duo for channeling to much Kurt Cobain, check out the whole video cause I couldn’t take my eyes off it. These stepsisters have more grit than any rock band I’ve heard in ages. They’re brash, greasy and unconcerned with looking “pretty.” They’re like a new age Bikini Kill.
Sounds like: “She wants to be a pretty girl / She wants to be stereo.”
Artist: FEVERS “Dance Cry Dance”
Album: No Room For Light
Ottawa natives FEVERS, have just released a video for their infectious electro-dance-pop single “Dance Cry Dance,” and it’s all fuzzy guitars, sharp, piercing synths and momentum for miles.
Sounds like: “I wana dance, cry, dance and forget the shit that I can’t stand, I wana leave it at the door.”
Sounds like: “I don’t think back, I don’t need to, but I’m always thinking of you.”

Sounds like: “What is love? / What is this I’m feeling right now? / Maybe you’re my drug / And I’m fiending right now.”
Artist: daysdeaf “Giving Life to Greys”
Album: When Colour Lost Light
This one was an unexpected, unpolished beauty. Something of a conceptual project, When Colour Lost Light, from daysdeaf takes a subjective look at both the omni-present and unconscious influence colour has on identity.
Sounds like: “We lost ourselves to each other.”
