Boyband feat. Billy Martin (Good Charlotte) — ‘Death Note’
Taking a page from the classic anime Death Note, boyband kills it with his new song and video of the same name. The lyrics are refreshingly subtitled in Japanese, while the background of the video is straight from an animated world. The video transitions us from the screen of a laptop before an all animated world is before our eyes. We can tell there’s a deep love of Japanese anime from the styling to the direct reference of what a death note does. The opening guitar sound feels like the start of an epic anime. If you’re a lover of animation, Japan, Death Note, or boyband, hop on this before you get your name jotted down. No heart attacks. Promise.
Brian Mietz — Panzarotti
There is a definite flower child tone to Panzarotti that harks back to the age of peace and love. The opening song ‘Hollyweed’ is so on the nose but we dig it. Each song has a psychedelic vibe that begs us to grab some rose-colored glasses and just chill. Brian Mietz is an old soul just having fun. We think you should grab your buds and vibe to Panzarotti.
Caitlyn Smith — ‘Supernova’
Caitlyn Smith’s sophomore album Supernova is due for release on March 24th and we are so excited. The title single ‘Supernova’ is stunning, with soft, gentle vocals and a fragile piano melody. That match the beautifully simple acoustic video, filmed live in the studio. It’s a song about what happens when you enter the big wide world, beyond the little bubble that you grew up in, and we have been awe-struck by this super talented lady! Her album will be a must-have!
The National Parks – ‘Wildflower’
This unique country-Esque single had us on the edge of our seats. ‘Wildflower’ successfully mixed multiple types of music genres into one song. Harmonica, soft elements of electric guitar and a chorus of soft angelic voices grace the intro of the song. Just when your relaxed and easing into the sounds, the guitar shreds and drums boom into a popish rock song. The National Parks bring their music video to life by tracking through the desert, floating down rivers and hacking along on horseback. We honestly can’t get enough of these guys! You can catch them on tour starting in April!
Lucifour — Due
Funky guitar riffs, crisp drums, and jazzy chords are combined with a charming vocal performance throughout the entire EP.nEach of their songs go deep into detail about life and love in all its generalities. Lucifour M has the capacity to combines influences of funk, soul, and pop and fuses them all to make one unique EP, that matches no other. Jazz influences the saxophone while it mixes with the Michele and Marcos lyrics. This EP is not your typical everyday pop album, but we think it is still more than worthy to make it to your favorite playlist!
How’s that for a sugar high? With a list like that, can life get any sweeter? We think not.
