This week, a ton of new music dropped in the alt scene. Like, nearly every day a new song or EP was released. We know it can be hard to keep track, so we’ve got you covered with this week’s Hot Alt Alert, featuring Broadside’s ‘Lucid,’ LATEWAVES’ ‘Frog,’ as well as a few others! For this one, we’re gonna go in chronological order.
Youth Fountain — ‘Fallen Short’
Mondays can be rough, but luckily, Youth Fountain made our Monday a little better with their new song, ‘Fallen Short!’ This song goes hard, but the lyrics? They hurt. And we can’t get enough of it. “I ruin all that I touch. And just like that it’s all gone. Fallen short because I’m never enough.” We need to hear it live ASAP. Fortunately, they’ll be going on tour, so be sure to get your tickets.
Broadside – ‘Lucid (Ft. Devin Papadol)’
Wednesday, we couldn’t stop listening to Broadside’s ‘Lucid’ featuring Devin Papadol of Honey Revenge! We’re absolutely obsessed with the synth pop vibes. It’s definitely a new Broadside era and we’re here for it. Also, can we talk about the imagery of the lyrics?! “And I believe in all the ghosts I’m still seeing of you. But they tend to be just empty sheets, and a pair of lonely shoes.” We’re also stoked because they announced their upcoming album, Hotel Bleu, which drops November 10th.

LUNA AURA — THE FICTION
Thursday, LUNA AURA released a new EP, THE FICTION. We absolutely couldn’t get enough of CANDY COLORED DAYDREAM’ and the rest of the EP didn’t disappoint either. We already went more in-depth about why it’s absolutely fantastic. Our favorite song, though? ‘CUT AND RUN’ for sure.
LATEWAVES — ‘Frog’
TGIF and TG that LATEWAVES released a new song! This song is catchy and upbeat. The music video is so fun and unserious. How many music videos can you think of where the band dresses up as frogs?! We can’t think of any. We are vibing hard to this one. Please, LATEWAVES. We need frog merch.
