Maryze Shares New Single “Squelettes” featuring Backxwash

Even though this whole year has been a Horror movie, many of us are still celebrating this October as spooky season is here. To commemorate the favorite holiday of us weirdoes, Montreal-based singer/songwriter Maryze has released a brand new single titled “Squelettes,” and it’s her most ambitious track yet. I know I probably sound like a broken record, because every time Maryze drops something I describe it as “her most ambitious yet,” well, that’s because she continues to reinvent herself and experiment with new sounds, some even outside of her comfort zone, and that’s the mark of a true innovator. Meaning “Skeleton” in French, “Squelettes” is her darkest track yet. With hard-hitting production from Margo, and an explosive verse from Backxwash, the track is hauntingly catchy, but instead of delving into the typical “ghouls and goblins” tropes affiliated with Halloween, Maryze speaks on addiction and mental illness, which is far more disturbing than ghosts and zombies. Many of us have been forced to deal with our demons during this pandemic, and a lot of us have used unhealthy coping methods, and Maryze doesn’t sugarcoat this subject. The shouts of “what the fuck are you doing here?!” from Backxwash is all of us as we deal with that inner voice that tries to sabotage us, even when things are going well. It’s a dark yet inspiring track that dives deep into the darkness to trudge through the mud in order to reach the light at the end of the tunnel. “Squelettes” is a taste of what’s yet to come on Maryze’s debut album which is set to be released next year on “Hot Tramp Records.” You can listen to “Squelettes” below:

Movie Club Share New Single “Rainshadow” featuring Rami Jaffee and Jessy Greene

Venice Beach-based instrumental Rock duo “Movie Club” are set to release their debut full-length album Black Flamingo on November 27th, and the album is shaping up to be more than the jam Rock grooviness we’ve come to expect from the band. The proof is in their new single “Rainshadow.” Incorporating beautiful and cinematic violin and keys provided by Jessy Greene and Rami Jaffee, the track is a lot more melancholy than it’s predecessor, prompting the listener to imagine a rainy day.

Sapphire Blues Share New Single “Ourselves Forgotten”

Bristol’s own “Sapphire Blues” have released a new single titled “Ourselves Forgotten” via “Blitzcat Records.” The track further explores the unsparing Post-Punk-laden style the band have perfected with dark and impressively catchy anxiety-inducing instrumentation with observant lyrical content that is “influenced by small town boredom and an urge to get away from memories under the skin of every street. Losing yourself on the weekend, over and over again, hanging to your daydreams as a means of escape.” You can listen to “Ourselves Forgotten” below:

Pixx Shares New Music Video for “Everything is Weird in America”

After three years, Rogers has finally released a video she had shot for the song, and now seems like the best time to release it, because right now things are incredibly strange here in America.

Broken Baby and Tummyache Share New Single “Ctrl-Alt-Delete”

L.A. based “Punk Rock” duo “Broken Baby” and musician Soren Bryce under her “Alternative Rock” project “Tummyache” have released their new collaborative single “Ctrl-Alt-Delete,” and it is an irresistible fusion of riotous “Post-Punk” and “Alternative Pop.” The collaboration was born out of a bond the two groups formed while on their Southwest tour pre-COVID. The track speaks on cancel culture in the absence of real justice in America. “Women and minorities shouldn’t have to use the court of public opinion to get fair treatment in this country, but until that happens we’ll have to rely on the crude instruments we have at our disposal,” says Amber Bollinger and Alex Dezen of “Broken Baby.” You can watch the music video for “Ctrl-Alt-Delete” below:
