Tender Age's "Don't Mind" Video

Tender Age has a new music video out for their song “Don’t Mind.” The song, which is off their newly released album Becoming Real Forever, is buzzy, frothy shoegaze. Much like the song, the video is cleverly simple and lots of fun. It features the members nonchalantly spending a lazy afternoon by the dumpster, making music and just generally having a good time. The video looks and feels like a modern day Dazed and Confused. Towards the end of the video, the band begins engaging in passive destruction of the props around them as any good drone rock band would. It’s a great reflection of the band’s attitude and style.

New Katie Ellen EP Available for Streaming

A few days ahead of its July 20th release via Lauren Records, Still Life, the new EP from Katie Ellen, is available for streaming. Balancing a melodic, earnest ease with an infectious energy, the songs wrap one up in a state of reflective assessment. Anika Pyle exhibits a level of focus and clarity. Within her vocals, there’s a gentle strength which adheres. Katie Ellen is set to head out on tour with Lemuria and Dusk at the end of this week.

   

New Track: "You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)" - Spirit Haus

Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR, Former Belle) recently shared a new single from his other musical outlet, Spirit Haus. Keys provide an ethereal glow as the heavy thump of backend knocks one to the ground in “You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)”. The sadness of a relationship reaching its end is illuminated as you witness a one way conversation. Emerging from the darkness, the song occupies a somber step forward, as delicate layers of production glisten in the moonlight.
