Background

Reading-based indie-rockers Mellor have announced the details of their next EP ‘Fragment Of Imagination’, abd given us our first taste of things to come with the blistering new tune ‘Vacant Stare’. Adding about the new track, they said, “Vacant Stare is about becoming hostile and reliant on confrontation to feel good. It came from observing people arguing on social media about the most trivial subjects.” Despite the current global pandemic, Mellor maintained their momentum in 2020, releasing single ‘Heaven isn’t Yours to Give’, signing a management deal with Eighty4 Music, and getting picked up by Rob McGee at FMLY agency for live events. Never faltering, Mellor steamroll into 2021 with a schedule of genre-bending releases through Eighty4 Music / Ingrooves that are poised to make the band one of the hottest tipped acts of the year.

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have released their brand new single and video ‘New Age Millennial Magic’ on Communion. The single serves as an enticing bridge between where the band have come from and where they’re heading next, with a full length debut record currently in the works. ‘New Age Millennial Magic’ sees the band, led by Tom Rees, sarcastically outlining their views on current affairs, and the pressure this generation feels to have all the answers. A dig at himself as much as others, Rees includes himself as a target as he pokes fun at the know-it-all attitude of his fellow millennials. Rees explains: “Seeing Gen-Z’ers quitting school and actually influencing real change in place of me theorising whether Engels would have put his recycling out really brought into focus how fickle millennials (including myself) really are. I take absolute delight in lecturing a table of half-cut peers on the failures of capitalism, but little do they know my grab bag of 250 plastic guitar picks are already priming their way down the A470 straight to my door in the hands of an underpaid delivery driver with eyes like pissholes in fake snow.” See Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard live in 2021: 24 […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

We are so happy that the world is slowly getting back into gear and that some of our favorite musicians are back making wonderful music, you know..like Pizzagirl, who just released a new single titled Bullet Train. The single which is the second off his upcoming album Softcore Mourn, which is set to drop July 16th via Heist or Hit is a technicolored electro-pop bop. A chugging synth bassline underpins the anthemic track, while electronic instrumentation strobes in and out. As Liam tell us:  “Here’s my second single ‘Bullet Train’, another breakup song I think, but this time, at 200mph. I sound really bitter on this, and for good reason I’d say, my screen time is high, my battery is low and there’s no 5g at the end of this tunnel; haha ;)”  Pizzagirl also announced a few tour dates for this fall….

Realising a break from music altogether wasn’t quite for him, Padley took up the mantle of singer-songwriter for the first time, recruiting childhood friend Daniel Daws (bass) and local music scene acquaintance Richard Trust (drums) before launching his raucous new project in full. Having successfully edged their way onto the indie landscape with chaotic debut effort ‘Wet Eyes’earlier this year, the group have already won approval from key indie press champions (DIY, So Young, Gigwise, The Independent, Under The Radar), as well as early spins on the BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders) and BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq) airwaves, with the news of their debut record and impending tour dates only set to increase the level of hype. Discussing the outfit’s forthcoming release, Padley revealed: “‘The Ease’ is a celebration of the determined ego. By utilising unwavering confidence, the protagonist simply belittles the obstacles in his way to diminish and overcome them; an ode to the only redeeming […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

Los Angeles artist-on-the-rise Rouxx has shared the new music video for his latest single “Hit Harder,” which was released last Friday. The new alt-pop single focuses on the all-too-familiar feeling of being kicked while you’re down and finding it impossible to get back up. On the newest single and video, Rouxx shares, “In this video I wanted to express the anxiety, stress, and doubt of the state of the world this past year by showing all of the newspapers and headlines as well as illustrating the desperation of my current life and personal experience. The fire at the end signifies letting of all the fear and stress from this past year, accepting it all for what is has been, and moving forward. Like most people, I’ve been through a lot this past year and felt this was a necessary song for me to write.” For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

 Zachary Knowles, shares his newest single, “dancing in the kitchen.” The new track is all about being lazy and wasting the day away with someone you love and adore spending time with. It marks the moment when you know you’re with the right person because it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as it’s together. Trips and pre-planned adventures just seem like extra effort to get to the same feeling of bliss that can be created at home, dancing in the kitchen. Speaking on the new single, Knowles says, “Honestly I just wanted to write a really happy song with this one. Usually, my songs have sad undertones, so I felt like it was time to write one that was just happy and felt good all the way through. When I’m doing the dishes I always blare music and dance, so I wanted to share that feeling with others and give them something we could both dance to.”  For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

Slothrust announces their highly anticipated fifth album, Parallel Timeline, due out September 10, 2021, via Dangerbird Records. Along with the announcement the band shared the new single “Strange Astrology,” with a fun and fruity video that’s as much a celebration of the cosmic make-up of romantic relationships as it is a love letter to LGBTQ+ culture. Slothrust bandleader Leah Wellbaum pours her gigantic, golden sunshine Leo heart into the lyrics, “and I don’t mind / our strange astrology / I hope we find / you bring the best out in me.” Describing the single, Wellbaum says:“Strange Astrology is one of the only proper love songs I have ever written. It’s an honest exploration of what it means to love someone who is intrinsically different than you. It’s about hoping that those juxtaposing qualities and instincts encourage meaningful growth instead of chaos, but knowing that inevitably it will always be a bit of both. That is part of the fun of being in love with someone whose way of being starkly contrasts yours. I have always been fascinated by those differences and all the adventures and new perspectives they offer.”  The “Strange Astrology” video opens with Wellbaum in the center of a zodiac wheel of fruit, covered […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

 DE’WAYNE has released a lively new single and video “Walking to Work.” Complete with his unique blend of pop, hip-hop, rock and everything in between, the new release has DE’WAYNE doing what he does best – being unapologetically himself, having the time of his life and bringing his fans along for the ride.  “I used to walk to and from work 4 miles each way and dream about getting the chance to have people hear my music. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about that,” shares DE’WAYNE on Walking to Work, which further cements his place as one of the most innovative and exciting artists to watch right now. “Walking to Work” is DE’WAYNE’s third release of the year, following up “I Know Something” and recent radio hit “Perfume” featuring Awsten Knight of Waterparks. The alternative singer/rapper has been blurring genre lines and breaking out of any box he has been put into through his music, electrifying stage presence, and one-of-a-kind style and these tracks fully solidify that DE’WAYNE is an artist to watch in every way.

Indie sensation Charli Adams shares the new single ‘Cheer Captain’ and announces the arrival of debut LP ‘Bullseye’, set for release July 16th via Color Study (Haux, Lav, Rosie Carney). Marking the latest installment from the musician’s growing collection of relatable and heartfelt pop anthems, ‘Cheer Captain’ sees Adams wave goodbye to a youth spent in a deeply conservative, Christian environment in Alabama where she put cheerleading, worship leading, her family, and often toxic relationships with men (and God) above all. “‘Cheer Captain’ is a resentful and regretful song about struggling with a savior complex as a serial people pleaser”, explains the rising songwriter. “I desperately wanted to be everything for everyone so I became a customizable human being that often went against everything I actually am. It’s always felt like the thesis of this project as I touch on my relationship with religion, my parents, and men. I grew up in Alabama and I was captain of the cheerleading team in my freshman year of high school and a worship leader at a church. I think it’s safe to say I was struggling with my identity, in fact, I really hated it all so a year later, I started school online and moved to Nashville for music”.

 Exit Kid continues to utilize their signature cocktail of grunge, Britpop, and slacker-pop to deliver the goods with the latest single ‘Munny’. Following their explosive ‘Garden’ EP, ‘Munny’ further demonstrates Exit Kid’s ability to forge gritty anthems carrying themes and ideals of paramount importance to the duo. The single weaponizes crunching guitar, hammering drums, and powerful vocals to critique the infuriating contradictory nature of high society. Discussing their newest effort, Türkmen explained: “‘Munny’ is an exhausted rant about the continued blurring of the lines between truth and lies. I felt compelled to vomit the words whilst watching the US election and the storming of the Capitol building. The profiteering from such things by the likes of our old chum Facebook is maddening but seems to me a time-honoured capitalist tradition. Most people talk a good game, but when the time comes vote for their own self interest.” For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
