With his highly-anticipated new EP ‘Ambitions’ set to arrive on the 6th November through Icons Creating Evil Art, Swedish musical troubadour David Alexander aka Summer Heart has now returned to unveil the new video for one of the collection’s standout offerings ‘Good Together’. Continuing his pursuit of bright and glittering dream-pop, ‘Good Together’ sets itself as one of the integral parts of his new EP. Telling the story of his recent trip to California and the inspiration it gave him for this new release, the new single looks to capture the freedom he felt while over there and set the narrative that became ‘Ambitions’. Directed and created by animator Jason Edmunds, the video for ‘Good Together’ is set to be the first of many animated visuals for the frontman from this new project. Set in Los Angeles, we see an almost superhero version of Summer Heart riding a motorcycle through the city with his LA love, we see him continue the bright and romantically-charged direction he is known for.

I’ve really needed that a lot […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

On the song and video, lead vocalist, Dylan Slocum shares, “This song is about feeling trapped. People like to say ‘it gets better’ about depression or anxiety, but this is about that creeping feeling that it might not. That maybe you’ll be stuck feeling a certain way, or working a job you hate, or with a body you hate, forever.“ “By the time we decided to do another video, the lockdown blues had gotten pretty intense. Being the ultra-positive band that we are, we decided to throw ourselves little solo parties and invited our fans to do the same. four hours of footage later, it turned out we all needed the party more than we knew.” Slocum continues to share about the new record, “Brave Faces Everyone is us honing in on what we think makes our band resonate with people — namely, the feeling that you’re not alone.

 Wayside has dropped their brand new single “Cherophobia” which is inspired by elements of indie, 90’s rock & alternative genres. The duo made up of Vocalist Thomas Davenport and Guitarist Josh Ehmer have created a single with huge emotional spirit, driving guitar melodies, and even pop sensibilities creating a sound that is fresh, young, and exciting to a new generation of alternative music fans.  “It’s about believing that I’m the best version of myself when I’m alone. I typically go a little insane when I care a lot for a person, and I don’t like myself when that happens. When I’m alone, no one’s thoughts, words nor actions can influence my mind; There’s also an element of choosing to be alone, rather than settling for something that is mediocre / I’m not certain about,” shares Davenport on today’s release. “I guess the message I’m trying to deliver is that it’s okay to choose yourself, not to settle for something that you’re not certain of. As someone whose feelings can fluctuate a lot, I like the certainty and consistency of just looking after myself.”   “Cherophobia” was recorded & engineered with renowned producer Lachlan Mitchell (The Vines, The Jezabels) at Parliament Studios in Sydney while Callan Orr (Dream on Dreamer/Agnes Manners) mixed […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

Never Loved is shaking things up with the release of “Sunshine.” The new single is shadowy and visceral – reflecting on darker times despite its vibrant title.  Explains vocalist Camm Knopp: “‘Sunshine’ is about wanting change and growth. I wrote this song during a time when I felt stuck in the same cycles and was surrounded by people who weren’t good for me. For a while, I wasn’t even aware of that, and the idea of being where I wanted to be didn’t feel possible. Eventually,I reached a point where I felt like I had the choice to either create the change I wanted or remain where I was at. I used to be afraid of change, but now I trust it’s always for the best.”  Hailing from the sunny shores of South Florida, Never Loved captivates you with choruses & loud, gritty guitars. This four-piece powerhouse is guaranteed to spark your inner adolescence. For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)

In Josie Man, Identity Pop has found its voice. In a klaxon world of urgency and negativity, Josie’s music is a reminder of the importance to be vulnerable, empathetic, and mindful. A hypnotic performer, with a voice as sweet as honey, Josie wants to bring her quest for kindness to the world, and communicates this through the overarching notion of love; for both herself, and those around her.   A daughter of Hong Kong and Orpington, Josie also seeks to bridge her two cultures through music. “When I was little and surrounded by both my Cantonese-speaking and South East London family, I invented my own language and my own universe of colours and symbols,” Josie shares. “I learnt that there is more than one way to be. Rules of being can be blurred.” Josie’s new single ‘GROW’ is as anthemic as it is introspective  – a touching dose of angel-filled pop that speaks on the need for self-love, support and inner growth – adapting and changing through your life experiences. “I’ve been hurt, lessons learnt but nothing ever grows without it.” The single follows on from Josie’s defiant offering and BBC Introducing’s ‘Track Of The Week’ – “Just Me” – another reminder to stay true to yourself and accept your unique […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
