Single Review: King No-One - "Bad Porno"

Full of glamour and drenched in neon lights, the indie/alt outlet King No-One dropped their latest single “Bad Porno” on 3/12 and it’s as grand as they are. The Yorkshire three-piece, Zach Lount, James Basile, and Joe Martin have crafted a unique sound that’s infused with experimental vibes, synths and hammering riffs to forge a style that stands out.  “Bad Porno” is a nod to noughties pop, the tracks that ruled the radio waves, filled with infectious beats with lyrics that were guaranteed to get stuck in your head. Combine that with a heavy metal punch and you have this track....

Artist Spotlight: Indighxst

I stand by my theory of some of the best acts coming from New Jersey; it's something in the water, I suppose. One of Jersey's rising post-hardcore acts, Indighxst, is sure to stir up some commotion this year. The four-piece hard rock group have been around for a while now, but started picking up momentum most recently with Dreambound promotion & being featured on alternative rock duo, Nova Twins', Spotify playlist: "Voices For The Unheard" featuring a ton of inspiring POC alternative artists.  Their most recent single, "Limbo," dropped at the end of last year. This track is one they claim to be very...

Single Review: Pulses. - "No Good Can Come From This, But It Can't Get Any Worse"

From Northern Virginia, dawns the post-hardcore/emo group, Pulses., who are bringing a fresh & addicting sound into the scene this new year. This four-piece band first teased their upcoming EP with the single, "Brand New Taste," which is a wonderfully fast-paced-in-your-face introduction to this new era. On February 19th, they dropped their second single, "No Good Can Come From This, But It Can't Get Any Worse." Although the long Fall Out Boy-esque titles can be daunting, we assure you it's a track you won't want to miss. "No Good Can Come From This..." has bursts of angst & pent up rage that help orchestrate the overall erratic...

Hailing from North Carolina is three-piece rock group, Holy Figures, who dropped their debut EP, Luck of the Draw, at the very beginning of last year.  These four tracks of Luck of the Draw all have their own personality while also being one wonderfully cohesive blend. "Beatrice" kicks the door off the hinge with heavy electric guitar progressions & a haunting melody with a flavor reminiscent of...
