Another talented musician from Berklee. This one goes by the name of yellowbirddd (aka Liam McCormack).
Emo singer, and Neil Young fan through and through, yellowbirddd combines angst with folk sounds.
‘Frogtown’ does just this, and we especially love the snippets of festive bells in the track.
McCormack is hoping to release an album called ‘You’re Already in Paradise’ with the help of an IndieGoGo campaign.
PHIL GOOD is the project of Los Angeles-based Jared Maldonado, also the former frontman of Dresses.
He has debuted with ‘Sleeping In’; a quintessential indietronica track with a simple, yet memorable melody, and glossy vocals.

We’ve been long term fans of Meadowlark and it’s been a privilege to watch them grow from strength to strength over the last couple of years.
The Bristol duo have unveiled the official video for their new single ‘Headlights’.
Directed by the band’s, Dan Broadley, the video was filmed in one take. Dan explains,
“The expressive dancing explores many of the complex emotions that fuel a relationship, the passion, the rage, the bubble that encapsulates both bodies. Meanwhile Kate and myself weave in and out of this energetic routine, narrating the story from the lyrics whilst remaining invisible to the characters.”
Signed to Believe Recordings (James Vincent McMorrow, Gavin James), Meadowlark have a debut album on the horizon for 2017.
