HOAX – Unamerican Dream
NYC-based indie-pop outfit HOAX shares their second single from their ‘b?’ album, called ‘Unamerican Dream’.
A satiryical playoff of the “American Dream”, centred around immigration, a topic close to both Michael Raj and Frantz Cesar’s hearts.
Having been close to the subject, HOAX will be donating 50% of royalties from “Unamerican Dream” to KIND (Kids In Need of Defense), an organization that helps immigrant children who entered the U.S. alone find a safe haven.
Sounds like: Manic Street Preachers, Hers
LOVER – Starving
LOVER (aka Oliver Kirby) is taking a pragmatic approach to making music in his new single, ‘Starving’.

Sounds like: Gold Coast, Tanssi
