Secret Weapons – My Blue Heaven

Secret Weapons

It turns out Secret Weapons have been keeping a few things from us, the unfortunate news of lead singer Gerry Lange being ill. Whilst touring with bands like Weezer and Panic! at the Disco, the band kept Gerry’s health struggles quiet and as Danny Rocco says “strangely, the album became about making the album.”

Their latest single ‘My Blue Heaven’ embodies that very struggle.

Sounds like: Future Islands, The 1975, Lionel Richie, The Levity, The Island Club, Ghost Beach, Backstreet Boys, LANY, Great Good Fine Ok, The Knocks, Dagny

Alexander Bernard – Wax

Alexander Bernard by Courtney Kimmey

Los Angeles-based producer/songwriter Alexander Bernard gives us a taste of his musical swagger on ‘Wax’.

Like wax melting in the sun, Alexander offers us warm bass lines of nu-disco and psych, synth sounds of pop with his soulful pipes.

Elizabritz – The Other Side

Elizabritz - The Other Side

Elizabritz is an electro pop/R&B duo composed of producer ‘Fantom’ from North Carolina and singer Rachael Eff from Los Angeles.

Their offbeat track ‘Other Side’ reminds us of an early Clean Bandit, and considers being becoming complacent with a long term partner.

NOVAA x LO – Go There

NOVAA x LO

A collaborative album sounds exciting to us, especially when it’s written and produced by rising singer/songwriter/producer NOVAA and UK bedroom producer LO.

‘Go There’ is the third single from their ‘LIGHTS’ album, and “is about empty promises and letting go of someone that doesn’t really want you. It’s the moment you realize that you’re put on hold and that it’s not a romance but a game. The bubble you lived in pops and you find yourself playing a role and being someone that you don’t want to be.”

The album is out now on 29 September via Majestic Casual.

Sounds like: FØRTE, Mura Masa, Aurora, Diplo, AlunaGeorge, Grimes

Smallpools – Run With The Bulls

Smallpools by Dan Monick

Smallpools by Dan Monick

After a brief hiatus, US band Smallpools return with their first independent release; a frenetic video for ‘Run With The Bulls’.

Working with the track’s producer, Frederik Thaae (Atlas Genius, Saint Motel), for the bulk of their summer, it’s safe to say that Smallpools have definitely ramped things up a bit. Possibly a “so long!” to RCA Records, possibly not. Either way, it’s decent stuff!

Sounds like: The Bravery, Panic! At The Disco, Passion Pit, Phoenix, Matt & Kim

AM!R – Design

AMIR

AMIR

Every now and then an artist stands out amongst the crowd.

One such artist is AM!R; a half Egyptian, half-Irish American.

AM!R has already produced with Sia and Panic! At The Disco in his short career, and we can immediately draw comparison to the sensual and original talents of the late Prince.

To top that off, his empowering track, ‘Design’ is an ode to strong women out there, saying “How can you not admire and love the design of a strong woman. And lucky for me, New York is brimming with them. One in particular caught me off guard, and this is a celebration of her: her attitude, her heart, her power. An inspiring woman.”

Head over to his Soundcloud page for a free download.

Playlist: Four Authors

Four Authors

Four Authors

Four Authors are making a bit of an impact in the UK music scene, having already been described as “pop rock at it’s finest” by BBC Introducing.

With that in mind, the boys have put together a wicked playlist for Indietronica. Listen below.

Panic! At The Disco – I Write Sins Not Tragedies

One of their earliest songs and one of their best, although they do keep consistently writing phenomenal music.

Twenty One Pilots – Heavy dirty soul

We love this band for their unique way to blend so many genres of music together including two of our favourites, Rock and Rap.

Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark

We’ve grown up being a huge fan of this band right back from their early punk beginnings. One of our favourite things about this band is their ever evolving sound. We could have chosen any number of songs by FOB but this one best represents their modern pop rock anthems they have had a habit of writing over the past two albums.

One Republic – Counting Stars

Lead single from an album we found while traveling, this song is a pop rock masterpiece and the soundtrack to an amazing time in our lives.

Ed Sheeran – I See Fire

He’s one of the greatest musical talents of the last few years. We’ve been listening to him way before he made it massive and he’s still writing brilliant songs. We love how I See Fire sounds so HUGE with so little actually on it.

Ward Thomas – Carry You Home

Reminds us of American country rock and being in Nashville. Big Chorus!

Taylor Swift – I Know Places

Every one of Taylor’s songs are so musically different, probably down to the different producers and writers she collaborates with. We chose this because of the fantastic melodies she uses in the vocals.

One Republic – Wherever I Go

Pretty much every song Ryan Tedder writes is a lesson on how to write a hit track.

Twenty One Pilots – Stressed out

They’re putting out music that is different and mix different styles in their tracks really well.

Their album is out now via ALYA RECORDS.

Sounds like: Fun, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Temper Trap

Playlist: Secret Weapons

Secret Weapons

Secret Weapons

Brooklyn based, 80’s promoters, Secret Weapons have just shared self-titled their EP. But to top that off, they have also put together a playlist of epic proportions for our lovely readers.

Pasion Pit – Take a Walk
Sonically passion pit stood out from the rest. Buzz saw synths and joyful chord progressions with contradictory lyrics.

Jack Ü – To Ü (feat. Aluna George)
This track ushered in an era of production and a million imitates.

Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
This song is simply thrilling to us. A slow burn filled with so much dramatic tension. It does so much with so little, and builds to final climax like a masterpiece.

Tom Tom Club – Genius of Love
This song redefined corky to us. It’s got such a killer groove and the most playful melodies.

Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime
Pure emotion. Soul and personality spew from every singe vocal line and instrument.

Joe Cocker – With A Little Help From My Friends
An incredible reimagination of this song. you could bring it around a million times and it keeps feeling better and better. the choir harmonies and live energy give us chills.

Selena Gomez – Hands To Myself
Simple pop bliss, haunting guitars.

The Killers – I Can’t Stay
A simple sentiment goes such a long way on this one. Also part of a larger album that we admire greatly.

Shamir – On The Regular
The dopest beat and the dopest visuals. You can’t imagine any other music video for this song.

Coldplay – Lovers In Japan
A beautiful love story, and some of the most heart-racing melodic beauty you can achieve.

The Strokes – You Only Live Once
The crunch of these guitars has influences us heavily. a solid strokes classic from a classic strokes album.

Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg – still d.r.e
Hip hop classic, pure and simple.

Cheryl Lynn – Got To Be Real
All around an incredible song.

Fifth Harmony – Sledgehammer
Every girl in the group is showcased beautifully here. The perfect girl group.

Queen – Another One Bites The Dust
Pure classic. We admire queen greatly for stepping into so many different genres. it’s hard to pick a favorite Queen song, but my god this is certainly Danny’s. This is also Danny’s favorite song of all time.

Secret Weapons be on tour this month across the U.S with Weezer, Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco, and ending the tour with a date at Lollapalooza on Saturday night.

Sounds like: The 1975, Lionel Richie, The Levity, The Island Club, Ghost Beach, Backstreet Boys, LANY, Great Good Fine Ok, The Knocks, Dagny

Hellogoodbye – (Everything Is) Debatable

Hellogoodbye

Hellogoodbye

Hellogoodbye are back!

The Hellogoodbye boys rocketed to fame with former records such as ‘Here (In Your Arms)’ and ‘All Of Your Love’; both of which were taken from their 2006 hit album ‘Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!’.

The 7 years absence from our stereos appears to have treated the indie pop outfit well as they showcase the video for their new track ‘(Everything Is) Debatable’.

Despite continuing with the quotation mark theme within the title of the song, ‘(Everything Is) Debatable’ is a refined track full of synth pop and heartbroken lyrics. Hellogoodbye seemed to have grown up.

Their upcoming album ‘Everything Is Debatable’ is out now via Old Friends Records.

The boys continue their US tour with Paramore and Metric.

Sounds like: The 1975, Panic at the Disco, Passion Pit, Metric, Carousel, Small Pools
