Morgan Saint Creates Downcast Pop in Video for "YOU," goes to SXSW

Donning an aesthetic drawn from the experimental side of runway fashion and new wave androgyny, the left-field tendencies of Alternative R&B newcomer Morgan Saint are on full-display in the music and video for "YOU." The video sees the singer performing her subdued brand of vibrant and forlorn synthpop amidst an empty stage; creating a barren, yet, intimate atmosphere to match the song's crestfallen tone. Saint will be performing at this year's South by Southwest Festival following the release of her debut EP, 17 Hero. "YOU" can be streamed below. - Alexander Beebe

 





New Track: "Outnumbered" - The HIRS Collective

Friends. Lovers. Favorites., the first official full-length album from The HIRS Collective, is scheduled for release on April 20 via Get Better Records/SRA Records. An eye-popping array of guests that includes Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace, Garbage's Shirley Manson, and Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster just to name a few can be found on the forthcoming record. The LP’s closer, “Outnumbered,” issues a warning message aimed at those whom infringe on the rights of trans-women. Along with Thou, HIRS will be supporting Screaming Females at Union Transfer on Thursday, April 5, which is presented by WKDU.





SAVAK Keep Rock's Flame Burning With Eclectic Sound

Consisting of members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops, SAVAK is a new super-group of sorts that sports an intriguing sound. By blending garage rock rhythms with saxophone flourishes and a presentation rife with hardcore punk energy, SAVAK put forward an indie rock variation that is as noisy as it is hook-laden and expresses an eccentric range of influences. "Reaction" and "Drop the Pieces" from their 2016 album Best of Luck in Future Endeavors can be streamed below. - Alexander Beebe





New Track: "Boy" - Instupendo

“Boy,” the new single from Aidan Peterson, a.k.a. Instupendo, is an awakening attitude adjustment. It starts the day off on the right foot, while delicate, tiptoeing keys gradually gain depth and pace. Subtlety developing layers before revealing the groove, the song captures an elegant, dance-catalyzing density. You can catch Instupendo at Coda on Friday, March 30, opening for Digitalism.





herMajesty shares single “Weightless” + plays Mercury Lounge on 2/28

Alternative indie pop rockers herMajesty new track “Weightless” (streaming below) is a mid-tempo rocker that pairs layered guitar hooks and bright synths with a distinct driving backbeat. Band visionary JP is given open space for his soft-sandpapery vocals and vivid lyrical poetry.  Lyrics like “Let the colors and the scent settle on your skin - let the yellow lilac and the brooding rose pull you in this violet dream” create visually dramatic moments underscored by plucking piano and alternating synth notes. The chorus reveals the need to rise above a “concrete wall” and the limitations we place on ourselves, to become “weightless.” Written over a four year span and recorded in numerous cities, this single and the band's upcoming album was mixed by Giovanni Nicoletta in Berlin. To celebrate its release, they will play an early show at Mercury Lounge on 2/28 with The Goodnight Darlings. - Dave Cromwell
