Nightjacket unveil captivating new single “Waking Up With You,” play the Troubadour on 4/23

Holland Belle shows her unabated love with complete abandon on “Waking Up With You.” The deeply romantic new single by indie-rock trio Nightjacket is the perfect vehicle for Belle to reveal her innermost desires. “Ooh, waking up with you/there’s so much more to find,” Belle sings with her delicate, yet commanding croon, a sweet affirmation that pairs lovingly alongside the band’s brisk, charging pop-rock arrangement. Her lyrical sentiments—evoked with plainspoken simplicity—were inspired after she moved to Berlin to follow the love of her life.

“Waking Up With You” is the first single off of Nightjacket’s debut full-length, Beauty in the Dark, which is due out on May 31. There’s plenty of chances to catch the trio perform in the coming weeks: first at the Troubadour on April 23, followed by a show at the Bootleg on May 7. Juan Rodríguez

Mini Trees paces herself on new single "Steady Me"

Last we heard from Lex Vega—who performs as Mini Trees—was last year when we covered her reflective single "Take It Back." Her latest, "Steady Me," expands upon her lithe ambient touches with a tightly crafted indie-pop sound. Vega brims with cautious optimism, recognizing the goodwill that comes from being in a healthy relationship while also accepting its inevitable missteps. She's gradually coming into her own, taking another songwriting leap forward with sure-footed ease.

"Steady Me" is the first single off of Mini Trees' forthcoming debut EP, which is set for release in May. Juan Rodríguez

Watch Signals' peculiar new video for "In the Middle of the Night"

There's something unsettling about Signals' latest music video for "In the Middle of the Night." A stoic mannequin sings along to the towering, synth-laden electro-rock of Brendan Byrnes and Ian Vargo. The cut has a grainy film look that adds a certain menacing effect—as if we're watching some futuristic art installation unfold—where a projected image attempts to personalize the duo's heart-rending lyrical effusions. Perhaps it's that contrast of melodic buoyancy and mechanical expression that makes it all the more confounding. It's best to leave it to open interpretation, after all, though it does add another layer to a sonically textured song that is otherwise pouring with optimism (though behind the joyful intent it describes a romantic dissolution with chilling effect). 

"In the Middle of the Night" is featured on Signals' self-titled EP, out now via their official SoundCloud page and all streaming platforms. Juan Rodríguez
