Repenter releases blistering debut single, "So Sick"

Repenter's heavy, blistering debut single "So Sick" gets its point across with startling immediacy. Led by a chugging guitar line with a punk flourish, the duo of vocalist Holly Winter and guitarist Thomas Scriven complement each other with an ease that can't be taught. "I just want you to know that I ain't mad at ya, but I ain't a fan of ya," Winter unapologetically sings in a husky upper register, making a pointed critique at the insidious side of influencer culture. - Juan Rodríguez

Cuffed Up release stellar debut single "Mother/Father"

On their debut single, "Mother/Father," Cuffed Up shake off their inhibitions with a blistering call-to-arms. "Safety is not a guarantee / when you're afraid of everything," sing co-founders Sapphire Jewel and Ralph Torrefranca, a vigorous reminder to anyone who's ever been caught in a vulnerable moment. Having met through likeminded interests—specifically the modern UK punk scene—Jewel and Torrefranca stumbled upon a bracing new single without knowing that it'd develop into a full-time passion project, especially considering that they'd just left their bands Gypsum and Dr. Doctor, respectively (both great in their own right). The quartet may look into modern rabble-rousers like Shame and IDLES for inspiration, but what's best about "Mother/Father" is what they subliminally reference through their shifting dynamics and dexterous guitar work—there are shadings of Sonic Youth's Sister/Daydream Nation-era period, from their dual vocal parts and steady rhythmic passages. With such a strong debut, consider their formation by happenstance the happiest of accidents.

Check out "Mother/Father," and the accompanying double side A single "Small Town Kid," below. - Juan Rodríguez





Emma Charles releases reflective new single "Scorpio," performs at The Mint on 8/19

The inspiration behind "Scorpio," Emma Charles' new single, came like one of those spur-of-the-moment conversations we have with the ones closest to us. After having a conversation with a friend, she was aware of the fact that her birth date is close to two star signs (for those interested, she's in between a Sagittarius and a Scorpio), each known to have distinct personality traits. Random conjecturing on astrology aside, the folk-pop singer's latest also finds a satisfactory compromise—the gentle mid-tempo cut is delicate yet assured, where she battles the intense oscillating emotions that consume her mental energy.

Charles is supporting the release of "Scorpio" at Hunnypot Live at The Mint on August 19. Juan Rodríguez
