Sophia Boro releases single "I Figure Now"; plays Two Old Hippies 12.05

Those who have worked in the music industry often have an idea of what works; singer-songwriter and industry expat Sophia Boro is no exception. On her latest single "I Figure Now", she blends influences from her southern roots, her Suzuki violin training, and her California-born soul to create a track that has all the makings of a pop hit. The song -- which includes Boro's harmonized voice and a touch of glockenspiel -- stands as a preview of what's to come on Boro's upcoming EP, which she's busy perfecting. She'll perform live at Two Old Hippies on December 5th; you can hear her set then. Listen to "I Figure Now" by clicking below. - Will Sisskind


Spazz Cardigan releases single "DOIDOIT"; plays 12.02 at Basement East with Smallpools

Chaz McKinney has had a big year releasing music as Spazz Cardigan, the electro-pop songwriting vehicle which has put out four Spotify New Music Friday featured singles in 2018 alone. The most recent of those singles is "DOIDOIT", an introspective pop jam smacking of Mark Ronson's work. More upbeat than some of his other singles to come out this year, McKinney's "DOIDOIT" asks the question of "Why do we do the things that we do?" in many ways, such as: "Did I see it in a movie? Do I do it just because?" This electric track will be among the many McKinney plays at The Basement East as an opening act for Smallpools, who are releasing their EP So Social at the gig. That show will take place on December 2nd, and it's sure to be a big one. Catch Spazz Cardigan live then; until then, take a listen to "DOIDOIT" below. - Will Sisskind


Jangle-pop artist Patrick Damphier releases single "Pretend It" from upcoming LP

Jangle-pop artist and former Paper Rival member Patrick Damphier has announced his upcoming LP Say I'm Pretty, which drops on 02.01.2019. To kick off the countdown to release day, Damphier has posted the first single from the album, called "Pretend It". The track has a hazy feel much like the early 2010s work of Real Estate; Billboard, which premiered the single, called Damphier's most recent work "broad-ranging" and "intricate". "Pretend It", with its dark post-punk influences, features fellow singer-songwriter collaborators Jessica Lea Mayfield, Richard Swift, and Molly Parden. It's one of a handful of tracks that Damphier chose for Say I'm Pretty out of a catalogue of over 150. Take a listen to "Pretend It" below. - Will Sisskind


Synth-pop trio PreCog play The East Room 11.23

To close out another Black Friday, dark indietronica group Precog will take The East Room's stage on November 23rd as part of a bill with Brooklyn industrial rock group Abbey Death and touring goth ambient rockers from Maryland, Ego Likeness. Precog have spent the year creating new music and playing around Nashville; their latest album, Pareidolia, came out last year to critical and public acclaim. The band takes inspiration from classic dark electronic groups like Depeche Mode and Massive Attack; however, their style holds back from copying tried-and-true genre formulas and instead experiments with implementing classical, industrial, and retrowave elements into their music. What results is music that reaches across timelines to become something that could be timeless. Take a listen to Pareidolia below, and catch them at The East Room on Black Friday. - Will Sisskind


Daisyhead spring back to release "Make Me Feel Safe" from upcoming EP

Over the last several years, Daisyhead have staked out their turf in Nashville's emo scene, releasing albums and touring around the States and in Europe. This past January, however, the band -- led by Michael Roe -- decided to take a break for the sake of their mental, physical, and financial health; they played a "Goodbye For Now" show in March at Cafe Coco. But just in time for the holidays, Daisyhead has sprung back in partnership with mental heath education non-profit Hope For The Day to release new music. The band's upcoming EP I've Been Better covers some of the personal growth and therapy that Roe's experienced over the year. The first track from the EP, "Making Me Feel Safe", kicks off the chorus with the line "I don't wanna go on thinking every breath I take is a mistake", which sets the triumphant tone that Roe and Daisyhead have chosen to take on their road to recovery and renewal. "Making Me Feel Safe" also has a video, which you can watch below. Let's hope that 2019 brings good things to Daisyhead. - Will Sisskind
