"Prophecy of the Dragon," the new single from musical-act Julian Casablancas + The Voidz is here to soundtrack your summer months. You'll love the hard riffs, poetic lyrics, and rhythmic aptitude.

Of the new song the band says; "The track started with a very simple question.... what would it feel like if God whispered into your ear "you are my most magnificent creature." What would that feeling sound like? What would its bassline be? With that Beardo blew The Voidz conch shell and we assembled where we had been summoned for previous quests. The response? From the fiery bones of eternity, the dragon's voice, awakened after millennia in waiting, spewed forth a sonic fist of impertinence in the shape of a new pirate anthem where nothing is what it seems, nor is it otherwise - Prophecy Of The Dragon."

Southern California rockers Juniper Honey just released a brand new single called "Looking At You". To celebrate we asked frontman Jake Hesse to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

For "Looking At You," I had all the music written for a bit and had melody ideas but was just hitting a random writer's block when trying to put some lyrics to it. I would constantly jam the chords I had and the little instrumental ideas and knew I couldn't just ignore the song, but it kind of took a while to finish the final thing. Then once I had the idea it all just flowed out of me at once, which is a rare but special thing that happens sometimes for every writer. The story I had for it is actually a little embarrassing in a way, to be honest. I was just out grocery shopping one day and kinda had that awkward eye contact moment with a girl and never went over to talk to her, and then for some reason I just thought about it for longer than usual. When I got home to my guitar, I just wrote about that moment but generalized it a bit while also keeping in random specifics like the "flowers and groceries" line. Once I finished up the song I brought it over to Donovan's apartment and he immediately decided it was worth our time and the rest of the guys agreed. (continue)
