StrateJacket are thrilled to share the performance video to "Be My Drug," their dynamic new single. This video release comes alongside the announcement of the band's debut EP, StrateJacket (release date: May 10, 2024 via EDGEOUT).

Made up of Jackson Roemers (lead vocals/guitar, 24), Fabian Angel (vocals/bass, 23) and Nate Mangold (drums, 22), their debut EP features singles like the shout-at-the-heavens anthem "Bad Start" (originally featured on EA Sports' NHL24 Soundtrack in tandem with NHL24's Playlist last year) and the ultra-melodic current single "Be My Drug" which include skyscraper-high hooks, both of which overflow with dark humor and contain the sort of electric energy that has hyper-charged the Bay Area's punk and alternative scenes for decades. "I hope we're seen as a response to the overproduced music that's coming out lately," Roemers says. "We want to sound raw and stripped-down." But even with sparse arrangements, the group finds catchy new textures within pop punk. (continue)

The Tangent recently announced the release of the new studio album 'To Follow Polaris' on May 10th, 2024. That's not necessarily a surprise, that's what the band are known for. But at the same time, it's something else too. As Andy jokes, playing on the Jaws strapline, he says "well this time it's actually no personnel". Today, a brand new track aptly titled 'The Single' has been released.

Andy comments of the track: "'The Single' was originally recorded by my previous band Po90 some 25 years ago now, on an album called 'The Time Capsule'. In the spirit of that time capsule, I opened it a quarter of a century later and recorded this updated version of it with new lyrics added to the older version. The old Po90 version was the track that in a way defined what the Tangent would be and giving it the Tangent treatment was a great pleasure. It's a song about the documenting of history and the new ways this is going to happen, both good and bad..." (continue)

Luke Francis, the Seattle-based indie singer-songwriter from Fretland just released his solo indie-folk single, "Go Home," and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

Go Home was written about a day I spent in Palm Springs two winters ago. I was visiting for the first time and I had just had a fight over the phone with my partner at the time. I was realizing that the relationship may not be sustainable anymore and feeling really sad, so I put my headphones in and took a walk, which is when I stumbled onto the giant Marilyn Monroe statue downtown and about fifty tourists gathered around underneath her to look up her statue dress. The whole scene felt so absurd, this weird desert enclave with a bunch of retired people in party mode all around me and this Marilyn spectacle, and the fear I felt about going home slowly surrendering to the feeling of "I have got to get out of there."
