Song of the Day: Space – The Gloomies

California-based indie-pop duo THE GLOOMIES grace their presence on NEW LEASE MUSIC with single ‘Space’.

The new track is a lush reverb-drenched power ballad-esque duet between the Gloomies’ Andy Craig and guest vocalist Madeline Follin (Cults). This special collaboration was mixed by Cults’ songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Brian Oblivion with additional assistance by producer/engineer Shane Stoneback.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – have a listen now!

EP Review: Missing Pieces – Sleeplust

Four-piece band SLEEPLUST put their new-found sound to the test through their latest EP, ‘Missing Pieces’, released last month.

Unlike their previous self-titled EP, which possess a carefree combo of electro pop/rock, ‘Missing Pieces’ boasts a rich downtempo (ish)/electronica drive, making it more of a hypnotic affair.

That deep electro-bass unapologetically takes the stage and goes all in with the introductory effort, ‘Flood Gates,’ before easing up in the following tracks, ‘Organized Mess’, ‘Lights’ and ‘Tiny Raindrops.’

The pot of gold is, by far, the concluding offering ‘Forever and Always’, where their infamous drive is stripped away, making way for an intimate acoustic setting that will helplessly draw in any listener; a great way to end an EP.

Gotta say their decision to shift towards an emotive sound is a massive plus and I reckon this little package will resonate with people who really appreciate good music. Have a listen for yourself.

Must Listens: Flood Gates, Tiny Raindrops, Forever and Always.

New Track: Feeling You – Island Apollo

Acclaimed indie rock collective ISLAND APOLLO released their new infectious track ‘Feeling You’.

Produced by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius), the single features driving drums, layered vocals, upbeat guitar and synth bass riffs. ‘Feeling You’ is an anthem of true loyalty and devotion, Kilpatrick “it’s a song about standing by someone even when they’re at their lowest point: because that’s really when they need you the most”.

Since their inception in 2014, ISLAND APOLLO has established themselves as one of Southern California’s hottest bands who has seen success with being featured on various Spotify curated playlists and VH1, CBS, PBS, USA Network, Fox Sports, and numerous national ads including Sprint and Sobe.

Combining a classic surf vibe with funky urban grooves, ISLAND APOLLO captures the spirit of a West Coast daydream come to life. With members from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, ISLAND APOLLO is authentically Southern Californian and isn’t afraid to show it. The band has been named Orange County’s “Best Pop Artist” from the OC Music Awards.
