Nostalgic for days spent in high school blasting anthemic emo music through your headphones as you walk down the hallway to your next class? We feel the same way too, and wish we could go back to those carefree days when you didn’t have to worry about making ends meet. Giant Sky’s latest album Not Today via Bloody Sunset Records is an instant nostalgia train, reminding the listener of their days spent being a carefree adolescent. 

Stream/Download: Not Today album 

Previously featured on iGuitar and on RCRD LBL with song ‘Snow’, we mentioned: “Lyrics like “The world goes crazy, but you and I remain the same/ There’s no way that I can go into the void of my own” spreads a message of light & connection in times of darkness. One can easily fold and let physical isolation rob you of your sanity and happiness. Giant Sky’s ‘Snow’ reminds one that no true connection is ever lost if it is real.”

Download on iTunes: Not Today album

Listening to this entire album one will be two tissues away from destroying a packed box for sure. This album covers feelings of isolation, acceptance and finding a home to call your own. A lot of heart is poured into this work and its energetic production is evident in each track and essentially is what a memorable indie-rock hit consists of. Let your hair down and shake along to the beat of Giant Sky – A band with character and worth the listen in a time of much chaos.

December 1, 2020 Alt-pop trio Polary release upbeat song ‘Nothing In Common’

Alt-pop trio Polary release upbeat song ‘Nothing In Common’

Since bursting onto the scene with blistering singles “Nothing” and “Losing Sleep,” electrifying alt-pop three-piece Polary continue to impress with their latest release “Nothing In Common. Based in Cheltenham, this vivacious young band are masters of the alt-pop genre, seamlessly blending the sound of heavy guitars and nostalgic synths against rousing pop vocals and effortlessly wrapping it all together in stellar production value. This new release is the perfect showcase for their sound that can be heard in full effect in lockdown-inspired hit Nothing In Common.

Speaking about the single frontman Harry explains “I was consciously writing something really different lyrically this time. It’s been a mixture of finding the right sound to embody this, and also putting to bed anything I wanted to say in the previous singles. “Nothing In Common” is about young romance and the reckless attitude that goes with it. You think everything at that point in your life is so big, and recalling that feeling felt right for this single.”

Having already landed a coveted slot on the Neu Stage at 2000 Trees Festival, racked up performances alongside The Faim, Circa Waves, The Beaches and YONAKA , whilst also getting nods from Rock Sound and Upset magazine, this young trio have proven themselves quick off the mark when it comes to industry recognition and if Nothing In Common” is anything to go by, this is sure to continue!

November 23, 2020 Ambient dream-pop act Easter Island performs live in Japan

Ambient dream-pop act Easter Island performs live in Japan

Formed in Athens, GA, Easter Island is an ambient dream-pop act fronted by brothers Ethan and Asher Payne (guitar and keys) and Ryan Monahan (guitar). Their sound has been likened to Explosions in The Sky, My Bloody Valentine, DIIV, Pedro the Lion, and more. The band’s falsetto vocals and panoramic guitars are countered by its powerful rhythm section – John Swint (drums), and Justin Ellis (bass) add gravity to an otherwise weightless sound.

Throughout Easter Island’s career the band has had the opportunity to share the stage with David Bazan, Cindy Wilson (of The B52s), The Low Anthem, Bully, Wild Nothing, White Rabbits, Valley Maker, and more. The band’s debut record Frightened (2012), led to a number of television syncs, including ABC’s “Off The Map”, MTV’s “Awkward”, and a recent live appearance on CW’s Dynasty which aired in 2019.

The past six years have seen the band working in various studios all over the country on their new record while touring the US at large, including appearances at SXSW, CMJ, Treefort, Underground Music Showcase, Secret Stages, and Athfest in their hometown of Athens. They traveled as far as Japan to work on new material and to film the music video for the single, “Island Nation”, which was premiered by Paste Magazine. The band’s follow-up single, “Always Room For Another”, premiered on Billboard in fall 2018. In 2020 the band found itself spread out among five different cities and so they leaned into the separation and produced five music videos – featuring each member in their respective city.

Produced and engineered by Ryan Monahan, the songs received additional engineering from Mike Albanese at Espresso Machine Recording and mastering from Joel Hatstat at High Jump Media in Athens, GA. The new record draws on influences ranging from Sufjan Stevens and Max Richter, to The Never Ending Story. The band completed a successful Kickstarter campaign in early 2020 and will release their sophomore LP, Take All The Time You Think You Need, in December, 2020.
