Buzzing Electro Act Opāru Releases New Single, “Ghost To Follow”

Los Angeles-based electro act Opāru has made a triumphant return with her latest song, “Ghost To Follow.” “Ghost” is a poignant and resplendent single that finds Opāru waxing existential about the innate human experience of yearning to belong, finding a sense of purpose, and being accepted. Driven by passionate piano chords and Opāru’s (aka Dianna St. Hilaire) ethereal vocals, “Ghost To…

Tonight: Dentist

Fuzzy, buzzing indie pop act Dentist will be visiting Buffalo tonight. Their unique, surf-punk-tinged, indie-pop aesthetic is driven by the ethereal vocals of singer Emily Bornemann, coupled with smart drums and California-esque guitar crunch. Having recently been named by SXSW as one of “2018’s top 10 bands,” they’ve just released their third LP, Night Swimming, earlier this year. Joining…

Harrison – “Atmosphere (feat. Daniela Andrade)”

Harrison‘s “Atmosphere” is the second single off of his upcoming LP. The song features fellow Canadian and frequent collaborator Daniela Andrade. We dig the tasteful layering of vocals into the track, mixed with Harrison’s interesting ear for percussion. Sit back and let the swelling synths and stuttering drum work wash over you. If you want…

The Band Ice Cream – “Your Guy”

Last time we checked in with the curiously-named The Band Ice Cream, we were waxing poetic about the spastic, upbeat indie rock of “Sand Dunes.” This time around, we’re digging “Your Guy.” It seems here that the Ice Creamers have refined their sound ever-so-slightly… They retain the rough edges of their earlier material while wrapping…

Beerwine King – “Shot in the Head”

Beerwine King is an interestingly-named Oakland act whose jarring “Shot in the Head” is certainly worth a listen. Taking notes from discordant kings Pile (as well as a healthy dose of Pixies style art-rock), “Shot in the Head” is the perfect mix of angst and start/stop instrumentation. Most notable here are Beerwine King’s throaty, sardonic vocals….

Pink Skies – “Passing Me By”

Pink Skies songs were never even meant to be heard… Keep that in mind while you groove along to the synthy-indie sentiment embedded in “Passing Me By.” Inspired by his tenure in indie and punk bands, coupled with little bit of vintage psych rock and r&b influences, Arieh Berl got himself creatively inspired and dusted off…

Rozlin – “The Hole”

LA-based rapper Rozlin sold us hard with the phat, quirky flow on her latest offering, “The Hole.” Featuring an equally-kitschy music video, Rozlin spitfire-raps about the joys of living in the moment. Fans of Kreyshawn or Nicki Minaj will definitely find some common ground here, especially with Rozlin’s penchant for deadpan delivery. Caution: this one bangs HARD…

Tonight: Giant Peach

Self-proclaimed diarycore/wraithcore act Giant Peach will be hitting up Mohawk Place today. The trio has just released But You Made Me Such A Beautiful Thing, a sprawling, sonic evolution for the Brooklyn act, who have traded out their raw indie-punk sound for something more subtle – think Rainer Maria or Hop Along. Joining them are noisy Montreal…
