SINGLES…

Aloud | "Son of the Dharma"

L.A. music veterans, Aloud, are back with another soulful single:"Son of the Dharma." It isn't quite country, and it isn't quite rock — it's that difficult-to-master combination of the two.

Evangelia & Sleeping Lion | "Windowseat"

Evangelia and Sleeping Lion are a match made in musical heaven. According to Sleeping Lion's Nate Flaks the electro-pop track describes, "the disquieting feeling of returning home and facing the uncomfortable familiarities that come with it."

Pet Envy | Middleman

PET ENVY ★ MIDDLEMAN www.youtube.com

The video for Pet Envy's eerie single "Middleman" puts a sinister spin on how artists navigate the music business. "The middleman wears many different faces in the music industry, which is why we have given everyone paper bag heads in the video," the band said.

Bets | Future Color

To categorize Bets as simply pop would be a gross understatement. Each track, while pop in nature, incorporates elements characteristic of indie rock and synth-pop, creating a spectacle you won't want to miss.
