Daniel Pearson | "Little Lies"
Saint in the City PR
An emotional release for the weekend, the musician is baring it all in his latest release. The single explores what happens when a relationship evolves overtime. A combination of gospel-soul and country, the tune is a delight to the ears and a tug on the ol' heartstrings of listeners everywhere.

A Delicate Motor | "Durham"
This little band is doing big things thanks to their experience on the road. The video for their latest track (see above) comes from an improvisation between frontman Adam Petersen and drummer Ben Sloan at a recent house show. Sloan was also invited to perform with The National as a back-up drummer after the band's recent tour with the group.
⭐️ PREMIERE ⭐️ | ELZ AND THE CULT | "Monochrome"
Just like the name of the song suggests, this black and white beaut of a video plays just like a dream. It comes from a passionate trio from Istanbul. Read below for thoughts on the track:
'Monochrome is about being in the grey area and not wanting to get out from there. I have always had this terrifying stage fright and anxiety and before i released the album, i was in this area of not knowing what's gonna happen next and i wanted to stay in that state-of-mind. The song is all about that so we released it as the final single off our debut album and it will also make a great bridge to what's coming next for our band.'

⭐️ PREMIERE ⭐️ | Kate Renegade | New Unquiet Life
An album that is full of life and various styles, it is a lovely return from the band. The Chicago band's heavy pop/rock vibe bleeds through on every track while still giving listeners something unexpected. Just as the musicians are unapologetic for their earnest sound, we are unrelenting in our obsession of it!
The Split Seconds | Counterfeit Reality
Effective Immediately PR
Add a little punk into your playlist with this DC-based group's new release. Their sophomore effort is reflecting on what they see as a culture in crisis. See what their thoughts are on the town where our government is run, and maybe find yourself singing and smirking along with the observations.
Lowhency Pierre | EP 1
Last but not least this week, we have a R&B/funk/indie rock EP from a group of musicians based out of Brooklyn, New York. The lead singer is taking on the topic of depression while being black, mixing a variety of influences into a powerhouse debut. We could say more, but why spoil it when we're encouraging you to dive in and explore this moving project yourself?
