SoCal alt-rock outfit The Mowgli's recently released the music video for "Fighting with Yourself," featuring Katie Jayne Earl on lead vocals.

"Fighting with Yourself" resonates with '90s pop-punk savors, riding a tight surging rhythm gilded with shimmering guitars and Earl's evocative voice. The Mowgli's garnered immediate success with their first major-label LP, Waiting for the Dawn, leading to performances at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Bottlerock, and other festivals, as well as appearances on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan.

The Mowgli's comprise Joshua Hogan (vocals, guitar), Katie Jayne Earl (vocals), Matthew Di Panni (bass), David Appelbaum (keyboards), and Andy Warren (drums).

Bobby Long | Sultans

In his fourth album, British singer-songwriter Bobby Long opened himself up and and added a splash of unfiltered honesty. "Vocally this album was different for me," he said. "I was really inspired by John Lennon's vocals and the rawness he would get, especially on early Beatles records or his solo stuff. Letting emotion get in the way and kind of showing my true colours. I wanted to be brave, especially on the deeply personal songs so I just left it all out there."
