Terribly Yours Releases New Single "A Love That Don't Diminish"

Terribly Yours is an outfit from Brooklyn that creates charming indie synth pop to soothe the soul. Their latest single “A Love That Don’t Diminish” builds a shrine for human relationships, offering cultural commentary on the need to give loved ones room to grow. “We were young when we started out / With a lot of stuff to figure out / Don’t need no doctor don’t call the police / We’re all changing again” front man Sean Bones points out in the catchy chorus. Though the track feels sonically lighthearted, it forces self-reflection upon the listener. This is really the beauty of Terribly Yours. Their work strikes a pleasant balance between fun and thoughtful. Be sure to catch their next show at Alphaville on April, 20th.

Band on the rise: Shinning Mirrors' old-school garage with a modern pop twist

The word "music revival" normally implies two sorts of bands: acts that try and recreate authentic facsimiles of history, and others that hold a mirror to the past, drawing inspiration from it while opening fresh dialogues and contributing something new to the conversation. Brooklyn-based Shining Mirrors is the latter kind of band, reflecting their influences in gritty garage and indie rock and yet possessing a sound whose time period is much more difficult to place. The track's quality pop songwriting is in part reminiscent of the overlooked Scottish genius of the '80s Lloyd Cole & the Commotions. Check out  below "Everybody is Christ," (a track that ends with a quote of a quote, the Ramones quoting the Rivieras) and see what I mean. - Olivia Sisinni

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





Sundaes Releases New Track "Smoke Signals"

Sundaes offers a rendition of early oughts’ indie rock that proves a breath of fresh air for the broader independent music scene. The second new track “Smoke Signals” off their upcoming EP is no exception. Reminiscent of greats like The Strokes or The New Pornographers, it’s a guitar-heavy number with a driving rhythm and laid-back, meandering vocal melody that sticks to the brain. The new work impressively recycles the sonic traits of its influences while remaining fresh and relevant in its conceptual undertakings. Stay tuned for more details on their newest effort and upcoming shows.

Gem and Eye bring their stylish synthpop to Rockwood tonight (04.18)

Since we had a couple of sunny days in April above 70 degrees, we can officially say that the hunt for the breeziest single of summer 2017 has begun! NYC super-young, brother-sister duo Gem & Eye seems a serious contender for the title with their single 'Echo' (video streaming below). The track offers a delicious synthpop take on the sophistipop of the '80s (think Prefab Sprout), and introduces us to the uber smooth, heart conquering vocals of Harley Pace. There's some promise here... You can see Gem & Eye live at Rockwood tonight, April 18th. - Photo by Juliane Leigh Forsyth





New Psychic Teens EP Available for Streaming

Gloomy melodies thrust forward with steel-cutting guitar and deep-tunneling backend, HEX, the new EP from Psychic Teens, immediately perks one's ears. Officially due out this Friday, April 21 via Hex Records, you can now stream the record in its entirety at CLRVYNT. The five-song EP is electrified in a moody, noisy clash between bleak resignation and resilience. Hovering that threshold between despair and aggression, the band keeps moving. They'll be celebrating its arrival at Boot & Saddle on Friday, May 5, with Tiny Vices and Dulls.
