Strange Heights, “Dive Into Fire” (single premiere)

Strange Heights, “Dive Into Fire” (single premiere)

There aren’t many bands whose names mirror their music. Sonic Youth and Lush come immediately to mind. We can now add Strange Heights. It’s not that the Chicago sextet’s music is strange in the bizarre sense. It’s not creepy or eerie. While Strange Heights don’t write music that would be considered formulaic, it is not really experimental. Their music, however, is […]

Loud Forest – “Under Your Spell”

Loud Forest – “Under Your Spell”

Three weeks ago, we were introduced to married duo Rachel and Bernard Chadwick, who are better known as Loud Forest. At the time, they had released their debut single, “Drag Me/Don’t Drag Me”, a catchy art-pop song that merged together pop, soul, and indie rock.

The feeling of isolation is something we all have experienced at least once, if not many times, in our lives.

All of these possibilities are communicated in Diana Ebe‘s new single, “Elusive Pleasure”, which we are immensely […]
