The Technicolors – “Space Cadet” (single premiere)

A year ago, The Technicolors burst on the scene with their EP, Ultraviolet Disguise, which received some US-wide airplay and coverage. The EP was an electrifying mixture of Muse’ electric rock and the anthemic pop-rock of Snow Patrol. Not surprisingly, it put the Phoenix-based quartet on the national radar.

Programm – “A Torrid Marriage of Logic and Emotion”

When Programm first arrived on the scene in January 2015 with their stunning debut single “Like the Sun” and that was shortly proceeded by the EP of the same name, it was easy to label the Toronto quartet as another dreamy electro-pop band.

Michael O’Shea, who goes by the […]

In addition, they’re not just musicians but storytellers, as evidenced by the awesome yet creepy lyrics of “Black Swan”. It’s refreshing […]
