Night Lights Premiere New Single, “Gimme”

Los Angeles’s indie band Night Lights premiered a new track today. “An ode to the hopeless romantics out there,” “Gimme” is an ethereal slow dance hanging in the space between two people. The ending trails off like words on a nervous tongue; possibility lingers in the air. Vocalist Mau says, “‘Gimme’ is one of the few story songs that we have so far.

STREAM: The Wrecks – “Favorite Liar”

When a friend was given access to a recording studio for a few days, The Wrecks, having been a band together for only one week, decided to write and record their first EP during that stretch. Unbeknownst to them, they weren’t allowed to be in the studio. No consequences came of those three days, just some tracks on a hard drive. Catchy and reeking of mischief, “Favorite Liar” is their first single. It’s nostalgic, it’s punchy, it hits all the right builds. Listen to it after the jump. Want more? Catch The…

GUEST BLOG: On The Current State Of Rock, Los Angeles, And Being Who You Are

When I was asked to write a guest blog for Infectious Magazine, countless ideas came to mind. In the end, I decided I’d really like to shed some light on how we feel about the music industry and the scene of today.
