WATCH: The Notionaries “Excited Eyes” Music Video

The Notionaries are a band straight out of the middle of the United States, not that you would know that from their sound. Where you would expect to find banjos and lilting vocals (that is probably the most stereotypical sentence I have ever typed) you will instead hear synthetic 80s pop instrumentals under an almost Young The Giant vocal. Though this is only their first single, having formed less than a year ago, they already know the lyrical path they want to follow. In another shocking turn of events, it…

STREAM: The Academic “Different”

For the past 5 years a little town in Ireland has been getting a lot of press because of a blonde kid with blue eyes. However, Niall Horan is not the only talented musician to come out of Mullingar. Earlier this week, alternative rock band, The Academic began streaming their debut single, “Different,” on Soundcloud. “Different” is super catchy combining all the best qualities from the current leaders of alt-rock into one song.

His voice is pure perfection). Go ahead and give it a watch below! Young the Giant will be on the road through the fall, in support of their latest LP.

ALBUM REVIEW: Chambers ‘Inner Room’

Having never heard of Chambers before writing this review, I wanted to hear what they had to say about their own sound. They describe themselves as realizing early on that they all had strong, but very different voices and instead of trying to conform their different styles to each other, made it into their strength. By this description alone, I could already tell, they create magic. Please follow and like us:
