ARO debuts perilous single "House Of Lies," plays Hotel Cafe 09.26

Aimée Osbourne’s project ARO has released a new single titled “House Of Lies” that tip-toes on the sinister and reveals a soundscape that is a pop, industrial blend so edgy. Osbourne’s vocals crawl to the beat of the track and provide a soft touch to the otherwise sharp clanking sounds that accompany an atmosphere of peril; a dangerous sort of love is evoked through the music. “House Of Lies” is part of Osbourne’s upcoming record Vacare Adamare, set for release October 30th. Aimée Osbourne will be streaming live from Hotel Cafe on September 26th. Stream this synth-heavy track below for a dangerous type of song. - René Cobar

   

Rhye lets love win in new single "Helpless"

California may be filled with the smog and fumes of a state—and world—on fire, but there is always room for soulful appreciation of loved ones and devotion to better times. Rhye debuts a velvety R&B single titled “Helpless” that pays tribute to that devotion, and within the track’s groove exists all of it. Rhye uses his fine falsettos to evoke a positive outlook driven by the intimacy he shares with his partner Genevieve Medow-Jenkins who also directed the music video streaming below. Rhye offers us a song and theme that are both long-lasting and cooling, reminding us that falling in love is still a cure sought after and that its best delivery method is music. Stream “Helpless” below for music soothing enough to inspire a better outlook. - René Cobar, photo by Emma Marie Jenkinson

   

Joni recalls glowing memories in new single "Orange"

Joni Fatora, or simply, Joni offers us a world filled with luminescent memories that peek through a haze of upbeat indie folk in her new single “Orange.” Using elements of synth-pop and folk, Joni recalls her days living in New York City, or rather the feeling those days evoked, how the light of those times glows within her still. “Orange” is the perfect track for nostalgic nights and daydream-filled mornings: the subtle electric guitars, sustained synths, and dreamy vocals of Joni all move like waves to a rhythm sharp and penetrating. The dramatic shift in direction that “Orange” takes during its midsection is as memories that come to life: one day, we remember them one way, and the other another, but all the same, they remain beautiful. Stream Joni’s “Orange” below for something worth remembering. - René Cobar

Luna Shadows goes retro with new single "The Nineties"

Today it's easy to view the Nineties how people then viewed the Sixties: A magical era of colorful pixels, modern fashions, and hope for a better future. But as Luna Shadows reflects in her new single "The Nineties", the decade had its fair share of insecurity, violence, disease, and despair. Shadows uses that roller coaster of anxiety to explore her past as well as her present fears, balancing her uneasiness against the poppy electronic music that seems ripped straight from the sound banks of a Super Nintendo. The retro game aesthetic makes a big appearance in the music video, which -- in keeping with her DIY brand -- Shadows filmed in her home in front of a green screen. "The Nineties" will appear on Shadows' upcoming debut album "Digital Pacific". Take a look at the music video for "The Nineties" below. - Will Sisskind
