Alt-rock band Elasea from the UK have come together to create tunes that are saturated with impressive riffs and satisfying vocals.

Winter 1982 – Worry

Winter 1982 Worry

The first thing I said when I listened to Worry by Winter 1982 was, “YES!” This was my initial reaction for a number of reasons, but mostly  because I was listening to alternative folk – a genre that I love but that isn’t found easily as it’s easy for an alt-folk song to become just […]

Pacific – What Are You Waiting For?


I absolutely adore music driven by piano and keyboard. Sure, I love guitars and drum solos, but there’s something about a pianist that can turn a great song into a work of brilliance. The piano’s magic has been used for years, creating reverence for classical artists such as Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart, and even today, […]

Matinée & Miaoux Miaoux – All the Good Fellas


It is a universal truth that song and dance go together. There are few times you see either one apart from the other, and even if you do, it’s usually a tad awkward.

Carnival Seasons


Carnival Seasons is one of those hip bands. For now, they’re in that garage stage where you take a look at them and it could literally be any type of music that they perform. However, it won’t be long before some label swoops them up to cover in stylists and marketing. They’ll know exactly what […]
