Stream Ellevator’s ‘Hounds’ for Free

Ellevator‘s Nabi Sue Bersche had this to say about the band’s single ‘Hounds’ in an e-mail; “Most nights I dream I’m being chased. I don’t know what this is a manifestation of – only that it started when I was a little kid, and it began as wolves or wild dogs that pursued me. Those hounds bite at my heels and prevent me from stopping to ask for help. Their howls whistle through my head, drowning out the voices of others who need help too. It’s all consuming,” she wrote.

‘Hounds’ is an acknowledgement that we need each other to survive. There’s safety in numbers. We’ve seen how ‘every man for himself’ turns out, and we need to do better,” she added.

The band’s self-titled EP is out on April 20. They will support Our Lady Peace and Matthew Good following dates at SXSW.

Jordan Rakei Shares the Video for ‘Eye to Eye’

Tom Ewbank, the director of Jordan Rakei‘s ‘Eye to Eye’, had this to say about the clip in a press release.

“We shot the music video on the Welsh coast in the middle of December, which came with a few challenges, not least the temperature of the sea and the weather!” Ewbank explained. “This was the first bit of acting that Jordan had done and I was initially concerned that we may struggle to transform one of the nicest and most considerate people I know into a psychopath. I’m not sure what Jordan’s performance says about him as a person but his portrayal is very convincing and at times terrifying. I’ve always enjoyed working with Jordan and I feel very fortunate to have worked with him on this project, hopefully his fans enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The track is taken from Rakei’s second album Wallflower, out now on Ninja Tune. He also shared a free stream of a remix of the track under his Dan Kye moniker;

The album finished at number two in the “Album of the Year” vote at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and it was also shortlisted for The Australian Music Prize, the Australian answer to the UK’s Mercury Prize.

Stream The Bonnevilles’ ‘Long Runs the Fox’ for Free

Northern Ireland duo The Bonnevilles have shared a free stream of ‘Long Runs the Fox’ from their latest album Dirty Photographs, out on March 16 via Alive Natural Sound Records.

It’s the follow-up to their 2016 effort Arrow Pierce My Heart. The new album is more upbeat than their previous outing.

“There’s an emotion of positivity on these songs, rather than the usual tales of woe.  Most of the tracks are upbeat, or have a positive message, a message of love or even just plain old fashioned sex.  I know others have written a world of songs about those things but we haven’t, so we thought it was our time to jump in,” guitarist Andrew McGibbon Jr. said in a statement.

He’s upfront about the subject matter of ‘Long Runs the Fox’; “It’s a poem of tribute to my wife’s bum.  She’s very pretty and does have a lovely one.”

Hell’s Addiction frontman Ben Sargent had this to say about ‘We’re on Fire’ in an e-mail; “This is the second song from our forthcoming EP and quite simply it’s our best material to date. I’m so proud of the band; we’ve gone up a level right across the board, from musicianship, to performance, to song-writing. We’ve polished a turd and discovered a diamond!! Ha!.”

The Leicester, UK band has been described as being, “the bastard child of an illicit three-way between Skid Row, early-Guns N’ Roses & AC/DC.”

Their last single, ‘We’re on the Road Again’ reached number one of HRH Radio and has received airplay around the world. It’s the second single from their new EP due out in March.

Stream Lanikai’s ‘Wear and Tear’ for Free

Marti Sarbit of Imaginary Cities has formed 60’s soul-influenced five-piece Lanikai during the Winnipeg band’s indefinite hiatus.

They’ve shared a free stream of their track ‘Wear and Tear’.

“‘Wear and Tear’ is about celebrating awkwardness. Though I hide it well, I can get pretty overwhelmed in social settings which sometimes brings out my most awkward conversational habits. It even comes out in the way I show love to the people in my life. “Wear and Tear” takes that lifelong self-embarrassment and cleanses it, viewing it as a positive and accepting that my awkward behaviour is an important part of who I am, and not necessarily something to be feared,” Sarbit said in a statement.


Stream Iskwe’s ‘The Unforgotten’, Featuring Tanya Tagaq, for Free

Winnipeg-born, Hamilton-based artist Iskwe has shared a free stream of her track ‘The Unforgotten’, featuring acclaimed Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq.

She wrote the track following the Canada 150 celebrations in 2017. Iskwe had this to say about the track in an e-mail;

“This is a community song that’s meant to be shared by all people – a round dance where everyone holds the hand of the person next to them, forming a circle that connects us with our ancestors, as one. The current climate of events for Indigenous people is not lost on me, and makes me feel that much stronger releasing this bad boy now,” she wrote.

I felt it was important to remind everyone that while celebrating the wonderful things that make Canada a beautiful and unique place to live, it’s imperative that we remember, honour and acknowledge our dark corners as well.” Iskwe explained.

“I’m proud of who we are as Indigenous people. I’m proud of what we’ve fought for, and how we continue to fight for our culture, our languages, our children, our women, our men, our earth and our water. But I’m also proud of all my non-Indigenous family and friends who continue to fight alongside us. This song is for all of us. Let’s dance together!”
