MAX RAD - Oh My Brother (Official Video)




MAX RAD - Oh My Brother (Official Video)

Following on from revealing his recent single Oh My Brother last month, London-based artist Max Rad has today returned with the track's accompanying official video. Sharing an insight in to the clip, Max explains it comes form a time and period where he never felt quite in control of his head-space following the loss of his dad. The video sees Max try and escape his friends and environment but as he proves, it's a little harder than one would first think. Speaking on the track Max said: I wrote Oh My Brother in a time where I felt everything was changing around me, and was out of my control. The feeling of being left behind in an emotional place as everyone else moves on, and battling with that internally. We had just suffered a huge loss in my family (we lost my Dad to cancer) and my mum was moving from the place where I grew up. It was hugely unsettling for me at the time, leaving so many memories behind and feeling so uprooted. It feels like a snapshot in time for me, I was pretty low and I felt as if I was bringing the people around me down as well.” Take a watch for yourselves below.

Taken from their second EP, ‘Weirdo’, due out 21st February, the track is a complete sound bath of vibrancy with its driving chords and high fluttered melodies, all culminating towards its energising finale. Speaking about the track in more detail the band’s singer Alison Rachel explains its concept: “Still Here is simply about feeling the daily pressures that come with dealing with anxiety and depression and doing your best to hold things together when you really just can’t anymore. Although lyrically it’s the most personal song that I’ve written, it’s turned into a really upbeat indie rock track that’s good for dancing!” Take a listen for yourselves below.

Vistas - Teenage Blues




Vistas - Teenage Blues

As a kid I'll always remember spending my days, counting down the hours until I turned 18. The problem is, the clock never stocks ticking and before you know it you're steadily hitting 30, all the while life continuing to race by quicker and quicker with each day that passes. Taking on the subject of that often difficult transitioning period between your teenage years and adulthood, where you're likely to feel lost and confused, Scotland's Vistas have returned today with their new single Teenage Blues. Speaking about the track, frontman Prentice said: "Teenage Blues is a song about the transition from your teenage years into adulthood. The verses show a conversation between to people discussing all the changes that happen at this time of your life.These are all problems that weigh on the mind of people trying to take the next steps in their lives, and the chorus addresses this. The chorus answers the fear of the changes by showing that there is a constant within them saying: "I will always be there”". Set to appear on the band's debut album next year we get another blistering insight in to their infectious array of melodies and colourful deliverance. Jump right in for yourselves below.

Patrick Martin - Wonder Years




One hit wonder's don't flow in Patrick Martin's vocabulary as the LA-based artist returns with his latest rhythm-perfected masterpiece, Wonder Years. Giving in to the guiltiest of pleasures in a pop sensibility sense, his new single is about as a wide-screened as they come with its euphoric choruses and infectious melodies, all quick to unravel through its mind altering sound. The track is taken from his recently released 4-track EP of the same name. Speaking about the release, Martin says, “I often find myself reminiscing about young love and all of the beautiful and tragic experiences that come with it. Wonder Years (EP) is me trying to come to terms with the phrase “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”. My first heartbreak really shook me to my core, but at the same time, it brought out my creative nature. This body of work is simply my personal stories of coping with lost love and the chaos it brings to the soul". Take a listen for yourselves below.
