Release Radar #100

We’re at release radar 100, and you should know the drill by now, here are 5 new releases!

I Can’t Drive – Crawlers

Starting with acoustic guitars, the band quickly adds vocals to the mix, flowing forward carried by the drums. The chorus takes things to a louder level, with emotional vocals. Getting back to the dreamy flow, the song goes through the second verse. The chorus blast out. The bridge takes things a lot slower, with the song going full blast for the last chorus.

Lyrically the song is an emotional story about the protagonist mistakes and failures

What I like about this song are the emotional vocals on the choruses, giving the whole song a haunting feeling.

Tell Me – The Dreaded Laramie

Opening with distorted guitars, the song quickly adds the vocals. The song flows forward to the chorus, keeping things calm and dreamy. The second verse keeps the style of the first, flowing towards the chorus. The bridge goes the instrumental route, before the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is about nostalgia, and wanting to go back to one’s roots.

What I like about this song is the cozy feeling, making this a summer jam.

Asteroids! And Where To Find Them – Paperweight

Starting with vocals and ukulele, the song slowly adds more instruments, going all out with electric instruments on the chorus. The second verse keeps the energy going, and the chorus comes around again. Going instrumental in the bridge, the song slows down slightly before one last chorus and the return of the ukulele

Lyrically the song talks about all the good things in life and nostalgia for the past.

What I like about this song is its upbeat nature and energy.

What Have You Done For Me Lately?- Emma Blackery

Starting off with fuzzy guitars and energetic screams by Emma, she quickly adds her vocals. Going all out on the chorus with both the fuzz and her vocal energy. The second verse follows the same pattern, kicking it up on the chorus. The bridge adds a short break but quickly gets to one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about being used and stepping up in a one way relationship

What I like about this song is the fuzzy garage rock feel, which gives me “White Stripes” vibes.

This Kiss – Alex Lahey

Starting with Alex, her vocals and a distorted guitar. The song quickly goes all out on the chorus. Keeping the drum and distorted guitar going on the second verse. The song keeps flowing to the second chorus. Turning things down for the bridge, the song builds to the last chorus.

Lyrically the song is basically a love song, with Alex describing how happy she is to have someone in love with her.

What I like about this song is the hook of the chorus and the distorted guitars.
