Comprised of 5 new authentic tunes with big, heavy, fast paced guitars and a driving, punchy rhythm section, “64 Women” puts a fresh hypnotic spin on yesterday’s and today’s iconic rock eras with a vast array of multifaceted elements that are contributed by each band member, and shines through as a whole collectively as a solid chemistry with each track that plays out.

With lyrical concepts that delve into story-telling methods that widely range from a series of topics, she never fails to grab your undivided attention with her ability to tell a compelling story and keep you on the edge of your seat. The band’s rhythm section, comprised of female-drummer/backup vocalist, Coralie Hervé, along with bassist/backup vocalist, Joey Southern, cruises through the tracks with loud, vicious tempos, dynamic fills, and rhythmic riffs that tie each song together and bring an unwavering presence of heavy energy to the band’s overall style on the EP. It’s a record that will feed the insatiable hunger of their current fan base, and amaze new listeners that discover them for the first time and leave them all hankering for more.

Soulfully melodic and upbeat, we get a refreshingly fun experience with every measure in the new Nat Smithson & Nights On Mayfair single “What Life Wants For Me.”

Conveying a positive message and a very versatile vocal range that is charismatic and undeniably multifaceted, Nat Smithson brings her soul-infused voice to the forefront with an edge of Pop that is melodically driven by the rest of the band. The song starts with a sweet and subtle buildup with a crafty piano riff, but when Nat starts delving into the first verse of this track, it’s off to the races and she never lets up.

The vocal melodies are appropriately placed and present natural overdubs as opposed to post production compression or a plethora of auto tune. This song has authenticity, and a blend of talented musicians that don’t need today’s overproduced theatrics to put out an intelligently crafted and well executed song.

There’s also an anthemic multi-genre blend that gives Nights On Mayfair endless likability factors and highly contributes to the song’s overall versatility.

Artist Review: Winston-Salem – “Hell Is A Turnpike” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

It’s rare in today’s music era when you can run into truly well written songs. Songs where the actual songwriting is priority, and an effective showcasing of true musicianship factors are present. One of those rare gems is the Winston-Salem single “Hell Is A Turnpike,” a group from the UK that is really hitting the ground running.

Known for their very charismatic Alt-Americana signature sound, “Hell Is A Turnpike” makes use of great guitar progressions, catchy vocal melodies and a 90’s style songwriting structure that reminds you of Gin Blossoms with Tom Petty singing lead vocals. The guitars blend together beautifully as they interchange between a solid crunch and clean acoustic textures, and really compliments the authentically versatile vocals that are driven by heartfelt lyrics and melody arrangements.

The band encompasses an indie sound but also has elements of today’s modern production value that really gives the band relevance and their own identity. They’re the type of group where when you hear one of their tunes – you know it’s them. They have a style that they can truly call their own and it’s something their fans can identify with, as well as every music fan that discovers them.

Winston-Salem is definitely into something. And “Hell Is A Turnpike” is a great introductory track if it’s your first time hearing them. You’ll definitely be looking forward to their upcoming releases after hearing this track. You’ll be glad we sent you to them.

Press Release: Bound By None releases “The Descent” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you love old school hardcore and early 2000s Punk with today’s elite production value, then Bound By None‘s “The Descent” will punch you in the throat.

Going back to the glory days of high-velocity power chords and gang vocals, “The Descent” is absolute proof that punk is not dead, and never was in the first place. Armed with a punchy rhythm section, glass cutting guitar progressions and melodic vocals that have a razor’s edge, Bound By None delivers up elements of old school punk (ie: Suicide Machines – “Destruction By Definition,” The Descenedants, Pennywise…) and gives the genre amazing continuity and a fresh face.

The band is extremely tight and well rehearsed. We have a drummer that cruises through each measure with precision, accuracy and relentless energy. And that’s the key word for this band – ENERGY. Lots of it. This song is definitely one for the books if you’re looking for the next best sports-arena anthem, or even perhaps a wrestling match. Either way, this song grabs you by the neck and refuses to let go.

Seriously, if you’re into true punk rock without the “indie” or “pop” flavors, then Bound By None‘s “The Descent” will be your new favorite track. And this band will be at the top of your favorites. The single is currently available on digital music retailers and streaming platforms.

Press Release: Airwaves Spectacular – “Out In The Distant Black” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky & Broken 8 Records

Back in 2017, we had the joy of hearing Airwaves Spectacular’s debut, self-titled record. It was an album that seemingly came out of nowhere, with the band having formed only a few months before its release. Packed with passion, enthusiasm, and will to create, the band had created a record of alt-pop and modern rock anthems that notched up comparisons to Muse, Evanescence, and the Human League, an impressive start to the young outfit.

A musical trio comprised of Cyrus Keefer, Kayla Rae, and Chris Tolentino, Airwaves Spectacular are now back with a brand new EP, bringing their 80’s influenced sound back into the spotlight with three original tracks and noticeable artistic growth. Titled ‘Out In The Distant Black’, the new EP is three neatly packaged tracks that carry on the spirit of their debut.

Led by opener “Standing Still”, a vibrant pop track that shines through glistening guitar work and an immutable energy, the new EP is clearly here to turn some heads. Second number and title track “Out In The Distant Black” is more atmospheric in nature, building from light tones and constant percussion that drive the song forward while letting the vocals shine in ethereal fashion.

Closing number “Rest Near Stone,” the lead single from the release and arguably the most infectious track, is the one to wait for. It’s an upbeat anthem that ties in the band’s love of pop and forward thinking nature, layering organic compositions with flicking digital flourishes to produce a sound that is quickly becoming their hallmark.

All told, the new EP is a real hidden treasure at the moment, and it’s a release that certainly belies the band’s short time together.
