DARKHER are now premiering the track ‘Lowly Weep’ as the first single taken from the beloved Northern English doom act’s sophomore album The Buried Storm, which has been slated for release on April 15.

DARKHER comment: “The first single ‘Lowly Weep’ is a dark lullaby that speaks to the sorrow within”, explains composer, lyricist, and visual artist Jayn Maiven. “As with the death of winter and the rebirth of spring, it journeys from bleakness into a stirring entity of strength, renewing a connection to the spirit.”

Kristine Leschper (fka Mothers) shares a video for “Picture Window,” the latest from her upcoming album, The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, out March 4th via ANTI- Records. The self-directed video is inspired by the song’s lyric: “It’s like a picture, I think, one where we’re untouched by the future.”

“I was thinking about how effortless it felt to commune with the mysterious as a child, especially in the ‘natural world’ as we call it, as if it is something alien to us,” says Leschper. “I was thinking about my sister, our shared experiences of childhood, and I wanted to create a sonic environment that felt like that. It was obvious to me that the video should embody the same character of discovery, that it should slow me down, get me out into the world to look for something unfolding, and I settled in on the quiet drama of a stream. I shot time lapse photographs and compiled them into video sequences, a meditation on time or timelessness. The resulting video is uncomplicated, things are constantly changing and yet nothing happens; I spin indefinitely in a circle, a stream bubbles on into eternity.”

The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door is a paean to the sensory world. It’s the first music Leschper has released under her given name, having retired the moniker Mothers after eight years of performing and releasing music under it.

King Princess unveils a new song “Little Bother” featuring Fousheé today. King Princess and Fousheé wrote the song alongside Zach Fogarty (A$AP Rocky, Girlpool, Claud), who is also a co-producer.

“I have been a big fan of Fousheé for a while, so when we started DM’ing and eventually set a date in the studio, it was a dream,” King Princess says. “‘Little Bother’ kind of came out of nowhere; Zach had the guitar part and Fou and I just started going off. It became this song about tiptoeing around someone you’ve lost and feeling like a pest. It poses questions to a person who may not be listening at all and I think that’s a beautiful sentiment.”

Additionally, King Princess will begin supporting Kacey Musgraves on her U.S. tour next week.

YAQI has dedicated the video to Asian female creatives, who have been stereotyped and ignored for too long. “Moved and impacted by events since the violence towards the AAPI communities during the pandemic, it is time for us to stand up, speak up, and support each other. It is so touching to see the enormous support from other groups.”

“We wish to show the world and more importantly all the female immigrants and people who feel unseen while working towards their dreams that we see you, support you and you can do it! ‘I’m On It’ is the spirit in many women, we are here to cheer them on!”

Beloved sibling duo BROODS (Georgia and Caleb Nott) are diving into the new year with the release of their rousing new single and video for “Like A Woman” from their forthcoming studio album, Space Island, out February 18 via Island Records Australia/Ingrooves.

“To me this song very much reflects what it feels like to talk about things that have hurt you,” shares Georgia. “You might start off like, ‘I think I’m all right. Although it did hurt. It hurt a lot, actually. I mean, yeah—it really fucking hurt.’ Or at least that’s how I tend to talk about these things, but I’m learning that, when I look a little deeper into the aches and pains, they all come from a place of love. Doing that gives me a way of seeing it in a non-judgmental way… I didn’t have any idea at the time how important of a song it would become to me. I hope people can feel as held as I felt when they hear it.”

The release of “Like A Woman” comes on the heels of the recently announced 2022 Space Island North American Tour

Austin, TX’s Sun June have shared a video for their new single “Reminded,” from the expanded version of their acclaimed record, Somewhere, out tomorrow via Run For Cover and Keeled Scales.

“‘Reminded’ is about being captivated by someone you have a bad history with and wanting to reconcile with past mistakes, despite it being the most unhealthy decision. It’s about gazing narrowly into an old flame… Basically, it’s the sexiest song we’ve ever written,” says Laura Colwell. “The song leans so far into romance that we thought it would be fun to add some sax. Justin got to arrange it all, and then we had local saxophonist David Alvarez (from Medellin Collection, and Hyah!) lay it down.”

Today, the Portland, Oregon based country-soul group The Delines share the third single and music video from their upcoming album, The Sea Drift, which will be released on February 11, 2022 via their new American label home Jealous Butcher Records. The new song, titled “Kid Codeine”,  has a 60’s pop feel and is more upbeat than previous singles; but the song captures the same weary world and deep, wistful emotions that musician and author Willy Vlautin has become known for. The song is accompanied by a music video starring The Delines lead singer Amy Boone, walking around the streets of the band’s hometown of Portland with her hair done up just like the song’s titular character “Kid Codeine”, who has a boyfriend who is a boxer and is described as always wearing a perfect bouffant hairdo “just to walk down the street”.

Speaking to the real life inspiration to the character of “Kid Codeine”, Willy wrote: “Years ago in Los Angeles, Richmond Fontaine was playing at a club downtown called Al’s Bar and after the gig the bartender invited us to a strip joint. She was maybe thirty-five and had a big bouffant and a twenty-one-year-old boyfriend who never said a word. Nothing. It was almost like she had him on a chain. She took us to a place where the dancers come to your table. The woman who came to ours was a friend of hers but a junkie and nodded out and crashed into our table. Drinks spilled everywhere but the bouffanted bartender got hers out in time and she and her boyfriend got up and she said, “I gotta run but bet the third horse in the fifth race at Hollywood Park tomorrow.” Man oh man, she was really wild and she drove the coolest car and nothing seem to phase her. I hadn’t thought of her in years but during the time I was writing The Sea Drift tunes I just woke up one morning and she came to me and I wrote the song.”

“The video is set in my favorite neighborhood of Portland, St. Johns. A neighborhood in the midst of a big gentrification swing. Amy was brave enough to be on camera and we tried to hit the old haunts, a lot of them closed down and ready to be bulldozed. I’m a big boxing fan and I wanted to incorporate Andy Kendall “The Scappoose Express”, one of the most famous boxers of the area. The fight we used was his title shot against world light heavyweight champion Bob Foster. Kendall got knocked out in the fourth but still what a feat. We were lucky enough to work with Gregg Schmitt, who’s one of the coolest cinematographers in the NW, and also a great editor in Zach Jones, who ran with the idea that both characters, Kid Codeine and “The Scappoose Express”, are now just ghosts to a city in a major economic boom and transformation.”
