Top 5 New Indie Rock Week 12
1- To Kill a King
Song: The Problem of Evil
Why? With a mature and deep topic, we must drop down our guards and truly listen and aim to understand the why? – For the song speaks of the anger within many of the prayers unanswered, the evil growing and the false prophets who claim to know the truth causing an inner struggle in the human existence. But it reminds us that there’s more than that, there’s value and hope in your neighbors as hate and evil arises, the good starts shining brightest and we know there’s more than religion, faith and prayer for life is made up daily through love and acceptance.
2- Black Pistol Fire
Song: Hard Luck
Why? Powerful indie rock duo from Austin, Texas that together bring more electrifying energy and spirit than most bands nowadays. If you don’t believe me, simply listen to the drums and guitar become one as they allow those indie rock perfect vocals to take charge and give the soundscape shape and form through lyrics that blend a working class vibe while maintaining the rebellious nature of rock. Plus I am extremely proud that they are from Texas :D.
Song: A Friend
Why? Powerful and mesmerizing music video that showcases the battle within all of us in a soundscape made up of indie rock magic with light electronic undertones that make it stand out from the crowd. The way the track flows through the airwaves to our ears connects with something inside us as we are reminded of our inner daily struggle between the me, myself and I. We are shown through the music video how the one that causes the most pain to us is simply found when we look at the mirror at our reflection.
4- The Weeks
Song: Talk like that
Why? With a unique blend of old school vibes and modern experiences and tunes they remind us of the beginnings of another Nashville band that’s already in the big leagues, the Kings of Leon. They bring their personal charm and look right into the soundscape of “Talk like that” as it unfolds and becomes one with the music video creating an amazing must have/must listen experience that every music lover should have for this is what rock was meant to be.
5- L.A. Spring
Song: Heart and Soul
Why? From the UK with a name that reminds us of the sunny streets of Los Angeles, we are hypnotized by mature lyrics speaking of our “Heart and Soul”. Through a proper listen of the track the soundscape engulfs us and delivers a spirit of struggle, fight and overcoming all the things against you in order to be more than what you were the day before. Motivational and beautifully delivered with a proper union of genuine indie pop/rock sounds and enchanting vocals.
