Totemic – Nightfall – Song Premiere

Totemic – Nightfall – Song Premiere

Familiar Wild – We Better Run – Single Review

Not often does a band’s name and their music seem to have so much in common. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Familiar Wild is inspired by the well-known, yet sometimes threatening, urban environment of the cities that have cut a swath through the lush and tempestuous landscapes surrounding their region.

PREMIERE: Ottawa’s Bearings release ‘Home Is…‘ EP

PREMIERE: Ottawa’s Bearings release ‘Home Is…‘ EP

The second release from the Capital City Quintet, Home Is… plays with an interesting pop punk composite, falling somewhere between the hair-flip days of the Mayday Parade generation and the newer finger-pointing, air-punching TSSF/Neck Deep sound. It’s aggressive yet understanding with an aired connotation of new wave lazy rock reminiscent of bands like Turnover and other Run [...]
