Fans of Angelspit and Lorelei Dreaming successfully crowdfunded the EP 'BANSHEE' in 6 hours. Now they have their sights set on a new stretch goal - if they reach $5000 they'll do another track, a video and host a free party in Chicago for all backers.
Produced and composed by Angelspit's Zoog Von Rock, BANSHEE is Lorelei Dreaming’s debut EP with 5 tracks and 10 remixes, set to release on May 1, 2017 - a celebration of the Dystopian Future.
Lorelei Dreaming spent 2015 and 2016 recording and performing with Angelspit, Velvet Acid Christ, Go-Fight and St. Griselda.
"The future is uncertain - but what is certain is that music and dance will continue to be integral to our community in the face of adversity. Now more than ever, we need to celebrate our diversity and come together through dance and music. The grim future never sounded so good!"
"We both love Gary Numan, Goldfrapp, Depeche Mode - future pop with a twist of darkness, which we call Dystopian Future Pop. We're working to create music based around what Laura naturally does, vocals that are a little sultry and ethereal."
- Zoog Von Rock, Angelspit
The songs of Lorelei Dreaming hinge on mischief, dissent, pushing out ever further, and at times get glibly political.

Frontman Ronnie Radke previously told Alternative Press that the album is "a huge left turn. It sounds like nothing we've ever done. Every song is very vibey. There's more feeling in it."
He continued, "We're challenging ourselves now more than we ever have in the weirdest ways possible, because you would think writing the craziest solo or riffs would be the challenging part. But the challenging part is trying to stick to a theme and not go all over the place like we would normally do."
Falling in Reverse will embark on a busy touring schedule in support of the album. The band is currently on tour in the US with Issues and Motionless in White.

Svart Records have set January 27th as the release date for Pintandwefall's highly anticipated fifth album, Red and Blue Baby.
Based in Tampere, Finland, Pintandwefall have prepared their fifth album together with producer Risto Ylihärsilä, who has grabbed the band’s lo-fi aesthetics and steered the group even further, making the rough diamond harsher. The songs on Red and Blue Baby have been created during weekend sessions over the last 18 months, and the first single "Seasimularo" was released in May 2015 already. View the video exclusively HERE.
Pintandwefall - Komi, Manner, Luhtasaari, and Yli-Rinne - point out that their decade-long career has moulded the band and its status into what it currently is. Their s creative vision is bursting with intensity and short on explanations: "Playing together for over ten years, making many of our artistic visions reality and leaving many others be, have made our little group so tight that we often find ourselves even spending Christmas holidays together. In the end, you always return to where you started."
Svart Records is set to release Red and Blue Baby on vinyl, digital, and CD on January 27th. The band will embark on a Finnish tour soon, and continues with a Swedish tour in April
Meet 21 year old star in the making, Tyni – a singer-songwriter, but no winsome girl perched on a stool with an acoustic guitar. Describing her music as being “like jumping into my very own Wonderland where each song's a different chapter of my very own fairytale” Tyni’s singing, and song-writing, is state of the art pop music.
Fighter is the first track to be released from Tyni’s forthcoming debut EP of the same name. Alongside the atmospheric, glitchy title track and its remix by Frank Ocean collaborator Troy Noka, the Fighter EP will feature the XCX-ecque synth banger Touch Me and the elegantly sparse Cherrytrees. These songs are the result of Tyni having spent the last few years between LA, London and her home town of Sheffield, recording with the likes of Wayne Wilkins (Beyoncé, Jordin Sparks), MNEK (Zara Larsson, Little Mix), Sophie (Charlie XCX, Madonna) and Britney collaborator Ana Diaz, all of whom have provided the perfect foil for Tyni’s nuanced balance of style and substance.
Tyni grew up in Woodhouse, a small village in Sheffield, with her pharmacist technician mum, gas man dad, and elder sister. School was hard work, “To be blunt, some girls wanted to beat me up.” she says. “Was it the fact I had a unicorn on my bag? I don’t know. I wasn’t quite like everybody else.”. Rather than withdraw into herself or confirm to fit in, Tyni decided to ignore it, continue going about things in her own way and on her own terms and throw herself head-first into her life-long passion of music.
By the age of 9, Tyni was signed up at Sheffield’s Joy Reynolds theatre school. A music industry showcase followed some years later. It was themed around one of Tyni’s other passions – horror films. Present that day was a manager who’d worked with the likes of Lily Allen and Estelle. She saw something in Tyni and introduced her to Wayne Wilkins. There’s not much Wilkins doesn’t know about the diversity of female pop talents out there, and with Tyni he’d found his muse.
Now here we are in 2017, and Tyni’s unicorn bag is stuffed with irresistible, original but accessible pop songs that establish her as an exciting, innovative new artist. Fighter is available to download at iTunes and stream across all platforms.
