‘Under Your Spell’ is the 7th album by the Birthday Massacre, and with it comes eleven songs that reveal a side of the Canadian band that audiences may not be familiar with. Driven with the band’s signature, unique blend of spiralling synth melodies, walls of guitar and evocative vocals, the new songs range from dark, aggressive anthems to danceable, pretty pop and hit all the bases that audiences have come to expect. However, there is also a rawness to the emotion being expressed, an openness and vulnerability that feels new.
One thing that is clearer than ever, however, is the tight bond that exists between the band members and their willingness to explore heartbreak and loss together. With these songs, they have entered the darkness of their most fragile emotions and returned with a cohesive and detailed musical portrait that captures both the anger and hope that exist within a moment in time.
The Birthday Massacre continue to make music that is so very unique to them. Once again, they have managed to create an album that somehow feels so familiar, yet challenges the listener to continue alongside them on their ever-changing, ever-growing journey.
The Birthday Massacre have made a second song from their upcoming new album available to hear:-

The Birthday Massacre chose the colour violet for all their subsequent artwork (after their 'Violet' EP), stating that “Violet is the colour of the tragic comedy. We associate it with fantasy and
melancholy. These themes make up much of the band’s lyrical inspiration. The colour also
mirrors our sound dynamic. Our music mixes contrasting elements. In turn, violet is the sum
of two contrasting colours: Red and Blue.”
Ghost Toast released a first single "Gordius" from their upcoming third album "Out Of This World". The album is released June 7th 2017 via Inverse Records. Listen to the single on Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2q7ORlt and check their music video out from here: http://bit.ly/2qaDpni
Ghost Toast is an instrumental, experimental progressive rock band from Debrecen, Hungary, formed in 2008. They love heavy, trippy music and film scores as well, so they use these elements to create their own music.
With their 3rd album, the band used elements of heavy prog rock, world music, folk, and electronic music. The songs on are connected by a loose concept - a connection between fantasy and some mythological themes (influenced by the Dark Tower saga by Stephen King, Dune by Frank Herbert, I am legend by Richard Matheson, Greek mythology, etc.).
The band names following artists as their influencers Tool, Faith No More, Mastodon, Crippled Black Phoenix, Ulver, Special Providence, Oceansize, Jaga Jazzist, Shpongle, Orbital, Ott, Plaid, Future Sound Of London, various film score composers (like Ennio Morricone, Jeremy Soule). So this tells that it is quite impossible to describe their music, you'll need to experience it by yourself!
Ivy Crown (former Taras) is an all female hard rock band, with ice queen attitudes and hooks that will get you vibing instantly.
Consisting of a former MMA fighter, a war refugee and a ghetto child these girls are not to be messed with. If that hard core mix doesn’t convince you, then listen to their first single 'Timeout' that will definitely blow your mind. You can watch the video by clicking the link below.
Ivy Crown are driven by heavy guitar hooks and great melodies. The ladies have been a part of the music scene for many years and the ambitions are wide and international. Because of that, the band can already announce being a part of Prime Collective and their first show at Prime Time Distortion in June.
Ivy Crown is this freshly non-written paper, ready to fill a whole new book with their attitude, sound and appearances. Get on the train before it hits you.

NIGHT THINKER EP TRACKLISTING:
Swedish pop star Tove Styrke is back and it’s all about getting close (with no clothes) on her forthcoming new single "Say My Name", release April 28th. Almost two years has passed since her album “Kiddo” was released in June 2015 - highly acclaimed by critics and celebrated by fans. This time around Tove Styrke turns her gaze inwards: it’s soft with a whispering, gentle, yet strong voice. "Say My Name" is about wanting to be with a person and that nothing else matters.
Co-written and produced by fellow Swede Elof Loelv who co-produced Rihanna’s track ”Stay" feat. Mikky Ekko and has also worked with acts like Zara Larsson and Icona Pop.
“There's a reason why so much music is about sex and love” says Tove Styrke. ”it is linked to one's worst and best experiences. I have not written about love before because I didn’t want to write another love song. But I have changed. I am tired of being angry, right now I just need to make music that makes me feel good”
”The stronger I sing, the less I can affect the song. The more quiet I sing, the greater the differences will be in the tone and texture. A lot of people are afraid to talk loudly, but there is a strength to talking quietly - people really have to listen to you. There’s no need to try to be a man in a man’s world.”
"Say My Name" (Sony Music / RCA) will be released on April 28th.
