Suomen suurin yhtye Haloo Helsinki! julkaisi tänään uuden singlen ”Hulluuden Highway”, joka on nimikappale 10. maaliskuuta ilmestyvältä uudelta albumilta. Tuleva levy on äänitetty legendaarisella Hansa Studiolla Berliinissä, ja se sisältää myös joulukuussa julkaistun singlen ”Rakas”, joka on edelleen Suomen radiolistan sijalla #1.
”Tälle biisille olemme antaneet 110%! Se on monipuolinen kokonaisuus, jossa yhdistyy Haloon tyylikkyys ja vahva teksti. Modernit elementit ovat aina olleet osa meitä, ja haluamme yllättää jälleen kuulijamme. Pam Pam!” kuvailevat biisin säveltäneet kitaristit Jere Marttila ja Leo Hakanen.
”Täällä Hulluuden Highwayllä tuntuu välillä siltä, että mikään tai kukaan ei riitä kenellekään, ja kaaos hallitsee kaikkea. Joskus on hyvä istua aloilleen ja hengittää......” kertoo biisin sanoittanut laulaja Elli Haloo.

Horror-infused screamo band One Last Shot from Syracuse, NY has debuted the new music video for their single "Leather & Fangs" (watch here). The video starts with a nostalgic introduction from Steven Smith of Fuse's Steven's Untitled Rock Show and then showcases a performance from the band at the haunted Landmark Theater in NY. The video was shot by B-horror director Ron Bonk (She Kills, Night of the Strange), with the track's production being handled by Justin Spaulding and Steve Sopchak (Such Gold, Ice Nine Kills). The single comes from the band's upcoming album The Death of a Poet & All of His Friends, which will be released independently on 3/31.
"The album is a concept album about 5 strangers running from an ambiguous dark force," says vocalist Jeremy Miller. "They find refuge in an isolated chapel in the woods at night that they block themselves in from the evil that surrounds them. The album is about their character development & realization of inevitable death. This song in particular is about the main character, 'The Poet,' and his struggles with life and death in the situation he's been dealt."
The "Poet" character is loosely based off Miller's own struggles with life and death. At age 17, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that has no cure and requires daily medication in order for him to stay alive.
"Leather & Fangs" is available for free download at Bandcamp and The Death of a Poet & All of His Friends will be available on March 31st at all online retailers.

Japanese super-producer Yasutaka Nakata today unveils his new single 'Crazy Crazy' featuring j-pop icon Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and multi-million selling British pop star Charli XCX. The track is accompanied by visuals directed by Kazuaki Seki, now available to watch on YouTube and stream on all partners.
Kazuaki Seki, the genius director behind OK Go's iconic video for 'I Won't Let You Down' supplies hypercolour visuals for 'Crazy Crazy' that see Kyary, Charli and Nakata face-swapped into the fray for a lip-sync party. The track is a typically high energy, sugar-sweet pop single and is Nakata's latest solo effort. Yasutaka Nakata is best known for his production on global hits by j-pop queen Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, j-pop supergroup Perfume and co-founding the Japanese electro unit Capsule. Nakata's productions have gone on to win awards and sell millions worldwide.
Following her latest single 'After The Afterparty' and previous collaborations with PC Music associated artists, Charli XCX's fascination with the genre lead to her first foray into j-pop. Worldwide, Charli has sold 33 million singles and 1 million albums. "I'm definitely a fan of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's music, her style, her art. I think she's a really incredible artist" said Charli of her co-star. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's history as a genre-defining artist, model and vocalist puts her at the centre of the Japanese fashion and music industries, recently celebrating the fifth anniversary of her debut release with a sell-out world tour and greatest hits compilation '5 Years Monster'.
Scottish rock outfit Vukovi announce their self-titled debut album, due for release this March 10th via LAB Records, with a full UK headline tour beginning March 10th at Glasgow’s King Tuts.
Frantic and explosive, the new music video for lead single and album opener ‘La Di Da’ erupts into a snake-infested frenzy in seconds. “I wanted the video for ‘La Di Da’ to be a representation of my subconscious”, frontwoman Janie Shilstone says. “Almost like watching what a satanic, schizophrenic nightmare would look like.”
“At first I was terrified and when David, the owner, turned up with this see-through box. I totally froze when I saw her, though David assured me that she'd never bit or tried to strangle anyone before!
Her name was Honey, a 6ft Boa Constrictor, and after 20 mins of stroking her I finally plucked up the courage to hold her. I completely fell in love. She slithered down my left arm and rested her head on my hand, it was so therapeutic. There was one shot where I lay down and got her to slither along my body and she beautifully went behind my ear and then up towards the camera.”

Partly inspired by the Joker and Harley Quinn (from Batman) relationship Janine was obsessed with as a comic book loving teen, “the song portrays an abusive relationship unbeknown to the victim,” says the singer. “There are a lot of emotions throughout the song. There’s vulnerability, and there’s resistance. It took time to come together, and it had to live on the back burner for a while. But one night I gave in to the niggling that kept demanding I go back to it. I remember the moment it came together; me and Hamish (Reilly, guitars) in my flat drinking pretentious cocktails, laptop, tiny amp, guitar…” Incessantly giddy, intoxicatingly catchy; the end result more than rewards the toil.
Vukovi’s self-titled debut album is the definitive snapshot of their Technicolor wonder to date. They demand your attention. Produced by longtime collaborator Bruce Rintoul – “nobody pushes me quite like Bruce” says Janine – its twelve songs take in themes of individuality, drug abuse, depression and suicide. “The record might sound quirky,” says Janine. “But there are many darker notes in there…”
Tracks like ‘Prey’ see Shilstone digging deep into personal experience (“it’s about a time in my life where I thought I’d met my knight in shining armor – but he fucked me up even more) and the sublime ‘I’m Wired’, Janine’s favourite song on the record (“I wrote it trying to describe being in a relationship with severe depression and trying to express that you need that person even though you don’t show it most of the time”).
There’s introspection here, yes. There’s beauty, sure. But there are songs like ‘And He Lost His Mind’ too, which is as fun as rock music has ever allowed itself to be. A big, bouncy, neon daubed earworm that bores itself into your brain and gobbles up on your serotonin. Then there’s ‘Boy George’, a former single with a guitar sliced through it like a chainsaw through a piñata. And, if you’re going to call a song ‘Bouncy Castle’, chances are that it’s not going to be an acoustic weepy. Vukovi truly excel here, coming on like Paramore span around and around and around until they’re very dizzy and just about ready to hurl up something… wonderful.

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.
