Listen to KidEyes' bittersweet new single, "Take Me Back in Time"

 In every relationship, that feeling of "newness" eventually fades. It's a feeling that KidEyes think about on their new single "Take Me Back in Time," a joyful, all-embracing anthem where they let go of their fears and begin to accept that true love develops over time. The theme of stability also applies to the duo of Ben Epand and Greg Cahn, both of which approach their new creative endeavor without any premeditated expectations—and all they can do is celebrate the moment. 

"Tame Me Back in Time" is featured on KidEyes' self-titled debut EP, which is due out on October 4. Throughout October, the duo is also hosting a month-long residency at the Hi-Hat in Eagle Rock. - Juan Rodríguez


On "Paralyze the Dead," Stereo Match celebrate individuality

On "Paralyze the Dead," Stereo Match push themselves to follow their instincts. Following their dance-oriented debut single, "Worship You," the indie-pop quartet retain their groove, albeit, with a funkier and bouncier pop sheen. With Young the Giant's Eric Cannata on production duties, the band inspires others to overcome their fears and to put your true self out there. It's a timeless message that—matched with their joyous spirit and slick hooks—always goes down easy. 

"Paralyze the Dead" is featured of Stereo Match's forthcoming LP, HUMAN, due out later this year. - Juan Rodríguez

Listen to Nadoyel's lush, transcendent new single "Providence"

Nadoyel's lush, violin-driven compositions heighten the senses with lulling tranquility. On a surface level, you'd think that the trio of Celia Eydeland, Jacqui Miranda, and Zachary Paul's use of space and atmosphere falls into some blanket term like "dream-pop"—except that they're taking a more experimental approach that sounds riskier and more unique. On "Providence," a highlight in their debut EP, Tav, Paul's blissful, cascading arrangements (he's classically trained) softly glide over Miranda's icy, slow strums—as Eydeland yearns for loving transcendence while sounding just as, well, transcendent. But even if "Providence" has more of an ambient touch, there's a power in its simple elegance—elaborate yet effortless, all while retaining a pop undercurrent. 

Listen to "Providence" below, and hear the rest of Tav on their official bandcamp page. - Juan Rodríguez
