3 Songs: On Repeat

Aloha – “Faraway Eyes” (The Cleveland art-rock band returns today after a lengthy hiatus to deliver their sixth album, Little Windows Cut Right Through via Polyvinyl Records.  This time around their rhythmically-driven brand of introspective indie-rock is emblazoned with 80’s prog-pop and soft rock alongside the unique jazz-informed instrumentation - vibraphone, marimba and flute – fans have come to expect for an album well worth the wait.)   

Abandoned By Bears – “Good Terms” (The Swedish easy-core quintet recently released The Years Ahead, their new album and first for label Victory Records.  Anthemic sing-along pop-punk melodies and energetic bouncing beats are combined with thunderous metalcore riffage and positive lyrical vibes for a heavy yet highly melodic sound that recalls former labelmates A Day To Remember.)  

Rogue Wave – “Ocean” (The veteran California indie-pop band - led by Zach Rogue and longtime bandmate Pat Spurgeon - also recently returned after a long wait with their sixth album, Delusions Of Grand Fur, via Easy Sound Recording Co.  The grand new album is graced by their trademark gentle folk-pop and melancholic yet infectious melodies but is laced with new experiments in psychedelic electronics and sparkly synths, adding new textures to their tried and true sound to great effect.)
