Myrtle Beach, SC rock/melodic hardcore band Hundredth have aired their new single "Leave Yourself".
According to vocalist/guitarist Chadwick Johnson: “‘Leave Yourself’ started out with the loose aim of trying to write our version of “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure. Obviously we veered from that path along the way, but it’s funny to think about where songs start. While we were putting together the instrumental we almost ruined it by trying to overcomplicate it. When I went to write lyrics and vocals, I decided to play on that exact concept. We often overthink and overanalyze rather than relying on instinct.
“The song is about the dichotomy of wanting to do everything and nothing at the same time,” Johnson continues. “It’s both an external question of possibility and a solution to internal scrutiny. Ultimately, ‘Leave Yourself’ is a song about getting out of your own way.”
UPDATE 26/08/2019: "Leave Yourself" is our new Single of the Week!

London-based indie rock band Spector have released the video for their latest single "Half Life".
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from a forthcoming EP which is set to release soon via their own Moth Noise imprint.
Vocalist Fred Macpherson says of the new single, ""Half Life" is about the fear of missing out on your own life. The worry that you're losing touch with people, places, culture, no longer recognising yourself in the mirror, the constant tick of the clock in the background. It's about wondering how much time you have left. But we wanted the music to be upbeat and celebratory. There's nothing better than a group of people just losing it, all singing along to something a bit miserable. That's the life blood of the indie disco, handed down from generation to generation... Dancing with tears in your eyes."
