Watch: Roadkeeper Share Music Video For "Enemy Mine"

Texas indie rock/psych/shoegaze four-piece Roadkeeper have shared the video for their their politically charged single "Enemy Mine".

With a blend of shimmering psychedelic guitar, assertive synthesizers and melodic vocals, ‘Enemy Mine’ tells the story of young people vulnerable to far-right radicalisation. It encompasses everything that Roadkeeper are about.

Roadkeeper on the meaning behind the track: "The lyrics to Enemy Mine were written about the far right radicalization of vulnerable young people in the US by white nationalist professional pundits who are fed viewers and readers by algorithms on social media and YouTube. There is an organized effort to convert impressionable young people into radical white supremacists and encourage them to undertake radical action against marginalized people and progressive political movements. Enemy Mine is about the dissonance between the perceived realities of radical white supremacists and that of everyone else."

Watch: The Polyphonic Spree Drop Music Video For "She’s A Rainbow"

Texas psych pop rock supergroup The Polyphonic Spree have dropped the video for their cover version of The Rolling Stones classic "She’s A Rainbow". 

The song is taken from their recent covers album 'Afflatus', get your copy here. The band is currently at work on a new, full-length original album, slated for release this fall.

“She’s A Rainbow” has been a staple of The Polyphonic Spree’s live set for years, but DeLaughter’s history with The Rolling Stones goes all the way back to high school, as he told Ultimate Classic Rock today. “I was a freshman in high school. Me and another kid, Kevin Swanson, had a band, and all we played were Stones songs,” he explains. “We got the opportunity to play in front of the lunch crowd, outside in the commons area.  We started the show with ‘Jumping Jack Flash.’ It was all going great. Then we were blazing through ‘Brown Sugar’ when some kid unplugged the power to the PA, and everything went silent, which in turn, turned my failing friend into a cussing dad who just hit his thumb with a hammer. I quickly realized it was all over, no more show, total let down. That was the last time I ever played The Rolling Stones live, until we played ‘She’s A Rainbow.’”

New Entry: Sunstinger Share New Single "Shadows"

UK post punk/shoegaze band Sunstinger have shared their new single "Shadows".

The song is taken from their upcoming 4-track debut EP 'Beyond The Frame', which was written during lockdown 1. Grab it here.

Speaking about the band's Taylor Wright said: "[The song] is about people we knew while we were younger and how we see them doing the same things now that they were doing back then. Is about getting past that. Where we are from, it doesn't happen very often and people often get stuck in a cycle. But being from around here, these villages become a part of you. So there's always a temptation to fall back into your old ways. It's like a comfort. It's about temptations and how your decisions have an impact on who you become."
