It’s been a little more than a month since Hannah Lorimer debuted her latest music video, “Rewind.” True to Lorimer’s style, you’re sure to feel smitten in just one listen with the songstress and her unique melody and lyricism.

The music video takes on the sweet song in a carefree, vibrant way. Shot by Terrance Harding, and produced by Fortune West, the video lights up the song in an ethereal way. Taking place on the Atlantic City boardwalk, it embodies summer, love, and laughter. Lorimer’s prior tracks, like single “Alive,” are impressive precursors to this bubbly anthemic tune, and we’re so excited that “Rewind” is joining our ever expanding playlist!

Check out the music video for “Rewind” down below!

We’re hoping (and you should be hoping, too) that this track is bringing forth a collection of songs from one of our favorite singers and collaborators. Based in Philadelphia, PA, Hannah has an extensive background in songwriting, teaching, chorus work, harmonizing and otherwise. An unstoppable woman with the voice of a sweet, sweet angel - count us in!

You can keep up to date with Hannah on her private social media, or on youtube. Feel free to look her up and listen good, because she’s someone you’re not going to want to miss!

After tireless hard work & dedication, we are excited to announce the celebration of a debut release from Philadelphia’s own, Hannah Lorimer.

The Illinois native has been creating, performing and supporting local music & artists since 2013 here in Philadelphia - and has now, finally, put out her debut single, “Alive.” The track is sweet, sultry, and romantic in all ways that we’ve all always known & loved with Lorimer’s music. The singer & songwriter has really crafted something special & unique, which can be a feat in itself: a track that shows off Lorimer’s distinct sound.

Check it out below!

“Alive” is upbeat, but remains grounded in gentle lyricism, and the powerhouse that is Lorimer’s voice. There isn’t a single moment in the song where you’re questioning where Lorimer is bringing you. It feels confident, fluid & matured, as if Hannah herself knows that the content she is putting out is content that needs to be heard - and so, we hear it.

The 5-minute long track is what we hope is the first of many, whether that be more singles, or even a full album. Either way, Hannah Lorimer is always gigging here in Philadelphia, and we’ve included her social media down below so you never miss a beat!

Flounder Warehouse Shares 'Better Now' Music Video

An ode to the freedom of life & love & music is Flounder Warehouses most recent endeavor with their music video, “Better Now.”

The fun loving band has a fun loving track, one that takes on the challenges of happiness, of pursuing something you love no matter what - and we can’t stop listening. The jazz infused pop track is an effortless listen which makes it easy to add to any playlist you’ve got going right now.

Check out the fiery tune devoted to life itself down below!

About the track, the band said, “This video is completely absurd --- a series of scenes in which I have the time of my life while doing silly things. At one point I dance with an enormous rubber ducky on the beach. It was really fun. The project came together when I was talking to my brother, Alex, on the phone and he said, "Let's do another music video." I had no idea about what, and I hadn't written a song in a year. So the prompt he gave me was: "Write a summer song that doesn't use the word 'just.'"

Turns out, I use "just" a lot in my songs. So that part was challenging. The rest was natural. It's the second video I've collaborated on with my brother, who is the videographer and director -- it's really special bringing our passions together into these projects. After watching this video, I hope people feel inspired to be themselves, spread good vibes always, and choose to live out their dreams no matter what.”

We feel pretty good, what about you? Check out the music video & spread some love with Flounder Warehouse! We’ve got their social media links down below!

Suit Of Lights Release New Album

Break Open The Head, the fourth full-length studio album by New York foursome Suit of Lights, is available now!

The album was released on June 6th, and is filled with genre-bending and quirky rock tracks that are the band's signature “style.” They have been able to mix 60's pop, punk, progressive rock, metal, jazz, and baroque pop into a cohesive whole. 

You can buy the album on Suit of Lights' Bandcamp! It's also available on iTunes!

Suit of Lights was formed in 2003 by Joe Darone, formerly of The Fiendz and The Rosenbergs. He began focusing on his own songwriting which prompted the formation of the band. 

“Some bands go for 30 years with one sound, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But that’s boring to me,” Darone says. Suit of Lights never stays exactly the same over each of their releases, always offering something new to the table. 

You can follow Suit of Lights on their social media for upcoming information!
