I The Victor's "Tongue & Stutter" Fall Jam You're Looking For

I The Victor are the Atlanta Based New Comers sure to rock your socks this Fall.

With a running start into the game this year including a tour with The Orphan The Poet, support shows with Vinyl Theatre and Vesperteen, a DIY west coast tour, and a handful of slots on Vans Warped Tour this past July. The solo project was created by Atlanta’s Rebecca Ramos, who co-produced “Tongue & Stutter” in addition to directing, writing & editing the music video.

Check out the music video below!

The track is the lead of three singles and videos to precede a new EP in early 2019.

About the single, Ramos states: “Tongue & Stutter is about individuality, really. We’ve been playing it live for a little bit and I always sum it up as a song about growth and making the intentional decision to be who you are and not be afraid of some of the risks that may come with that. I’ve grown so much since past ITV songs, I just wanted to write about not being as afraid to dive into the unknown, especially if the driving force is being more free and better off for it. There are dozens of little moments in the lyrics that mean the world to me or that exemplify little breakthroughs — not trusting a phone is in reference to my newfound disregard for social media and the numbers game, getting out of ‘the woods’ and into my own life instead of following people’s opinions and living for others, etc. I feel like Tongue & Stutter really led me through some growth I didn’t realize I needed; each section is it’s own little betterment of my headspace and that’s why I’m so excited to have it lead off this whole new era for I The Victor.”

Chicago’s very own Action/Adventure are here to turn pop punk upside down & right side up with their melodic, passionate vibe. The band is enjoying themselves after their most recent music video release for their track, “Parachute.”

The five piece premiered the track at ThePunkSit - an anthem to the Creatives in the hustle, and damnit we’re listening. Check out the energetic camaraderie of Action/Adventure in their music video for “Parachute,” down below!

“It's about confronting the unknown," says vocalist Blake Evaristo. "It’s really easy to have fears and doubts that prevent you from reaching your desires and goals; however, it takes real courage to attempt a try amongst all odds. We’re at this point in our lives where the band dream is dwindling, but we’ll be damned if we give up without a fight. We hope the video illustrates that. Shout out to all the cast, crew, and friends that made our first video a reality. We can’t thank them enough. We hope people enjoy the song and dig the video."

Ledges Impress With New Single 'Nothing To Say'

Akron, Ohio indie rock trio Ledges will release their debut album Homecoming on September 1st, but now they're celebrating their brand new, anthemic new single "Nothing To Say" can be heard on Spotify!

Homecoming is a story that follows a character on a journey through doubt, love, loss, and redemption, and "Nothing to Say" is the 3rd scene of that story. Frontman Andy Hoffman explains "In the song, the character stumbles out of the cold into an old school cabaret bar. There he meets this beautiful girl and thinks that she's the answer to his problems, but it's just infatuation and even though he knows that to an extent, he still pursues the girl. The simple lyrics and upbeat vibe of the song are meant to represent that first moment when you meet someone and it's all superficial emotions/feelings and there's not much to actually say (hence the title of the song)."

FRTNK Release New Single

Los Angeles' own alternative hip-hop duo FRTNK (Fourteen K) released their brand new track, "Aqua" via TeamBackPack this week.

The sentiment behind the song is to live care free, and be happy despite the struggles you may face. The band explains,  "it's a playful track that's meant to ignite that childlike feeling in all of us. From the playful melody to shouting out the vowels, how we can combat our adulthood is by reigniting the simplicity of just living in the now like we did when we were kids." 

Stream it down below!

"Aqua" is a song about letting go of the struggles in life and allowing yourself to be happy. The band elaborates, "Aqua" is one of the singles leading to the band's forthcoming EP, to be announced soon. 

FRTNK (pronounced "Fourteen K") is an American alternative hip-hop group hailing from the greater Los Angeles area, known as the Inland Empire. Formed by artists Benjamin Aragbaye, Bryan Ramos and Barin Butler, the group's musical style joins the electronic sounds of rock and Neo-RnB, while seamlessly merging it with heavy 808's and groovy synthesizers. Each being only in their early twenty's, their daring dream-like production laid with raps and harmonies has already generated comparisons to world renowned musicians like Outkast, Kanye West, The Neptunes, and The Gorillas. This book-smart, skater-type band has been studying music since they were in elementary school and they've found some way to blend and mesh opposing musical genres effortlessly. Their first official recorded work, Operation AU, was released in November 2011. This six track EP and their follow-up freshman project Moreno Beachhave peaked the interest of many indie & major labels in America and overseas, FRTNK's songs "Imagine" and "Can I Love You" landing on the desk of Director Issa Rae. FRTNK has been working diligently in their California home studio recording and producing for themselves & other artists. 

Head to TeamBackPack today to check out FRTNK's latest track, "Aqua." Follow FRTNK online for new music, updates, and more.

According to Vocalist Michael Alexander, “Revive’ is more than just a song to us. It’s a new beginning. It’s a fresh start.

This is us moving on, this is us growing. This is our Revive.”

Indie-pop star Kenzie Moore has just unveiled her new single “Body of Armor” from her upcoming debut album. 

Kenzie Moore is just 22 years old, juggling her musical and academic careers as so many of us find ourselves doing these days. That hasn’t stopped her though, and her debut EP Stories was able to reach #69 on the iTunes indie charts on its first day of release!

“Body of Armor” is the first single from her debut full length album which is as of yet untitled. The song is about being a true friend to somebody who is going through a break up or a rough time in a relationship, or being their armor. It’s a position that many of us have found ourselves in, and it makes the song easy to relate to. Moore’s Adele inspired sounds is sure to be appealing to a wide audience.

Check out "Body of Armor" here!

In an interview with Girl’s Life magazine, Kenzie spoke a little about the track, “I wanted a song that was a love song but also kind of shows that women can be strong, too. We can not only fight our own battles but we are there for the ones we love. It isn't always the man needing to save the damsel in distress, we can be the superhero, too.”

Kenzie Moore’s new album is due out this fall from Pop Fiction, and you can check out her social media for more!

Twin brothers Peter and Nathan Michel are the faces of Michel, a new and modern pop band for fans for The 1975, The Wombats, Paramore, Walk The Moon, and other well known names. They have recently released a new music video for the title track off their new EP, DRIVE.

Vocalist Peter says, “The dark, yet colorful "'DRIVE'" is a message of embracing opportunities despite the uncertainty and risk involved," Michel brings a lot of energy and emotion to the table because of not only their cool and edgy visuals but also the rhythms and strong pop vocals. "Whether it be love or ambition," says Michel, "life is about seizing opportunities and allowing yourself the freedom to reap great reward and/or equal failure."

Michel are from Providence, RI but they got their start in writing and playing music all over Rhode Island. In 2014, they decided to leave their long standing folk project, to pursue the pop duo and write emotional and unique ballads with lots of energy. Michel continues as an independent act and will be releasing their EP ‘DRIVE’ in July.
