John Whip's 'Electric Love' Debuts Today

Photographer: Steph Defeo @solidstares

Philadelphia local, John Whip, is celebrating today with the premiere of his latest single, and greatest effort, "Electric Love." The jazz infused-pop single is one listeners can easily fall in love with, and Whip creates an intimate scene for you to get lost in.

Whip is an impressive force, but the singer did have help putting "Electric Love" together, of course. With the help of his regular band as well as some outsourcing, "Electric Love" includes John Whip (keys, vocals, production), Sam Carlen -(guitars, bass, additional keys), Craig Hamilton - drums & percussion), Ilya Setrakian - (keys for Electric Love), and Henry Tirfe - (tenor sax for Electric Love).

Between Whip's smooth voice and tender lyricism, his band also follows suit in a defined, crisp manner to make this track a true delight and experience to listen to. We've got the exclusive premiere of the track, streaming here on The Hook only!

Check it out below!

Whip describes how "Electric Love" came to fruition for us, "I wrote this song after accidentally falling in love with someone.  The way we all do when someone just says the right thing or smiles at you the perfect way.  They way that maybe we all think we shouldn’t because there are so many options and reasons to be alone. I knew I didn’t want it to be a jazz song though as that would limit my possibilities in a commercial world, but I knew that if I sung it a certain way and packaged the song a certain way, it could be pop - but still a different kind of pop.

I've just fallen in love with a lot of guys and wanted to explore what that means and who that makes me in the world we live in.  

I just wanted people to relate to that other side of hookup culture that we don’t sing about. The part when we catch feelings / usually the worst part because feelings aren't always reciprocated ya know?"

Of course we relate to that, and "Electric Love" is the perfect song to put on while getting over those post hookup blues. John Whip should have lots more to give us if this is what he's already putting out - polished, professional work.

Check out the video below!

"I wanted to create a song that explored the feelings of someone going through an anxiety attack for the first time, i know when i myself had my first panic attack, i felt as though something was seriously wrong, in an extreme thought even possibly dying or having a heart attack. We as humans tend to internalize our emotions when things get hectic forgetting that sometimes we need to express our feelings in however way we see fit. This song was my approach in expressing a feeling that many of us experience often," says Wilde of the track. 

So, you heard it hear first, "Angor Animi" is the first track off of Lazarus Wilde's March 1st EP - so stay tuned, because if you dig this then you're gonna dig the whole damn thing. As always, social media links down below to keep up with everything that is Lazarus Wilde!

GRIMM. Debuts New Music Video 'Summerset Station'

lights.jpg

A blend of hip-hop & alternative rock, GRIMM. brings out the best of both genres in their brand new single "Summerset Station," off of upcoming EP, spectrum. The new track also has an exclusive music video you can watch below!

The track is an upbeat, 21 Pilots-esque anthem that you definitely want to check out. If you're familiar with the genre blending techniques of Linkin Park, 21 Pilots, or even locally grown band Civil Youth, then you're definitely going to dig this. The video isn't what it seems, but maybe you should watch it for yourself to figure it out.

According to GRIMM., "After years of writing, managing and playing for bands, Adam found his own voice that would be the inspiration behind a new perspective in mainstream music. Being diagnosed with Autism at the age of 6, Adam had always been treated differently. Dealing with a mandatory separation from class into a resource room where Adam spent his time writing music and helping his classmates that functioned at a lower level. He used his musical ability to become more social and gain the confidence to become the performer he knows he will be. GRIMM. wants to be an inspiration to kids with Autism who feel their disability is stopping them from achieving their goals in life."

Good, new & exciting music for a good cause is definitely the type of stuff we like to get behind. GRIMM is going to push the limits on genre bending, and we look forward to what's to come in the near future!

Stay tuned later this month when GRIMM anticipates to release spectrum, and check out their social media to keep up with all updates!

Exclusive Premiere: Two Brand New Tracks From Maitri

Brooklyn's own Maitri have teamed up with The Hook to exclusively premiere the release of two brand new tracks, "Today" and "Flying Stars." 

Created in Brooklyn, NY, Maitri describes themselves as a "new sound that reflects modern day struggle and offers hope for a better reality. With the release of Today/Flying Stars, gospel returns to Africa through delay pedals and arpeggiators and country-western meets outer space."

"Today" and "Flying Stars" are the first of a collection of songs that will make up the full-length album, After Glow, anticipated for release this fall. Check them both out exclusively streaming below thanks to Soundcloud!

Translated from Sanskrit, Maitri (”my tree”) is an unconditional friendship and acceptance of yourself that extends outward to the world. This group was formed by Caroline Davis (voice/woodwinds) to embrace both the hardship and ecstasy of life through song, and it is now a collective songwriting outlet for both herself and Ben Hoffmann (voice/keyboards).

Featuring driving keyboards and a powerful rhythm section led by Sam Weber (bass) and Jay Sawyer (drums), Maitri incorporates a heavy dose of soul and R&B, while also drawing upon indie influences. The band self describes their music as "a unique sound in the Brooklyn musical landscape, Maitri is the soundtrack for the inevitable ushering in of the new world order."

The two tracks are the predecessors for After Glow, and are sure to fire up listeners for what sounds like is going to be a really exciting and innovative release. In the meantime, check out Maitri's social media so you never miss an update!

Hayride Casualties Release Single "Coal Fired Train"

A throbbing heartache, a cry for help, and it's the world that needs saving - that's the basis of the new single "Coal Fired Train" by Brooklyn indie folk-rock outfit Hayride Casualties.

Premiered on GroundSounds earlier this week, it's a direct reflection of the current state of our world; from an environmental, political and social perspective. "Coal Fired Train" comes off the band's upcoming album Fossil Fuel Kid, out June 9th.

Check it out below!

"I think for anyone paying attention to what’s happening in the world right now, it’s hard not to feel hopeless, and it’s this constant battle to stay optimistic," shared vocalist Daniel DeWald. "'Coal Fired Train' explores those moments of burnout when you give in and just let the darkness completely overtake you. Hopefully those moments are temporary, but it’s good to know you’re not the only one feeling that way."

Debut EP 'Hell Or High Water' From Blonde Roses

Blonde Roses, based out of New Orleans, have partnered with Substream Magazine to stream their debut EP, Hell Or High Water. Blending alternative rock with southern blues, Blonde Roses is proud to stream the full EP after they previously released their single, “Anymore.” The band is influenced by artists from the 60’s and 70’s, and with Hell Or High Water, they aim to give their fans honest and real lyrics about staying strong through the curveballs life throws at you. 

Band members Molly, Harry, Anthony, and Albert want Hell Or High Water to be their introduction to a long career in music, and the EP is a promising start. Raw, vulnerable, relatable, and real, Hell Or High Water draws from the band’s Louisiana roots and their personal experiences, sending a message to persevere, to stay strong, and to stay true to yourself.

The two singles off the EP, “Anymore” and “Bullet,” paint a picture of overcoming life’s obstacles and still being able to appreciate the beauty of it all. Lead singer Molly says, “Life isn’t always going to be easy, but it’s a blessing.” 

Hell Or High Water will officially be released later in the spring, but for now, it’s available for digital streaming, and keep up with Blonde Roses on social media for more updates from the band.

New Song from Have Mercy Premiered Exclusively with CLRVYNT

You may have read a previous article about Have Mercy releasing their single “Good Christian Man” from their upcoming album, Make The Best Of It. Now they’re back with another single off the album, which is due in full on Friday, April 21st. The new single is called “Baby Grand,” and Have Mercy has partnered with CLRVYNT to release the song exclusively.

Check it out below!

In an interview on their site. CLRVYNT said about the track, “Tender but powerful, it conveys both deep loneliness and warm comfort. It’s a ballad that tugs at heartstrings with desperate conviction, but also burns with a hopeful urgency.”

Pretty powerful words for a powerful song. Lead singer of Have Mercy, Brian Swindle, had his own words to say about the song: “’Baby Grand’ is a song of just regret. Regretting leaving a good situation or ‘thing’ that you had with someone over stupid reasons. It’s about trying to find a way to get back to that time but never being able to.” 

The full album, Make The Best Of It, was a passion project that took months of hard work trying to capture the essence of Have Mercy as a band. After seven months of crafting it, the album drops tomorrow, and with songs like “Baby Grand” and “Good Christian Man” it’s sure to be an emotional whopper. Check out the track listing below, and listen to “Baby Grand” (also read the full interview with CLRVYNT) through the link. 

You can also catch Have Mercy on tour soon, along with Tiny Moving Parts, Broadside and Nothing, Nowhere, starting on April 27th and ending on June 9th.

"Can You Relate" Out Now From The Great Enough

Philadelphia native rockers, The Great Enough, have recently shared their brand new music video "Can You Relate?" for listeners and fans! The music video is for the debut single "Can You Relate?" which is a lush, almost anthemic alt-rock track, one that premiered around two weeks ago. The music video is brand new, debuting just on Sunday!

Check out the video below!

The Great Enough formed in 2015, bringing together their brand of rock & roll. The band states that "rather than subscribe to labels, the band wants to let the music speak for itself.  It will tell you that these guys work hard and care deeply.  That they are exploring the human experience in as honest a way as they are able.  That they want to laugh, and rage; they want to feel our loneliness and our exultation; that they want to roar," and that everything else is up to the listener.

"Can You Relate?" is a refreshing rock track, with a feel good music video. I was surprised at first upon listening to the track, as there hasn't been much exciting progress happening in the realm of rock or alternative rock, but I'd definitely say that The Great Enough are bringing something new and exciting to the table. A more contemporary style that is easy to listen to and relatable.

Exclusive Premiere: Sentient Moss Shares '1999 in Colombia' Anticipating New Album

Anticipating a new album is an exciting and tricky endeavor. The guys at Sentient Moss have been preparing for their March 24th release of their upcoming album, Somebody, Somehow, by sharing a track or two with listeners - and this week, The Hook was lucky enough to pair up with the foursome to exclusively premiere their newest track, "1999 in Colombia."

Check out the stream below!

If you're a fan of American Football, or Moving Mountains, Sentient Moss might be right up your alley. The single, "1999 in Colombia" features members Connor McArthur (Vocals & Guitar), Matt Balkovic (Vocals & Guitar), Nigel Whitley (Bass), and Joe Fadem (Drums). Somebody, Somehow was produced / Mixed by Kevin Grossman at The Hangar (Wall, NJ), and mastered by Tom Ruff at Asbury Media (Asbury Park, NJ).

The band first released "Clarity" last week with 36vultures, and "1999 in Colombia" at first starts out like something I've heard before. Traditional alternative rock with the heavy, gruffness of the vocal outlining a stand out guitar riff. The song, though, surprised me as I listened further - that guitar riff breaking itself down into a more methodic, math like arrangement making the track feel unique and more emotionally heavy hitting.

To celebrate the upcoming album release, Sentient Moss will be joining Halogen's (our faves) Homecoming Release Show on March 25th, presented by Electric Oak! Toy Cars and Grin & Bear are joining the show as well, check out the poster below!

So far, with this being their second release off of the album, Somebody, Somehow, is lining up to be a killer collection that you definitely want to stay tuned for on March 24th! For more on Sentient Moss and what they're up to, check out their social media below!

Lunch Ladies Share "You're Not There"

"It seems that a lot of relationships, whether it be friendly or romantic, often seem fabricated and fake and leave you feeling alone. When you finally find someone that really eliminates that loneliness you begin to realize you'd do anything to hold onto them,” says Matt Whitley of the latest single, “You’re Not There,” by Lunch Ladies, his New Jersey based dream-pop band.

This is the third single preceding the upcoming release of their debut LP, “Down On Sunset Strip,” via Good Eye Records on March 10th, 2017. "I wrote 'You're Not There' about feeling alone, even when you're surrounded by a bunch of people,” he says. The heavy application of reverb on the guitars and the soft vocal melodies compliment the aforementioned lyrical content in the way that they simultaneously induce a dreamy sense of elation and melancholy.

Check it out below!


Singer Cynthia Rittenbach exhibits a tone reminiscent of Florence And The Machine, but executed with a more gentle, beautiful fragility. Impose Magazine colorfully describes the sound, saying “…it plays like the soundtrack to some otherworldly carousel, the feature attraction at a circus in the clouds.” Lunch Ladies presents a unique blend of mildly lo-fi production and wide sound-scaping, two qualities that rarely are achieved concurrently. As WXPN’s The Key describes it, “…it hovers over the intersection of indulgence and nostalgia.”

Consisting of Matt Whitley (vocals, guitar), Cynthia Rittenbach (vocals, bass), Matt Ramiz (vocals, guitar) and Peter Gargano (drums), Lunch Ladies exhibits a spectrum of aural tendencies over the course of the seven songs on the album, as vocal lead and support duties are shared among three vocalists. Head on over to Soundcloud or Spotify and give a listen to “You’re Not There,” and keep a watchful eye for Lunch Ladies’ “Down On Sunset Strip.”

You also can catch them live on any of the following dates: 
3/10 - The J House - New Brunswick, NJ (release show)
3/11 - Falafull House - Philadelphia, PA
3/26 - The Saint - Asbury Park, NJ
4/14 - Brighton Bar - Long Branch, NJ

Exclusive Premiere: Secret Nudist Friends Share 'Met You At That Show' With The Hook

Photography: Jeanette D. Moses

Straight out of the Philadelphia scene, Secret Nudist Friends have been making waves with their good vibes and good music. The garage/post-punk/surf trio is excited to premiere their newest track, "Met You At That Show," here at The Hook!

Based in Philadelphia, with strong roots in the Brooklyn and Philly scenes, Secret Nudist Friends was originally, the Brooklyn based bedroom project of Edward Krosney of The Fancy Balloons. Krosney teamed up with former bandmate Matthew Klauser to bring the project to the live stage, and thus the band went on to feature several lineups until they met Brian Hullihen, who brought new life and collaboration to the project. Recently, Krosney has passed the project over to the loving hands of Klauser and Hullihen who make up the new trio with bass player Andy Slepman.

SNF states that they "draws its sound from the psych rock roots of the 60s, such bands as the Zombies, Beach Boys, and Beatles, as much as current garage and psych groups such as Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Thee Oh Sees." The band has released several singles, an EP, and are working to release a full length in 2017. (Woohoo, that's this year)

Check out this exclusive premiere below!

The smooth track is an exciting establishment in a series of upcoming events for SNF, including a release show on March 6th at the Tralfamadore, which kicks off a month long SXSW tour! "Met You At That Show" vibes so hard as spring approaches, and relives that fateful experience of meeting someone at a show (do you know that experience, we do).

The track was written and performed by Secret Nudist Friends, with Matty Klauser -(vocals), guitar, Brian Hullihen (drums), and Andy Slepman (Bass). And in the usual DIY fashion, the single was recorded January-February 2017 at Tralfamadore in South Philly!

If you're stoked on Secret Nudist Friends (like we are), then you should check out their upcoming tour dates, and then check out their social media to keep up on all things SNF!

Four Star Riot Share New Song

To start the holiday weekend, Four Star Riot made sure to tease fans with a brand new single, "Beautiful Soul." The track is available on Spotify & Apple, but you can check out a stream of "Beautiful Soul" below via Bandcamp!

The song, a longtime staple in the band's live show, was recorded and produced last month by Steve Connelly at Zen Recording. Lyrically, it's about inner-beauty and strength, and the power to overcome sadness; a topic that is fitting for the month of January, when depression affects so many people! Musically it pulses and drives, showcasing a tight four-piece power pop unit with a track that's built around guitar, bass and drums.

This is a really nice, smooth track that makes us excited for what Four Star Riot has coming up in their future - and also nicely highlights their 2016 release of Waves back in September!

For more on Four Star Riot, and their running start to 2017, check out their social media links below!
