ASL Music Video Is Latest From With Confidence

Bands continue to take in the important of inclusivity as they move forward, and With Confidence has always been one step ahead.

"Moving Boxes," the third single from their recent album Love and Loathing, the band's second full length, out on Hopeless Records, was their pet project for this American Sign Language Friendly music video. The band worked with an ASL interpreter to create a really special video for fans to experience the song in a different, more inclusive way.

Check it out below!

A few months ago, With Confidence shared the original music video for "Moving Boxes,"and in June released "That Something".

"Moving Boxes" was written by guitarist Inigo Del Carmen, who said, "I think it's important for media/art to be accessible to everyone. Our goal is to create music for everyone to enjoy and lyrics that everyone has the opportunity to relate to. By doing a video in ASL, we can further immerse our fans who are hearing impaired and create an even bigger platform for some of the topics, such as mental health, that our music touches on. My best friend is hearing impaired and this is something we've talked about doing for awhile and now we've actually done it! Big thanks to Raquel for being an amazing teacher and helping us learn some ASL!”

Flounder Warehouse Shares 'What To Do'

IMG_0062.jpg

Philadelphia & NYC prog-pop band, Flounder Warehouse recently shared their debut music video for single, "What To Do." The Femme-Fronted band is an emotional, cathartic experience that all at once feels large and small.

Check out the video below!

With your main instruments being a piano, violin and percussion you're getting an earful that is reminiscent of a singer/songwriter genre on a larger scale. According to front-woman Seann, "This project was really personal for me. The song is based off a life experience. It’s from the point of view of a woman who is falling in love with someone, but she is hesitant to reveal her feelings to him. As she’s struggling with that decision though, she is unaware that there is no real possibility for a future between them: he’s leaving, to somewhere she can’t follow. By the last verse, she discovers his impending departure, and she is sort of left helpless, scrambling with her emotions. Hence, “What to do”."

The video is a clean, clear representation of that. The warm, light colors open up a sense of vulnerability that can be shared between listener and musician which I can definitely appreciate.

New Single “Allegiance” from VISTA

Anthem rock group VISTA is back once again with a new single, called “Allegiance.” This new track follows the previously released “Henchmen” and stands as the lead song from VISTA’s upcoming EP, due for release later this summer.

The message of “Allegiance” is about calling for fans of the band to join their own personal allegiances, and like most musicians, VISTA wants their fans to find a safe space in their music. VISTA is a combination of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist/singer Greg Almeida, and “Allegiance” shows off their chemistry in performing together.


“Allegiance” goes hand in hand with “Henchmen,” the themes of both songs blend together in a way that makes it clear the full EP will have a larger connecting theme, as well. The band offered this statement about the new single: “’Allegiance’ picks up pretty much right where our last single ‘Henchmen’ left off, as the last single was an anthem of oppression. This is an anthem of resistance and banding together.”

Revolution is where it’s at, and “Allegiance” screams it. With their music, VISTA carves out their own sub-genre in the alternative scene: anthem rock. They’re all about making music that people can get behind, music that will make people rally, music that makes people want to stand for something.

“Allegiance” is a powerhouse track that speaks to a worthy cause. Listen to it down below, and stay connected with VISTA on social media for more updates on when their full EP will be released.
