It’s a challenging time to be releasing new music in any fashion. With a global pandemic affecting the lives of just about everyone worldwide, there’s even more roadblocks to an often thankless job considering that most musicians can’t play a proper show right now.
Luckily, there’s still plenty of high energy pop-punk to make your day better. Fresh off nearly 2 years of playing shows for 2018’s She’s Out to Get Me, Dayton, OH pop punk outfit Life In Idle has just released their new single “Hourglass” with an accompanying lyric video. We’re stoked to be premiering the new video for the track, which you can watch below.
Chicago-based Natural State have only been at it for a year, and have geared up for their newest song “Rubber Copy Dangerous” which released today.
Something a bit different, Natural State are inspired by “horror movies, video games, and comic books,” and “Rubber Copy Dangerous” is lyrically centered around a gunfight with an ex-bounty hunter and an antagonist.
Vocalist Lou Cervantes tells in detail: “The main point of the song is to persevere under extreme conditions, even when a big scary illuminati werewolf is your biggest obstacle. I won’t dance around it either, the song has a clear political stance against the ultra wealthy. There are some themes in the album that also showcase the vices of hoarding wealth and power for selfish gains.”
I love covering songs that are absolute passion projects with a lot of time/thought sunk into them. It’s clear Lou and other members Clay Williams and Stephen Buuck are putting their all into Natural State, as this is a well-produced banger that I had on repeat writing this article. Reminiscent of the wonder years of My Chem and The Used with a tinge of Dance Gavin Dance has me head over heels for this band in no time.
Check out “Rubber Copy Dangerous” before Natural State takes off like they deserve to!
