New Album Hype : Emarosa – Versus

emarosa_versus_RGB-200x200

So Emarosa, a band that went from hardcore screaming on the This Is Your Way Out EP (hard to believe Chris Roetter of Like Moths To Flames was the vocalist then) to beautiful clean vocals (Relativity and Emarosa era) is back at it again. With currently 3 singles out they are looking better than ever. Stay tuned after the jump to hear what we think. We’re super stoked on this release – but you’ll want to take a listen for yourself and decide.

Track Review: Side FX and Kim Cameron’s “Let’s Fall in Love”

When I think of the artists who top the Billboard charts today, my reaction is typically one of indifference at best. With few exceptions, modern pop music very seldom has any surprises to offer listeners anymore, whether it be in terms of innovation, creativity, or, even more subjective, quality.

Thankfully, it seems that “Let’s Fall in Love” is one of those exceptions. Sleek, stylish, and polished almost to the point of sterility, the track becomes immediately reminiscent of the bright synths and sounds of the 80s, but with an undeniably modern injection.

Though, as aesthetically pleasing as the song may be, this says little of the quality of its content, which, thankfully, does not disappoint. “Let’s Fall in Love” is ridiculously catchy, a conduit for soaring melodies and infectious hooks. By turning one eye to the past and the other to the present, Side FX and Kim Cameron have produced a single that is at once lustrous, danceable, and incontestably addictive.
