With an infectious alternative pop-rock sound, Tuff Slang bring back hints of a classic sound with their debut single, “Nothing All The Time.” The track is filled with stunning instrumentals (many of which will make you long for a day at the beach), booming vocals, and a rhythm that will have your head bobbing along. By the second chorus, you’ll be singing the chorus like a seasoned Tuff Slang fan.

The band effortlessly blends rhythm and soul with pop sensibility. Despite the fact that “Nothing All The Time” is a debut for the band, Tuff Slang already sound as though they’ve been together for years, working together to present a cohesive, catchy new tune.

The Decoys Announce Canadian Tour Dates + New Album Date

the decoysThree-piece rock group The Decoys just announced their brand new album, In Our Blood, will be out on April 15th, 2016. The album, a follow-up to their 2011 debut, Stripped, Bare, and On Display, is already gaining buzz, thanks to the catchy new single, “Don’t Hesitate.”

“We definitely have a power trio kind of sound now. We have a different bass player on this album, and when we parted ways with our former lead guitarist, I went from playing rhythm guitar to playing lead guitar. We’re also better players and songwriters at this point. […] We’ve dug a little deeper this time around,” explains Matt Stanley (vox/guitars). “[…] The best inspiration for writing songs is experiencing the world; getting out there, playing live, and being a touring rock ’n’ roll band.”

The Decoys will be supporting the new album on tour, kicking off on April 14th. Check out all dates below.

Alexa Ferr Releases New Single, “Hit The Switch”

Alexa FerrR&B/pop artist Alexa Ferr has just released her new single, “Hit The Switch.” The twenty year old triple threat has steadily been making a name for herself, and the single is another addition to her ever-expanding discography.

“‘Hit The Switch’ is about meeting someone who changed your view on being single vs. being in a relationship,” explains Alexa. “The song is personal for me, [because] after a bad break-up, I swore off of relationships and wanted to be single forever. I thought nothing or no one could change that until I met someone who ‘hit the switch’ on me and made me want to be with them; want to be in a relationship.”
