Miko & The Musket premiere new single, "On Your Mark"

Today, Miko & The Musket premiere their new single, "On Your Mark." Taken from their forthcoming self-titled EP, due for release this September, the single is an infectious combination of jazz infused indie-folk, with a subtle R&B undertones. The track kicks off with a vintage rock guitar riff, and we are shortly greeted by frontman, Miko's spirited voice that has the soothing buttery undertones of a hip hop artist.

Video Review: sami.the.great "Hear Me Now"

Breaking away from her traditional folk roots, sami.the.great last week released a video for her latest single, “Hear Me Now,” which sees the Brooklyn-based, Iranian-American singer/songwriter take a more psychedelic approach to the track.Never one to deny the fact that ice-cream does help to mend a break up, her stellar voice carries a strong sense of emotion and wit. “Hear Me Now” is a bold proclamation of Sami’s incredibly upbeat disposition, which is hard to ignore beneath the single’s…See More
