Discover & Download - SWMRS

There’s never been a punk band like SWMRS. That’s probably because it’s too limiting to label the Oakland quartet, “a punk band.” You might initially detect the caustic broadsides of The Clash and the amphetamine bubblegum of the Ramones. But within the carefully penned lyrics, propulsive energy, and raw honesty, you can hear the echoes of Public Enemy and Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest to Kurt Cobain.

Discover & Download - Junge Junge

Junge Junge came to be after Rochus Grolle and Michael Noack, both separate DJs at the time, saw each other at multiple gigs. Because they really jived, the two teamed up, and it’s a good thing they did because together, they wrote the song “Beautiful Girl“ which immediately caught the attention of Universal Scandinavia at a beach bar in Ibiza. Apparently Grolle gave the track to the DJ, and unbeknownst to him, the A&R manager of Universal Music Sweden was there—and he loved the song so much he offered them a record deal that same day.

Discover & Download - Hembree

Sometimes a chorus just can’t wait. It’s too good. It has to come first. That’s the case with Hembree’s hard-hitting new single “Holy Water.” It’s only the second song released by the band but it shows a sonic ambition and clarity of purpose that’s formidable.

Featuring a seamless mix of distinctly modern sounds, a timeless melody, and Isaac Flynn’s spirited vocals, “Holy Water” realizes the promise of synthetic sounds to elevate the organic into a sublime hybrid form.​
