“The name is part homage to David Bowie’s ‘Bewlay Brothers,’ which I often sang as half of an acoustic duo in high school; and part telling myself to ‘hush,’ be quiet, stop saying you’re gonna do it someday and just do it. Releasing something, for me, has been a long time coming.” Hush Bewlay
"Chapell's music tries to explore the real world. How many of us look back in a combination of admiration and envy at the king and the queen of our high school prom? For some people, the prom was the high point of their lives. For most of us, that period was a never ending scene of awkward interactions.” Alan Chapell
“Hailing Ishimura exists to tell a story. The part of the story that ‘We Did It To Survive’ exists in finds our adventurers at their lowest point. The music very much informs that with the dark tones and heavy riffs,” Hailing Ishimura
Agenda 109’s single “Off Limits” is from the album Frustrated. It’s an angry rock song leaning towards punk in its attitude, and is about unattainable love—but not necessarily about unrequited love. “Let the music eat up your negative energy!” Peter says about the single.
The song begins with a distorted guitar riff punctuated by bright piano notes and compelling rhythms from the drums and bass, its melodies immediately catchy and intuitive to the listener while at the same time impressively capturing the bittersweet emotion conveyed through its lyrics.
I remember music has been a passion of mine, but I am now in the fortunate position to be able to make a full living from my music, mainly through playing live shows. My new single 'Let Me Know' is releasing on the 29th July and I’m really excited for it! Joe Wilkinson
"Most of the music was written first by our bass player and then presented to the band which then a complete collaboration started and the song started to take more shape and a life of its own and each member was able to put their prints on it." The Pontiacs
“Snow Crocs,” is a catchy indie rock tune, whose name was inspired by an idea that Everett jokingly came up with while he and Chris were hiking in the trails of Calais, Vermont. Everett pondered about there being some offshoot breed of crocodiles that lived and survived in the snowy trails of the Northeast; it'd be particularly frightening as they'd be burrowed in the snow, awaiting their chance to attack hikers along the trail. And thus, when they started toying with the catchy riff that the song is based around, "Snow Crocs" was born!
“What I would like first time listeners to know is that there is indeed a sweet spot between mainstream and indie, that I - along with many other artists - cover with my music. Profound and deep lyrics, yet wrapped in captivating tunes. Too unconventional to be mainstream, yet too catchy to be indie.” Achim Hofmeyer AKA To Hell With Tradition
