Easy Roscoe Battle Heartbreak in Fierce New Single “Empty Handed”

easy-roscoe-620

If you missed the killer Acme showcase from Easy Roscoe last year, you skipped out on a true party. Known for their rocking live shows, the band have been honing their sound while recording a trove of new material.

Constantly at work on new tunes, Easy Roscoe released their impressive Piñata EP last year. But just a few months later, the boys are already back with a brand new single called “Empty Handed,” and it’s just as rhythmic and infectious as you’d expect. Although the lyrics talk about being beaten down by heartbreak, the rolling electric guitars and on-point percussion keep plenty of power driving through each line.

They just wrapped up a string of local dates, but don’t be surprised to see Easy Roscoe playing a hometown gig sooner rather than later. Until then, tide yourself over by checking out “Empty Handed” below.

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Jessie Early Resurrects ’80s-Inspired Pop With “Holy Ghost”

jessie-early-620

When it comes to ’80s pop revival, it seems musicians either unapologetically recreate the past or carefully lift elements to weave into the sounds and styles of the present. Local pop artist Jessie Early resurrects arena drums, guitar solos, and tightly arranged background vocals for single “Holy Ghost.”

Early elaborates on the track, saying, “My parents are both musicians and songwriters, so I grew up listening to Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty. Those were some of the sounds and arrangements that have really inspired this particular song.”

“Holy Ghost” premieres ahead of the EP release for Wild Honey, out on March 31. Produced by Jeremy Larson, Wild Honey is Early’s solo debut. Listen to the single below!

Machine Gun Kelly to Play Marathon Music Works May 2

MachineGunKelly-620

Though a rapper through and through, Cleveland’s Machine Gun Kelly has always drawn influence from and harbored an affinity for the rock scene, and that helped fuel his broad, crossover appeal as the MC cultivated an audience in his earliest days, performing just as easily at events like Warped Tour as with big names in hip hop. Signed to Bad Boy Records since 2011, Kelly, now only 26, drew immediate praise for his sharp delivery and punk rock, anarchist attitude upon the release of his debut a year later, and has managed to achieve unprecedented mainstream attention in the years since. Though his sophomore effort, 2015’s General Admission, fueled MGK’s buzz, a more recent string of unexpected acting roles, both in television (Showtime’s Roadies) and film (NerveViralSLC Punk 2) as well major collaborations like “Bad Things,” with former Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello, have cemented Kelly’s status as a certifiable star.

For only the second time ever, MGK has announced a headlining performance in Nashville, May 2 at Marathon Music Works, as part of an upcoming string of dates. Sure to be a rowdy, punk-spirited evening, bridging the gap between rock energy and hip hop stylings, tickets are available now right here.

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Coyote Talk Unveil Stylish Video for New Song “Spirit of the Night”

CoyoteTalk-620

Raised in between the urban sprawl of the Chicago and the sprawling cornfields of Indiana, singer-songwriter Joshua Frigo began writing the genesis of what would become Coyote Talk before ultimately relocating to Nashville, where the group’s folky, poppy, modern, alt-Americana meets indie rock sound feels right at home. Rounded out by Ben Goodrow and Alex Dobbert, the band released their first LP, Sister, in 2013, and have become of fixture in the city’s rich, underground musical landscape in the years since.

Ahead of new record Shangri-La, due out March 31, Coyote Talk have returned with a new single, “Spirit of the Night,” and an accompanying video, which they were kind enough to let us premiere ahead of the track’s official Feb. 17 release. Furthering their knack for fusing classic country and Americana with modern indie stylings, the song feels like a worthy leap forward for an already talented band, and the stylish, artsy, accompanying video compliments the feel of the song perfectly.

Watch “Spirit of the Night” below!
