Music Monday: Dark Waves – “I Don’t Wanna Be In Love” (Official Video)

DarkWaves

My heart has a new musical love – Dark Waves.

Dark Waves has been on my radar for a few months and finally last week they released a new video for the song ‘I Don’t Wanna Be In Love’. This song is just so intense you can feel the pain of someone who was hurt and simply dealing with the aftermath of a broke relationship and the associated pain.

I think the beautiful haunting hypnotic melody, with its honest lyrics makes this one of the most painfully beautiful songs I’ve heard in a long time.

Be sure to check Dark Waves out on Twitter and Instagram, you won’t be disappointed!

Video: Nico Vega – “Bang Bang” (Behind the Scenes of A&E “Bonnie & Clyde”)

Nico Vega- Bang, Bang

Nico Vega has released a video on the making of their remake of Nancy Sintra’s ‘Bang,Bang’, for A&E’s Bonnie and Clyde movie starring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger. I will admit I had no desire to see another Bonnie and Clyde remake but hearing Nico Vega’s version of this song had me sold on this movie. Listening to Aja’s voice gives me chills because its just so perfect for this song.

Now if you enjoyed Bang, Bang as much as I did you can get the single for $0.69 cents!!! Click Link: http://bit.ly/1iwBfY3

Video: Haim – Wrecking Ball (cover song)

Even though I havent posted much about Haim but I really like this band and I LOVE their version of Miley Cyrus song Wrecking Ball…..should I dare to say more than Miley’s version…? yes! That’s right I said it!

Damn Haim!!

Video: The Love Junkies – Maybelene

This isn’t my usual type of music but the song ‘Maybelene’ by Australian band The Love junkies is so freaking catchy! The Love Junkies can be heard on Triple J and played Southbound and Perth Big Day Out. I can imagine they put on an insane show! So i advise to catch them while you can!

Saint Motel @ Tarfest

Indie band Saint Motel played a free show, the Tarfest at the La Brea Tarpits in LA. There is nothing like watching good music as the sunset in LA.

Video: The Filthy Souls – Destroy You

Today I’m like a girl in a candy store…..The Filthy Souls have released a video for their song ‘Destroy You’, which has been in rotation on KROQ’s Locals Only show for over a month!! So excited for this band!!

One thing I love about the video is the fact its in Black & White. Most would think it would be easy to film this way but I honestly think its more challenging and it has a certain artistic flair.

Nico Vega – Lead to Light (Bronson Island)

Since I saw Nico Vega open for Imagine Dragons I’ve been slightly obsessed with them. At the moment Nico Vega is on tour with Crash Kings and they took a moment to stop by Bronson Island to perform an accoustic-ish version of their song ‘Lead to Light’ from their EP ‘Fury oh Fury’.

Never fails lead singer, Aja, gives me chills whenever she sings!

Also, Nico Vega currently has a pledge campaign in progress to raise money for their full length album. If you like what you see check out their campaign! PLEDGE NOW!

Owls invades the Satellite

Last night I went to the Satellite in Silverlake to see new LA band called Owls. This is my second time seeing the Owls and after each set I’m even more impressed with their sound and damn near do cartwheels over the fact they have a really good lead singer. Sadly, I’ve been seeing more bad lead singers than good and the Owls is simply a refreshing band. Despite the early set time they seemed to draw the crowd in and even got people on the floor to even momentarily forget they’re in LA and actually dance.

Its offical……I’m looking forward to their next gig!
