“Armchair” by Emerson Star (Premiere)

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 4.08.54 PM
Emerson Star is a band of dudes who first met as kids on a schoolyard in Burbank. Their latest leaked single, “Armchair” (off their forthcoming EP Great Escaper), is a groovy, psychedelic ode of harmonies which tell a spooky tale of long-lost love.

“I went back to your old apartment to see if the past was right where we left it.”

Emerson Star will perform on July 16th at Chinatown Summer Nights.

“Runaway” Music Video by Roniit

Roniit Promo2Burbank denizen Roniit is a self-appointed “dark pop queen” and while she might be challenged for that title she makes a strong case with her Varien-produced single “Runaway” (off her forthcoming concept album). Lyrically based on heartbreak, the track opens with sparse trap beats and dreary synths which intensify as her vox glides into a swell:

“Why don’t you run away with my heart?”

And here’s its aptly surreal music video:

"Kangaroo Court" by Capital Cities

3505792110-1A lot has happened for Capital Cities in the past half-year. The electro-pop duo is now signed to Capitol Records and their single “Safe And Sound” from their self-titled debut EP (Capitol/Lazy Hooks) is receiving West Coast radio play. With their upcoming national tour (dubbed the “Dancing With Strangers Tour”) these hairy dudes are ditching their Burbank studio and turning venues into dance floors. Here’s their second single, “Kangaroo Court,” which mimics a vintage video game score interrupted by horn blasts:

And here’s footage of Capital Cities preparing for their tour along with a message: “Concerts are not much fun if you don’t have tickets for them.” Very true.

Capital Cities will perform tonight with Gold Fields for the Pandora sponsored College Basketball Fan Fest at L.A. Live. The event is FREE, but you must RSVP in order to attend.
