PopMatters premieres Extravision’s newest single “The Fear of Missing Out”!

I began to focus on big-picture realizations I was having…such as…recognizing and overcoming conditioned fears I had built up for my first 28 years. This song came from wanting to think about death in a pleasant way, what I imagine might happen when we die and realizing that everyone in my life, friend and enemy, is important in my growth as a human.

Extravision is preparing to release their debut album Waking Up on February 16th!

Vents Magazine premiered the first single, “Moments of Clarity,” praising its “sweet classic textures…[and] haunting vocals.”

Like much of the album, ‘Moments of Clarity’ is about death. Biologically, it’s important to fear death and to dial in survival. Spiritually, I began to realize that death is a healthy thing to think about and that it will be okay to have been forgotten, “to become dirt and give back while there is time.” This song is an ode to letting my mind wonder what the hell is going on here, and to remind myself that everything will be okay, whatever it is. — Extravision

All Things Go premieres The Slowdown’s new single “Look Older”

All Things Go premieres The Slowdown‘s new single “Look Older”:

Gorgeous, though drenched despair, ‘Look Older’ plunges into the solipsistic trench at the heart of the human condition. Guitars and synth dance in annular swirls as a voice skates across the frozen backdrop and breathily delivers the bad news: we’re all painfully and irrevocably lonely. Coolly delivered heartache has never sounded so sweet.

Gloom Balloon reveals first single off forthcoming album with a premiere on Vents Magazine

Gloom Balloon premiere “Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom” with Vents Magazine. Stream the first single from their sophomore LP, Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom, Under the Stars and the Moon, out September 1st on Maximum Ames Records:

The song is the center piece of the record. It’s all about the stages of falling in love. It’s a lot of stories rolled into one and I had to write this one to make me believe I could even start thinking about making a new record. The production is like all my musical influences wrapped into a big box with a tag that says ‘I love you, now pull me into the bathroom and kiss me already!’
