Who’s got new tunes? They got new tunes — here are five local artists who’ve got that new new all for you you.
New track from City on Down
City on Down has a new sound and a new song. The pop duo are taking their music in a modern synth-pop direction, as is evidenced with their brand new single All on You — think Imagine Dragons/The 1975/X Ambassador. Out on Fri. Sept. 29, the track was recorded at Truphonic Recording in West Ashley. To listen, find City On Down on soundcloud.com.
Sean Kelly goes solo
Music website Popdose premiered a new video by Sean Kelly (A Fragile Tomorrow), marking his debut into solo territory. A Fragile Tomorrow is certainly still intact, but the frontman is exploring new ground with upcoming release, Time Bomb, Baby. The new, and very first, solo track is “Syncopation,” a polished, electro debut accompanied by a visual-filled video, proving the musician can shine just fine on his own. Time Bomb, Baby is out on Fri. Oct. 13, and you can check out the video below and at popdose.com.
Mechanical River drops “Pomelos” vinyl
Joel T. Hamilton’s Mechanical River debuted a new website last week and released the long-awaited vinyl version of long-time fan favorite “Pomelos” and “Sleeping With You,” a track the artist originally released via Paste Magazine. His video for “Pomelos,” which features the vinyl’s cover art by Rebecca Harrelson, was premiered over the summer by Billboard Magazine. You can view the video and order the new seven-inch record via mechanicalriver.com.
Indianola’s “Love to Go” gets a release
Owen Beverly’s Indianola recently announced they’ll return to the Lowcountry to finish recording their debut LP this week, but not before satiating fans with a song “from the vault.” You may recognize “Love to Go” from the band’s live shows, but now the rockbilly firecracker “Love to Go,” inspired by Buddy Holly, Sun Records, the Ramones, and Bruce Springsteen, can be streamed on Spotify.
Regina Ferguson collabs with Ben Fagan
Regina Ferguson released a vibrant new video last week, a cover of Calvin Harris’ (featuring Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Big Sean) “Feels, off Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. The song is a duet with Ben Fagan, who is also featured in the video filmed by Alex Veazey of CHOP MEDIA. Thomas Kenney of the experimental group Terraphonics produced and mixed the track, which you can sample yourself on Ferguson’s YouTube channel.
