Emmit Fenn’s Vision Is Amplified In His Highly Anticipated Single “Blinded”

Indie-electronic act Overjoy unveils psychedelic “Holiday” music video + free download

Indie-electronic trio Overjoy debuted their groovy, eclectic sound last year with the release of their inaugural EP, Breakfast. Now, the LA-based outfit of longtime friends is back with more experimental work, this time in the form of their latest single “Holiday.”
The first single off of their sophomore offering Another EP which drops on Sept. 9, “Holiday” showcases the cinematic, lush soundscapes that define Overjoy’s boundary-breaking sound. Songstress LEX’ vocals cascade over a dreamy, instrumentally-driven production composed by group members Metty and Hoff. “Holiday” is paired with a kaleidoscopic, color-splashed music video that follows its protagonist’s psychedelic journey from a deserted island in search of fun and friendship.

Overjoy emerged from the reeds in 2015 with clear vision and a blank canvas. The Los Angeles-based trio has since built a devout following – harnessing a certain ability to evoke emotion through the speakers, Overjoy blends cinematic vocals, smart percussion and lush synth work, pushing dance music’s potential into new territories.

The outfit of longtime friends unveiled their debut ‘Breakfast EP’ last year via Sweat It Out. Hailed by THUMP for its “feel-good vibrations,” the two-track release displayed Overjoy’s dynamic range of sound design by mixing drums, keys and guitar into their electronic productions. Likewise their live performances are far from standard DJ sets and incorporate keyboard, drum machine, and tambourine anchored by songstress Lex serenading the crowd with her soothing croons.

Even prior to their 2015 debut EP, Overjoy’s shimmering singles had won worldwide radio love from Los Angeles to Berlin – seeing regular play by tastemaker stations Triple J, KCRW and Night Flight, as well as earning plaudits from artists RUFUS, Sinden and Bag Raiders.

Other Lives share Dan Deacon remix of ‘Easy Way Out’ + new single ‘Pattern’ + November London show

Other Lives are pleased to announce details of a new single ‘Pattern’ and a return to these shores in November.

Taken from Rituals, the band’s third album released earlier this year, ‘Pattern’ is underpinned by an atmospheric rhythmic pitter patter before vocalist Jesse Tabish comes into aural view and takes the listener on a melodic journey that is arguably an album highlight.

A remix, courtesy of Dan Deacon. of ‘Easy Way Out’ was premiered last week in the US on KCRW radio and sees Deacon add his distinctive electronic touches on the already moody and enchanting track.

Cold War Kids is Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Dann Gallucci, Joe Plummer and Matthew Schwartz. Formed in 2004, the band’s breakthrough debut Robbers & Cowards was released to considerable acclaim in 2006. The darker Loyalty To Loyalty followed two years later, while 2011’s Mine Is Yours introduced deeper anthemic qualities to the eclectic group’s catalog. 2013’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, featuring the hit single “Miracle Mile,” was a return to their raw live sound. The New York Times wrote, “This quartet from California plays the kind of elastic, vaguely soul-inspired indie-rock (the vocalist Nathan Willett commands a sinewy, undulating falsetto) that gets music critics shimmying in their desk chairs, clacking out breathless, immediate endorsements.” “Willett’s hugely impressive voice is the band’s calling card – there’s really no comparison,” said the Los Angeles Times. “Seeing CWK live is seeing them at their best. It’s a stage show full of raucous vigor… there’s never a dull moment,” said MTV News.

Fans who pre-order Hold My Home through iTunes will receive an automatic download of the album’s lead single, “All This Could Be Yours” as well as second album track, “First.”
