Laure Z is giving us a bright shining song with her single “I Will Follow You”. With the whistling and ukulele this song has a light airy feel to it. The second and third verse goes into a more rounded sound with more instruments coming in giving more of a pop sound. But it is definitely that first and fourth verse that gives one that folk springy sound that is fun to hear during a more dreary time of year with our weather. “I Will Follow You” comes from Laure Z’s EP Girls Don’t Wait, which will be available on December 1. Until then enjoy Laure Z’s springy single “I Will Follow You” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Common Deer is sharing with our listeners again. This time it is for their music video for their single “Glass”. The single keeps with their folk/pop feel that I enjoy. “Glass” is a slower contemplative song that flows around you. The music doesn’t make any hard waves, but is soothing even though it talks about relationships and how there can be waves. The music video is really nicely done and shows all the group as they perform. Take a contemplative breath and enjoy Common Deer’s music video for “Glass” through their The Strombo Show’s YouTube channel – Richard:
“The Deep End” takes one on a journey like all relationships are. Oparu gives us a 1990’s style single with the powerful instrumentals and electronic sound. When she goes into the chorus of the single the music swells up over her sound as she is singing “deep end”. For this song I believe that might be intentional, because in the deep end you tend to struggle as the water is washing over you, very nice symbolism. The lyric video takes you on a journey as well through waterways and city scapes. All around a very nice sound. Here’s Oparu’s lyric video for “The Deep End” through her YouTube channel – Richard:

They Call Him Zone gives us that European dance club feel with his music video for his single “Death Drive”. Another great song for the Halloween season. With an electro/psychedelic sound the single has the right amount of darkness, but still has that bass beat for the club. Take a ride with They Call Him Zone and his music video for “Death Drive” through his YouTube channel – Richard:
The Dot And The Line is sharing with our listeners then Synth single “Wait For You”. With the beat that the duo have given this single it has a little bit of edge and darkness to it. But the lyrics are one that most want to hear from the one the love…that “I’ll wait for you”. The lead vocals are done in a what I would call a feathery aspect that softens the bass beat with a nice contrasting sound. Check out The Dot And The Line’s “Wait For You” through SoundCloud – Richard:

The Make Pretend’s is giving our listeners a taste of their style with their music video “Sorry I Let You Down”. The style of the single as well as how the music video was shot really harkens back to the late 1980’s, early 1990’s. Even the bands name The Make Pretend gives that 1980’s feeling. So everyone that loves that styling will dig this and the video to boot. “Sorry I Let You Down” is from the band’s album Fortune Factory which is available now and they are letting our listeners check out their video and then go pick up their album. And for those that still love a physical album the band is happy to say you have that option with Fortune Factory. Here’s The Make Pretend’s music video for “Sorry I Let You Down” through their YouTube channel – Richard:
If you like the hard rock/heavy metal sound you will love Ascending Dawn’s single “Cannonball”. The single has that hard driving beat and nice vocals that you will enjoy. The video uses black and white photography with quick cuts to make the video interesting. “Cannonball” is from the group’s upcoming LP Coalesce, which is scheduled for a December 1 release date. Here’s Ascending Dawn’s music video for “Cannonball” through their YouTube channel – Richard:
