Silver Twins unveil new single "Bruce Lee," play Hotel Cafe on 6.27

Alex Marín was something of a nomad before he finally settled in Los Angeles. He soon met with William Gardner, and alongside drummer Grant Van Amburgh, assembled the definitive version of his latest project, Silver Twins. And their first single, "Bruce Lee" is a stellar summation of that period, a pulsing indie rocker with anthemic flourishes. Marín is the lovelorn chaser who's pining for affection, though judging by the song's killer, shout-worthy hook, he quells that urge with a joyous intensity.

Listen to "Bruce Lee" below. And make sure to catch the trio perform at Hotel Cafe on June 27. Juan Rodríguez


Soulful pop singer Kat Cunning to play House of Yes on 06.13

New York native, queer singer-songwriter Kat Cunning is no stranger to the stage. After earning a BFA in dance, performing on Broadway with Cirque du Soleil, and recently landing a recurring role on HBO, Kat has transitioned to the third aspect of the triple threat, and found a home in singing. In her new single, “Wild Poppies,” loosely based on The Wizard of Oz, she explores the idea of “a version of The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy doesn’t come home.” Cunning’s sultry, velvet voice perfectly intensifies the tragic lyrics “The courage to / See through you’d have kept me blind / We’re face to face / And I’ve pulled the curtain wide.” The passion of Lorde mixed with the pop feel of Billie Eilish results in a caramel-smooth stripped-down pop ballad of love, pain, and coming to terms with the truth of a relationship. She returned to her home of New York after finishing a sold-out national tour with singer-songwriter LP, and you can catch her live at House of Yes tonight (June 13th). - Lily Crandall, photo by Ben Trivett

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Tulpa

The Tibetan Buddhist believe that “’tulpa’ is a concept in mysticism and the paranormal of a being or object which is created through spiritual or mental powers.” Philly indie rockers, who bare the same name, just think that “it sounds cool.” And judging by the three-piece’s love for the single, “We Did It Again,” from 2003’s Biker Boyz soundtrack, which features the unholy union of Metallica, Ja Rule, and Swizz Beats, and their respect for artists like Palm, Vunderbar, and Mile High Club, we think that it would be fun to grab a few beers and pick their brains about music. You’ll have the opportunity to do so this Friday, July 15 at World Café Live, where Tulpa will be performing at the venue’s fledgling Spotlight Artist Series, alongside Brooklynites Goodfight. But first, you can learn a little more about The Deli Philly’s recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winners HERE.
