EJ Carey debuts heartfelt single "Rising Tides, Crashing Skies"

The enthusiastic singing of Boston's EJ Carey hooks you ten seconds into her new single "Rising Tides, Crashing Skies." As the charming acoustic guitar overture makes way for the song's lush harmonies, Carey ramps up the vocal intensity to deliver a powerful message in the chorus: a declaration of emancipation from a toxic relationship. EJ puts a piece of her heart in every lyric, allowing the vibrant red passion of her words to carry the song beside dynamic drums and gushing electric guitar embellishments. The pop-rock genre that EJ embraces is tailored for today's chart-topping-music scouts, and the tinge of country helps too. It is the artist's honesty that shines through and engages the listener for an experience that is a textbook example of music's absorbing power. EJ Carey recently completed several gigs throughout Massachusetts, the last of which was in Winthrop. A new album is in the works, and we are excited about that. Streaming below is the singer-songwriter's new single, enjoy! - Rene Cobar





Coral Moons debut with soulful singles, play Gulu-Gulu Cafe 08.23

Let the retro-rock vibes of Coral Moons wash over you for a fresh Monday boost. The band’s soul tendencies give way to intertwining electric guitar riffs that are supplemented by a deep bass groove, snappy drums, and the sharp vocals of singer-songwriter Carly Kraft. Upbeat on the choruses, committed to the breakdowns, and keen on bringing a ‘60s and ‘70s cheer to the modern age, this group is wholly faithful to itself. The band’s debut record Quarter Life Crisis is due out September 12th, with two singles out for it already: “Dive In” and “Fall in Love” (streaming) promise a debut record dripping with rock ‘n’ roll goodness, scented with nu-soul perfume. The band’s next gig is at the much-beloved Gulu-Gulu Cafe in Salem, MA on August 23rd. - Rene Cobar

Somerset offers grandiose alt-rock music, plays O'Brien's 09.01

Boston's Somerset isn't content with the bare bones alt-rock performance; its particular brand of music is grandiose. The band's upcoming fall record has spawned its second single, "Revere Street," a spectacular display of slick guitar arpeggios, shimmering piano accompaniments, thunderous harmonies, and a much-appreciated opening bassline. The group's deep arsenal of sounds is primed for large venues, evoking the spirit of late '90s alternative rock while modernizing it. The kick drum work in the new single is something to relish in, as is the heroic guitar solo in the climax: the song is a job well done. The band will be performing at O'Brien's Pub in Allston on September 1st and kicking off what is sure to be a busy autumn. We are streaming "Revere Street" below for you. - Rene Cobar





Oceans of the Moon is ready to hypnotize you, sold out show at Sinclair 10.16

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, Oceans of the Moon is the kind of group that demands your full attention. Take the band’s music video for its single “Blowing My Mind” as a solid example of its experimental music’s ability to entrance. The footage flashes various objects set to a commercial all-white background as the synths and guitars simmer. The vocals, seemingly on a loop, melt into the mind as the carousel of objects lures you deeper into the video, before you know it, you are hitting that “Replay” button. It is the combination of ominous sounds, fierce vocals, and a deceptively groovy beat that keeps the listener swirling in the band’s electronic vortex. The group’s self-titled debut record is out now, with a performance set for the Sinclair on October 16th. We are streaming the music video for “Blowing My Mind” in celebration. - Rene Cobar
