New Track: "Cold Hands" - Broke Body

A punk-psych hybrid, "Cold Hands," the debut single from the trio of Broke Body, is out now via Good How Are You Records. Propelled by its backend and vocals that cut through by proximity, the recording creates an air of mystery. The dichotomy of free-floating yet aggressive vibes provides an intriguing perspective. "Cold Hands" will be featured on the band’s forthcoming EP Bleed.

Indie supergroup Pale Ramon releases self-titled debut LP on 05.24

Fans of Emanuel and the Fear will want to pay attention to frontman Emanuel Avyas's new project Pale Ramon, which Avyas has started with former Monuments and Oceanographer member Kevin Plessner. Their self-titled debut album will drop on May 24th; its latest single, "The Best Has Yet To Come," which we're premiering today, was inspired by a documentary of a Trump rally in Vegas, and told from the perspective of the young filmmaker trying to make sense of the seemingly decisive and hateful rhetoric being thrown around him. Pale Ramon will celebrate the album release on May 29th at Union Pool. - Will Sisskind
