They were out of touch: Holding Poison move on after being the ‘Sitting Duck’ on excellent new alt-rock single

Holding Poison lay it all on the line via their unwavering and excellent new single, that will have your whole body shivering with excitement called ‘Sitting Duck‘.

London, UK-based indie alt-rock act Holding Poison, are one of those prodigious bands you listen to once in your life and never (ever) forget them. They push to the front of the line and show such undeniable quality on this gritty song, made with unadulterated fireworks, that sparks happily in your hungry-for-good-music brain.

This is the magnetic story about being with someone who isn’t in the same reality zone as you and you sadly fell short of their totally unfathomable expectations. They are so out of touch to the current world, that it boggles your mind and they are totally lost in their own mind. The sad thing is that you are now a sitting duck and feel let down, with only the pond to look at now to reflect, pondering life as you stare and realize that you won’t put yourself in this sticky situation again.

They rhythmically charge together like two batteries interlocking tightly, this is such a fiery effort from a new band in name, but old school in nature, as they power on to put those lonely hairs on the back of your neck, on full alert to this sonic soundscape of the very highest order.

Sitting Duck‘ from London’s alt-rock outfit Holding Poison, is a spellbinding performance that has you amazed and delighted you pressed play. They have unearthed a real gem here that is best served with a cuppa hot tea and the volume turned up on full.

Fast-rising Massachusetts band RoseR rock in with the truthfully awesome ‘Nice, Guy’

Fast-rising Massachusetts band RoseR rock in with the truthfully awesome ‘Nice, Guy‘ and this fantastic 5 piece act are back with a supremely memorable new single. This is for all those nice guys out there that are going for the wrong girl.

Lowell, Massachusetts is the home of this fiery band with an indie rock sound that is such a nice massage to the ears and has a vibe that is so fascinating. With lusty vocals that is backed up with a funky bass-line and lyrics that get to the message right away without fuss. You can feel the jazz, blues, and grunge influences here and this is a treat.

This is the story about how a nice guy can fall for the wrong girl. They are perfect for each other and there are so many laughs. The problem is that he loves her so much and she sees him as a friend. They flirt and joke around but deep inside she doesn’t realize that this is a guy that will care for her so much and be loyal. She doesn’t see it and he will be chasing this love for years and his heart will be broken unfortunately.

Nice, Guy‘ from the excellent Massachusetts band RoseR is a thunderous single that shows us their quality yet again. They show their experience and creativity to the max here and this is one of the most promising indie rock tunes you will hear in 2020.

Atlanta band Rujen are quite brilliant on reflective single ‘Tarot’

Rujen is a Indie-Psych Rock band from Atlanta and they return with a brilliant new single called ‘Tarot‘.

Tarot‘ from Rujen is an indie-neo-psychedelic rock mixture that makes even the best chef blush, They love to create vibrant, densely layered atmospheres of tones, textures, and introspective vocals that swell, echo, and distort with fierce synergy. This self-proclaimed statement is totally true. Not a band to give themselves too much of a big head, they instead make incredible music with heart.

This is all about not knowing what the future holds and life being a big game. There is thunder and lightning everywhere and you need to be on your toes. It’s your time now and this is about doing what is best to make this music dream happen.

I love the soundtrack here. The production is fantastic and I like the softly delivered vocals that keeps you cool and calm. The song is of such standard that this could be in a movie.

Tarot‘ from Rujen is a standout single full of road-trip wanderings that is encapsulated perfectly by this fine Atlanta band.
