Alt Rock Artist Hellwaffles has released their most relatable single yet with “CoronaRock”


On their never-ending mission to make us all feel a little better about the chaos we’re living in, Hellwaffles has released their most relatable single to date “CoronaRock”.

With snarling tones which is sure to appease fans of Pavement and Dinosaur Jr, Corona Rock offers a nostalgic escape from our absurdist reality which is plagued with profound disappointment.

I’ll never get tired of hearing artist’s unique perspective on the lockdown. I always hit play in the hopes that I’ll find connection in the lyrics which I’ve been unable to find elsewhere. I struck gold with CoronaRock. On the grand scale of things, our 2020 plans being scuppered may feel like a first world problem. But CoronaRock reminds you that your disappointment is ubiquitous and valid while feeding you punchy anthemic Garage Rock.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can hear CoronaRock for yourselves. It will be available to stream via Spotify from the date of the release.

Nathan Degner – The Emma Song: Experimentally Plaintive Lo Fi Art Rock

The prolific Indie enigma Nathan Degner has released yet another stellar track with his latest single ‘The Emma Song’. His experimentally bluesy rhythm which comes alive through a pinch of psychedelia certainly hasn’t lost its shine. Whether you love Lo Fi or hate it, the production of the track only adds to the quintessential charm of his style.

Whilst I have adored the playful lyricism on Nathan Degner’s earlier releases, with the Emma Song, it’s perceptible that the singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist has poured significantly more emotion into track. The forlornity even becomes tangible through the progression of the instrumentals which are almost allowed to translate as aural frustration.

You can Check out the Emma Song for yourselves now by heading over to SoundCloud now, or head on over to Nathan Degner’s official website to sink your teeth into more of the up and coming artist’s nostalgically inclined rhythms.
