Wild Ones // 'Mirror Touch' Release Day!

Portland's infectious, upbeat pop outfit, Wild Ones, have finally dropped their long awaited album, Mirror Touch. In this album, the band pushes into uncharted, futuristic and sonic territory while exploring the themes of isolation and the self. Mirror Touch innovates pop and solidifies their sound with earned confidence.

Danielle Sullivan of Wild Ones on Mirror Touch (from The Le Sigh's premiere of the music video for "Standing in the Back at Your Show") –

"Mirror Touch considers the boundaries between self and other when creating art. How do you know yourself when there are a thousand voices considering every angle, analyzing every choice? On this record there are love songs, anxious songs, and songs of isolation. My favorite pop songs contain heartache in seductive packaging, like some kind of emotional Trojan horse. This is our version. It took us two years to make and we went through multiple renditions of everything. What you have now is our truest, most honest expression of the last few years. We're happy to share it with you."

"Mirror Touch" can be found everywhere online so stream or purchase their album now at your favorite location!

Us and Us Only // "Kno" Music Video Premiere

The new music video for Baltimore natives' Us and Us Only's new track "Kno" centers a relationship losing its momentum around stunning pastel visuals, "the whole thing resonating far more greatly than a sub four-minute music video has the right to do," as raved by Gold Flake Paint. Simple shots of colorful flowers, neon signs, and floating bubbles matched with the complications of a dwindling commitment are wrapped together with the song's mulling beat and gentle vocals, creating a poignant, indie package.

Check out the "punishing and weighty watch" below and pre-order the band's upcoming album Full Flower here.

Us and Us Only // "Full Flower" Video

In their new music video for the title track off their upcoming album Full Flower, Baltimore indie rock group Us and Us Only perform under a moody light show in a makeshift living room set up in an empty warehouse. Clrvynt calls the video an exciting addition for old fans and "the perfect introduction" for newcomers who are unfamiliar with the band's subversive riffs and dejected lyrics.

Check out Us and Us Only's upcoming dates and grab a pre-order for Full Flower.

Full Flower will be available on CD, cassette, vinyl, and digitally on July 14th.
