Soulspan – Hey

On their new track Hey, Soulspan call back to the storied days of the middle 1990s and adopt hints of Jane’s Addiction and Pearl Jam. The bit of jam-band meets indie-rock that the band crafts is unique but builds upon a rich tradition. Taut instrumentation and catchy, dreamy vocals will draw listeners in while the overall arrangement of Hey is something that will continue new twists and turns each and every time that listeners play the track. The rapid switches through tempos and sounds make this into a track that is ready for rock radio rotation. Give Hey a spin.

The video for Pushing Up has all of the whimsy present in the song adding an further level of depth to the composition; no matter what sort of music one finds themselves into, Mr. Flannery and His Feelings are able to speak volumes toward.

Ace Harper “Neon Heart”

Ace Harper’s “Neon Heart” is a strong blend of indie rock and pop styles, making for an absolutely dreamy sort of track that will tattoo its melodies deep into listeners’ hearts. The tremendous instrumentation present during Neon Heart deserves additional spins; there is a dark, rich, and absolutely brooding backing beat that provides additional complexity to the lyrics that Ace Harper is laying down here. There are hints of Echosmith and The Breeders; this is something wholly new that works well no matter where one decides to slot the single. Ace Harper brings considerable charisma to Neon Heart, to the degree that we will be eagerly anticipating more music coming from her later this year and next.
