Squiggly Lines - Dream Pop Single "Dragonfly", New Album 09.21

Squiggly Lines is a mysterious indie pop band from Toronto. Their latest single is a dreamy pop track titled “Dragonfly” which is, in their words “a song about bugs”. This track has somber tones and rather sad lyrics about missing a person all the way in Montreal at first before kickin’ in with a more upbeat B section. The melancholy sound of the verse still has a comforting feel to it. I hear some Homeshake vibes in this tune. Squiggly Lines has a new album being released on September 21st. – Kris Gies

Refs release EP "Now" + play Elsewhere on 09.12

New York City indie-soul-pop duo, Refs, released their new EP, “Now” on September 10th. Consisting of Zach Lipkins and Richard Saunders, the group has been active since 2015, releasing single “Pain Goes Away” as their debut. “Now” is comprised of four songs, each with its own unique feel and beat. The opener, "Bones," has a solid beat underlying the smooth lyrics, creating a gratifying experience for the listener. "What a Shame" is upbeat, despite the slurred lyrics describing getting over "it", whatever "it" may be. "New York," on the other hand shakes things up, a slow and melancholy melody accompanying soulful pensive lyrics. "Now" closes with "Little Late," a song both calm yet strangely energizing. You can catch the duo at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NY on September 12 at 6 pm. - Karigan Wright

Step Children release single on World Suicide Prevention Day

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), Step Children released their latest single, “Hot-Wired Cars.” Band member Derek Shaw says the song is “…full of memories, regret and hope…people who are hurting that badly so their best to hide what’s really happening.” The song is a tribute to several friends who have recently taken their own lives. Sonically, the song has a touch of Elton John, some twang and pop. We’re always down for a tune that helps raise awareness and reminds us to love each other and listen to each other. - Lucille Faulkner
