Cold Weather Kids look ahead on debut single, "Shaken"

Cold Weather Kids believe that there's life after a bad break up on their buoyant debut single, "Shaken." Led by Allison and Ryan Scottie's passionate vocals, the pop-punk quartet counterbalance layers of electric guitar with start-stop rhythms as they keep their heads held high. The up-tempo romp sounds both familiar and inviting, crafting dynamic, energetic melodies that sound youthful and full of promise.

Adam Melchor's "Joyride" is a lesson in letting go

Adam Melchor's songs are stories about family—and how the experiences he's acquired with time gain a deeper meaning as he grows up. On his latest single, "Joyride," the LA-via-New Jersey singer-songwriter writes about the challenge of letting go when it's the best course of action to take, using his parents' stolen childhood truck as a symbol that mirrors their eventual divorce—a lesson in perspective that taught him to value those valuable moments before they're gone. The clamor of a trumpet only augments his reflection, an instrument that brings clarity of thought to his otherwise acoustic rumination.

"Joyride" follows the release of his sophomore EP, Plan on You, which was released earlier this year. Melchor will join Rodrigo and Gabriella on a string of tour dates, including a hometown show at the Greek Theater on July 23. Watch the accompanying video below. Juan Rodríguez

Cannons' "Fire for You" sparks disco fever, release debut album Shadows

Electro-pop trio Cannons have released their debut album, Shadows, featuring headlining powerhouse, “Fire for You." Vocalist Michelle Joy pushes out beautifully nostalgic lyrics of love, loss, and everything few and far between. Ryan Clapham and Paul Davis complete this trio, painting colorful baselines with a funky disco charm that keeps your head wrapped in a warm, hazy atmosphere—perfect for the Monday blues or the Friday jitters. There is no doubt in my mind that this album is slowly becoming the fuel to my work week.
