The Fountainhead Focus recently took some time to check out our own HereComeHere‘s newest release, Chernobyl. “After starting with a much more pop-punk sound,” the blog commented, “the group (with a small lineup change) started to create something different – a more melodic, complex and even slightly darker sound.” The full article takes you track-by-track through the album, carefully studying each song. When discussing the album’s fifth track, “Sugarr”, the blog acknowledged a crucial factor about the bands progression. “Their songs have important lyrics,” noted Fountainhead, “lyrics that will stick in your head.” These lyrics, along with honing in on their sound, is what really sets this album apart from the band’s previous work.

Our favorite NYC synth driven pop-rockers, Shiffley, have just released a brand new Spotify playlist titled “Sleep…Who Needs It?”

“Sleep… Who Needs It?” has some of our favorite nighttime anthems.” explains the band, “It follows the arch of your standard night out–it starts off optimistic, picks up with some alt night club grooves, then slows down toward the end. The next single off our upcoming album will fit perfectly on this playlist. Keep an eye out because it’s coming your way soon!”

The playlist features The Naked and Famous, Bear Hands, Fitz and the Tantrums, Fickle Friends, and more.
