Orlando, Florida post-hardcore outfit I Met a Yeti dropped their latest single “All Magic Users Swim In The Loomy Gloom” on August 16th. The single is off the five-piece band’s sophomore EP Camp Yeti which is due out October 4th. “All Magic Users” is an explosive track of intricate lead guitars and R&B inspired vocal melodies that can only be described as beautiful. Every performance on this track is executed with deadly precision; guitarists Anthony Gonzales and Ricardo Antonio Rodriguez provide some aggressive riffage and clean-cut lead sections, while bassist Lui Wancel and drummer Alexander Torresola hold down an absolutely air-tight rhythm section. Vocalist Daisy Chamberlin delivers a wonderful vocal performance ladened with soaring harmonies and infectious melodies, but do not be mistaken; Chamberlin’s screamed vocals are a true testament to their vocal prowess.
I Met a Yeti broke into the math rock scene during the summer of 2016 with their single “Windows.” The track features a cacophony of clean toned guitars, dreamy vocal melodies, and somber screams. The five-piece released their debut EP …I Can Still See You later that year just before Christmas; the release features face-melting tracks such as “Is It Free, Or Isn’t It?” and “Where’s Nelson?” which ends with a rather cheeky quote by Sassy the Sasquatch from DIY animator Jarrad Wright’s critically acclaimed web-series, The Big Lez Show.
The band will be embarking on an eight day tour of the southeast and Texas in support of Camp Yeti. This tour will kick off on October 13th in Denton, Texas and conclude on October 21st in Orlando. “All Magic Users Swim In The Loomy Gloom” is currently available on all major streaming platforms.

Brick Township, NJ-based singer-songwriter Kelli Faith dropped her latest single “More” off her upcoming album “21” on August 9th. Clocking in at just over four minutes, the acoustic country pop-rocker sings passionately about finding a love that is not only reciprocated, but also open and honest. The track opens with the rhythmic strumming of an acoustic guitar, with Faith’s vocals effortlessly dancing over the chords as the bass and lead guitar begin to round out the arrangement. After the first chorus, the drums begin to kick in and song rips into a sweet, classic rock-influenced guitar solo that makes it immediately clear that this song is perfect for summer. As a another verse rolls through the listener is brought back into a chorus that is not only catchy, but also makes it clear that Faith isn’t afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. The music video for “More” showcases Faith performing her song as she walks along the beautiful beaches of Asbury Park, as well as touching acting performances from Faith and her partner Jonathan Greulich.
Faith’s music career began in 2015 with the formation of Manasquan, New Jersey pop punk band Before It’s Too Late. Faith energetically fronted the quintet as they wrote songs inspired by bands such as Hey Monday, All Time Low, and State Champs. In 2016, the band released an EP entitled “Miscommunication” and played a plethora of shows across their home state, opening for bands such as Hinder and The Stolen. Faith personally took a lot of musical influence from Hey Monday’s Cassadee Pope, and after Before It’s Too Late disbanded in the fall of 2017, she translated that inspiration into a new solo project.
Fans can stream “More” on all major streaming platforms, as well as Faith’s debut full-length record “21” which is due out on September 20th. Faith’s late 2018 single “Him” is also available on all streaming services and will be featured on the upcoming album. Faith will be performing songs from her new record at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch, New Jersey on September 5th. She will be sharing the stage with acts such as The Ian Walsh Band, Holdn, and Aqua Aura. The show is available for all ages, and fans can gain entrance for a cover fee of ten dollars.
HereComeHere has treated us to yet another single from their upcoming full-length! The track, “Crybaby”, premiered exclusively on Kill The Music. The 90s rap-rock inspired single is the second off the group’s album, Chernobyl, which will release on April 8th.
