New Music Updates

Here are a few highlights of some upcoming releases featured on RELEASE WAVE.

Skeever's "Needle & Thread" EP, inspired by '90s shoegaze and grungy alt-rock, is a sonic treat featuring high-octane riffs and walls of guitars reminiscent of Swervedriver and Hum.

Draag's upcoming EP, "Actually, the quiet is nice," promises warped guitars and dreamy harmonies in the lead single "Orb weaver," continuing their unique shoegaze sound praised in their debut album.

Prepare for One Step Closer's melodic hardcore expansion in "All You Embrace," capturing anthemic tracks with influences from hardcore, emo, and '90s alternative, a bold sound fans of Koyo, Anxious, and Title Fight will cherish.

With their return after over five years, From Indian Lakes presents "Head Void," featuring an intense sound blending synths and guitars, inspired by bands like Mew and Valleyheart, a must-listen for fans of atmospheric indie rock.

Knocked Loose unleashes a chaos-filled expedition in their upcoming LP, "You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To," pushing boundaries with intense metalcore aggression and seismic breakdowns, creating a captivating sonic journey through ten gripping tracks.
