Music Submission, Survibers

Always
Artist or Band Name: 
Survibers
SURVIBERS is a collective of like-minded creatives who live, love and work within music, yet they have found it necessary to create a space where raw and fertile ideas are allowed to flourish. 
 
The trio are ex Berklee students Francis and Katrina King-Smith and Aniff Akinola.
Aniff has been in the Manchester music scene since the late 80s (Voodoo Ray, Kirsty MacColl). Francis  went to the Royal Northern College of Music and Chethams. He met his wife Katrina at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA
and they have been writing music together for the past 8 years. She is originally from San Antonio, TX. 
 
The Survibers sonic canvas can be described as 'a socialist/left leaning blend of vocally hedonistic space invading trance-like musings welded to 'trip hop' beats interspersed with galactic jazz.

Music Submission, Jeremiah James

Artist or Band Name: 
Jeremiah James

Jeremiah James is a 26-year old, solo-acoustic-act currently based in Orange County, CA. James grew up in Colorado Springs where he picked up his first guitar at the age of 14. He dabbled with learning popular songs, but never saw the path to make it his own craft until he moved out to California in 2018. This was where he found a local mentor who revealed the path he’d need to take to become an artist. Now he’s found his feet as a singer/songwriter who’s discovered purpose and love in the music he makes as well as the joy it creates. His debut EP - Render is a dreamy, acoustic love-story that encompasses all the sensations we feel falling in and out of love. It’s an authentic record, told in a first-person narrative that allows the audience to step right into the artist’s shoes and experience the emotions he felt as the journey unfolded... all the way from the magnetic feeling of finding that mutually meaningful connection, to the painful heartache of having no other choice than to let go of it. Render is an EP that paints a vivid picture of the emotional roller-coaster ride that love can be.

Starveya-Moontide
Artist or Band Name: 
Starveya

Hello,

This is Aaron from the band Starveya. Our new single "Moontide" is set to release at the end of this month and I hope that someone at BBS might be interested in featuring it. I have included the official press release below. Thank you for your time.

Aaron Martinez-Starveya

STARVEYA is set to release “Moontide” on May 29th, 2020, their first new single since 2018’s “Olde Crow”. Available here: https://soundcloud.com/starveya

STARVEYA is a psychedelic, alternative rock band from the fringes of Los Angeles, California. Originating around the turn of the millennium, their music can be described as a fusion between the classic studio recordings of the late 1960’s, and that of the heavier grunge movement of the early 1990’s. The band exemplifies both of these elements in their 2013 EP Stellar Womb, coming together to showcase its own fresh, modern sound.

“Moontide” is inspired by Bob Dylan’s take on folk music, particularly the historic, "My Back Pages". STARVEYA guitarist and primary songwriter Aaron Martinez, adds that the subject matter of the song was originally inspired by the tragic death of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barret. Gradually, the focus shifted to include all people throughout the millennia that were considered crazy or foolish in their own time, but later looked back on as geniuses, innovators and prophets. “A madman today is just a hero tomorrow” and “the saviors, they never get saved” are a few lyrics from “Moontide” that illustrate the lives of such visionaries as Giordano Bruno, Galileo, Socrates and Jesus Christ, who had the misfortune of being ahead of their times, and whose importance in history is only fully realized posthumously.

STARVEYA is currently in the studio working on their upcoming, full-length album Abandon All Muses, which is slated for a 2021 release.

Music Submission, She Killed In Ecstasy

She Killed In Ecstasy
Artist or Band Name: 
She Killed In Ecstasy

She Killed In Ecstasy is rumored to be a clandestine experimental electronic project, solely comprised of screenwriter and composer/producer Clay Smith. Drawing inspiration from all that is old school punk, 70’s funk, 80’s synth pop, vintage psychedelia, obscure cult films and B-movies; he’s hopelessly condemned to a tireless existence of corrupting unsuspecting minds with a relentless onslaught of sweet, soothing, schizophrenic mood music.

Please excuse the carnage.

Music Submission, Pink Lemon Music

Pink Lemon Music CLONES album cover
Artist or Band Name: 
Pink Lemon Music
Pink Lemon Music is a YouTube collaboration established in 2009 between UK-based singer Justin L. Fraser and German-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ezy and his childhood friend and bassist/guitarist Joffrey.
Within a year 12 collaborative songs had been released on their former channel pinklemonmusic, building a solid fanbase with over 4.5k subscribers and 4 - 5 figure views per video. Plans were made to release a debut album but the project was forced into an indefinite hiatus when all three collaborators had to prioritize other aspects in their life. It wasn’t until 2017 when Ezy and Joffrey decided to give PLM another shot and sent new instrumentals Ezy had been working on to the UK, hoping to re-ignite the flame of Justin’s passion for music and to provide a framework for him to expose himself and his abilities and a singer and lyricist. His response was overwhelming and he immediately set himself to writing and recording. This worked as a catalyst for Ezy to enter new creative realms and further evolve the style of PLM to a more synth-oriented sound. The 2019 release of the debut album CLONES not only marks the 10th anniversary of PLM but also represents the first batch of songs that were written after the hiatus. Just like in back in 2009 they were being recorded in 2 bedrooms in 2 European countries. Out came 10 songs in the realms of Spacewave/Synthwave, a mix of nostalgia and modernity with strong references to the collaborator’s musical heroes from the 80’s.

The Lighthouse Commission - Angels & Aliens
Artist or Band Name: 
The Lighthouse Commission

The Lighthouse Commission is a Grand Rapids, Michigan band who play an eclectic mix of melodic and psychedelic songs written by guitarist/lead vocalist Jon Chuchvara, who has been playing with drummer Kevin Grant since 1993. Keyboardist/backing vocalist Jim Prange joined in 2004. 

The band are unconcerned with current trends in music, preferring instead to pursue their own sound- which reflects influences such as Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Minutemen, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Grateful Dead, Beck, and The Velvet Underground.

"Angels & Aliens" is the band's debut studio album. For the initial sessions, the full band was recorded live at Soundfield Studios in Wyoming, Michigan by Pete Bass. The drums recorded at these sessions are the drums heard on the album; also, a few guitar parts from these sessions were used on the album. All other instrumental parts and all of the vocals are overdubs that were subsequently recorded by Jon Chuchvara and Jim Prange with ProTools. The album was mixed by Jon Chuchvara and mastered by Rob Savage.

Cory Hotline is a cosmic collision of funk, pop, rock and disco; the kind of band you might expect to see at an especially raucous dance party in space. Comprised of some of the best veterans of Toronto's live music scene, Cory Hotline is basically the love child of Joe Cocker and Bobby Womack backed by a "build your perfect space-disco fantasy band" generator - a synthesis of retro nostalgia and future-facing funk with the pop sense of Maroon 5 and Michael Jackson.
