“Stay Young” by Maudlin Strangers

unnamedMulti-instrumentalist Jake Hays started Maudlin Strangers after recording a few tracks in his Agoura Hills bedroom. The indie rock project’s debut EP, Overdose, is due this summer and has the uncanny ability to deliver brooding undertones alongside sexy swaggers such as on his latest single “Stay Young” :

“Stay young ’til you die…”

Maudlin Strangers begins his August residency at Bootleg HiFi on August 4th.

“Nova” Music Video by Lovelife

photo 3Lovelife returns with another leaked track, “Nova,” off their forthcoming debut full-length. Opening with a synth orchestration, the single fires off with a staggering electro punch via thick digi-beats and a very fierce chorus:

“Oh my God, I think I just did it again, I’m falling in love with you.”

And here’s its accompanying music video directed by Eric Nichols who might be channeling June Gloom meets Harmony Korine:

Lovelife will next perform on September 18th at The Roxy Theatre along with Olivver.

“Sweeter Conversations” Music Video by PASTEL (Premiere)

Self Portrait BPASTEL is the moniker of self-described “elusive chanteuse” Gabriel Brenner. Based out of his bedroom in Buena Park, the multi-medium artist started creating music last year that has since evolved into an arresting neo-R&B project focused on brooding beats and a smooth soulful vox. His forthcoming debut EP will be released via Manimal Vinyl and has already leaked a couple of tracks including “Sweeter Conversations”:

And here’s his self-made music video for the single which utilizes some picture-in-picture while maintaining his preferable penchant of not revealing his face:

“BLACKOUT” Music Video by FRANKIE (Premiere)

imageFRANKIE is a young rad chick originally from Oakland but now kicks it around Larchmont Village after her college friend/collaborating producer, Petros, convinced her to move down south. Now reunited, they’re recording FRANKIE‘s debut EP which she claims was mostly conceived from bedroom daydreams –which might expound her blatant candy-bop edge. And like HOLYCHILD and Sophie & The Bom Boms before her, FRANKIE‘s first leaked single, “BLACKOUT,” encourages a shameless pursuit of joie de vivre via digi-beats, quirky effects, and a fabulous poptastic vibe:

And here’s the song’s accompanying music video which was shot around Eagle Rock and Ventura by the always reliable director Jancarlo Beck:

“Beggin For Thread” by Banks

5208_0512014111145The enigma chanteuse known as BANKS leaks another brooding track, “Beggin For Thread,” off her forthcoming debut full-length Goddess –due September 9th via Harvest Records. Unlike the Tarzana native’s other seductively sedated singles, this song carries enough electro zeal to incite a rave:

“Stooped down and out, you got me beggin for thread, to sew this hole up that you ripped in my head.”
