UTG PREMIERE: Undesirable People – “Cosmic Man”

Our love affair with Undesirable People is well recorded, but I don’t think we have ever believed in the band as much as we do at this very moment. Undesirable People have long proven themselves to be a strong force in the world of authentic alternative rock, and their latest offering is their best yet.

You may have seen a few new Undesirable People tracks floating around the web in recent weeks, and if so know there is good reason for that. The band is currently preparing to self-release their first full-length album, titled Eternal Vision of a Blind Future

Few states are as synonymous with forward-thinking alternative music as Massachusetts, and today we have a premiere from one of the Bay State’s finest young acts.

Northernmost is a five-piece rock band with just enough indie edge to help them stand out amidst the incredibly crowded alternative rock landscape. The group is set to release their latest EP, titled Pinedale, on September 18, 2015. You may or may not have heard of the group before today, but before you rest your head on your pillow tonight I must insist you give them a few minutes of your time.

Today, …

UTG PREMIERE: All Walls – “New Vibration” (Music Video)

Many of our younger readers will be returning to school this week, which pretty much means that summer is officially coming to an end. That sucks, and there is no way getting around that fact, but as long as we have catchy music to enjoy the feeling of joy that summer brings can last well into the winter months.

Enter All Walls. Hailing from Los Angeles, this fast-rising indie-pop group is currently creating some of the catchiest music available on the planet. They are partnering with us today to share the world premiere of their video for “New Vibration,” …


UTG PREMIERE: Vegas Lights – “Drag Me Down” (One Direction Cover)

The battle for the attention of young music fans is more competitive today than at any other point in music history. Artists of all genres at every level of success have to constantly push themselves to think outside the box when it comes to marketing, which is often the deciding factor when it comes to whether or not an artist or band has any shot at long-term success. For Vegas Lights, a young post-hardcore group from Detroit, the answer to how they will make themselves stand out was simple: Cover One Direction.

Today, UTG is thrilled to present …


UTG Track-By-Track: Luna Aura Discusses ‘Supernova’

Phoenix is not a city that is typically viewed as a hub for emerging talent, but we recently learned to see Arizona’s urban heart in a new light after hearing the cosmic, dream-pop stylings of Luna Aura. Her music is as much influenced by the songs on the radio as it is by the hits of the urban underground, and the combination of those two elements has created a sound that is altogether new and intoxicating.

Luna Aura released her latest EP, Supernova, through digital retailers on August 7. We were a bit slow to discover her talent, so …


UTG PREMIERE: Thundercloud Kid – “Bad News for Blue Eyes”

It’s never too late in the day for a great music premiere, right?

We have been outspoken about our love for the upstate New York music scene for as long as I can remember at this point. It seems like every band that comes out of Buffalo or the surrounding area not only has something to say, but a unique way to say it as well, and that is again the case with newcomers Thundercloud Kid. Their sound is one part pop punk, two parts indie, and just a bit old school rock and roll. Sound good? Just wait …

UTG PREMIERE: The Casual – “Egg Nog”

Don’t worry, this post has nothing to do with Christmas.

You may or may not have heard of The Casual before now, but if our intuition is correct it won’t be too long before they are considered household names for anyone interested in alternative music. The band, who hail from Pennsylvania, have partnered with UTG to share a song titled “Egg Nog” off their forthcoming debut EP, Lust (due out August 8). You can stream the track below.

When asked about the story behind the track, member Zach Anderson commented:

“One day I was kind of just sick of keeping


UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Stallions – “Still Chasing”

Everyone seems to be talking about the numerous new releases hitting stores today, and for good reason. There is certainly no shortage of great records out right now, but if you’re looking for something that points to where the future of music is headed we can save you a few bucks by introducing you to the amazing talent of Stallions.

UTG PREMIERE: Treason This – “Moviegoers Dilemma”

If there is one genre of alternative music with fiercer competition right now than pop punk I have yet to discover it. Still, as countless groups come and go with songs not good enough to hold our attention, a few young groups are breaking through the noise with catchy tracks too good to deny.

Milwaukee quartet Treason This hail from a place almost no one considers a music hub, at least for the pop punk scene. Regardless, this promising young act have the songwriting chops and music talent needed to be something great, and today we’re thrilled to present the …


UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Subtle Words – “Whatsoever”

There must be something in the water in Buffalo, New York because no other city in recent memory has produced as many uniquely thrilling bands in the last five years as this often overlooked city. I don’t know the last time we went more than two days without posting about a band from this region, and today we’re thrilled to introduce you to yet another promising young band that will soon become (inter)national sweethearts.

Subtle Words are probably not a group you have heard of before, but soon they will be on every music fan’s radar. Blending elements of punk …
