UTG PREMIERE: Secret Grief – “Faking Orgasms”

Michigan indie/emo outfit Secret Grief have a handful of releases under their belt, each one providing a slightly different perspective on the group’s wide array of talents. Thus, our staff is particularly looking forward to hearing what is next for the band on their upcoming album, The Sea of Trees. While it is slated to hit the internet this week via Triple Deke Records, we fortunately have a brand new song from the record for you to check out.

Latest ‘House Of Cards’ Season 3 Teaser Is Full Of Tension

Trying to move attention away from last week’s short-lived content leak, Netflix has shared a new teaser for House Of Cards season 3.

Subtitled ‘White House Portrait,’ the latest teaser for House Of Cards season 3 finds president Frank Underwood posing with the first lady in the oval office. As they prepare for the photographer to snap his shot, a voice over from Frank talks about feeling a slight hesitation/resistance from his wife when he touches her shoulder. It seems one-sided at first, but then a voice over from his wife sends chills down your spine with the line “I …

Kelly Clarkson Shares Uplifting Video For “Heartbeat Song”

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Kelly Clarkson is looking to corner the lovesick pop anthem market with “Heartbeat Song.” The track, which we originally panned because of its striking similarity to Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle,” has become a fast-rising hit at radio and now has an incredible video to help it attract even more fans.

Released this morning, the official video for “Heartbeat Song” could almost double as an ad for getting over whoever did you wrong in the past. The clip follows several individuals and couples from all walks of life as they experience romance and …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Morals – “Question”

Under The Gun Review is pleased to bring you the premiere of Morals’ first official music video for their new track “Question.”

When it came to picking which track to create a video for, the choice was obvious for the band.

“We thought that the format of the song really lent itself to a music video concept,” says bassist Dan Roth. “We love videos that have a message or a story, that are more than just a band playing. We scrutinized every track and made sure that could we present each in the best way. We felt this is the …

Here Is The Official Trailer For ‘House Of Cards’ Season 3

Following several teasers in recent weeks, Netflix has released the official trailer for the third season of House Of Cards.

When we last left the smartest family in Washington, Francis Underwood was finally preparing to take his place in the oval office. Of course, this followed a series of dark and legitimately illegal events, not to mention the deaths of several main characters many believe would be cornerstones of the series for years to come. The first trailer for season 3 offers very little dialogue, but it delivers a thrilling compilation of dramatic moments that will leave you hitting …
