Puppy Release Nostalgic Video For “Forever”

I know very little about Puppy. I know that they just released a rad new track titled “Forever,” and an accompanying video with it. A video in which they do not appear, but old footage from rock festivals and concerts are plenty, as their grunge-pop tune is played over it.

With luscious textures giving rise to distorted riffage, the track is an interesting blend of grunge, pop, emo, indie, and just plain awesome. The Billy Howard Prince-directed video only helps in making the band’s nostalgic, yet infectiously creative track come full circle.

Tonight Alive

Watch Tonight Alive’s Jenna McDougall Stop Security From Choking Fan Mid-Show

When Australia pop rock outfit Tonight Alive first burst onto the international alternative scene there were some who were quick to call their punk/edge into question. It may say 2015 on our calendars, but for whatever reason there are still trolls hiding in various corners of the planet who do not believe female-led bands can be as tough as bands filled with all male members. If that description applies to you, and I truly hope it does not, then all I have to say is that your world view is about to be changed.

Over the weekend, Tonight Alive were …

The Mean Green 7″ B-side, “Levitate Thigh,” has gotten a music video to promote the release, and the short clip is just simple enough to keep your attention without burning your eyes.
