The Gabriels: Loose Canyon – track of the day

Today’s track of the day comes from a brand new retro band from the Midlands, The Gabriels. ‘Loose Canyon’ is out today, and singer Gudg tells us:

 “The song is about escapism, this year more than any we’ve all probably felt the need to escape. As a band we love the 1960s Laurel Canyon scene and would have loved to be have been part of it. It was a time where it felt like anything could happen both socially and musically and as a band it’s a big influence on us”.

EDDIE: Blame It on the Twilight – track of the day

Today’s track of the day comes from Warsaw trio Eddie: ‘Blame it on the Twilight’ is out now.

Vocalist and lyricist Zofia Alk tells the story of a traumatic high school love experience. She says:

“The song, although personal, isn’t just another heartbreak single. It’s more of a commentary on the widespread acceptance and at times even propagation of toxic role models among our society along with the presence of violence that is often mistaken for affection.”

Sabrina Lawrie: Dreamstate – track of the day

Today’s track of the day comes from Brisbane’s Sabrina Lawrie: ‘Dreamstate’ is a lush riff driven and totally danceable indierock stomper. Lawrie explains the meaning behind the song:

“It explores the polarity of masculine and feminine and pays homage to the deeper magic behind sexuality and acknowledges how this most natural of human impulses is a sacred union, attempting to shake the stigma that mainstream society places on sex.”

Feral: Loser – track of the day

Today’s track of the day comes from Feral, aka California’s pop punker Kelsey Ferrell. Loser is a bitingly witty song about hook-up culture:

“I wrote a song about a guy and so he later told all our mutual friends that I was ‘totally into him,’ which wasn’t exactly true. I felt like he felt a little too special, and so I came up with the phrase ‘you’re not the only loser that I fucked,’ in response to him,” says Ferrell. “That evolved into the song Loser, which is about the mistrials of sleeping around in my college years. It grew to be about many different people and experiences and stands as a critique to sex positive culture, which, in a heterosexual framework, often coaxes women into a false sense of security in their sexual pursuits, leading them to get hurt in both cruel and criminal ways because of a misleading and somewhat naive branch of feminism.”
