Jade The Moon – The Tide

Jade The Moon are an independent alt – pop band that consists of Dani, Benjamin and Jeremy who started making music from the age of six. They released a brand new single, “The Tide” as the second feature track from their upcoming new album, 11:11. The group says that the collection of tracks on the upcoming release are best described as “musical photographs”. A moment in time turned dance party, true story turned love song, a daydream turned eerie alt-pop lullaby. Real world inspiration. This is the follow up to the group’s self-produced 2015 debut release Habits and Hindrance sees the continued theme of “cycles” in human nature.

“We self produced our first record and our current record ’11:11′ was produced by Colin Munroe …except ‘HOTELS’ by Adam King. We are always very involved in every set of the creative process but it really helps to have some in the room to make sense of all the ideas. We are always looking to collab with new writers/producers. @mikkyekko if your listening ;)”

“Fall Tour Dates in the works.  We will also be premiering our short film created and directed by Black/Cartel in Toronto last fall”.

C. Gold – Nobody

C. Gold

C. Gold is the new smashing artist from Sweden that, with his debut single ‘’Nobody feat. Fancy Dave’’, shows that he is here to stay! It’s not very often an artist makes an entrance as strong as C. Golds.

Some artists take years to figure out their sound and style, but listening to ‘’Nobody’’ and seeing the artwork makes C. Gold’s debut crystal clear and easy to love! Worth to know is that he does it all completely independent.

Nobody Feat. Fancy Dave is a groovy electronic pop song with new thinking beats and a lyric that tells the struggle of being a young creator in the most obvious way. When you’re young and working hard to reach your dreams, it can feel like a long way till you’ll see any gold. But listening to C.Gold will guaranteed be the most valuable thing you’ve done in a long time!

Tamtam – Blue

Tamtam

Singer songwriter Tamtam grew up in Saudi Arabia from her birth until she was 13 years old. Throughout her teenage years, she was relocated to California for school because her parents believed seeing the world through a different lens was important. Having discovered her love of singing at the age of 11, Tamtam took the opportunity to move and channeled all her learning experience into her biggest venture, music.

She got her start in music on YouTube with her first ever single “Little Girl.” At the advice of friends and family, she blurred out the video so you couldn’t see her face for fear of backlash from people who knew her in Saudi. This inspired her second single “Gender Game.” The EP Gender Game was released in October 2014, and it wasn’t long before the title single gained recognition. Contacted by Geena Davis to support at three of her non-profit events, along with An Upworthy article with over 80k shares from March 2015, it was clear Tamtam had made her first big mark on her path in the music industry.

From there, Tamtam was able to truly launch herself into the world of music. She released her single “We’ve Got Wings” in late 2015 to help promote a Saudi breast cancer awareness organization founded by Princess Reema bint Bandar, and has been promoting it ever since.

Tamtam uses her message of love and acceptance to promote gender equality along with other humanitarian and egalitarian efforts all over the world, especially in her home country of Saudi Arabia where movement towards gender equality is beginning to take off. She is dedicated to using her music to promote these positive messages to young women and men around the world while sharing her own experiences through her art.

“My new single, “Blue” is about heartbreak and feeling haunted at the end of a dissolved romance, while the other person seems so cool. I drew on nature’s everchanging blues (water, the sky) for inspiration – their vastness, unpredictability, and power to set a melancholy tone”.

“Thank you Substream for the kind premiere, and thank you for listening”.

Naah – Touch

Naah

With roots in indie-pop, the 21 year old independent songwriter and

playful melodies, she puts her own stamp on music and
delivers a single that can be measured with the world stars.
It’s not electro. It’s not R&B. It’s not pop.
– It’s Naah!

“Sippin’ is the second single from Stockholm based songwriter NAAH.  It’s an effervescent electronic alt-pop number with rhythmic synth-work, crisp percussion and outstanding melody writing. It is clear that she is talented beyond her years, at only 21 she is creating well crafted synth-pop with clear appeal – her debut single ‘Worth It’ picked up some serious love across the blogosphere and shot its way to ~500,000 streams on Spotify. This new one is sure to find its way into your Spotify playlists and should see the young talent emerge as a serious contender this year”. ‘Purple Melon

All The Rest – First Class Lover

All The Rest

Senoia, Georgia is a creepy old place. One hour south of Atlanta in the Deep South, Senoia is the town where AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is filmed. It is also the home town of ALL THE REST who are as much misfits in their town as their Zombie counterparts.

Baylee Waller (19) is the son of a contemporary Christian artist and his dad bought him an electric guitar aged 10. Baylee immersed himself in music and when he was at a Tennessee music festival his dad was performing at, he met Jud Harris (19) who had been playing drums since the age of 8. They started to hang out together and dream of being rock stars. When Baylee’s cousin Caleb Smith (18) heard Jud and Baylee jamming together he decided he wanted to play guitar too. He was only 12 but when he started to practice with the other two the band suddenly landed its lead singer.

In the summer of 2013 the band knew they needed to add a bass player to their line up and so posted a Facebook status. Local bass player Tre Housman (20) had been playing since the age of 7, he luckily heard about the vacant position and impressed the guys with his skills.

With the line up now complete the guys have played constantly in the Georgia music scene and developed their skills as songwriters and musicians.

All home schooled, All The Rest are anything but regular and with their individual fashion style and weird personalities were often sneered at by locals. They ignored and persevered and when their music reached the ears of LA Music Publishers Kundun Music they were immediately snapped up for synchronisation in Film, TV and commercials.

Now recording in the studio with legendary alt Producer Matt Squire, whose credits include Panic! at the Disco, Youngblood Hawke, Good Charlotte, Boys Like Girls and All Time Low.

Often thought to be pretentious, All The Rest mysteriously thrives on the outer critics, making honest music for a disoriented and systematic generation. Inspired by the Post-Punk era, this alternative rock band carries a rebellious voice, unexpected from their sleepy Deep South. It’s undeniable that this band represents “All The Rest” of society.

Their first official release is Black Plague – released March 7th 2017. It is a raw and honest song about a true life toxic former relationship for one of the band that lead to nothing but pain and heartache.

All Things Go loves the track calling it “a hard-hitting revival of the raw energy borne from personal struggle and perseverance. As it rides on waves of self-determination, the sheer force of will carries you through the void.”

Emerging Indie Bands claims that, “The mix of dirty blues guitar and preppy pop vocal give All The Rest a space of their own in a crowded-market…The fact that I am suggesting you spend time in their company indicates that I think in Black Plague it works successfully…”

All The Rest has been featured on Alfitude‘s New Music Playlist.

“Black Plague” captures the ebbs and flows of life throughout its production. Moments of complete chaos are followed by moments of sweet serenity. This punchy rock tune is gritty and heartfelt – the epitome of freedom, as the lyrics suggest, letting go of the ties that ultimately bring you down.

All The Rest
“a hard-hitting revival of the raw energy borne from personal struggle and perseverance. As it rides on waves of self-determination, the sheer force of will carries you through the void.”
