Music is meant to unite us. That concept feels especially relevant today, but for the brothers of Saint Nomad, it’s become one of the driving principles behind their lives as individuals, and a band.

While chaos and cold weather overcome the world around us, perhaps the best way to cope is to momentarily disconnect.

The independent pop artist, who’s real name is Steph Wells, garnered a lot of buzz during Spotify’s wild west days, circa 2015-2016, when independent artists were regularly playlisted based solely on the merit of their music – (what a concept!).

With three singles under his belt already in the rollercoaster ride that is 2020, he’s back with yet another new jam in “The Word”. It’s a smooth dance pop tune with a groove and guitar tone that are perfect for the late summer feels. At the ripe young age of 20, he’s got a bit
We’ve all had that feeling before – stuck in a rut, not knowing how to take the rollerskates off. Indie pop’s favorite bad girl Sizzy Rocket comes to terms with that on her new single “Rollerskating”. It’s a refreshing change of pace for the singer-songwriter, a mellower side she hasn’t shown much of since she emerged in the mid-2010s.
If you’ve got the summertime blues, Zanski is here to dispel them. Not only is his groovy new EP Upon Frigid Water is a rather danceable affair, it taps into some of the most human themes; purpose, life as a journey, and facing down your demons. Its appealing, but also gratifying.
“Love is nature and nature is love. Next time you visit, remember there is more to experience than The Vegas Strip.” Photographer Angie Menze and Model Montana Cencarik explore the natural beauty and old desert towns outside their world famous hometown.
The self-proclaimed “trash-laden Brat Pop” artist is no stranger to the strange; just weird enough to be cool, without sacrificing accessibility.

The Los Angeles based singer-songwriter has recently unveiled her debut album “Everywhere I Go,” an effort that’s been several years in the making.

C-Heads recently caught up with Chelsea to talk about “07 Britney”, creative process, and her undying love for the pop music of the aughts.
“Stop and smell the roses.” The age old cliche we all forget to listen to. Especially in America; fast paced, the world’s stage. Brooklyn based producer and songwriter Oliva Reid is slowing things down a bit. Not in terms of the music, it’s actually a rather exhilarating production, but in terms of mantra
