So many new releases, so little time! Join us on our favorite day of the week and get down to new music and maybe pick up a little something for dad!

New Singles to Jam to

Cold Roses, “Staying Alive Ain’t Easy”

Philly boys Cold Roses have a new song and you need to hear it. The song infuses all parts of their multilayered sound–piano-driven rock and folk–in this forlorn ballad off of their upcoming album Escape To Anywhere (out July 21st). Check it out live on June 24 at MilkBoy or below!

The Horrors, “Machine”

Let things take a twisted turn in The Horror’s latest single. Harking the best of Portishead mixed with Muse, get ready for your alt-rock blast song. Check it out below!

George Ezra, “Don’t Matter Now”

Join babyface crooner with a velvet baritone George Ezra in his latest video.  A stark departure from several of the moody, religious undertones on his debut album, the song is catchy, feel-good, and the perfect summer road trip track. Get ready to sing your troubles away below!

The Killers, “The Man”

Step aside, Mr. Brightside, THE MAN is in town! The Killers have FINALLY released their first song in five years and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s more soulful and some dark-toned beats, we’re liking this. Was it worth the wait? Be the judge and check it out below!

The Weeknd, “Secrets”

Can we get better than this? The Canadian crooner who is about to hit the stages at Firefly Music Festival has quasi-covered the Romantics iconic track “Talking In Your Sleep,” the latest single off of his album Starboy. It’s almost like fan-fiction, but in music form. Love it or hate it, check it below!
