AU8UST with the new song 'Hold Me Down'

'Hold Me Down' is the latest from AU8UST, and it's definitely a song that represents a transitional period in life.  For a song that's written about being alone it's definitely a confident one.  The artist exposes his own experience and his comfort in being alone, and in doing so creates a similar feeling for the listener.  The production, lyrics, and vocals are a perfect match, and when a song like this seems to come so naturally to the artist it's contagious.


VIDEO: Giraffage 'Maybes'

Too Real is the new album from Giraffage, and it's definitely worth your attention.  The new video for 'Maybes' with Japanese Breakfast employs a concept that director Jon Ryan had been developing for a while, and perfectly fit the lyrics to this song.  This is definitely a bold, original idea for a video and one that matches the unpredictable and inspiring sound of Giraffage nicely.  Get Too Real here!
