Whilst preparing to tour with PVRIS in 2022, genre-defying, Grammy-nominated Illinoisan Kristine Flaherty, also known as K.Flay, has unveiled her new five-track EP 'Outside Voices'. Contrasting her previous EP, which was released this April, 'Inside Voices' saw collaborations with pop-punk superstar Travis Barker and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. Although, 'Outside Voices' continues to comment on intricacies of life through K.Flay’s signature sound of alt-pop vocals, indie influences and lo-fi vibes, this time it’s with a 90s grunge edge.
Nu-deathcore quintet ten56. have made a crushing entrance with their debut EP, 'downer part. 1'. Fronted by Aaron Matts (ex-Betraying the Martyrs) and featuring members of Novelists FR, Kadinja, and Uneven Structure, the musicians that form ten56. have a lot of experience under their belts, and it shows on their pummelling first release. We caught up with Aaron Matts to find out more, including the band's formation, influences and ambitions.
