Monterrey :: Make Me Feel (New Single/Video)

Miami electronic musician Monterrey is getting ready to release a new EP Elapse. Our first taste from the EP comes in the form of lead single "Make Me Feel". A loopy electronic pop tune that paints a minimalistic landscape soaked in colorful synths. As per Monterrey "The repetition in the vocals is key to the concept which is inspired by the crescendos of being in love. It is also the inner turmoil experienced by a computer attempting to assimilate to human emotion." Take your pick, or both, it can be both. The band will be performing Live Friday, June the 15th at Tigermilk, Miami's monthly Brit-Pop/Indie party held at Las Rosas. Can't wait to check out their set!

With no further ado check out Monterrey's new single/video for "Make You Feel".

BayRan :: Taps (Premiere)

We are happy to be premiering the new single "Taps" by Miami electronic artist BayRan. It's a great looping instrumental electronic track that we are digging!

We asked BayRan what this track is all about, and here is what he had to say ::

"Taps" is about the hypnotic redundancy that occurs at various points throughout our lives. By using short repetitions, I wanted to create a feeling that doesn’t necessarily evolve or change as expected. It was challenging to commit to certain elements, but I felt that there is a lack of self reflection and ambiguity in modern music. It might not be easily digested, but I really tried to instill a sense of anxiety and entranse the listener using traditional elements of songwriting in unconventional ways" 

With no further ado check out that excellent new track "Taps" which he is giving away as a free download for OTR readers! Yes! Best grab that quick before he changes his mind.

Jaialai :: Chariot

Miami band Jaialai who we wrote about their excellent debut single "Pink Motion" last year here sent us their new single "Chariot". It's a cool shoegazey tune and it features a sweet 360' video for it. They recorded the song earlier this year with Carlos Imperatori (Fabulosos Cadillacs producer) and it features Didi Gutman from Brazilian Girls on keyboards. Lead singer Oscar tells us "The song is about finding happiness after being disillusioned". You know, shit most people can relate too.

Rainsford :: Intentions ft Twin Shadow

Got sent this sweet indie pop tune by LA artist Rainsford called "Intentions" which features the amazing Twin Shadow sharing vocal duties with her in the choruses, and even a bit of a verse for himself as well. Great pop tune! She describes the song's inspiration as coming from being in a couple of relationships in the past were neither of them really knew what they wanted and were scared to truly speak their minds, leaving her wondering "what are your intentions?".
