Amber Ryann Releases Underwater Music Video for New Single “For Real”

California chillwave/R&B artist Amber Ryann‘s new record Voice Memos will arrive on August 4th, but today you can hear the first single “For Real” featuring rapper Airospace. The wavy, atmospheric pop track swims in a subterranean vibe, beginning with a delicate guitar lick that is soon washed out by Ryann’s lyrics that tackle some heavy emotions.

The track is about opening up and feeling weighed down by the stigma that comes with talking about the issues you constantly suppress,” says Ryann. “Feeling no sense of comfort in the people that you don’t think can understand your struggle and only finding solace in the people that find themselves in the same type of distress. This video depicts a world between “peace of mind” in my own thoughts and preconceptions and instills a feeling of urgency to relieve those thoughts and gasp for air.

Although her music has a Lorde meets Halsey quality, Ryann first recognized her passion for music after seeing the My Chemical Romance video for “Helena” and watching Gerard Way’s emotionally intensive delivery. She consumed a healthy dose of rock and hardcore in the years to follow, but when her father, a rap/R&B producer, encouraged her to branch out, that’s when she really began to grow as a multi-instrumentalist. The new record is Ryann’s effort to find where she stands in a world with social and racial turmoil, and how her empathy plays a role.

Pre-order Voice Memos now on Bandcamp.

Precious Child Releases NSFW Video for "My Little Problem" & "Phantom" Off of 'TRAPPED' EP

george

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has released a highly politically charged, NSFW Official Music Video for the single “My Little Problem” off of his TRAPPED EP. Directed by Brazilian born and LA based artist Cade, “My Little Problem” was originally premiered on Paste Magazine.

“My Little Problem” is a song and music video about self discovery, synthetic nature, and sexuality. It is a collaboration between Precious Child and the director Cade.

“This video explores the current pop culture fascination with freeing ourselves from the decay and pain that is contingent with inhabiting a physical body. The question is, if technology allows us to transcend into conscious machines, unable to feel pain, will we feel anything at all but a pressing sense of existentialism? Vaporwave, goth, emo, and kitsch culture were an influence to this project as well as campy sci fi thrillers like David Cronenberg’s Videodrome.” – CADE

Precious also released “Phantom,” an experiential music video that illuminates the protagonist in “My Little Problem,” which was itself premiered on AntiHero Magazine:

TRAPPED is the 3rd studio album of Precious Child. Recorded in Los Angeles, TRAPPED is an EP featuring reinterpretations of tracks from Bloody Knees and ESCAPE as well as original tracks.

“Many of my songs have a common ancestor; when I write, the song I am writing often inspires another, and another, and another. Old ideas inspire new songs and new songs make songs out of old ideas. TRAPPED references these ouroboroses of creativity. I have been in the studio for many months working on an LP and this EP happened amidst the recording for the LP. See what I’m getting at? Hard to tell where the head and the tail begins. We have a desperate need for a reason to exist and art is my reason.” – Precious Child

Track List:
1. Phantom
2. My Little Problem (Violet Door)
3. Entity
4. No Such Thing as Time
5. The Past (Be Me Again)
6. The Past (Instrumental)

Download/Stream TRAPPED Online:
Spotify |iTunes | Google Play | Bandcamp | Amazon

My Chemical Romance Fires Drummer Michael Pedicone for Stealing!

Frank Ierno has posted on My Chem’s Website that the band has fired Michael Pedicone for stealing from them! They have replaced him with Jarrod Alexander for the time being.  Here is what Frank had to say:

Hello all,

Some shit happened last night and before the blogosphere gets all crazy with false statements and ridiculous opinions we want the true story to come from us… But please listen close because this is the only time we are ever going to talk about this. The relationship between My Chemical Romance and Michael Pedicone is over. He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington. We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation. The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives. The people who play in this band are a family, and family should not take advantage of each other like he did. We are currently moving forward, and hope to have a new drummer in place for our show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show must go on.

For his part, Pedicon has said the following on his Twitter Page (shredicone) :

What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you. It was an error in judgement based on a whole other situation that’s way deeper but this does not define me.

The band has picked up current Dead Country drummer Jarrod Alexander for the rest of the tour and possibly beyond. His first show was last night in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jarrod has previously been in Death By Stereo and Suicide File.
