New Impressions: Rex Orange County, Lowen, FRENSHIP, VISTA, and more!

The first full length record from Rex Orange County is here. Pony follows a path of storytelling through lyrics in a clear and introspective way. Each track offers a view into Alex O’Connor’s mind. The instrumentation seems to take a seat on the backburner for this record, but it works. It’s a great fall album and an easy listen. Watch the music video for the opening track “10/10” below and listen to “Every Way” on our New Impressions playlist.

Lowen has released her debut EP, Only In My Dreams. Learn more about the promising singer/songwriter from Nashville from our interview here. Then make sure you listen to Only In My Dreams on repeat for the rest of the year. The EP includes five new songs and the two previously released singles.

Simple Creatures is the brainchild of Mark Hoppus (Blink-182) and Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low). They released the official music video for their single “One Little Lie“. The trivia based video plays on the classic pop-up video episodes that used to be featured on TV. The duo released their Everything Opposite EP earlier this month. Watch the music video below and catch them performing in California next month. Purchase tickets for their upcoming dates here.

FRENSHIP will be releasing their new EP Vacation Versions on November 1st via Counter Records. Until then, the band is teasing the record with a new single. The first single off of the record is the “Remind You (Vacation Version)”. The entire EP consists of reimagined versions of tracks off their debut full length record Vacation. What better way to accompany a new release than with a documentary? FRENSHIP will also be releasing FRENSHIP: The Road to Vacation on November 5th. Prepare for the doc and full EP by listening to “Remind You (Vacation Version)” on our New Impressions playlist.

You’ll have to wait until January 2020 to listen to the new record from Art Pop collective, Hello Forever, but in the meantime you can groove along to the new music video for “Anywhere is Everywhere”. The single offers a taste of their upcoming record Whatever It Is which will feature bits from all genres including jazz, doo-wop, and R&B influence.

Long Island’s best emerging alt-rock band has just released the first EP in their trilogy series. VISTA is back with The Ruins. The EP almost didn’t make it to the ears of listeners after a rocky moment in the band which almost led to their demise. The Ruins is a triumphant comeback that is ushering in the new era of the band with new sounds and their signature anthemic sound. Their new documentary “In Ruins” will also be released on November 12th.
