New HELLSONGS single 'Calling Them Out' is out now!

Those who have a decent political compass could not have missed out on the political winds blowing the past years, all over the world in general and in Europe specifically. What once used to be is no more, and we who have grown up in a context characterized by a positive attitude in general to solidarity, immigration, equality and generosity still cant believe what is happening.
Each month passing by, new low levels are reached by people who call themselves both democrats and politicians. Obviously there are different perspectives on what to focus on when strengthening the pillars of a democratic society. Right now we are seeing a growing nationalism, the spread of racism and bizarre conspiracy theories.
At the same time there is a strong tendency of dismantling libraries, study associations, union rights, cultural schools, as well as continuous attacks on civil rights, the LGBT society, Muslims, Jews - you name it. Polarization is growing and its quite obvious to us who are feeding it.

Calling Them Out is HELLSONGS musical response to all that. Let’s at least be honest, no matter how nice suits you wear - fascism/racism always stinks.

You can stream the single now on all available streaming platforms.

US singer-songwriter Amy Rigby has a new single released today! Dylan In Dubuque is inspired by a notorious nineties Bob Dylan concert in Iowa, where a lack of security led to chaos and a nonstop stage invasion that Bob simply took in his stride…. If only we could all be so unfazeed when things start to get weird!… Aren‘t things weird??

Conny Frischauf: New single 'Schall und Schwer (Erst aus dem Ufo seh ich dich)' is out!

‘Schall und Schwer (Erst aus dem Ufo seh ich dich)’, first sound from Conny Frischauf's upcomping second album ‘Kenne keine Töne’.

The delicately dubby track draws us into a melancholy vortex. Frischauf's vocals sweep over the syncopated bass line, lyrically exploring the relationship between strength and vulnerability. ‘Schleift sich ein / Dunkt sich rein / Kommt zu mir / Will zu dir’ ('Grinding / Submerging / Coming to me / Longing towards you') It wanders along these vocals before it finally fades with synthesised snare drums circling around like seagulls. More infos for your ears coming soon!

'Jona' is the first single from the upcoming album 'Backwater Collage' (out 3 May). It's James Hoare's first solo album under the name of Penny Arcade

"Jona was first song recorded for the album. Written late at night in my garage studio post lockdown. It has a subterranean feel and centres around a fictional character. The whole song was written very quickly around a simple guitar riff. I tried to capture the twilight feel of the initial idea on the actual recording, keeping everything simple, stripped down and to the minimal of takes. The song became a touchstone for the album and helped shape the overall sound of the tracks that followed." – James Hoare
