Weekend Singles

todayJune 12, 2020

Background

Maybe your weekend is looking a little more “All By Myself” and a little less “Love on the Weekend”. That’s okay. Plenty of alternative artists released fresh singles to keep you company this weekend.

Knox Hamilton – “18”

With two years and a few singles since Knox Hamilton’s last EP, it feels like just the right time to hear from them again.  “18” is a slow, tender track, ready for reminiscing. Knox Hamilton announced via Instagram that they would be donating the entire month’s streaming income to Color of Change.

Death Valley Girls – “Breakthrough”

After 2018’s Darkness Rains, Death Valley Girls are back with a couple singles via Suicide Squeeze. “Breakthrough” is a chorus of voices, gathering to change.  “Rock ‘N’ Roll” / “EGA” is a track that flips between dynamics of folky sing-a-along and punchy-punk.

Colony House – “When the Walls Come Crashing Down”

Jon Foreman and Jillian Edwards join forces with Colony House on their latest single since Leave What’s Lost Behind, released earlier this year.  “When the Walls…” is hopeful and encouraging, sonically sporting Imagine Dragons-tinted glasses.

Twin Peaks – “What’s the Matter”

Every-so-often, Twin Peaks likes to drop in, touch base, and give a gift of a nice little single. This week, that’s exactly the move.  Nothing’s the matter on this groovy, tender rock number featuring Ohmme and V.V. Lightbody.

Hatchie – “Sometimes Always”

Hatchie and The Pain of Being Pure At Heart have partnered up to cover The Jesus and Mary Chain’s original “Sometimes Always”.  The sales from this single on Bandcamp were given to the Movement for Black Lives and the Loveland Foundation, a non-profit that works to make mental health support accessible and available to Black womxn.

Dua Saleh – “windhymn”

“windhymn” comes from the newest EP from Dua Saleh.  The Sudanese-American artist fluidly breaks musical barriers and can’t be defined by any one genre or sound.  Although dealing with heavy topics, they also create space for humor and play on ROSETTA. For those weary of parental advisories, there is no explicit language on “windhymn”, but the rest of the tracks tout the language warning.

Check out these releases and stay tuned in to RSU Radio for the latest in alternative music!
