Badflite – Down Together
Badflite is ready to release the fourth track in a streak of releases, while also announcing the coming of his debut album. ‘Down Together’ is the oldest idea from the album and marks the fourth single of it. Reinventing his sound as well as image as a whole, the album will surely present his own personality.
Badflite: ‘’I started making ‘Down Together’ by playing around on the Mooog synthesizer in the studio. With a rather simple melody and vocal chops from the choir I managed to get an interesting vibe combining pop and electronica.’’

DZ Deathrays- Paranoid
Indispensable post-punk trio DZ Deathrays today release their anthemic new single, ‘Paranoid’.
‘Paranoid’ is a driving track, punctured by syncopated rhythms, buzzing feedback and a fiery chorus. DZ’s sound sings through the piece, with heavy double and triple-octave riff instrumentals reverberating on the lyrics: “Oi, oi, ya paranoid, hanging at the back waiting to get destroyed.” The track features notable nods to classic Aussie rock; percussive built-up introductions, howling vocals and driving repetition, demonstrating DZ Deathrays‘ lasting ability to deliver carnage-inducing riffage.

The new single is an ode to late 00’s indie rock that highlights Groupthink’s infectious melodies and hooks with an appreciation for distortion.

Groupie is a cheeky stoner pop song about being in love with someone who is a rockstar.

MALARKEY & Beave – Good People
Malarkey & Beave have been friends from the UK for years, but for the first time they are coming together to release ‘Good People’.

No Mana- Space feat. illesha
Electro house prodigy No Mana marks a trilogy of releases on Monstercat today with his next nostalgic single, “Space (feat. ill-esha).” Inspired by one of his favourite childhood songs, “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis, the new record sees the artistic virtuoso juxtapose his previous moodier tones on releases like “Out of the Dark” and “Yesterday,” with vintage-analogue synths backed by his signature 8-bit beats. The pop-driven melody from ill-esha tops the ‘90s feel and positions the track as a groovy anthem fit for the dancefloor. While “Space” is the final release of 2022 for No Mana, fans can still catch him live in December at his last two dates in Denver at The Temple and Harrisburg at Stage On Herr.
