New Music – Jaymes Young, Neon Jungle, Unlocking the Truth
New arrivals on the OTR radar from Los Angles, London and New York
Superb fresh twists and turns from LA-based, Seattle-born artist whose tracks to date highlight a dude with serious pop (“Hold You Down”) and bass (“Dark Star”) smarts. His super-cool cover of Haddaway’s “What Is Love” has serious jam potential too.
Meet your new favourite girl band (and yes, they’re still making girls bands). Their CocknBullKid-produced single “Trouble” (snippet below) gets a release on RCA in August and it’s a wham-bam, day-glo blast of pop sass, energetic high jinks and sticky-as-chewing-gum hooks. Coming soon to a big arena – or supermarket shelf – near you.
One for the metalheads in the audience. Unlocking the Truth are three 12 year old New York kids who’ve gained a rep for their fierce, savage deathcore on the back of some busking stints in Times Square. Malcolm Brickhouse, Jarad Dawkins and Tyree Johnson can play wilder and faster than lads twice their age.
