Fort Bragg native Emily Jane White’s long awaited album, They Moved in Shadow All Together, is finally getting an official release this Friday, July 8. We’ve already previewed the album’s first single, “Frozen Garden,” and now White unveils the music video for the album’s second single, “Pallid Eyes.”

Featuring a hypnotic acoustic riff and White’s ethereal voice, the song builds on “Frozen Garden” with a mysterious narrative and haunting melodies. And the video, shot in washed-out greys by director and editor Dan Jenkins, moodily captures the song’s message of longing and languishing.

White is currently on tour supporting the forthcoming album, click here for updates on her upcoming shows.

Watch the Music Video for OVVN’s “Sores”

Posted by: on Jun 21, 2016 | Comments (0)

Sonoma County experimental band OVVN is an undeniable and unapologetic force of noise on their new LP, “I Love Myself And Want To Live,” out now on San Francisco-based label Don’t Look Down Records. The four-piece outfit, fronted by vocalist and songwriter Ethan Jayne, has been steadily gaining momentum with several self-released EPs over the last few years, and this debut full-length, full of droning metal riffs and feedback squals that travel unpredictable sonic paths, is an intense one-of-a-kind rock and roll experience.

Matching the aural edginess, this darkly-tinged music video for the album’s single, “Sores,” offers a gritty and mysterious vignette paired with ominous shots of the band playing live for an effect like that of an old Nirvana music video on quaaludes–in a good way.

OVVN (pronounced own) will be performing as part of the upcoming Last Record Store 33 & 1/3 Anniversary Party in Santa Rosa. For more details on that show, click here.

Royal Jelly Jive will be appearing at the sold-out BottleRock Napa Valley on May 29 and the free Railroad Square Music Festival on June 5. Check out the details here.
