Tuesday in Japan have released a brand new single complete with a eerie lyric video. The song touches on feelings of love & denial.
Here is a list of artists to watch in 2017.
DahL is an aggressive experimental rock band fusing elements of electronic music to create a fresh sound. The energy and restlessness in the music matches up with how lots of us in the world are feeling with basically living on the brink of a nuclear war.
2. Surf Curse
Surf Curse are a lo-fi indie surf rock band that have been making quite a bit of noise in the underground scene for a few years now. recently they put out a brand new record & have been performing live all over the united states. If you claim to like indie surf rock & Surf Curse come to your city.. dont be a tosser… get up off your ass and go see them!
3. Beach Goons
Much like Surf Curse, Beach Goons also have been making lots of noise in the underground scene for the past few years. Beach Goons have a raw energy that has been lacking in modern punk rock bands for quite sometime. Most of the time you get a band that sounds too “pop” or it sounds too “thrashy” but these guys meet right in the middle a deliver fun songs that are great to either drink beer & skateboard to or sit on the couch and make-out with your girlfriend.
4. Troy Ounce
Troy Ounce is the artist behind a few underground projects.. He is the frontman of ‘Raincity Ghouls’, plays guitar in ‘Tuesday in Japan’ & also DJ’s under the alias ‘Beach Brat’. All of Troy’s projects are unique in their way but it is his solo project that is what to really watch out for in 2017. His debut album “Worst Fears” is a gripping story of love loss, loneliness & drug addiction that will hit home for anyone that has gone through pain of that sort.
Listener has been around for years but recently they just recorded an album that should be released sometime soon & judging by their live videos they have gotten more heavy with the use of distorted guitars and bass so their new record will probably have a different sound but if you know anything about listener.. then you know.. its probably going to be amazing.
Tuesday in japan just released a surprise lo-fi surf rock flavored single on Rain Dragon Records that is guaranteed to get you stoked for summer.
The single is titled “Splashing in The Waves” & it comes with a extended tropical house remix version by Beach Brat.
Both versions of the song make you feel like your living in one of those hipster vans parked by a sandy beach as your watching the sunset with your bff.
I Don’t need to tell you who Surf Curse are cause you probably have already heard of them… What I will tell you is that they are BACK! & currently on tour promoting their new album “Nothing Yet”.
Tuesday in Japan (Vancouver indie/electronic musicians) have revealed a brand new sound with a song from their upcoming demo & its nothing like anything they have done before.
or is it?
if you were one of their soundcloud followers in the past 8 months you would’ve seen a few nods to pop punk, industrial & alternative rock with some of their vaporwavey/chop and screw like edits of marilyn manson , sum 41 & placebo.
it seems T.I.J simply grew bored of making edits and decided to pick up their guitars, turn on their amps and let loose!
Troy Ounce (Canadian singer-songwriter & CEO of Rain Dragon Records) announced yesterday in a tweet that he will be making his debut album ‘Worst Fears’ come to life in a live theatrical performance sometime this year.

From now on when you purchase any music from Rain Dragon Records (A small indie label out of British Columbia , Canada) you can feel good knowing that at least $1 is going to helping people with disabilities.
CEO Troy Ounce met with the board of the Disability Foundation yesterday afternoon and finalized a partnership / collaboration that will also likely involve releasing some of the music from artists of the VANCOUVER ADAPTED MUSIC SOCIETY as well as doing some live events in the summer months working with the talented musicians of V.A.M.S & providing any technical support or help with set-ups.
