Band Name: Vallkyrie

Name of song: Runaway Child

Genre : Rock, Pop, Alternative

After exploding onto the scene in 2015 with their powerful anthems, South Auckland-based 3-piece Vallkyrie are back with their new single, ‘Runaway Child’, a nostalgic 80’s-infused track with Flashdance-esque kick drums and powerful emotive retro-rock vocals.

Band Name: Emily Gambone

Name of song: Fool

Genre : Singer-songwriter

Fool is one of my favorite tracks off of ‘Treading Water’ and it is also one of my more personal ones. Writing about ex lovers is never easy, but this song has helped me heal and hopefully it can do the same for someone else.


Band : Dark Entries

New Single: Science

Genre : Rock / Alternative Rock

Dark Entries is a hard rock band that mixes heavy metal and goth influences in their own brand of music. Dark Entries was originally founded in 2012 by brothers Mickey and Juice Hernandez in Whittier, Ca.

Band Name: Heavy AmericA

Song name: Heavy Eyes

Music Genre:: Rock
When my daughter was a baby, I would watch a smile come across her face as she fell off to sleep and wonder “what’s she dreaming about?” “Heavy Eyes” is my best interpretation of what may have been going through her head. Untainted innocence. https://open.spotify.com/track/7hopzujLoEUnchckUfCVyw?si=1E8OoYB8T6OD4UazHfyXTQ
