Detroit-based neo-soul artist Sara Marie Barron has shared a new single and video from her upcoming LP today. "That Man" is a song about an unhealthy relationship that was coming to and end around the completion of Sad, But True and it was a late addition to the album. "I had a vision of having it feel really old school, really pretty but with some darker undertones. And I always wanted to have horns on it, so I brought a few of my friend into play on it and it all came to fruition," said Barron of the song. Check it out below and where it premiered at Billboard.
LA shoegazers, The Cabin Fever, just released a live-in-studio video of their new track, "The Brown Bunny" this morning over at PopMatters. The song is a hazy, distortion filled number that waivers along like a sinister lullaby. At the vocal helm is S. Moriarty, who leads the track with his whispery pipes. The folks over at PopMatters say this of the video: "creates a hair-raising adventure for listeners far and wide with chilling guitar lines, disquieting vocals and the overall sense that one is either being cast into a void or cast into space." Take a peek below or over at PopMatters.
