“The Glow” By Sylvan Esso

The Who: Sylvan Esso The What: Do you remember the glow? It’s safe to say that Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso do and whether you felt it because of the music that you loved or the circle of friends that you belonged to, it can be an elusive thing to keep hold of. The video for “The Glow” […]

“I Can’t Feel A Thing” By Holy Wars

The Who: Holy Wars, (Los Angeles, CA) The What: For better or for worse, pain and grief can be an artist’s most extraordinary creative spark. With the lose of both of her parents in 2015, Kat Leon walked into and through her darkly profound pain and, in 2017, came out the other side as Holy Wars. “I Can’t Feel A Thing” […]

“Mean It” By Terence Ryan

The Who: Terence Ryan (South Shore, MA) The What: His 2015 Will Word & Hand EP was a 5-song glimpse into the life, drive and mind of Terence Ryan’s blue collar world. Where real life and creative life collide, the folkish fusion of indie rock and soul in the Massachusetts native’s music is pure reflection. Ryan’s debut full length album, Don’t Panic, is due out in […]

The Who: JMSN (Los Angeles, CA via Detroit, MI) The What: Music videos tend to tell a tale, regardless of whether that tale is direct and in your face or as abstract a mindfuck as calculus. Cue Christian Berishaj aka JMSN (just like the scorchingly smooth whisky) flexing his imagery imagination all over his video for “Slide” –  just one of the […]

“Little One” By Highly Suspect

The Who: Highly Suspect (Cape Cod, MA/Brooklyn, NY) The What: If there is one thing that has always been reflected in the music that Johnny Stevens, Rich Meyer and Ryan Meyer rock out, it is conscious thought; just one of the reasons why they are one of High Voltage’s favorite On The Rise artists. And that not so simple aspect is what […]

“Swim” (Ft. Zefire) By HER

The Who: Her (France) The What: Victor Solf and Simon Carpentier truly do specialize in a precise kind of sexy time: it’s a minimalist’s take on R&B and soul that hovers beneath the delicately crushing weight of love, sex and passion so you may want to keep a cigarette (or vape) handy. Under the moniker Her, the duo occupy the sacred space of […]
