When singer-songwriter Sterling Rhyne left her small-town Texas life for the bustling city of New York, the transition was one of hope and good vibes. This energy is reflected in the artist’s debut single, “Remedy”, which Rhyne claims came to her in a dream:
“‘Remedy’ is the first song I wrote when I moved to New York. Sometimes an amazing phenomenon happens where I will write a song in my dream,” Rhyne explained. “‘Remedy’ was one of those songs. I woke up around 8AM, and had the melody still in my head.”
Following up from their single “Brutocracy,” the 8-piece, jam band ensemble The Dayzare making quite the splash with their newest release titled “Waves.” With soft, ambient strings and instances of processed “robot” vocals, “Waves” introduces a forward thinking approach to their music. When asked about the inspiration behind “Waves,” The Dayz front man Dax Callner describe their song as “inspired by gravitational waves and is in the spirit of classic ‘space’ oriented songs like “Under the Milky Way” and “Space Oddity.: It’s the most keyboard-heavy song we’ve ever done.”
Catch The Dayz live Friday at The Bowery Electric.
“The media calls it an epidemic, but I call it a pandemic. I have lost many friends within the past year to addiction and substance abuse,” Arena explains. “This is also a song of self-empowerment. Putting faith in yourself to overcome the unimaginable. As the saying goes, ‘It won’t be easy, it’ll be worth it.'”

The Joy of Violent Movement raves about Resin’s newest release, Fidget, and the single, “Hoarse,:” Antonucci pairs swirling electronics, tweeter and woofer rocking beats, stuttering drum programming and a soaring hook with her sultry yet achingly vulnerable vocals — and while clearly nodding at Nine Inch Nails and Portishead, the single also manages to remind me of Version 2.0-era Garbage.
