Sound Bites: Nowhere To Run

ThePolaris Over the past few weeks it’s been a great part of the discovery process to encounter music from across the ocean in the UK. Yeah, I’m a little partial to that area but good music is good music.

Or in this case, it’s beyond just good.

UK based The Polaris is an indie rock quartet with a debut album set to be released soon. Their lead single is Nowhere to Run, a pulsing and fluid rock ballad. A sound similar to Better Than Ezra and Fastball, The Polaris combines well written melodies with excellent rock instrumentation.

Take a sample sound bite of Nowhere to Run here:

Sound Bites: Fame Whore

______fameWhore1_1600x1600 Kenny Fame is back with his sophomore release titled Fame Whore. The Brooklyn, NY based musician takes a blues-jazz sound and puts a solid beat with each track. The title track Fame Whore builds like a modern jazz-pop tune, with bright horns, a groovy bass line and a fun beat. Whether the song is a reference to an actual popularity-seeking individual from pop culture (Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, etc?) or not remains to be seen.

The feel of the tune is similar to some of Prince’s work. Currently the single is unavailable on Kenny Fame’s Reverbnation page. Fame Whore the album is set to be released in a few months. Check on his site for details on the release and future music details.
