Fresh new EP from Brooklyn by way of Philly artist Rena. Her debut 6 track EP "Rude Chick" just dropped a little while back. This a loud and wailing punk rock record with a good dose of classic rock ballad flavor binding the whole thing together. The lead single "Symptom Of Youth" which premiered over at Nylon and who proclaimed was "a solid call-and-repeat anthem for the quintessential punk" is the main stamp that puts this EP into a very new and raw space in contrast to Rena's past works which was more in the electro pop vein.
Rena has worked with us here at The Submarine for a while now and we are super psyched to have been able to assist with her creative process and in putting out this hot new record! Co-produced, mixed and mastered here by myself and Will Broussard of Tiger Tooth.
Super psyched for the homie Kevin Hussein who just put out his debut 10 track EP titled "Cybersex" this week. Premiering over at FADER this new chill wave future bass hybrid beast is brought to you by the man himself plus super dope production from the likes of Hollywooood and Machinedrum.
Hussein explained the story behind Cybersex, "The inspiration behind the project is the Internet—AOL Chatrooms, Myspace, Black Planet, Twitter, Instagram, Google and Craiglist if you want to be sketchy. Cybersex is a search for love, success, happiness, spirituality, sex and all of my desires that are met through the internet. It's virtually impossible not to date someone without digitally stalking them or checking them out first. This may because we expose ourselves online which therefore alters getting to know someone. Sometimes it can speed up the relationship or enhance your interests.He continued, "I was raised in group homes most of my teenage years so I couldn't trust anyone there but I could trust people on the computer. I normally don't ask people questions or advice. I just type into my Google search for everything."
Select tracks recorded, mixed and mastered here at The Submarine. Enjoy!!
Today we have a new EP from upcoming band SKUX titled "The Two Sides Of She". The project just dropped recently and was premiered over at Noisey. Spearheaded by the lovely, high energy Ayisha Jaffer this new band was born out of the ashes of her past outfit called, I Eat Paint.
For the most part it's straight up punk on the more rockier side of things with that riot grrrl influence definitely binding the whole outfit together. Two tracks only on show at this point. On Her Way is a more chill beachy, jangly indie surf type track. 10 Things is straight up and down angsty RG punk rock.
The songs were a written collaboration between myself and Ayisha. Super fun, chill human being to work with. And then finally produced, mixed and mastered here at The Submarine also. Look forward to see whats up next for SKUX!!!
