ELECTRIC HIGH is a high-voltage rock team from Bergen, Norway.
A 5-piece that goes straight for the throat, fronted by two in-your-face
lead singers, while the band shoots out pure electric power.

Proof of it all is their new headbutt named SEVEN WONDERS.
A song about taking it more than a few steps too far and biting
far more than you can chew.

TUTV: On Seven Wonders this Norwegian hit team go gaga again with
rabid riffage, a pounding rhythm section, and maniacal vocals by the
two vivid vocalists boasting ridiculous promises based on historical myths
of Zeus, Helios, King Nebukadnesar of Babylon, and the seven wonders of the
ancient world. Around the 3-minute mark a freaked-out guitar solo is the
harbinger for a demented finale that attacks your stereo with puissance.

This is what raging rock ‘n’ roll is all about. All motors and
all cylinders on, turning the decibels to the max and going berserk.

Tune in.

British techno experts THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS have a brand
new single out. It’s titled NO REASON. They announced it this way.

“We’re very excited to share our new song ‘No Reason’. If you’ve seen us play
live over the last year, you may have already heard an early version of it in our
sets. The song contains a vocal sample from the amazing song ‘Courts or Wars’
by the band Second Layer. We would like to thank Graham Bailey, Stephen Budd
and the family of Adrian Borland for permission and blessing to use the sample.
It means a lot.””

March along with the band.

Waking Up With FLORENCE And THE MACHINE Storming Through NO DOUBT Oldie For YELLOWJACKETS Series

Daily noise that works harder and faster than a gallon of caffeine

16 March 2023

Season 2 of the Emmy-nominated series Yellowjackets – about a high school
girl soccer team that become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in
the Canadian wilderness – starts on 24th March.

The series’ trailer comes with Florence + The Machine covering Just A Girl,
the 1995 blockbuster hit (more than 215 million streams on Spotify) of No Doubt,
led by pin-up star Gwen Stefani.

Florence: “I’m such a huge fan of Yellowjackets and this era of music, and this song especially had a huge impact on me growing up, so I was thrilled to be asked to interpret it in a ‘deeply unsettling’ way for the show. We tried to really add some horror elements to this iconic song to fit the tone of the show. And as someone who’s first musical love was pop punk and Gwen Stefani it was a dream job.”

Florence and IDLES’ Mark Bowen did the production.





Daily noise that works faster and harder

15 March 2023

Nashville superstar MILEY CYRUS released her
last week.

NME: “A love letter to Los Angeles and, indeed, herself, Cyrus’ eighth record
may appear subdued by her standards, but it remains remarkably intriguing.
A potent reclamation of power.”
Score: 4/5.

To be honest, except for some of her hits and some headlines, I’m not familiar
with her work. But those hits and a video here and there learned that Cyrus
has a formidable, sexy hoarse voice, that she can rock out like the best, and
that she takes no BS not from anybody.

So she deserves a big bouquet of FLOWERS
(almost 700 million streams on Spotify already).

This is what a 24-Karat pop song is about.

Waking Up With The Astonishing German Doom-Trap Snake MIMI BARKS

Daily noise that works faster and harder than caffeine

14 March 2023

German doom-trap artist MIMI BARKS made eyebrows raise and ears quiver with her tempestuous and bone-chilling 10-track mixtape named DEADGIRL. An ominous exploit
of furious electro-horror-punk. “It’s literally a journey from self-hating to self-healing.” said Barks.

One of the unquestionable standout tracks is 10.steps.back.
A vicious primal scream rant for parties at graveyards.

“God damn keep the distance
I said 10.steps.back better listen
You ain’t worth your existence
You ain’t a threat, you´re a victim”

Barks launched an astonishing video clip for it, recently.

A creepy and claustrophobic affair where you she consecutive flashes of Barks
handling a snake while all sorts of freakish insects show up everywhere. If your
a snake-phobic like me you’re blood pressure and adrenalin production will
raise to unprecedented heights.

Roll the tape.
Go 10.steps.back.

12 March 2023

The Velvet Underground released their self-titled debut LP (yep, the one
with the banana on the cover) 56 years ago today. on 12 March 1967.


What better way is there to wake up on a Sunday morning with, eh, opening track
SUNDAY MORNING, with more than 108 million Spotify streams, far out the most
popular track of the album.

Lou Reed and John Cale co-wrote it with Nico‘s voice in mind. In the end, it was Reed
who sang it, with backing vocals by Nico. This pure classic gem was actually about paranoia.

“Watch out, the world’s behind you, there’s always someone watching you”
