The Canadian synth-rock sextet Fast Romantics will release the LP American Love on the 28th of April.
From the forthcoming album, Everybody’s Trying To Steal Your Heart, the first of the dozen tracks, is a composition which encapsulates their mix of societal protest commentary and desire for inclusiveness as they are uncompromising in their sadness of the realities of life, though deliver an uplifting anthem imploring cohesive unity by those not inside the cliques of self-serving bureaucratic structures which fail to accommodate or meet the needs of the governed.
It was back in 2014 that the US indie-rock band CLIFFHANGER last featured.

On the 24th CLIFFHANGER released Barbed Wire Bat (available on bandcamp) and immediately on hitting play I recalled precisely what I enjoy about their music.
Just under three and a quarter minutes of sparkling effervescent sunlight pours in to the room, catching hold of the listeners on its way past the ears and launching them in to frenetic dance-step with a joyful grin on their face.
I hope it isn’t yet another lengthy before I return back to CLIFFHANGER who are able to deliver music of delighted high-tempo abandon without ever loosing timing and direction.
