EXSage unveils fearless new EP, plays Bootleg Theater on 8/27

Kate Clover, front-runner and official ‘bad-ass’ of Ex Sage, will be releasing her newest EP, Total Devotion, on September 22. The EP's first single, “Under Your Spell”, is a balanced blend of the sweet soulful melodies of Stevie Nicks and the dirty garage rock of The Strokes. Clover’s talent is unparalleled to other rockers in her genre, as she fearlessly taught herself to play every instrument you hear (minus the drums). Her eccentric lifestyle and abnormal influences has landed her on a spark that is just waiting to ignite.

ExSage will be playing at The Bootleg Theater on August 27, followed by an EP release at Moroccan Lounge on September 24. - Kayla Hay


On the rise: Anne Dereaux crafts emotional alt-soul in debut EP

With her debut EP, Book of Lolita, released last month, Nashville born, LA based alt-soul singer Anne Dereaux delivers a soothing record filled with wisdom and vitality. Inspired by an alter ego conceived by the artist when she was a child, the EP marks an emotive and personal journey, featuring vocals that range between confidence, pain, and delicate textures, layered over atmospheric instrumentals. The artist released a video (streaming below) for the song "MO(U)RNING", which complements the emotional track through an ambitious story that transitions from a somber, darkened setting to a luminous ending, painting a journey through pain and heartbreak. She's playing NYC's hot hub Baby's All Right on August 22nd - it's a good sign. - Tafari Lemma

Inner Wave releases groovy single "Eclipse" + play the Observatory 8.25

There is a vintage sound that comes across in LA indie quintet Inner Wave’s latest single “Eclipse” (streaming below). Maybe it’s the way Pablo Sotelo's voice shifts into falsetto during the repeated line “Try, it’s right there for your eyes,” or the way the synth beats start to drive the song into groovy, psychedelic territory. Either way, listening to the song is like losing track of time—it’s mellow but not boring, catchy but not conventional. Hear Inner Wave play tracks like this live a the Constellation Room at the Observatory on August 25th. - Lilly Milman
