Rise Rock n’ Shine: Transviolet + Rival Town

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, make sure it has a good soundtrack.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: Transviolet has never been known for doing things the conventional way. From catfished beginnings to mysterious cassette tapes, the group always brings a creative approach to their career and their bright indie pop beats.

What: A fresh tune from the Los Angeles outfit called “Drugs In California”.

Why: “Drugs In California” may be a portal to another realm, one where you can float on the wind and dance with the light. The world seems a little further away as the synth waves crash over you, bringing with them Sarah McTaggart’s captivating vocals and a chorus that would feel at home on a Lights track. Lean into the indie-pop universe Transviolet has created and the song will be a welcome escape from your daily grind.

“Hey friends! We’re so excited to share with you our new song, ‘Drugs in California’, the title track for our new album! This song is about a toxic relationship, specifically a toxic relationship with fame and adoration. This is our second release so far as an independent band and we couldn’t be more excited to get these new songs out into the world! We hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening!” – Transviolet

Who: Rival Town got their start on the shores of Lake Superior. Since then, they’ve moved to St. Catharines, Ontario to continue perfecting their pop punk sound. With only six years experience and a sound that already rivals heavy hitters, their trajectory only goes up from here.

What: The band’s latest single “Coming Up Short”.

Why: Sometimes it feels good to be frustrated. The next time you’re ready to unleash all you’ve bottled up, make sure “Coming Up Short” is there to guide you through. The pop punk tune keeps your energy up as you sing along, venting your deepest disappointments. It’s a catharsis—and it represents everything we love about the genre.
