Coffee is cool and waffles are great, but we like to start our mornings with new music.
It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…
Who: Belgian punk rock band For I Am is days away from the release of their second full length album Bloomers, which is sure to make fans out of us all.
What: Exceptional vocals and beats that pack a punch—allow us to introduce “Die Hard”.
Why: Whether you’re a pizza and pop punk kinda person or a mosh-lovin’ punk rocker, “Die Hard” is one play away from becoming your favorite song… just don’t blame us when all that rebel energy has you breaking out your black eyeliner and leather jacket.
“‘Die Hard’ tackles the current-day issue of people being stressed out on a daily basis, not wanting to admit they cannot take any more to the outside world. We very quickly tend to say ‘I’m okay’ when asked how we are. But often that’s a lie. If you’re not okay, try to be honest and tell people about it. That’s the only way you’ll ever, in fact, be okay again. But we realise it’s not that simple, ‘cause old habits die hard…” – Hanne Terweduwe, vocalist for For I Am
Who: Fronted by Hang Tight’s Pete Zengerle, Jet Jaguar are pulling a little bit of inspiration from everywhere. From Guns N’ Roses to blink 182, the New Jersey band adds up the pieces for a sound that rocks harder than ever.
What: Their first single “Anvil” is an absolute bop from the moment you hit play.
Why: Somewhere between pop punk and modern rock, “Anvil” has so much energy it’s sure to wake you up way more than your alarm clock ever could.
“Our first song ‘Anvil’ should make you want to buy a guitar… and then smash it directly after on the pavement because you feel the Jet Jaguar power coursing through your veins. Immediately after that you should drive around your block blasting this song out your windows so that your neighbor Karen knows exactly what the F is up. If ‘Anvil’ doesn’t make you want to do any of that, you simply didn’t listen to it loud enough the first time.” – Jet Jaguar
