Listen to Allison Weiss’s New Song, “The Fall”

Rising pop-rock performer Allison Weiss has returned with yet another catchy single from her forthcoming, breakout summer EP, Remember When, set for a July 22nd release via No Sleep Records.

The dynamic new EP finds Weiss at the top of her songwriting game as she weaves pop-infused hooks with indie rock riffs on five uniquely memorable tracks, including “Remember When,” “Giving Up,” “The Fall,” “Call Your Girlfriend” (originally by Robyn) and “Take You Back.”

It’s been a busy year for Weiss! Her meteoric rise to pop-rock stardom began in early 2013 with the release of her critically heralded album Say What You Mean.  Since then she’s been touring relentlessly, including two European runs and multiple U.S. tours, and amassing a legion of fans along the way.  Now, a little more than a year later she’s returned with what many are saying is her best release yet, Remember When.

Crank up the volume and get ready to rock out. Listen to “The Fall,” below.

Oh, Be Clever Premiere “Lost You” Music Video

Oh, Be Clever Premiere “Lost You” Music Video

Electronic duo Oh, Be Clever have just premiered their new music video for the single “Lost You.”

This is the third song released by the duo in 2014, it’s now available on iTunes.

Oh, Be Clever blend elements of rock, soul, and electronic music with raw, emotional lyrics that tell stories of love, struggle and empowerment. The enormous voice of singer Brittney Shields combined with the refreshing state of the art sounds of multi instrumentalist Cory Scott Layton come together to create the catchy, upbeat sound that is Oh, Be Clever.

The Salt Lake City duo, however, haven’t always enjoyed perfect harmony. Prior to forming Oh, Be Clever, Brittney and Cory were members of separate bands that loathed each other to the point of physical violence. Late one night after a show, a fight broke out in the parking lot between the two bands. Having always admired each other, Shields and Layton fled the scene to create their own music, and Oh, Be Clever was born. 

Get ready to fall in love with the duo, check out the video for “Lost You.”
