You saw the Epilogues‘ video for “Hunting Season” on the Sovereign Sound first. You remember how amazing it was, how the song made you feel, and how the cinematography moved, inspired, and awed you. Well now you have the chance to be a part of their next project– the band is at it again and gearing up to create a brand new masterpiece. The video for new single “The Fallout” will be directed by the same brilliant mind behind “Hunting Season,” Dylan Novak of Montauk Media, so it is guaranteed to be sensational. This time around, though, the band is doing something a little different and asking for fans, friends, and general admirers to help out in making the video. So if you love The Epilogues, here is your chance to prove it.
Oftentimes in the music world, thing can move slowly for bands. Other times, the pace of the industry moves so quickly it’s hard to keep up. Either way, when you’re good, you’re good, and eventually someone takes notice. So whether it takes you a decade to get a record deal, or you’re Rocky Loves Emily and you drop your label debut EP less than two years after forming, hard work pays off. The pop rocking, punk infused, country lace band from Detroit, Michigan released their debut EP on Tooth and Nail Records just last week. The insanely catchy American Dream is available exclusively on iTunes and in Hot Topic stores nationwide and we here at Sovereign Sound highly recommend that you snag yourself a copy ASAP.
In the meantime, check out this behind-the-scenes making of the music video for their first single “Clueless”. The finished version should be up online any day now, but you can satisfy your Rocky Loves Emily craving a bit by watching this on repeat until then.
In this day and age every artist seems to be taking on multiple careers- there’s actors starting bands, musicians starring in films, and athelets trying a bit of everything. It’s not often, however, that you see a boxer morph into a singer…at least not successfully. But the buzz surrounding London’s former Amateur Middleweight Boxing Champion NOAH, and his funky music, is massive. Read More about this Ass Kickin Musician!
If you haven’t heard of the band Fun., you’d better research them quickly. You might be surprised to find out that the outfit is fronted by Nate Ruess, formerly of pop rock darlings The Format. You shouldn’t be surprised, however, to discover that the music is catchy, clever, and all around, um, fun. The band’s single “Walking The Dog” is a delightful blend of pop and pleasure, but the accompanying video is dynamite. Filled with with jazzy neon colors, fancy videography mashups, and creative split-screen shots, the video exemplifies the band’s ability to have a blast while making good music. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
You may remember back in August there was a Sovereign Sound post about how two indie bands from Colorado managed to completely devour the snobby LA music scene with killer performances at Cinespace. Well one of those bands, elctro alt rock powerhouses The Epilogues, has just released their first music video for their single “Hunting Season”- and you won’t believe your squinty music-loving eyes. The video, directed by Colorado resident Dylan Novak, bears a look of professionalism well beyond that of a first-time, low-budget, musical project. The young Novak’s undeniable talent radiates throughout the three and a half minute mini-film, as does the band’s made-for-fame theatrics. Each member looks perfectly natural in front of the lens, especially frontman Chris Heckman with his passionate gestures and sultry facial expressions. The outdoor setting for the video perfectly compliments the serenly beautiful and spooky song. Check out this masterpiece and dare to tell me you disagree.
British alternative rock outfit The Coral just released the video for their new single “More Than A Lover”. Set in all black and white, the video channels an old-fashioned photog feel and incorporates intriguing and beautiful scenery. The song is serene and phantasmagoric and will surely be played abundantly on the band’s upcoming tour. The Coral will be playing shows all over Europe and the UK and you can bet your bottom dollar that Sovereign Sound will be there to preview, review, and see how awesome the experience is.
During a tour stop in Toledo, Ohio, electro rock band Nico Vega decided to dress up drummer Rich Oho’s neice, nephew, and a friend as “Mini Nico Vega”. The result?

Check it out below and prepare to be awwwwwed.
