Promise to Myself releases EP, ‘I Might Be Crazy’

Listen Here Exactly two years after their debut EP, Phoenix, Arizona local pop-punk band, Promise to Myself release their second album, “I Might Be Crazy”. When listening to the songs on this album, it draws a clear distinction between their first EP and this more mature follow-up. Karl Nagy (vocals and bass), Zack Bruge (backup vocals and guitar), Brad Stockton (lead guitarist), and Tony Galvan (drums) share a new side of themselves in this latest release. With more heart-heavy tones than the first, “I Might Be Crazy” takes a deeper stab at love and the feelings that go along with it. Most of all, the band’s lyrics sound more lovelorned than starry-eyed. “Now You’re Calling Me Psychotic (at least you’re calling me)” in particular reveals this tone, as the band portrays a much more adult feel in this relatively slower song. The opening of “I’ll Be Fine” allows lead guitarist Brad Stockton to show off some impressive riffs; while other songs like “Circles” harken back to the classic “One for the Runaways” album feelings that first drew us to this band. Overall the album is an exciting and suitable follow-up to their first EP. It is clear that these boys of Promise to Myself have so much talent, and their songs, lyrics and music are sure to grow even further than they already have. It will be exciting to see what more they accomplish after so much in just one year alone.  Since their first album, the band has been busy. From the Record Store Crawl with Warner Music, to NAMM in Los Angeles, back to countless local shows– including an...

Turn Zero releases newest single, ‘Petty’

Listen here Valentine’s Day, a time to celebrate love in all of its forms—even the darker side that takes you straight to your feels. That’s what you get when you listen to Phoenix, Arizona-based, alternative rock band Turn Zero’s latest single, ‘Petty’. We all feel for a relationship where something didn’t quite work out, and you wish you could walk in their shoes and try to understand how the other person lives while knowing what they left behind. This emotion-driven song crescendos with a beautiful duet between lead vocalist Emily Grieve and Love Like Fiction’s vocalist Nick Barker. ‘Petty’ is a ballad / bop about the slow demise of a relationship between two unfaithful lovers who become dramatically different to each other. The song is broken up by an amazing guitar solo by John Curtis-Sanchez which tugs at the feels even further. Accentuated by Branden Mosley, this guitar solo comes at the perfect time in the song’s structure. Meanwhile, bassist Ash Hendrickson weaves dreamy, rhythmic bass lines with the consistent, powerful drumming from Ben Palmer. Overall, the song communicates a “love-stalgic” expression of what it’s like to be with someone, have them leave, and then wonder what could have gone differently. Fresh off the bands’ first release with 80/20 Records in November, Turn Zero has kept it fresh, and kept it real. After performing at the Ultimate Ear booth at NAMM in January, and an upcoming  this local Phoenix band is on its way to becoming a household name. Continuing to use their emotions as a driver, this newcomer surges forward with passion and fearlessness; and we can’t wait to hear...
