Mary Lambert releases official video for “Secrets”
A while back I posted the new single “Secrets” from Everett native Mary Lambert. Now Mary has released the official video for the first track off of her upcoming full length Heart On My Sleeve which you can preorder on iTunes now. The video is pretty much the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen.
New Perfume Genius single
Seattle’s Perfume Genius recently released the video for their new single “Queen” and it is a weird one. Weird in that waking up and trying piece together the really awesome, confusing and psychedelic dream you just had kind of way. You can see Perfume Genius at the Neptune Theater in Seattle on October 25.
Susy Sun releases music video
On Monday Seattle’s Susy Sun released the music video for her new single “Grey Skies.”
Fauna Shade on a roll
Everett band Fauna Shade has had a pretty great year taking 2nd place at EMP Sound Off!, playing the Fisherman’s Village Music Festival, Timber! Outdoor Music Fest and plenty of great club shows. Well things got really cool this week when Seattle Weekly released their Best of Seattle list and added a new category “Best of Seattle: Band From Everett” and awarded the honor to Fauna Shade.
I Will Keep Your Ghost frontman staying busy
Last, I recently had the chance to catch up with I Will Keep Your Ghost front man Bryan Bradly about what he has been up to. There was lots to talk about as he has been hard at work on fresh material for an upcoming full length and there might be some new stuff surfacing late this year or early next year. This is exciting news for the Everett band who’s first EP It’s Natural got a lot of great reviews earlier this year.
