Metric – Cascades
Toronto electro-rockers Metric are back with a brand new album this fall called Pagans In Vegas. The band’s sixth full-length will be out on September 18th and they’ve recently announced a slew of tour dates that will take them all across Canada with their new tunes. Cascades is our second sneak peek at the album, following the release of The Shade. The track finds the band moving in a more electronic direction with booming synths front and centre. In a press release, the band tells fans: “As always, we encourage you to sing along with the robots.”

Eminem – Phenomenal
Here’s a fun fact: Eminem was originally chosen to be the star of the upcoming film Southpaw. But while Eminem stepped down in order to work on his album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (Jake Gyllenhaal stepped in as the lead), the rapper remained close to the project, working on the film’s soundtrack instead. Today, he released a song from that soundtrack called Phenomenal.

Natalie La Rose feat. Fetty Wap – Around The World
Singer Natalie La Rose is proving to be a queen of collaborations. Earlier this year, she found success on the single Somebody, featuring hip hop artist Jeremih, and now she’s tapping up-and-comer Fetty Wap on her new song, Around The World. The hand clap-heavy dance track is a great follow up to Somebody and a serious contender for song of the summer.

NERVO feat. Kreayshawn, Dev, Alisa – Hey Ricky
In a genre dominated by men, Aussie DJ duo NERVO are proving that women deserve a spot at the top. On their latest single Hey Ricky, the duo are teaming up with fellow talented musicians Kraeshawn, Dev and Alisa for an energetic anthem railing against men (one specific specimen named Ricky) while having a damn good time.

LOLAWOLF – Every F*cking Day
Some may know of Zoe Kravitz as rock star Lenny Kravitz’s daughter, others may just recognize her as one of the Immortan Joe’s wives in the recent blockbuster Mad Max. Either way, you should definitely get to know her band, LOLAWOLF. Kravitz’s band draws from a grab bag of influences, from hip hop to rock, all cobbled together for an ultra-cool sound that makes them one of the most exciting bands to look out for. Lenny must be a proud papa!

Weaves – Tick
Take everything you love about pop music and throw it into a blender — the results will sound a little something like Toronto’s Weaves. The band’s latest single Tick is a whirlwind of jagged riffs and oddball sounds, all reined in by lead singer Jasmyn Burke’s truly alluring voice. It’s a bunch of sounds that may seem strange all put together at first, but eventually after multiple listens, magically transforms into a really catchy tune that you won’t be able to stop listening to.
