‘San Junipero’ and ‘Margarita‘ hitmaker Carousel Casualties is another dandy band bringing amazing tunes. Known for their bolstering upbeat sound, they create unique music that’s rarely encountered in the local scene. Their mixin’ and matchin’ of pop-rock and a bit of jazz overtones surely gets us every single time.
Their latest single, ‘Brooklyn‘ just dropped a few days ago. It’s one a few songs where the band went mellow. Perfect for hopeless romantics. But despite the positive yet heartbreaking effect it has, it will have you feeling optimistic about the days to come.
This four-piece alternative pop-punk band will surely capture your hearts. Where’s Ramona? is known for their heartfelt songs that put you in trance.

They released an album earlier this year called ‘The Reckless Romantic‘. And boy, oh boy, us romantics would surely find ourselves indulging every trickling bittersweet word they have. Especially ‘Together Soon’.
Bringing the best tunes from the south, Southern Lights shows off their strong alternative rock roots. Heavily influenced by fan favorites like Mayonnaise, Hale, Kamikazee, Mayday Parade, and Foo Fighters, they deliver cutting-edge alt-rock.
They’re currently working on their first full-length album, ‘Crossroads’, as of now. But they’ve released a few of their songs that will surely energize you after a long day of hard work.
And last but definitely not least, the baroque pop band Halina showcases a newfound glory through a unique sound. Coning their sound as baroque pop, it’s a concoction of modern tunes wrapped in classic overtones. It’s nothing but a treat for people looking for relaxing music to chill with.
