Reliable Alibi is an emerging and imaginative folk/rock singer-songwriter who is getting ready to release their first single, “You Are My Heart,” on Friday, April 9th. It is an endearing track about the bond of friendship.



“You Are My Heart” has a distinctive sound that immediately captures your attention. Expertly blending 60s folk rock with electronic elements, this piece takes you on a sonic journey through different genres that unexpectedly work very well together.


Written and recorded with ukuleles and keyboard, the instrumentals are stimulating and innovative with the perfect amount of familiarity. Setting a new standard for creative individuality, Reliable Alibi’s music also pays respect to those who have inspired them.


“I was raised on classic rock. Neil Young and Cat Stevens were inspiring me before I could even write. I grew up harmonizing with The Monkees every morning on the way to school. Then when I was older and discovered the dance music scene, it all came together. I knew I was meant to bring these two worlds that I loved together.”



Reliable Alibi and guest vocalist Kiara Alibi complement each other in such a sweet and genuine way. The lyrics narrate a charming message about those special friendships that last through all of life’s changes. Most people have that one person where you can go a while without talking, but come together again as if you’ve spent no time apart.


“You Are My Heart” is just the beginning of Reliable Alibi’s journey. You can expect to hear their upcoming debut album, The UkeRock Experience, later this year.

Dark-pop band RIVALS’ new album Sad Looks Pretty On Me is hauntingly imaginative and filled with rousing intricacy.



The Los Angeles quartet consisting of vocalist Kalie Wolfe, bassist Sebastian Clarke, guitarist Micket Woodle, and drummer Josh Alve have revamped their rock sound into a brilliant combination of dreamy pop-rock, post-hardcore, and alt vibes that feel inspired yet original all at once.


RIVALS cannot be put into a box because of how diverse and transformative they are. They are continuously evolving, while expertly maintaining the special qualities their supporters have grown to love about them. With their music, RIVALS hopes to garner the attention of both “radio listeners and bedroom moshers.”



Sad Looks Pretty On Me is their newest full-length album. The lyrics are grippingly poetic and complex, and the edgy instrumentals are joined by intense, stunning vocals. There is an abundance of beautiful emotion and meaningful messages. You’ll find that this collection of songs is wonderfully depth-filled.


“RIVALS always rise to the challenge of confronting demons head on —

while fashioning their moods into something irresistible.”


A perfect example of this is their track, “Strawberries,” which is about Kalie Wolfe’s past addictions with drugs and alcohol, and how she healed from these past issues and found happiness. While I usually try to explore each track individually in my reviews, Sad Looks Pretty On Me is a very personal listening experience. It has touched me in many ways, and I know that you’ll connect with it as well.

Cas Cleo, an indie-pop artist from Nashville, releases her debut EP, twenty-four!



twenty-four is a charismatic collection of tracks that cover topics such as family, self-doubt, relationships and even death. These were the things that were on Cas’s mind this past year at age 24. The EP as a whole is wonderfully cohesive and easy to resonate with.


A songwriter from a young age, Cas Cleo has developed an immense talent from storytelling in her music. She explains, “I believe lyrics are the most important part of a song, which is why my songs are more light and airy than anything else, so the production doesn’t overpower the lyrics.”



“Pinned Up Butterfly'' is emotionally captivating with its illustrative expression. While she’s reflecting on a personal and painful loss, a beautiful sweetness remains throughout. Nostalgia continues in “Old Days,” which is about being grateful for the moments you didn’t appreciate until you looked back on them. The detailed lyrics are enjoyable to follow along to, and they inspire the listener to take a break from the rush of life to remember where they’ve been and who was there through it all.


Charmingly short and simple, “Friends'' is an honest and vulnerable track in the style of an open letter. Expressing the feeling of wanting more with someone, having regrets about how things ended up, and the heartbreak that comes with unrequited love. “Long Sleeves” also speaks to a similar disappointment. “[It] was written when I felt that I needed to leave a toxic relationship. Finished it a month later when this person left me first for someone else,” reflects Cas. Haunted by memories but knowing that moving on is for the best, this beautiful and introspective song is filled with relatable lyrics about finding strength amongst the hurt. It’s my favorite on twenty-four.
