News Bits & Pieces

COFFEE PROJECT SHARE NEW VIDEO CLIP
Coffee Project has premiered a music video for ‘Wasted Love‘.

The single is the title track of their new EP that was released on June 16th, digitally and on vinyl, by A-F Records.

Coffee Project is an acoustic duo from Gainesville, Florida. Formed in the Summer of 2006, it initially served as an outlet for Jake Crown (Savage Brewtality) and Buddy Schaub (Less Than Jake) to write and record some song ideas that didn’t quite work in their other bands. That itch to work together would go on to blossom into 10 years and 3 records worth of material that, while at the core being upbeat acoustic pop songs, are also incredibly personal and relatable.

Check out the new video below.

SIAMESE RELEASE NEW TRACK ‘SCATTERBRAIN’
After making waves with their debut single ‘Computer Patient‘, Adelaide’s Siamese, are primed to build on this strong introduction with second single, ‘Scatterbrain‘.
