Ever regret ignoring the red flags, even though they were there the entire time?
f1oater. explores that regret — and the associated feeling of frustration — on “Don’t Know Why,” a fire-powered pop punk single dedicated to those times when we’ve known better from the start (and then did it anyway).
“‘Don’t Know Why’ is the epitome of hindsight is 20/20, (and) being caught in the moment is a wonderful thing until you ignore warning signs flashing in your face,” said f1oater. frontwoman Laura Short. “It’s the expression of frustration of not listening to your inner intuition.”
If you’re looking for more, you won’t have to wait too long. “Don’t Know Why” is the first single from the band’s forthcoming album — and serves as the tip of a rather compelling iceberg.
“This single marks the beginning of the story we’re about to take you on,” Short said. “A tale of reaching towards the light and all that you encounter along the dark road of reawakening.”
We have so much to get to with this week’s edition of UMC20, and that includes providing clues about what’s coming down the pike in the near future.
We have upcoming (and previous) Quinn Spinn guests featured here, as well as artists set for forthcoming NashLive! shows this fall. We have submissions from multiple different continents and, of course, we touch as many genres as possible across these 20 tracks.
Sound exciting to you? Good, because it does to us. Let’s go!
This week’s UMC20 spotlights the artists joining us this Friday night in East Nashville. They lead us off, and there’s plenty more fun where that came from. There’s a splash of pop, a whole lot of rock, and even a little Americana in there for your tastes.
Spring is a time for renewal, and we’ve refreshed our UMC20 playlist with 20 more vibrant tracks of all shapes and sizes.
It feels cliche, at this point. We always try to bring you variety here, and this week is certainly one of the stronger examples of that in 3 1/2 years of weekly UMC20 playlists. It’s also hard to believe we’ve almost been in Nashville for 3 1/2 years, but that’s a story for another day.
The story today? The sonic magnificence that awaits you below!
First of all, we’ve been getting a ton of submissions on the form lately! Thank you all for your diligence. We’re looking forward to digging in and getting a lot of this new music featured, one way or another, in the coming weeks.
In fact, we have a few choice cuts for you today, recently submitted by independent artists near and far. And, with a headline like the one on this article, you’re surely curious to hear what’s in store, right?
TIOGA’s new single, “Bad Things,” came out of a Talking Heads cover session. That influence is apparent on the track, and acknowledged by the band, who likened the single to if “David Byrne decided to hop in a spaceship and make a record that tackles simultaneously wanting to be alone, but not being able to deal with the solitude of one’s thoughts.”
