The Beaches – “Fascination”

The Beaches are back with a new track, and dare I say this one captures the essence of their live set? Catch The Beaches at the Scotiabank Arena on November 22nd, where they’ll be opening for The Glorious Sons!

Young The Giant – “Superposition”

Young The Giant’s just released their fourth record, Mirror Master! last month. If you missed out on their party of a show at Rebel last week with Lights, hopefully you’ll throw your own party for one with this track which, by the way, sounds pretty golden in your nice headphones.


Tokyo Police Club – “Simple Dude”

It’s hard to think that Tokyo Police Club almost called it a day after their album Forcefield, but we all know after a little breather they banded back together stronger than ever to make their latest release TPC. The band has described this one as a roller coaster, and you’re about to hear why.

Foster The People – “Worst Nites”

Alright, time to dance. Foster The People are really bringing the tropical vibes and synths to this one for you. It might even bring you back to being out a little too late in the summer.


Imagine Dragons – “Machine”

Imagine Dragons have released so many huge tracks in advance of their album release, it’s hard to believe their latest record Origins just came out on November 9th. It’s considered a sister album to their mega hit album Evolve. They say they grew sonically on this one. Let’s see!
