Alt Rising Acts PHIN have just released a new cover video of Rihanna's 2012 hit Stay. The Nashville boys interpret the track with a more dynamic fervent rock energy than the pop original. Their standard exploratory texture and raw emotion is perfectly conveyed in the passionate live cover done at the Gnome Recording Studios. As they note "a good song has the ability to transcend different genres and musical personalities," and transcends it so epically does as an unexpected yet incredible release for the rapidly rising group. We cannot wait to hear more from this 5-piece indie-rock group, so hopefully we'll hear news of their debut full-length soon! For now, sit back and enjoy the captivating quality of IndieBeat favorites PHIN.
We're glad to be back from hiatus, and we're amped to celebrate our Second Anniversary today! Two years ago, we started as a small blog hoping to bring some light to artists we believed in. Two years later here we are doing just that and much more, with interviews and collaborations we would have never dreamed of. We're extremely lucky and thankful to be part of such an incredible indie community of supportive artists and fans. This site would be nothing without all of you!
This has been the most successful year for us yet, and we cannot wait to introduce you to more amazing artists and alternative culture. To kick off our celebration, we're giving you the gift of a New Music Friday Obsession Mixtape! Consider it some stellar birthday cake to jump start your weekend.
