The Watch List follows ReverbNation CONNECT artists as they travel from their hometown to cities like NYC and Nashville to record new music and hone their craft, documenting the journey along the way. This month’s featured Watch List Artist is Golden Age, whose single “Tinted Windows” premiered on The FADER.
We’re so excited to announce the latest addition to The Watch List: Golden Age! The NYC-based baroque-pop band premiered their soaring single “Tinted Windows” on The FADER along with an accompanying music video. Front woman Sydney Sahr tells The FADER, “We’re all obsessed with the unknown in one way or another. ‘Tinted Windows’ is about giving in to the pull of an enigma, which is a bittersweet sensation.” Head over to The FADER to listen to “Tinted Windows” and check out their Chicago tour dates.
Australian power-pop act, Allie & Ivy, unleashed her latest single "Get Hi," a synth-heavy and bright little number mixed with dark undertones on Project U. She recently emailed with us to tell us about the single, what the Australian music scene is like, and more.
Hi there, thanks again for making a mini mix for us! Tell us a little bit about yourself—who is Allie & Ivy?
Thanks for having me! Allie & Ivy is the name I go by in the music world. My real name is Aleisha Conlay – Allie for short – and Ivy is my alter ego. She came about a few years ago when a producer asked me to sing in a more menacing tone because my voice has quite a bit of a sweet sound to it, so I created Ivy to help me get into character and she’s stuck with me ever since.
