Mega Bog announces new album Dolphine, shares lead single “Diary of a Rose”

PoB-049-cover-web

Erin Birgy and her band Mega Bog share the lead single from their absurdly good forthcoming 5th full-length Dolphine, out June 28 on Paradise of Bachelors.

21-year-old Memphis native Harlan Hutton and her band share the first single from their self-titled debut full-length, coming this summer.

Screen Shot 2019-04-11 at 8.24.46 AM

UK duo Susie Green + Simon Bayliss aka Splash Addict share the self-directed video for their new single, out today on Zoee's label/"empowered pop platform" Insecure.
