The Band Camino’s, “Daphne Blue”

“Daphne Blue” feels a little like Warped Tour and a little like a hot day at the beach. The Band CAMINO keep their unique sound, guitar riffs, and borderline punk vocals. Releasing two songs so far in 2018, it’s safe to say there’s more to come this year.

“Blue” leaves imagery in our mind of a woman in black jeans and a t-shirt, gorgeous as ever, twirling on a bicycle or in a vintage shop; someone the lead singer is lusting after. Lead singer, Jeffrey Jordan sings the harsh words, “You shut the door and cut me open, now I’m wishin’ I was colorblind.” The guitars steal the rest of the song as listeners get thrown into a whirlwind romance.

Who You Need: Russo

WHO: Russo

WHERE: LA, California

GENRE: Rock/Punk

TOP SONGS: “Lonely” and “Ghost”

Lead singer and part-time model Cailin Russo describes Russo’s sound as “fast, honest, and high”. The breakout sound of this LA-based band will bring you back to simpler times filled with youthful energy.

House With A Pool is a diamond in the rough. “Bad Things” is a standout anthem, while “Joyride” provides poetic lyrics in a loving manner. Russo’s voice, similar to the late Amy Winehouse, sings gently, “Joyride, breaks through the night, enjoy the darkness, until we see light”  

“Loudmouth” is edgy, reminiscent of a Kings of Leon b-side. The short and sweet lyrics make Russo feel vintage like an old jacket found at Goodwill; filled with stories. You’re transported to a different time while listening to this album. A time that makes you wanna rebel, drive down a windy road, and sing karaoke in a dark bar.

Cailin recently told HypeBae about the bands future plans, “Next is tours, shows, festivals (not sure how much I can disclose) and hopefully another EP by the end of the year! Lil Christmas gift for y’all.”


Gambino Hijacks Summer

“Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer” couldn’t be more summer if they tried. Play this out on your boat and slowly feel all your worries slip away. Gambino captures the full essence of summer in two fresh new tracks he fittingly calls the Summer Pack.

“Magic” features a slight electro/tropical beat while Gambino sweetly sings, “is it summertime magic that makes me wanna dance all night long?” A dance-esque pulse soon takes over. Try NOT to dance. I dare you.

“Feels Like Summer” has a smooth retro feel to it. This one could’ve been plucked right out of the 70’s with pleasant oo’s and aa’s echoing in the background. If you play the two songs back to back, you almost can’t tell the difference; it just feels like one continuous stream of playful soundscapes.

Enjoy 🙂

“God’s Plan”

“8 Out Of 10”

“Mob Ties”

“Summer Games”
