London duo, Charlotte Spiral releases “All This Time, Asleep,” the title track of their up and coming third EP, following last year’s New Light release. Charlotte Spiral is formed by Amy Spencer and Avi Barath. The collaborating artists name stems from it's figure-skating locomotion origin.
Speaking on the single, Amy shares: “‘All This Time, Asleep’ is based on an argument between myself and a loved one. I’m being rude and just saying whatever I like, feeling like a failure, spending so much time ‘looking for myself’ or trying to figure things out. Though while I’m doing this, I forget to think how they might be feeling, and to remember that we’re two people. Throughout the track, I wanted to describe the scene we were in: ‘trying on a new shirt’ was a metaphor used to portray that I want to try this new me out, but it might not fit. At the end of the song, I am lying in the shirt, fully ready to commit and be together. It does fit me…”
"All This Time, Asleep" is available on streaming services now.

Faetooth is a four piece experimental metal outfit based in Los Angeles, California. The self coined "fairy-doom" band is made up of guitarists/vocalists Ash and Ari, bassist/vocalist Jenna Garcia, and their drummer Rah. Faetooth's members being long-time friends since their youth growing up within the Los Angeles music scene created a tight-knit bond expanding how they convey instrumentally. Basing their ever evolving sound around doom metal riffs, shoegaze-esque melodies, and perfected sludgy soundscapes.
Furthering their musical presence comes brand new single, Echolalia. The tune is held near and dear to the band, as it was the first song Faetooth composed after the release of their 2019 debut EP ... An Invocation - Echolalia displays the band’s adept ability to move from thundering to somber, a dynamic that is anchored by a simple, yet haunting riff. Choruses explode with fuzzy guitars and a hard grooving bassline, carried by the singular refrain: “On thy knees now / We fall with what we build” – a reflection on the lore of the Tower of Babylon. Concluding with a growling breakdown and eviscerating lead guitar, Faetooth officially introduces their exciting new chapter announcing their upcoming full length album Remnants of The Vessel out October 28th, 2022 (Dune Altar.)
Echolalia's lyric visualizer was premiered by Metal Injection and is directed, filmed, and edited by their very own guitarist Ari (@filthywitch) - available for viewing below!
