NPR Names Some Ember’s ‘Thrashing Whip’ (Avalon Emerson Remix) As One Of The Best Dance Tracks In June

unnamed (8)

Some Ember is Nina Chase and Dylan Travis.

Self-produced and recorded over a period of two years, the new full-length album from Calfornia duo Some Ember is the culmination of a range of experience for these two wanderers. Some Ember is rich with meaning, sonic creativity, and emotional energy, a striking evolution from previous releases Hotel of Lost Light and Asleep in the Ice Palace. Here, cold synthesizers and harsh industrial beats dominate the A-side, while swirling drone and organic percussion characterize the unique second half. The exceptional voices of Dylan Travis and Nina Chase balance the record, their melodies anchoring things firmly in the pop realm.

Weekly Featured Band: Work To Win

Do you like to win? OF COURSE YOU DO! That’s why we in Work To Win have set out to make a soundtrack to your winning, by making songs that bring a smile to your face and get stuck in your head for days! We’d like to consider our sound something unique and different (and others have already agreed!), but our influences can basically be thrown into a mixing pot and bits and pieces of each can be heard in our songs. The breezy, airy sounds of 90′s acoustic alternative-rock tracks (Matchbox Twenty, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews Band), the energy and drive of 90′s pop-punk (Weezer, Green Day, blink-182), the piano-based creativity of modern day alternative-pop (fun., The Hush Sound, Jack’s Mannequin), and the melodic/harmonic sense of classic 60′s rock (The Beatles, The Who, The Beach Boys).
