Music Monday: Bite Me Bambi, BROHUG, Fransis Derelle, Rich Aucoin, and Hey, Chels

Orange County, CA ska/pop/punk 7-piece Bite Me Bambi is the next band poised to help usher in a new wave of the beloved yet often maligned genre.

Fronted by talented singer and superstar-in-the-making, Tahlena Chikami (who also moonlights as an actor and has appeared on shows like Parks and Recreation, Gilmore Girls, etc.), Bite Me Bambi sports a killer OC ska/punk pedigree, with other members having played in bands such as My Superhero, Save Ferris, and Starpool.

 

BROHUG’s latest EP “Mixtape 1,” is out now via their own imprint BROHOUSE. The Swedish trio opened the EP’s tracklist last month with “Party Out”.

Sonically all tracks revolve around BROHUG’s signature bass house style. Their previous release was “1990” with Kaskade (released on Jan 24). Since their inception in 2016, BROHUG worked with Ghastly, remixed Steve Angello, released on Confession, Spinnin’ Records, Dim Mak, Musical Freedom, Arkade.

 

Salt Lake City’s Fransis Derelle’s latest track “Tell Me” featuring Josh Rubinis a powerful track just in time for the Summer season. His unique take on future bass, trap, and dubstep mixed with Josh’s smooth vocals gives the perfect combination for a heartbreak anthem.

Fransis has shared stages with fellow bass music innovators like Flux Pavilion, Zomboy, NGHTMRE, Dillon Francis, Slander, and Marshmello, to name a few. Meanwhile upcoming vocalist Josh already has over a million streams of his tracks which include collaborations with Whookilledkenny?, Gould and Elyah. 

 

Indie Rock musician, Rich Aucoin is thrilled to release his new single “How it Breaks” that is out now via Haven Sounds. The song is a call to action and references several classic songs of protest.

Rich says, “After listening to David Bowie’s Young Americans, I got into the idea about referencing a song which is also referencing a song as that song’s bridge references The Beatles’ A Day In The Life.” The song references Aretha Franklin, Rage Against The Machine, Funkadelic, Rolling Stones, and the production of Rihanna.

 

San Diego’s Hey, Chels will release their debut full-length ‘Everything Goes’ digitally for FREE on May 1st. The LP will also be released on vinyl later this year via Brainworm Records.

The band says, “Our reasoning is that we don’t feel right asking for money right now with the current state of everything. If you feel like helping the band out, share us with a friend, add us to a playlist, share us on your socials, we would very much appreciate it.”
