It’s a great time to be a Yes fan. Various members of the band’s extended family tree are incredibly busy right now. The band have announced the release of a new album, ‘The Quest’ due in October. In addition, Steve Howe will be releasing ‘Homebrew 7’ – another collection of home demos at the end of July and ex-keyboard player Tony Kaye is getting ready to release his first ever solo album.
Their name might not be the most familiar yet, but Orange County ska band Bite Me Bambi are about to become part of your summer soundtrack. They’ve been releasing digital singles since 2019, but their new release is one that’s sure to put them on the map.
“Life has a way of pushing you away and turning you upside down” warns frontman Nick Lanari in one of the key lines of Summer Years’ current single ‘This Light’.

It’s main refrain even offers a few words of advice we could all take to heart: “be yourself and you’ll get through.”

Upon release last month, the debut single from alternative singer songwriter Ammo gained a lot of positive press from alternative and indie-centric music blogs. …And rightly so, as her new track really taps into some classic and very retro dream pop sounds.
