Following their January single, "Oh My, Oh My," Devon Kay & the Solutions is back with "Oh My, Oh My, We're Far Past That Now."

Playing what the group describes as "power pop with brass," "'OMOMWFPTN' is one of those songs I wrote about a very specific snapshot in my life that feels like it's taken on a broader appeal,'" Kay explains. "I wanted to make something akin to Tom Petty if dude was vaguely punk and flirted with Death Cab for Cutie... in space. The song is littered with melodic 'inside jokes' to the bands we spent 2019 touring with so keep an ear out for those." 

The band also released a full-length last year on A-F Records.

Chelsea Wolfe has a new single, out now, called "Anhedonia." The new track features labelmate Emma Ruth Rundle on vocals and guitar and was written in 2019 and recorded last year, mid-2020.

Speaking of the song, Wolfe says:

I wrote "Anhedonia" after I experienced it during summer of 2019, then tucked the song away and moved forward with my acoustic album and subsequent North American tour. When COVID-19 hit and stay-at-home orders began in 2020, my European tour was canceled and I had to fly home. Restless, I started listening through my archives of unfinished songs and little unused ideas. When I heard "Anhedonia" again, it hit me how strangely relevant the lyrics felt to current times. I’d been wanting to work on a song with Emma for a long time, so I recorded it and sent it her way. She graciously added her gorgeous vocals and lead guitar, and then Ben [Chisholm] mixed it, adding his signature sound landscape as a fortress around the song. As I listened back to the final version, I was finally able to set free those emotions which I couldn’t feel back in 2019. I had worries around releasing the song, not wanting to romanticize the condition of anhedonia (the inability to feel pleasure), but I also understood that it could possibly be cathartic for others who are struggling, as it was for me, to sing and dance my way out of a depression.

The single is available on digital platforms via Sargent House.
