Two long time IHM favorites come together to make sweet, sweet music on HiLo, which really leaves us in much more a “high” than a “low”. Olivver The Kid, who we can’t be more grateful has returned to the music scene lately with new tunes, links up with Los Angeles alt band ARMORS on the nostalgic alt ballad, whose retro-80s veneer and smooth smoky pop is like The Neighbourhood gone The Chain Gang Of 1974. HiLo is an epic soiree, and it pumps us up just when we need it, considering the crazy wild amount of tasks we have to finish before we fly out to Austin in less than 24 hours. Thanks, guys! The magnificent alt pop anthem can also be spinned on Spotify, here.

Y’all know how much we’re fond of ARMORS and their sooty searing, passionate burning alt pop and rock. We’re still incredibly proud to have premiered a number of their songs earlier on. I’ve found that I have a really hard time selecting a favorite out of the Los Angeles based band’s collection of tunes, because they’re all so infectiously good. At any one moment, I could be doting on Parasite, or maybe on Genesis, or perhaps on Overdose…. or maybe, I’m fawning over this one, Kerosene, the band’s collaboration with Sir Sly’s Jason Suwito. Today, we get to revisit Kerosene’s soaring hooks and Olen Kittelsen’s breathy intense falsettos via an electrifying remix by Vancouver production duo WE ARE FURY. They’ve given Kerosene a jolting, jarring beast of a trap and bass remix. Its sheer strength and explosive power is a befitting extension of ARMORS’ incendiary potency. You can grab the remix for free, here.

Orange County three piece ARMORS continue their swinging momentum with a brand new single, NAME, after creating a resounding splash in the scene with songs like Keroscene, Overdose, and Genesis, a few of which we’re proud to have premiered on IHM. NAME is a bold pounding alt rock anthem on which Olen Kittelsen’s smooth falsettos soar with passion. The band played a scintillating set at Popscene just last month, revving up the crowd with their sooty blazing anthems. Name can be purchased from iTunes, here

If Elon Musk had already built a hyperloop here in California, there’s no doubt I would have swooped my way down to Los Angeles earlier this week to catch one of my favorite emerging bands at School Night. And I may have had the fortune of hearing this next one in person for the first time, too. Orange County’s ARMORS links up with Sir Sly’s Jason Suwito on new song Keroscene. Jason’s production touch can certainly be felt on the sleek sooty alt pop anthem, which also sports some The Neighborhood vibes. A sliver of sultry R&B pop endows this infectious gyrating jam. Stream or purchase Keroscene from major outlets and alternate services, here. Re-visit ARMORS prior songs on Soundcloud, a few of which IHM is proud to have blog premiered in the past.

Honestly, I’m still obsessing over ARMORS’ last single, Genesis, a song which IHM proudly premiered earlier this year and and for which the Orange County band surprise released a fabulous acoustic version a couple weeks ago, too. But it’s obvious I need to make space in my heart for their new song, Overdose, and straight away, too. Overdose is produced by Jason Suwito of Sir Sly, and it certainly boasts some of that IHM favorite’s bold resonating, sooty brooding flavor. Frontman Olen Kittelsen leads us into this powerful tour de force with his resolute vocals, which fly higher than ever with flawless agility. Overdose’s synth laden alt rock is magnificently hooking. This is an imposing anthem that adds to the unbridled momentum of ARMORS’ rising buzz.

To be honest, I’m still aglow from the pleasure and honor it was to premiere rising Orange County band ARMORS’ excellent new single Genesis, which, from what I can gather, has since picked up quite a lot of indie radio play and admiring attention. Genesis’ vibrant swelling alt pop and bittersweet sweeping alt rock is made of  solid gold. ARMORS surprises us today with an acoustic version of Genesis, leaving me swooning with the raw riveting, piano propulsive rendition on which lead vocalist Olen Kittelsen’s vocals shine even more brilliantly. Listen to the original track, here. Genesis is available now on iTunes.
