Indie pop group The Melismatics have been a fixture of Minneapolis for the past ten years, and two of their members, Ryan and Pony, have started releasing music as a duo.

Minnesota artists are known for their storytelling abilities, and LowRay are no exception to this. Although drummer James Irving originally hails fromEngland, LowRay are otherwise Minnesota through and through, and the band has gained a considerable reputation in the local scene, for the inventiveness and style of their music.
Mary Bue was originally from Princeton Minnesota, and is now based in Minneapolis. She’s been in the music business for nearly twenty years and finds creativity in the dark aspects of life, through which she’s able to come up with a melancholy vibe, while at the same time not becoming too cynical. Mary’s latest track, ‘The Shit I Left In Duluth’, is her latest release.
With their heavy rock/industrial style, Gabriel and the Apocalypse are dramatic and theatrical, but in the words of frontwoman Lindy Gabriel, “not over polished. You can feel the emotion. You can feel the anger.” The band has been together in its current formation since 2011, and have recently released the video for their new song, ‘Thrill Of The Kill’.

Now Owen has released their new single, ‘Settled Down’, along with a stunning music video.
