Lorenzo Doryon Releases The Anthemic ‘Straight Into The Fire’

25-year old Italian-American model Lorenzo Doryon has swapped the photo studio for the recording studio as he gears up to release his debut EP. ‘Straight Into The Fire’ is a single taken from the EP and opens with Lorenzo singing “Take the dark days and send them to the sun” as the electronic clap beat kicks in and then blends with soaring electric guitar. The chorus is anthemic and is perfect for a live gig sing-along as the punch the air Clubland-esque beat pumps rhythmically.

Little Cities Release Eponymous EP – Reviewed By Josh Taerk

I am a huge fan of Pop Punk music. Some of my fondest memories take place in a now-closed club in Toronto waiting to watch bands like New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, Plain White T’s, and Fall Out Boy do their thing. So, when I heard the opening seconds of Little Cities self-titled EP, it felt like coming back home. Then I found out that this 5-piece alt-pop rock outfit is also from Canada and knew I was already home.

Dreams Can Come True: We Premiere Peppermint Heaven’s New EP ‘Dreams’

You’d have to be a relative newcomer to Essentially Pop to not have read our posts about Peppermint Heaven. The duo, comprising Juno and Spark, are a bundle of contradictions: they come from Chicago, they’re based in LA, but their sound is anything but representative of either city: rather it is a very pleasant trip down memory lane to the 80s and the sound of UK synth pop.
