MUSIC VIDEO: The Notionaries - "Excited Eyes"

I love new music, and The Notionaries are one of my favourite new bands. We've been playing "Excited Eyes" for a wee while now, and they've just posted the music video. Check it out, and read what the band think of the song below.

"Excited Eyes" comes off their debut album, due out later this year. The single is available now on iTunes.

In their words:
The Notionaries pay close attention to their lyrics, which display a sense of confidence and thoughtful empowerment. Their fresh, courageous message offers listeners the will to overcome trials and live in freedom. In "Excited Eyes," they address the joys of chasing your dreams and the clarity that can exist, even when there's a million ways that you could go in life. It's music with a mission – reminding people that it's okay to live in the unsafe and the unknown. This idea merges peace and uncertainty, while triggering a meaningful craving in the soul. It inspires an individual to start a personal revolution by embracing the change agents in his or her own life.
It's the kind of music that illuminates your day. You'll want to hear it while driving down the highway with your car windows down, wearing your shades and tapping the steering wheel. No matter how cloudy, cold or stormy the day is, the Notionaries will always make you feel like its summer.

Rapture Ruckus releases Invader Deluxe Edition

Rapture Ruckus' Invader EP's were designed to be two separate projects. The first volume was created in the group's typical hip-hop/pop style while the second featured a raw/rocking production. Fusing these two EPs together and throwing them into a volcano (see what we did there?) may sound like a hot mess, but the result works surprisingly well.

So if you didn't pick up either of the EP's when they came out, now's your chance.

Get it on iTunes now.
