New Music Spotlight with Foo Fighters, MONOWHALES & MORE

By Phjoshua @thereviewsarein

New Music from Foo Fighters, MONOWHALES, Tyler Shaw, Kip Moore, and elijah woods

This edition of the New Music Spotlight has a massive rock and roll band, an indie trio that keeps making waves, pop, country, and the debut solo single of an artist we're all in on.

2021 has already offered a bunch of great new music, and we know it's just the start of whatever this year will end up being. There's light at the end of a very long dark tunnel. We all just need to do our best to hold on and get to it. We hope these songs help you with that a little bit today.

Turn 'em up. Share your favourites with your friends!

Ready? Let's go!

Artist: Foo Fighters
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Genre: Rock
Related: Pearl Jam, Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana
Single: Waiting On A War
Notes: In celebration of frontman Dave Grohl's 52nd birthday and in anticipation of the band's upcoming album, Medicine at Midnight (February 5, 2021), Waiting On A War may be the last song we get before the album drops. It's heavy in a lyrical way, prompting some scary feelings and a reality that we all try to avoid but sometimes can't get away from. And whether you are waiting on a war, or take it as a metaphor, it's right there ready for you.

Hometown: Toronto, ON
Genre: Indie / Pop / Rock
Related: The Beaches, Dear Rouge, July Talk
Song: Out With The Old
Notes: MONOWHALES teased that there was a new single coming and that became Out WIth The Old. Then they went ahead and announced that their new album Daytona Bleach will drop on March 5, 2021. The indie outfit continues to do what we love from them on Out With The Old, getting our feet moving, heads bobbing and makes us really, really look forward to seeing them play this and all of their new music live when it's safe and they're ready!

Artist: Tyler Shaw
Hometown: Coquitlam, BC
Genre: Pop
Related: Scott Helman, Virginia to Vegas, Alyssa Reid
Song: When You're Home
Notes: Canadian-made pop star Tyler Shaw is back with When You're Home and he slows everything right down to give us all the feels. If you're lucky enough to have what he's singing about, you know. And if you miss it, dream of it, want it - you know it too.

Artist: Kip Moore
Hometown: Tifton, GA
Genre: Country
Related: Dustin Lynch, Drake White, Canaan Smith
Song: How High
Notes: Fan favourite, Kip Moore's got a new one, and country fans who love his live show and attitude should dive in. How High (and its video. I hope I'm as cool as this woman someday) are three-and-a-half minutes worth your time. And, that chorus is going to have folks singing along in the crowd when he gets back up on stage. Trust me.

Artist: elijah woods
Hometown: Perth, ON
Genre: Pop
Related: JESSIA, Scott Helman, Delaney Jane
Song: lights
Notes: A pop performer, producer, writer, and emerging star on the scene, elijah woods is striking out on his own with lights, and he's going to make waves. He's already known for his JUNO nominated work, and now he's set to take the spotlight for himself. lights is one to move to, dance to, and if you listen, one that will share something deeper and more personal than you might have thought. Turn it up!
