Alt-rock band Keys and Corridors is proud to premiere the new music video for their track, “One Hundred,” today on HM. The Akron, OH-based trio combines guitar-driven instrumentation and soaring female vocals for a sound fans of Paramore and Anberlin would recognize.

Tracked by Nick Ingram from Capital House Studio and mixed and mastered by Kirk Teachout, the song was one of the most honest the band has ever written. “The music video was an incredible way to convey the emotions we put in to the song,” vocalist Kaylene Widdoes said to us. “We were able to film in a beautiful church, and the imagery we got from the stained glass throughout the day truly brought the heart of the song.”

We also spoke with guitarist Lauren Seveney about the song and how it came together:

“It’s incredible how organic this song came to us as a band. I don’t think I’ve ever just sat down at a piano and let my hurt be so vulnerably expressed. I was immensely privileged to know my grandmother for 23 years of my life, and she was such an integral part in shaping who I am. This song, I think, expresses both the joy of knowing and loving someone, and the pain in learning how to say goodbye. We also wanted to honor her memory in her faith, which is why we chose to bring church imagery in both the lyrics and video presentation. She was faithful even to the end, by far one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I hope I made her proud.”

The band already has an EP available now. If you’re in the Akron area, the band has a show on July 29 at Musica.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
