By: Kat O’Brien

Nalani and Sarina Bolton are a singer-songwriter duo from Delaware. They are immensely talented and combine fantastic vocals with thoughtful lyrics. Their guitar, piano and tambourine skills bring it home to create a truly harmonious tone. Loyola was lucky enough to be graced with their presence this year. Baltimore is going to be lucky enough to welcome Nalani and Sarina again this summer at Honfest. The two will be performing at WLOY’s stage on June 14th. Listen to their music on Spotify  and learn more about them on their website: http://www.nalanisarina.com/.Unknown-1

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To?

Thursday, April 24th, 2014 by Billy Dries

hqdefaultRachel Stoczko – Hozier – From Eden EP – 

This newly released EP from Irish artist, Hozier, has been on repeat since I discovered it last week. I first heard Hozier on Teen Wolf, judge me, with his work from his first EP, and his second certainly does not disappoint. I cannot stop listening to the hauntingly beautiful tones and intricate lyrics of all four songs off the new EP. Give it a listen and melo out.

Top 20 Tracks 4.20.14

Thursday, April 24th, 2014 by Billy Dries

Jamie-xx-Girl-300x150This week we have the highly anticipated “Girl” topping our chart. The xx producer/percussionist released his fourth solo single earlier this week, and it’s thumping bass and reverb vocal makes dancing to this track almost irresistible. Also on our chart is another cut off of Mac DeMarco’s Salad Days, as well as tUnE-yArDs’ “Water Fountain” which received an extremely psychedelic music video this week (check it out here). And more important than all of that, check back every week for our updated Top 20!

Lithium Burn 

Grade: A

Deleted Scene’s new album, set to release April 15 definitely captures the essence of their music-art rock. Melodic rhythms, infused with some math rock, helps set this band apart from others. This album definitely demonstrates are much this band has grown, how mature they are and how knowledge/talented they are on their instruments. Lithium Burn also gives you a very pop sound, heard on the title track ” Haircuts/Uniforms.” (more…)

Review: Night Riots- Young Love

Thursday, April 10th, 2014 by Margaret Jokoh

thNight Riots

Young Lore

Grade: A

California rocker, Night Riots self-funded this amazing EP. Young Lore is just 6 songs of absolute fun-it combines, harmonic vocals, solid drumming and simple yet amazing guitar riffs. The saying, “simple is better” really defines these indie rocker, though each song is clearly thought out, none of the songs are over produced instrumental wise. (more…)
