A Radio Rock Roundup

As the title indicates, the below round up of singles is a group of hard hitting songs that sound tailor made for radio.

time to get loud [single reviews]

A Tiger Made of Lightning - "Little Birds": If you know anything about Tuned Up, you know we're suckers for good old-fashioned wholesome content.
