Ghost

by I, The Lion

Yo! We are I, The Lion, a post-punk trio hailing from Gloucestershire. This is our new single Ghost, it's a pretty personal one for us and a feeling shared by so many people out there all about working so hard for something, and still be overlooked when it counts. So we vented that through riffs...

The Window

by Sam Russo

From Sam: ”The Window is about chasing down your demons, Evil Dead 2 style. It was the first song I recorded for Back To The Party and it’s the only good thing I’ve ever done before 7am with two guys in a sweaty room with a two-way mirror.” Back To The Party, his third album, is a diverse-sounding record with a broad spectrum of emotions on display. You can hear the loyalty and the love, the fear and the hope, the desperation and the triumph. You can also hear Sam trying new things as he crafts 33 minutes of his best stuff yet.
