Wrong Again

by Abandon Ship!

Hey Team! We're Abandon Ship and this is the first tracl from our debut EP. We wrote/recorded/produced it ouselves so it means a lot to us. Lyrically the record follows a theme of first person anecdotes about being a pissed off Millenial. We like to think of it as if the 1975 and Pup made some music ;).

Ego Death

by Mutha-Falcon

Hey y'all! We're the afro-punk fusion band Mutha-Falcon and we stay hype. 'Ego Death' is a driving, high-energy, social commentary on what happens when small-town relevancy seeps into an individual's perception of themselves and consumes their state of mind. This is their attitude check.

Dark Force Rising

by Non Canon

Ahoy there, I'm Non Canon and this is the first song to have been released from my 2nd album 'Non Canon II'. It's one of the most stripped-back songs from the record instrumentation-wise, and is about my frustration with people hiding behind 'freedom of speech' to try and justify their bigotry.

For fans of

Plymouth

What's up everyone! This is Plymouth Breeze from Winnipeg, Manitoba. This track was inspired by a '97 Plymouth Breeze that bit the dust and is indefinitely in park. Using odd time signatures and harmony with a pop/punk sensibility, 'Plymouth' aims to capture the emotions of the human experience.
