Nothing To Celebrate

by Wood and Nails

The political and upper class are liars. That's it. This song was written in 2020/2021 when every time we opened social media or turned on the news there was another lie, another hypocrisy from the ruling class all the while making themselves richer and more powerful off the back of our suffering.

by One Million Motors

‘Poisoned Lungs’ was written and recorded throughout 2020; matching the frustration caused by the chaotic stop and start nature of each social restriction. There’s a rage behind this single. A harder take on our previous sound; we're playing faster and we're singing about things that matter.

Fear Up

by Crazy Arm

We're back! It's been seven years since our last record and we have a new album out (on 29th January 2021). 'Fear Up' is taken from it. It sounds (in our tiny minds) like Ennio Morricone conducting the Constantines. Giddy up. x
