Northern Lights

by Vampire Slumber Party

I wrote this song when I was working a crappy job for an awful, patronising boss. Weeks seemed to last about 10 days, weekends flew by in what felt like hours, and all I seemed to do was bite my tongue and dream about the northern lights. I'm sure we've all been there...

"Hi, I'm Matt Caskitt and these are The Breaks!" If you were seeing us live right now as you're reading this, that's what you'd be hearing. When my marriage fell apart and Caskitt went on indefinite hiatus, I wrote a bunch of songs that turned into this album: "Welcome Home".

Die Young

by Fight Back Mountain

Hey we're Fight Back Mountain, and this is the lead single off of our upcoming album, "Lavender Sky." It's our second album. It's very 90s, if that's your thing. Also kind of sounds like 2000s Org-Core. If you're old enough to know what that means. *crying laughing emoji*

Hit By A Bus

by Parker Woodland

“Hit By A Bus” imagines calling up an old friend, only to be told they have died. The chorus -- “If I die tomorrow / please just don’t forget to sing” -- is an admonition to live life to the fullest and share it with others, a sentiment at the center of Erin Walter’s humanist ministry.

The Beast Must Die is based on the idea of Mono-consciousness by Colin Wilson, who focused on striving to live with a heightened sense of meaning and avoiding a closed mindset. Plus noise!

Well Enough Alone

by BRAINCOATS

It’s a song about unrequited love, pure and simple. Boy meets girl at a party, girl finds another guy, boy gets his heart broken and goes home. It’s fun, it’s sad, it’s verging on whiny... hope you like it!

Bombs and Promises

by Ignitemares

We are Ignitemares, a punk rock 3 piece from South Wales. This is a satirical pop punk song written and recorded at home during lockdown! We were challenged to write a song to this title, we felt it sounded Anti-US/Green-Day-ish and ran with that idea. It's rough and silly, hope you enjoy!
