For fans of

Insomnia

by Pet Crow

We're Pet Crow & this track is VERY self-explanatory - It's quick, fuzzy, garage-punk, with a hint of frustration. If you don't know what the song is about, we want to know your secrets! This is the 2nd single from our 2nd LP 'Take The Edge Off'. We also made a daft DIY video on YouTube you can check out.

For fans of

Austerity

Hey, we're a three piece anarchist post-punk band from Brighton. Herded is our latest single, its a song about the alienating drudgery of commuting. We hope it resonates with you.

For fans of

Vulgarians

‘Dead People Are Easier To Love’ marks an assertive step forward for the group’s sound, turning to 80s synthesisers and the likes of Cold Cave and John Maus for inspiration. Penned just 72 hours before the band were set to record with Greaves, the new single captures a sonic and lyrical urgency.
