Damn Cargo

Hi, we're Damn Cargo, from various bits of Derbyshire. Our debut EP Machine Cut is out on May 3, we recorded it with Lewis Johns (Rolo Tomassi, Muncie Girls, Palm Reader) and we're super-proud of it. Our influences are a mix of post-hardcore, grunge and pop... oh, and some dark indie too. Enjoy!

Hana Piranha

Hana Piranha are a band that breach genre with their use of traditionally classical instrumentation, such as violin and harp, in a hard rock setting. Hana’s razor sharp violin licks are undeniably impressive, enabling that band to create a sound that is both dark and tantalising.

Hands Off Gretel

The Yorkshire grunge pop four-piece have released a video for their new single "S.A.S.S". The video was directed by band leader and vocalist Lauren Tate, who says: "S.A.S.S is a big 'F You' to all those that have doubted you."

For fans of

BABYTEETH

Hey Musical Lovers, we're called BABYTEETH b/c we think we'll probably all fall out! Not really, we're as tight as ever, on and off the stage. We're a 5 piece London alt-rock band and this is our 2nd single, "Shame". Produced by Cam Blackwood, it smacks you around the head - play loud. Love, BT

We're an Upbeat alt rock band firing out of Glasgow. With darkly satirical lyrics, and a conflict of styles from 70's rock'n'roll to 90's grunge! We have a few tracks "Twist or Stick" and "Legs Akimbo" available on our Soundcloud so check us out!
