The Pickup

Bands and new music for fans of Jimmy Eat World

Paperfriend

Locate The Harbour

Locate the Harbour's second EP comes in the form of 'Medicine'; a thank you to all those who helped Robbie through the loss of his Grandfather. Taking on a more mature sound, these songs play a very personal chord with Robbie. 'MEDICINE' OUT NOW.

For fans of

My Own Co-Pilot

My Own Co-Pilot is Michal Kosinski and Derrek Siemieniuk, who plays in Adalie and Save Empty Vessels. We have recorded these songs for people who like punk/emo/hardcore. Basically, songs with strong melodies sung with intense yet powerful vocals.

For fans of

Holy Pinto

The song “Gold Leaf” is about distance, the restless feeling of wanting to ramble, of being wide-eyed about the world and wanting to chase experience. The song is tinged with sadness and regret; about what you sometimes give up, the potential of letting someone down and leaving them behind whilst.

For fans of

Summerteeth

We're pop-punk band Summerteeth from Toronto. Our song 'Stay Warm' amplifies their original Jimmy Eat World, Weezer influences with a strong dose of contemporaries Turnover & Moose Blood, creating a sound that takes a classic emo driven approach, with one foot placed directly in a pop foundation.

For fans of

Carter Daze

Good day to you! We are Carter Daze from Woking (Surrey's arsehole), and we play depressing-socio-indie-punk that leaves you with the feeling that there may be slight hope for us all after all. We have some banging choruses too! Check out our debut EP "North Korean Democracy' on Bandcamp.

For fans of

Xadium

We're emo/pop punk group Xadium, from Swindon. Our new song "Overshadowed" has been in the making since last year and it's about keeping your head above the waves of modern life, never losing hope and staying true to yourself. We hope you enjoy it!

For fans of

For fans of

Locate The Harbour

I’ve been in and out of bands since I was 16 years old, but something happened towards the end of 2017 - I finally found the courage to do this all on my own. DIY Punk/Emo songs from a weird Gribly kid, who never really wanted to fit in.

For fans of

No Sunlight

Hi! We're No Sunlight, a riffy, punky, bouncy, melodic rock band from Manchester, UK - We've just released our new EP 'You can't take a picture of this, it's already gone' which we're super happy to finally have out. We've have a music video for our lead track 'It's Always Been You'! Ta!

For fans of

All Better

ALL BETTER are a Brighton based dirty-pop trio. Their debut E.P 'A Turn at Being Cool', boasts 6 beautifully 90's tainted tracks that dip toes in both hard and soft ends of the punk spectrum. Here's the debut video for "Like TV", taken from their debut release, coming soon via Speaking Tongues.

For fans of

Screech Bats

Screech Bats was formed by Lexi and Kit of Hearts Under Fire. The best way to describe our sound would be melodic punk rock, swaying more towards the rock side of things. Think Alkaline Trio meets Against Me! with an extra big serving of uncomfortable emotions.

For fans of

Twin Towns

Hi! We're two Midlanders making pop-rock / pop-punk music. We've been nerds-of-a-feather friends for years, and Twin Towns was born out a desire to just get writing and recording again. 'Both Sides of Hope' is our first release, and is a summer love story in two parts, told from two perspectives.
