Nelson Muntz had an Absent Father Too

by Pillow Fort

Heya! I'm Ryan of Pillow Fort, a band straight out of the UK DIY emo scene. After becoming a 3 piece in 2021, we were finally able to record music together in May this year, and this is the result! The song is about the realisation that blood relation doesn't entitle someone to be in your life.
