Off Track (Single Edit)

by Jovi Skyler

Howdy! Punk, alternative rock with an early '90s spirit and a hint of psychedelia. "Off Track" is about procrastination and the inevitable guilt that piles up by not following through with what you want to do. Every now and then it will make you crack up.

Help

by Danny Wright

Danny provides a safe place where listeners can let go of all their frustrations and admit they need help. It’s not enough to fix the world's problems, but it's enough to make someone feel a little bit better, if only for the duration of a 3-minute punk song.

Let It All Burn

by Love Ghost

'Let It All Burn' is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined - "fuck what they say, I make my own way."
