The Pickup

Bands and new music for fans of PUP

Dream Boy

by Beach Bunny

"Dream Boy" was inspired by summer love - it is a song about being jaded to the idea of falling for someone again after being heartbroken in the past. It's about giving into the butterflies in your stomach even when love seems so scary at times.

For fans of

Dwell

by Split Feed

Hey! We're Split Feed from Newcastle in Australia, and this is our new single 'Dwell'. It's about the struggles that come with the ending of relationships, and what we do to try and forget them. It's our favourite release yet and features our rockiest rock guitar solo yet. Hope you enjoy!

For fans of

Pink Leather Jackets

With the age of online “please-screw-me” dating apps, infidelity seems to be trendy so “Shed” is inspired by the perspective of “the other man” who is fed up with his lying three-timing side. Feel free to break shit while listening to this song.

For fans of

Paper/Boy

We're Paper/Boy, a young indie-punk four-piece hailing from Derry City in Northern Ireland. Having formed in 2017, we've gained an amazing local fanbase after playing shows full of guitar-heavy indie anthems, inspired by the likes of Car Seat Headrest and PUP. Hopefully y'all like us! :)

For fans of

Hounding

Hey all, we're a Kent based band that play loud fuzzy music "Likened to grunge and sludge bands of a mostly bygone era, Hounding pairs thick visceral riffing with morose and ariose Corgan-esque howling in the unholiest of matrimony"

For fans of

SMUG

A musical powder keg three parts power pop, indie rock and pop punk, detonated by wild abandon – we are SMUG – high-octane guitar solos, jubilant hooks and slacker anthems inspire much headbanging, high-kicking, and windmilling.
