Make It Back

by Long Past Overdue

'Take It For What It Is' is the debut album of Long Past Overdue, a four-piece alternative rock band and music collective that is actually just one dude. Inspired by the 90s alt rock, punk, and emo, Gus Schiochet sings, plays all instruments, and produces all the music by himself. Hope you like it!

PET HATES

Hi folks, we're PET HATES, a powerpop/emopop/all over the shop indie rock band from London, UK. We play fun and crunchy hooked filled tunes that take influence from everything from the get up kids to the Replacements, Martha to Prince, early REM to Superchunk. You'll want to move, hopefully.

For fans of

Beezewax

With comparisons by Q Magazine drawn to the melodic pop precision of Phoenix combined with the punk-fueled force of the mighty Dinosaur Jr, throw in some Teenage Fanclub harmonies, Buffalo Tom earnestness, and Superchunk energy and you’ve pretty much hit the nail on the head with the Beezewax sound.
