Bad Tatoo

by oh, rain

Hey folks. This is the second song from our upcoming EP titled Awful Things. It's a really good indicator of what the rest of that EP will sound like. We replaced our guitar player in early 2022 and this was the first song we wrote with him, so it's got a bit more of an 80s guitar vibe to it!

I Call Him Gamblore

Nothing To Celebrate

by Wood and Nails

The political and upper class are liars. That's it. This song was written in 2020/2021 when every time we opened social media or turned on the news there was another lie, another hypocrisy from the ruling class all the while making themselves richer and more powerful off the back of our suffering.

Poisoned Lungs

by One Million Motors

‘Poisoned Lungs’ was written and recorded throughout 2020; matching the frustration caused by the chaotic stop and start nature of each social restriction. There’s a rage behind this single. A harder take on our previous sound; we're playing faster and we're singing about things that matter.

Well Enough Alone


It’s a song about unrequited love, pure and simple. Boy meets girl at a party, girl finds another guy, boy gets his heart broken and goes home. It’s fun, it’s sad, it’s verging on whiny... hope you like it!

Love Song in 2020

by James Barrett

Hi! I'm James! When the planet shutdown in March I wrote a song about finding forgiveness at what felt like the end of the world. Dealing with a relationship that ended catastrophically and a global pandemic at the same time was a lot to process. I wrote Love Song in 2020 for everyone in that boat.

by One Million Motors

One Million Motors is deja vu, like stories from strangers where you already know the ending. lt's the coffee and cigarette musings of The Menzingers; the tongue twitching urgency of the Descendents; the stumbling everyman poetics of Dave Hause.
