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.

Science or Belief

by Bridges to Nowhere

Hi guys, this is the first track from our third album. During the pandemic we locked ourselves in our rehearsal room and recorded it all ourselves. It's always been hard for us to label our music, since each track is a little bit different. Just listen for yourselves and tell us what you think.

Ladies and gentlefolk, it's time to "Get Your Shit Together"! Combining blazing guitars, mischievous basslines, and drums that are wilder than a senior center on bingo night, the Chicago punk band is back with the first single from their forthcoming sophomore album, "Hell Is Real."

Northern Blood

by All Now

Hey, we’re All Now and we’re based in Salford, Greater Manchester. We’re inspired by everyone from Saves the Day to Deftones but with an unmistakably Northern English identity. This is our first single ‘Northern Blood’ and we think it’s a great intro to the sound and energy of our band. Enjoy!

Sympathy (& Validation)

by Latewaves

Sympathy and Validation is essentially a voicemail you leave your friend when you’re having a panic attack. Your brain is racing a mile a minute and you’re convinced that if you could just connect with someone and have them validate your feelings you could maybe find some semblance of peace.

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.

Drop Dead

by Halfway Atlantic

Premiering almost twelve months to the day from their last packed gig before lockdown, Drop Dead forms the capstone of the most emo year on record. It also serves as the title track for an aptly-named EP in a time of global pandemic, civil unrest, and collapsing infrastructure—DROP DEAD.

Phantom Pain

by Halfway Atlantic

I wanted to write something that was honest to my own experiences, while at the same time relatable. You can be overwhelmed by a wave of conflicting emotions when a relationship ends — and that love doesn’t immediately disappear. It’s painful and disorienting. - Matt Warmuth

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.
