WE Went to the Zoo

by Jovi Skyler

Greetings and salutations! Punk, alternative rock with an early '90s spirit and a hint of psychedelia. "We Went to the Zoo" is a new single off my debut EP. The track is about unrequited love, and it’s conflicted. It’s about caring and not caring, and then just being engulfed by those feelings.

Everybody Hates The Shit I Do

by Jared Morris and the Nice Price

Hey kids, I am the singer for the band My Version of It, while our drummer was in Europe this summer, I recorded a solo album with a group of guys called The Nice Price. Most of my solo stuff is experimental, but this is closer to My Version of It's sound. It means a lot to me and I hope you enjoy.

Crushed Veneer

We're a punk rock band from London. We just released our first single last month and this will be our second. We have an EP coming out in May. Musically we're pretty energetic with elements of pop-punk, rock, and indie. Lyrically we're more along the lines of 'orgcore' bands with hints of emo.
