Revolution Traffic

by Nrvs

Dutifully confrontational with an air of swaggering nonchalance, Nrvs employ alt-rock inspired anthemia that compounds the irony of the miring lyrical narrative; one that reflects on the tech-ridden, self-obsessed, instantaneous world we’ve created.

For fans of

Hard Of Thinking

by Disgraceland

We're Disgraceland, 3 arrogant misfits from Devon who just want to make an unholy racket that takes the last 60 years of rock and roll history, crank up the distortion and hammer the foot to the floor.

For fans of

Bad Taste

by Nrvs

Creating unique sounds that are left of punk rock, their hardcore & gritty sound is far from ordinary. Pulling inspiration from ecological collapse, social dislocation, science fiction, one half of the duo is notably in Extinction Rebellion, with plenty to say.

For fans of

Streetwalker

by Primitive State

I've been writing songs for 7 years, purely for myself. It wasn't until last year my record producer buddy said he'd do an album for me for free, simply because he wanted a copy for himself to listen to. The song 'Streetwalker' is like if The Stooges and The White Stripes banged. True story.
