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.

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.
