Just Me

by Y!KES

We’ve always enjoyed things of a dystopian nature. So to stumble through Birmingham with nobody there was equally as terrifying as it was satisfying. It’s really tough to spot the difference between the good guy & the bad guy anymore, so I guess at the very least it’s important to know yourself.

THIS LIFE

This song was written about a relative who moved on. Her house was the central meeting place for a large family so when that house and home disappeared it became hard to keep everything pulled together. It’s about accepting that that’s okay.

Joliette from Puebla, Mexico describe their music as "post-everything" with intricate compositions that bring together influences from post-hardcore, metal, math rock, and other subgenres of punk, in a way that balances fierceness with delicacy.
