by Open Palms

Candystripers - the nickname for nursing assistants, who we clapped for in lockdown, but turn a blind eye to supporting with better pay. Our most caustic song, a political song drawn from anger at the UK. A cynical Tory government keeps our NHS underfunded in favour of profit. This is our riposte.

by Virgins

Hey, were about to release our new gaze-pop single, 's l o w l y, l o n g', The single finds us embracing pop-centric melodic influences as much as the multitude of fuzz and reverb pedals that adorn our pedalboards. Lyrically the track speaks of unchecked desire being set free.

Our debut single “Need to Feel" is a powerful and intense track that starts with a strong, aggressive guitar riff, coupled with technical drums that set the tone for the entire track.
