Bands and new music for fans of weezer

Cassettes

Our debut LP Wild Heart was recorded with Ace Enders & Nik Bruzzese and mixed by Vince Ratti (The Wonder Years, The Menzingers). It is our love letter to the FM era and recalls pop radio of the 70s, 80s and 90s while keeping its feet firmly planted in the modern day.

The Trust Fund Kids

Greetings, punks! This is a song that means a lot to me because it's one of the first songs I wrote that I felt truly proud of. It's worth listening to because if you don't I will drink an entire gallon of milk in under a minute. You are liable for whatever happens legally 'cause that's the law.

For fans of

Hounding

Hey all, we're a Kent based band that play loud fuzzy music "Likened to grunge and sludge bands of a mostly bygone era, Hounding pairs thick visceral riffing with morose and ariose Corgan-esque howling in the unholiest of matrimony"

Good day to you! We are Carter Daze from Woking (Surrey's arsehole), and we play depressing-socio-indie-punk that leaves you with the feeling that there may be slight hope for us all after all. We have some banging choruses too! Check out our debut EP "North Korean Democracy' on Bandcamp.
