Ghost

by I, The Lion

Yo! We are I, The Lion, a post-punk trio hailing from Gloucestershire. This is our new single Ghost, it's a pretty personal one for us and a feeling shared by so many people out there all about working so hard for something, and still be overlooked when it counts. So we vented that through riffs...

Behind The Blue Sky

by Sonny Hell

Behind The Blue Sky started as an attempt to write a song with a guitar hook reminiscent of The Jesus And Mary Chain, then it morphed into something a bit more inspired by Joy Division, now it probably sounds like neither... or both? The lyrics are about navigating a depression.

'Let It All Burn' is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined - "fuck what they say, I make my own way."
