For fans of

Jagd

Hi guys! We are Jagd, an indie band from Amsterdam! Our music consists of a fiery mix of freaky indie rock and Broadway punk. "David Lynch meets Alice in Wonderland", Dutch press praised our previous work for bluntly dragging audiences into their ominous "hell of heavenly noise". Here's our new EP!

For fans of

Jaeger Wells

Wells latest single "Wish I'd Known You" showcases the Pittsburgh native's emotive, melodic and beautifully crafted indie-punk sound. Wells once again teams with The Early November's Ace Enders, who is behind the controls on the new single.

For fans of

cheerbleederz

London indie punk trio cheerbleederz release their debut EP faceplant today. As a taster of what’s to come from the rest of the record, you can listen to lead single ‘cabin fever’ right now—a track about being unable to tell someone how you feel, and in turn feeling trapped by that situation.

For fans of

The Groves

We are a London based 4 piece, indie-punk band. We've been gigging around town for the past 12 months and are midway through completing our as yet untitled first album. The cunningly titled 'The Groves EP' is available on spotify/itunes/applemusic etc now!

For fans of

Paper/Boy

We're Paper/Boy, a young indie-punk four-piece hailing from Derry City in Northern Ireland. Having formed in 2017, we've gained an amazing local fanbase after playing shows full of guitar-heavy indie anthems, inspired by the likes of Car Seat Headrest and PUP. Hopefully y'all like us! :)

For fans of

Pillow Talk

Hey, we're Pillow Talk - Callum, Luc and Lukas from Glasgow. 'Strangers' is the title track of our second EP, an homage to pop-punk bands of the early naughties who share a love of loud music with emotional underpinnings.

For fans of

Carter Daze

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.

For fans of

Crushed Veneer

We're a band from London, heavily influenced by The Gaslight Anthem and Beach Slang. We've been playing in and around London for the last 6 months and just released our debut EP 'Desire and the Need to Live'.

For fans of

Sea Lilies

Newish band of 3 guys who have been in a bunch of other bands in the past - most recently Dead Mechanical and Sick Sick Birds

For fans of

Lionizer

Lionizer are an indie-punk tour de force of blood, sweat and body parts. Their songs deal with insecurity, promiscuity, suicidal ideation... but with a focus on the hope that things can be better and that you don't have to buy into soul-grinding social expectations.
