Bedbug

by Writhe

Hi, we are Writhe from Copenhagen in Denmark, and this is our track Bedbug. “Bedbug” attempts to present a story about our ‘human’ civilization - or lack hereof - as selfish, lust-driven and tragically unable to comprehend that the ground on which we stand is crumbling beneath our feet. We hope you enjoy.

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.

Mistakes

by One Million Motors

One Million Motors is deja vu, like stories from strangers where you already know the ending. lt's the coffee and cigarette musings of The Menzingers; the tongue twitching urgency of the Descendents; the stumbling everyman poetics of Dave Hause.

For fans of

Drool

Comprised of Joey Rogers (vox/guitar), Martin Söderin (drums), Joe Bennison (bass) and Louis Greenway (guitar), Drool employ a palette of pummelling drum beats and discordant guitars to create a sound with the sky-scraping prowess of the 90’s grunge era and the wily spirit of 60s garage-pop records.

For fans of

Cockwomble

We're Cockwomble, a 3 piece punk from Brighton. Our music has been described as joyous, furious, bitingly sarcastic, probably treasonable, but with dripping melodies, sharp riffs, hook-laden and super catchy whilst full of black humour. Punk for the modern age!
