Revolution Traffic

by Nrvs

Dutifully confrontational with an air of swaggering nonchalance, Nrvs employ alt-rock inspired anthemia that compounds the irony of the miring lyrical narrative; one that reflects on the tech-ridden, self-obsessed, instantaneous world we’ve created.

Died

For fans of

Bad Taste

by Nrvs

Creating unique sounds that are left of punk rock, their hardcore & gritty sound is far from ordinary. Pulling inspiration from ecological collapse, social dislocation, science fiction, one half of the duo is notably in Extinction Rebellion, with plenty to say.

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.
