The Pickup

Bands and new music for fans of Post-punk

Ultra Violent

by The Stealers

Ultra Violent tackles the theme of teenage rebellion and angst emphasised by the dirty tone of the instruments, punchy drums and cutting vocals. It's definitely one of the most creative and professional songs we have released so far. A wall of sound that you can feel just as much as you can hear.

Modern Waste

by Mutes

'Modern Waste' is a blistering distillation of all that has defined Mutes' explorative take on post-punk until now. Wiry, tense verses give way to muted chamber pop and eventually blossom into a full-on, fuzzed-out, fist-pumping euphoria.

For fans of

Missing Adult

by Fine Grain

Hey there! We're a weird punk/post-punk outfit from Albany NY. Our songs have always spanned an array of genres and this new track is no different. Backing off the raw, loud songs of our past, Missing Adult is an eerily-dark laid-back ode to those that are lost and never found.

We're the Sex Cuts, four strangers from Gothenburg in Sweden. The track "The Politics of Sinking" deals with the frustration of not fitting in and feeling that something's wrong with you. A feeling of being a part of something you hate and wanting to leave but always end up coming back to it.

The Conquering

by Intervene

Three minutes of angular and anarchic energy,‘The Conquering’ feels as much like a statement of intent as it does a single release, while also acting as a testament to Intervene’s uncompromising attitude, which here feels more unfettered than ever.
