Happy Accidents Everything But The Here And Now The second full length studio album from the London trio Happy Accidents, delightful and emotive indie-punk-pop that's sure to appeal to the fans of The Front Bottoms, Martha and The Winter Passing. Exploring new territory that includes washes of synths, keys and atmospheric production courtesy of Hookworm’s Matthew “MJ” Johnson (Drenge, Doe, Martha, Honeyblood), they’re also forging ahead into new lyrical pastures that reflect the often turbulent, yet upward trajectory of their experiences as a band and in their personal lives.

DZ Deathrays Bloody Lovely The third full length album from the Australian outfit DZ Deathrays. Thrashy and energetic rock with a groovy, dance-punk edge. If you're into the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Death From Above 1979 and The Dirty Nil will dig this. Bloody Lovely is the DZ Deathrays expanded universe: the perfect amalgamation of all that has come before it, but kicking in the afterburners, and shooting into the stratosphere as we all hold on for dear life.

Give this a listen if you're into the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Fangclub and Dinosaur Pile-Up. 2017 has been a big year for TIGERCUB, and after emerging triumphant with a huge debut album sending ricochets around the rock world, we’re doing something really special, fresh from packing out Dingwalls, touring with PABH and Royal Blood and playing all the best festivals. Releasing a statement EP, Evolve or Die, this is a manifesto of intent & stylistic pivot for a band determined to build, to transform, to cement their reputation as one of the most innovative, powerful and relevant bands in the UK.

Happy Accidents You Might Be Right Debut album from London indie-punk three-piece Happy Accidents. Fans of Martha and The Fronty Bottoms you need to check these guys out! With sugar-coated choruses and ‘four to the floor’ disco drums, the band’s sonic urgency creates the kind of earworms that will be rattling round your head for months to come – fusing their deep-seated love of 90s punk and indie, whilst still managing to sound as fresh as any of their contemporaries. Quickly making a name for themselves in DIY punk circles, they’ve shared stages with the likes of The Front Bottoms, Martha, Muncie Girls, and countless others… This will be your album of the summer!
