Get To Know One Of The Most Exciting DIY Labels To Come Out Of London
By Kieran Webber
The label is a home for “indie fuzz pop and garage sounds with the ethos of beers, burgers, whiskey, flannel, chucks, and docs…… oh and rock n’ roll.”
Pretty much all the best things in life in one place they already have an impressive roster of bands on their label which are featured in their Birth Compilation consisting of:
VIRGIN KIDS are a three piece garage band from London, with psych and post-punk influences. For fans of The Clean, Ty Segall and Jay Reatard – They have spent the last 6 months playing regular shows in London including supports for Dirty Fences, White Mystery, The Coathangers and Surf City. They recorded their soon to be released debut album Greasewheel in May 2015 with Rick James and Anthony Nemet.
Listen to what is probably our favorite song on the Compilation:
Inspired by The Beatles and The Breeders comes a straight down the line guitar buzz. They have been playing regular shows in London.
House Plants are an exciting new four-piece, hailing from South London. Writing indie pop hits with hooks and lyrics about aeroplanes, fictional creatures, and fish. The band’s “critter pop” sound has already drawn comparisons to the likes of Happyness, Beach Baby, My Bloody Valentine, and Yuck.
London four-piece Strange Ways is a new breed. Their raw, uncompromising take on indie needs to not only be heard but seen, as they have played some mesmerizing shows in London since being born. They will be releasing a single later on in the year on the indie label Broken Internet Records.
Honey are from South London and have been writing playing as a band for the past 2 years. Their Killer Saints EP and subsequent singles “Why Can’t I Get Hurt?” and “Blonde Summer” showcase the outfit’s penchant for jangley guitar pop with Johnny Marr-esque interweaving guitar lines. The band (whose name was originally inspired by Lenny Bruce’s stripper wife Honey Harlow) sees them uniting their musical influences from 80s British indie, like The Smiths, The Cure and Slowdive as well as 90s American college rock, like Pavement, Dinosaur Jr and Elliott Smith.
