UK Pop Punks Next Year Sign with Standby Records

The band says, “We feel our new single Dopamine is where we’ve really found our sound. It merges our mixed influences, has riffs, solid drumming, catchy vocal melodies and harmonies.
The song is about modern technology and self-inflicted depression and anxiety from people comparing the “behind the scenes” of their lives with the “highlight reel” of social media influencers and trying to lead fake lives. This ties in with the music video, showing how fake lives have been portrayed throughout the years. And also a bunch of clips of us playing live and recording the EP ‘Waterfalls’ which the track is taken from”
The 4-piece hails from Leicester, UK and formed in October 2017. Since then, they have released their DIY debut EP ‘Resolutions,’ played over 100 shows across the UK, including 2 tours, festivals and supported artists such as Merge, Skarlett Riot Fahran, The Soapgirls, TrueHeights, Rare Americans and more.
