We write, engineer, record & master all our music. We also release it via our own label 'Planet Road Records'.
You can buy/listen to our work below or buy it directly from us at concerts.
If your new to our music you will find each album is it's own thing to explore. Debut Album 'Rebel Heart Club' is an acoustic album that was written directly after the election of Trump and the Brexit referendum. Follow up 'B Side Fantasy' remains song based although it is also more sonically experimental with the added use of beats and synth's. Our third album 'Gravitate' showcases our new 'Electro Alt Hop' sound that you can hear in concerts today.
Enjoy the listening! If you like the music remember you can help us out by sharing it around. All the music players have a share option.
In August 2020 we set up a label with which to independently release our music.
Our aim is for it to be an active alternative to commercial streaming services and provide a creative base for sonic resistance & exploration in the art of song.
It is also intrinsically linked to our musical graphic novel project.

I embrace the anarchy of my soul
& leave behind the sad blossom of the world
From broken shadows and vanquished dreams
I step into the undertow of things...

"You don't know it but in fact you are a sleeper agent operating far into enemy territory, in the heart of the machine. You were hypnotized to forget about your real purpose so as to better establish a cover identity. Your secret mission is to bring down the machine and establish abundant earth community. This is your signal to become operational." - Jason Hine

The Revolution will not be Televised (21st Century Update/Edit) By Kid Hyena. This is a rewrite & new mix of a song by one of our favourite artists 'Gil Scott Heron'. The only way we thought it was truly possible to do the song justice was to re write the lyrics to be totally relevant to the 21st century. Produced by Kid Hyena at Songs of Disquiet Studios.
