Salem – ‘Destroy Me’ [2020]

“This EP came out during lockdown and I was absolutely obsessed with it. I remember sending it to all of my friends and getting everyone to listen to it and it made me get back in touch with a few that I’d lost contact with during the pandemic. I love going to see live music, and the first gig that I got to go to when restrictions started to lift was to see this band – me and my friends sang extra loud on this song.”

Crywank – ‘Song for a Guilty Sadist’ [2015]

“I got heavily into Crywank throughout lockdown and found their honesty really helped me approach my own self reflection and discovery with candidness. This song stood out to me with its themes of feeling as though who you are isn’t enough, and the idea of trying to adapt to fit someone else’s desires but falling short”
