The Moon Kids make electrifying pop that sounds like fireworks and neon lights and fairground thrills. “The aim is to make music that’ll make your heart beat a little faster,” says frontman David Barr.

The Moon Kids are shooting for the stars – and they want you to come along for the ride.
The Aches - Your Broken Hand EP
The Aches are a Chicago/Milwaukee area indie rock band formed by husband and wife duo Colin and Christiana Flanigan. Christiana calls their music rage-folk. They write very honest lyrics.

Doctrin - Take Me
Dolly Denko is a Melbourne born, soon-to-be Los Angeles based, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and creator of Doctrin. Conceiving the project quite literally from life, death, love and hate amidst a time of existential crisis; Doctrin was unbearably venerable before it was comfortably naked. Bringing what Dolly calls ‘Alternative Something’ to the sonic landscape, in a live setting she’s fusing the organic with technology, wielding a guitar and a laptop. Dolly is a one-woman band with a sound too big and far too dramatic to stay in your small local bar for long, her eyes are set on the grand arena.
