Welcome to the ninth annual NARC. Compilation Album, curated to celebrate our birthday but also to shine a light on some of the amazing local acts we’ve come across. Head over to our Bandcamp site to download your free copy of the album featuring 17 tracks which veer from quirky alt. folk, riotous blues, aggressive rock, disco pop and plenty more besides. You’re welcome.

There’s certainly more than a touch of the quirky in PDM’s output, epitomised in the super-jubilant When Your Mother Goes Home. With a toe-tapping beat, an earworm of a guitar hook and a seriously infectious vocal melody, the track is a perfect slice of off-kilter indie pop that’s guaranteed to remain in your brain for days. There’s a highly relatable concept behind the track though, making it more than just a breezy ditty. It focuses on the problems faced by a blossoming relationship from the in-laws (reflected in the Dragon’s Den-style music video which sees mothers judging their childrens’ potential suitors). Alix sums up its effect perfectly: “Steering-wheel-tappers and office head-nodders take note!”
