As we celebrate our 15th birthday this month, we’re continuing our tradition of giving you, dear Constant Readers, a very special gift in the form of our annual Compilation Albumavailable to download via our Bandcamp page for free!

Here, we focus on the track contributed by Pave The Jungle

Ants serves as a perfect introduction to Newcastle alt. rock quartet Pave The Jungle; bursting with barely contained energy and claustrophobic chaos, its siren wail guitars and weighty percussion invite repeated listens. The song is inspired by short story Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes, which deals with themes surrounding the treatment of intellectually challenged people, as guitarist and vocalist Rachael Whittle explains. “Musically I wanted this song to reflect the chaotic and unpredictable nature of life. This is why the chorus is the only repeated section of the song. I wanted it to be quite progressive.”
