Every year to celebrate our birthday, we curate a free compilation album which showcases some of our favourite artists from the last year. We hope you enjoy this year’s selection! Download the album in full for free from our Bandcamp. Here’s a peek at the track from Irked…

Emerging 18 months back as something of a local supergroup (with members of Blöm, Weekend Faithful, Cave Sons and plenty more), Irked finally have the studio work to augment their formidable live reputation. A perennial standout from those shows, Move follows in the tradition of everyone from Dead Kennedys to Bikini Kill and Dan Sartain, marrying unifying anti-establishment sentiment with surging, instinctive punk thrills.

“Move is about navigating disingenuous people, inflated egos and unwanted attention in ‘the workplace’.” They say. “The frustrations and irritations of striking the work/life balance, people pleasing and being caught in the capitalist chokehold – a relatable irritation for many people!”
