NOAHFINNCE weaves a spellbinding narrative in his latest music video for “SCUMBAG,” drawing inspiration from the enchanting world of Harry Potter. The alt-artist, who initially dropped the track in October, uses this magical realm to shed light on issues of transphobia and confront TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists). Evoking the nostalgia of J.K. Rowling‘s iconic book series and the subsequent film adaptations that captivated audiences in the late ’90s and early/mid-2000s, NOAHFINNCE transforms the familiar wizarding world into a canvas for his powerful message. Despite the enchantment of Harry Potter, recent statements from Rowling have shifted the narrative, prompting discussions about… Read more »

UK punkers The Menstrual Cramps have released their new single, “Body Politics,” and signed to Alcopop! Records. The band also announced headline shows in the new year, including Manchester Punk Fest, Outer Town Festival, and 2000 Trees.
