The coffee is brewing, the music is playing.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: Is it indie? Is it rock? Is it punk? When it comes to Youth Killed It, the answer is always yes.

What: Make summer last just a little bit longer and get your head right with “Headbutt”.

Why: Youth Killed It isn’t in the business of ska but there’s something about their latest track that calls back to the fun (and madness) of a Reel Big Fish track.

“The song was written about toxic masculinity and how males are pressured into feeling like they always have to “one-up” each other. In the video, we wanted to portray different types of males and how sometimes you don’t realise just how toxic your actions can come across to other people. It’s time to be more socially aware and understand that people love the real you, not someone you think you need to be. Life’s not a competition it’s a path that we all take together so let’s help not hurt each other along the way.” – Youth Killed It

Who: DIY babe and indie queen, She Makes War.

What: The quirky new video for “Devastate Me”.

Why: We’re digging the uncensored personality and general cool-ness She Makes War shows in every second of “Devastate Me”.

“I wanted to make something bouncy and fun, an antidote to the self-indulgent testosterone-fuelled ‘rock’ videos of the past and present. Something that doesn’t take itself so seriously but can still accentuate a killer riff… So here it is. I can rock out without my cock out. My balls are nowhere near the wall. Let’s celebrate our individuality, let’s have some fun.” – Laura Kidd, frontwoman of She Makes War
