Rocket Ship Chaser - Dead End Street     Rock, Pop, Punk, Rock 20/03/2019
Our music's goal is for people to feel empathized with, comfortable with their flaws, confident in themselves and above all: Like they belong.
Dead End Street is about my childhood suburb. After growing up there what I realized a was I wasn't getting the exposure to positivity that I needed to take myself further in life. I wasn't seeing success happen in those around me, so it was hard to envision myself being successful in any way. So I learned from it instead.
