Petrol Girls’ on the road playlist
Sometimes music just sounds better when it’s blasted full volume at 70 miles an hour down the M1, watching fields, trees and grubby service stations speed past the window. Petrol Girls’ Ren Aldridge runs through her current on the road faves.

G.L.O.S.S - Outcast Stomp

My favourite song by the only band I've ever cried over breaking up. Everything hardcore should be. 

RVIVR - Rainspell
Holding your best mate’s hand and screaming the opening lyrics to this song is the greatest feeling in the world. 

War on Women - Second Wave Goodbye
THAT RIFF. Also the best band to watch live, Shawna is totally wild.  

Screaming Toenail - White Saviour 
To me, this band is the most important in the DIY London music scene, I have learnt so much from listening to their EP. Plus they are fantastic live. 

Warpaint - Disco // Very - Keep It Healthy
The percussion sound at roughly 2.50!! Sitting in the van, staring out the window, listening to this record… perfect. 

James Choice and the Bad Decisions - You've Got A Fiend 
I think Poodle is one of the greatest lyricists ever, and this EP is one I always come back to and can't recommend enough to anyone who suffers from depression. 

Perkie - Fool
Not only is she an incredible singer and songwriter but also one of my closest friends. We tour together loads! This track features harmonies from another of our best friends Micky Dey (used to drum for us, plays in James Choice and brilliant solo artist).

Shopping - Take It Outside
Rachel Aggs is such an inspiring guitarist. And this song has a dance routine music video!

Kate Tempest - Europe is Lost
She's literally a prophet. She makes huge concepts like borders and nationalism directly relatable to you as an individual - that is so politically powerful. I am so excited to go see the 'Let Them Eat Chaos' tour.  

Fleetwood Mac - Seven Wonders 
I don't need to justify this decision.

(It looks like Screaming Toenail aren't on Spotify, but you can listen to 'White Saviour' here.)

Give all this a try

The Murder Capital: More is less

The Murder Capital: More is less

The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.
Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
