//SIGNAL BOOST// Are you ready to brood? Australian label Burning Rose has been on an undefeated hot streak for the last year, releasing record after record of the best, moodiest, classically-oriented post punk.

YBN Nahmir…. He’s a suave 17 year old from Birmingham that just MIGHT…dare I say it…go viral?!?!?!!??! That’s the goal of most teens these days, right? Especially teens who are rappers. In any case, it’s all here: a simple head-bobbing instrumental, flow for days, effortless shit. Show More Summary
