Pleasures are a 4 piece skater punk/new wave band. The Mancunian pulse of dance and despair running through the reanimated corpse of punk, playing loud and lively tracks inspired by an eclectic musical footprint.
Those F****ing Snowflakes
“Great band name, perfect song title and a top tune. Energy, power, passion, commitment and a heartfelt plea for tolerance, Loving this song the more I hear it – a tune for our times” Tom Robinson – BBC 6music / Fresh on the Net
“Stop Being Dickheads to Each Other is an epic song for our times. It’s like listening to John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’, if it’d been written by morons and recorded in a garage. Needless to say, I love it!” Brash Magazine
“An energising and invigorating blast of scuzzily processed punk marrying new sounds with the old three chords and the truth doctrine to make something totally fresh but in keeping with the work of current acts. A must hear debut single that’s up there with the best I’ve heard this year and I’m looking forward to see where they go next” BBC Introducing
“It’s not my sort of thing usually, but I liked it, there’s something there” Jason Williamson – Sleaford Mods
“They do their utmost to somehow marry ‘People are People’ by Depeche Mode with the hectic and frantic post-hardcore of Fugazi The thing is it works. ‘Stop Being Dickheads To Each Other’ is a positive and uplifting blast that is probably a bit oversimplified in message but, at the same time, it’s a fairly solid message” Overblown
“Channeling a potent blend of political punk, hardcore rock and math rock” When the Horn Blows
