Stupidly excited to announce this one, our 3rd release from Exeter’s Muncie Girls this time sharing a 12” with London darlings Great Cynics!

Both bands offer up 3 new tracks recorded earlier this year at Middle Farm Studios in Devon. Seriously catchy indie punk vibes all round with some definite progression from the bands’ previous efforts.

Can’t wait for you all to hear it, there will be tracks popping up to stream online in the coming months.


1. Everyday
2. The Teacher
3. The Real You

1. Whatever You Want
2. Scarier Area
3. Dirt In My Book Bag

This is happening!!!

Our gal Iona developed some sweet snaps from when we went to the States last month. These few are from the Bambi Motel, where we stayed in Gainesville, Florida feat. lovers Nona and Luther

Thanks to everyone at No Idea Records (especially Tony Weinbender and Sarah Goodwin) for having us! 

Love, good charlotte x
