Hailing from New York, post-punk quartet Imaginary People have been hidden away in the studio these past few months preparing their sophomore album October Alice due out on April 27th. Stealing them away from the mixing desk for a short break, we asked the band to create the first in a series of curated playlists.
Settling on the theme of ‘Punch Someone In The Face’, we let the band loose on Spotify to see what they came up with. So sit back, relax, and enjoy Punch Someone In The Face by Imaginary People.

“Good burner, maybe try out that karate swing kick on your annoying neighbour!”
2. Tired Of Toeing The Line – Rocky Burnette
