Hear tracks from synth-pop indie band Mega Emotion:
An epic synth-pop banger that builds and builds. The chorus is a disappointed question to a lover (‘that’s all you’ve got?’), and an angry admonishment of all those in power who have let us down as a nation.

It’s forever remembering the ghosts of a moment and the warmth of a smile. It’s a Chvrches-esque synth-pop uplifting track that hopes for more…
