Pebbledash’s rough exterior on full show once more.

In this exclusive interview with, we dive into the heart-pounding world of “Pebbledash” and their electrifying new song, “No Worse.” The band’s members open up about the song’s origins, which were fuelled by a need to vent frustrations, both personal and societal, and to create a captivating blend of punk and shoegaze. With lyrics that serve as a monologue of discontent and self-reflection, “No Worse” becomes an anthem of defiance and self-assurance.

The title, inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins, encapsulates a transformation of disillusionment into empowerment. Join us as we explore the evolution of this dynamic song and its enduring impact on the band’s live performances, where it retains its punk core while embracing experimentation. This is a revealing conversation with Pebbledash, offering unique insights into their creative process and their bold approach to music

The song began as we wanted to write something with an attitude that would have a heart-racing chorus and boomy motif throughout. It was important to us to let out some frustration that comes along with songwriting and this tune helped with that and since has opened the door for some of the songs we now play live.

In many ways, it’s catharsis comes in the pairing back and somewhat rawness of the song, although we love shoegaze and there is elements of that within the song with guitar effects etc the punkyness of it was something that really excites us. The staccato rhythm guitar riff came first using a small room reverb which the boomy drums easily followed which explode into the main riff.

The verse are quick sonic youth and ramone inspired with the lead guitar and some experimental guitar parts laced throughout the track especially at the beginning solo and outro with loads of self oscillating delays. Lyrically we discuss frustration with ourselves aswell as society and the music business through an almost monologue of hate and disgust which in the second verse reverts onto one’s self and takes on an air of reverence instead almost like saying it’s ok to be angry and to be a problem. The title no worse comes from the Gerard Manley Hopkins poems no worst there is none in which he speaks of his disillusionment and depression and we wanted to take this and instead of being morbid or morose make it identifying and self assured. Since then it has changed somewhat live to become more experimental but retains its somewhat punk core
