Fearless

The Repressions recently traveled to Florida, stood in the ocean, ate amazing vegan food in four different cities, played a few songs at Dada in DelRey, and found this very fine street art in Wynwood, Miami.

Fear is a wild instinctual safeguard, protector and burden depending on the day… We are learning to be okay with it.

Allow – New live Video

What can you do with the feeling when you know there is something you wanted but can never have? The deep, hard things, that seem unjust… a sense of loss for what cannot be… Can you bury or set free desire?

Allow- live acoustic performance at The Dolphin in Port Washington NY 1/31/20

Folk Punk Show! 1/16

Folk-punk is a term that we hear often to describe the band, and we say that makes as much sense as all of the the genres we jump to. We’ll be playing with cool cats Sam Rasiotis and JW Farrell next week, who both bring the noise and passion, and so The Repressions will be dedicating this set to the faster, rambunctious songs. Jump with us!

New Year, New Bright Lights Video

Last year Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights.  They decided to make this a tradition, and this year the lyrics are on screen. Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see.

Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here.
