Blisters... sees the posi-punk heroes of Pity Me, displaying their knack for well-crafted pop that combines personal politics, fun, earnestness, and difficult emotions.

The band is comprised of J. Cairns (guitar), Daniel Ellis (guitar), Naomi Griffin (bass), and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums). All four members sing and write the songs. Daniel and Nathan also play in Onsind, while Naomi also plays in No Ditching.

Their queer and feminist stance is very much of the moment, but the sound is wilfully lodged in 'nineties pop-punk, which, combined with a playful energy and optimism, can't shake a clinging indie-disco nostalgia. There is, though, an indie-pop englishness, that places them alongside the likes of Milky Wimpshake and Billy Bragg, in addition to the more obvious american comparisons.
