No Murder No Moustache fuses anti-establishment punk rock with celtic acoustic sounds. On one hand you can expect songs about bad governments, anti-facism, coming together to fight injustice, mental health struggles, people who died too young, and retrospective terrible life decisions.
This is broken up by songs about video games, being intimated by teenagers at the skate park, drinking beer, and trying not to be a poser.
