PROVING that bdrmm are no crazy one-off for the East Yorkshire music scene, and that it just might be a nascent hotbed of BIG and swoonsome and just knock-the-stuffing guitar tunesmithery, Hull’s Low Hummer have shared the deeply midwinter video for their new single “Never Enough”. And what a tune it is; one foot in …

Not content with blowing us away with their previous releases The Real Thing and Picture Bliss, Hull quintet Low Hummer have released their new single ‘Take Arms’ on Leeds’ Dance To The Radio records.  While the band have long tackled themes of social isolation, manipulation and misinformation, ‘Take Arms’ lands on an day where the …

HULL’S Fever usher in the end of the summer with a guitar pop choon soaring for the sky in a simple plea for “Honesty”. It’s proper sweet. Have a listen below.

Hull grunge trio Bloodhound unite forces with the nightmarish psychedelia of Brooders to bring us their latest single ‘FRSTRTD’. Expansive and menacing, ‘FRSTRTD’ immerses itself in a sludge of bone-grinding guitar riffs and tortured vocals; the result is commanding and visceral. The collaborators climb from a deep-set ennui, drumming up momentum, before unleashing a hellfire …

MY PLEASURE is from Hull, UK and describes his music as “almost pop”. Mostly Happy is the title of his second album, out Friday 1st June. My Pleasure says of the single: “Fluorescent Jacket is a ode to the feeling you get when you put on any kind of uniform, and instantly become part of …

Hull’s inimitable La Bête Blooms are back with a blistering new single and video ‘Take Arms’. This is a rousing punky shouty call for action in the muscular power pop/punk style of that exemplifies the band – fuzzy. slightly anarchic and full of wry humour: [youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDRBSwVr7lw] Blasting aside stereotypes, commiserating with the general state of …
