Blending elements of indie electronica and jank jazz, the South-London collective fronted by Lincolnshire-born Will Hooson reflect a raw, melancholic and ultimately brilliant soundscape. After dropping their self-titled EP in January 2018, a set of lineup changes has signalled a switch in sound; ready for a 2019 release.
Drawing influences from the likes of Elliot Smith and Chet Faker, Hooson’s signature chorus tone is as dreamy as it is cryptic. Combining modulated effects and fragmented time signatures, the synthesis of a multi-tracked instrumental allows the haunting almost naked vocals to pierce through the mix, retaining a strong resonance as it dances with reverb tails; to put it short, they’re f***ing sick. Following graduation from Westminster University the plan is simple, craft the sound, play the gig, the good old fashioned way. A year on since the EP and the group are moving forward with fresh content, but not before a show at The Waiting Room on August 8th alongside Somedays. It’s safe to say the music scene is crying out for originality and these lot have it in spades.
