Propulsive, disco-infused synth-pop – an album heavy on euphoria, built atop crisp interplaying percussion & acid-flecked grooves.
This is one heck of a super-group featuring members of Hookworms, Yard Act, Cowtown, Virginia Wing, Drahla & more!! As Holodrum, this is the seven-piece’s debut album, but the interlocking grooves & hot headiness of their repeato-rock-via-CBGBs dopamine hits have in one way or other been fermenting for years.
The abrupt dissolution of Hookworms in late 2018 left a super massive black hole in our lives. Ultimately, the core of this talented septet comes from Sam Shjipstone & his former Hookworms bandmates Matthew Benn (synth/bass/production), Jonathan Nash (drums) & Jonathan Wilkinson (guitar), so you can imagine our excitement at hearing about this new project. Joining them are Emily Garner (vocals), Christopher Duffin (sax/synth) & Steve Nuttall (percussion). They’ve shared bands, mixed each other’s records, promoted live shows and made music videos together in and around Leeds.
‘Holodrum‘ crackles with the energy of the dancefloor - Tight drum claps, beaming saxophone skronk, strutting disco, ping pong synths, squelchy frequencies & cavernous reverb – underpinned at all times by a relentlessly propulsive rhythm section.
