HUSH! GIGS AT CLUB FANDANGO
Hush! are a British dream pop/shoegaze band from Bridport, Dorset currently based in London formed in 2011. The band's sound isn’t far from the likes of The Durutti Column, The Cure, New Order, The Cocteau Twins, Echo and the Bunnymen, Twin Shadow & Beach House... there’s grand & atmospheric shoegaze texture fastened to a pumping rhythm section of analog drum machines and synthesizers. H U S H ! have an undeniable 80's influence running through the root of their material but incorporate an ethereal, contemporary and melancholic approach to their song writing which unravels into a majestic compilation of rhythm and melody. H U S H ! have a very deep pop mentality and simmering brightness, coloured by dark and brooding lyrics. "There’s Something In The Stars Tonight" was the first song the band released free online, and it received glowing endorsements from across the globe, gaining extensive radio airplay. The second single released free online titled 'Cruel' was voted as MPFree of the day on the Lauren Laverne BBC6Music show where it was also played, numerous BBC Introducing plays to their name, and heavy exposure from blogs worldwide.
