South London based band Hidden Charms return with their intoxicating new single ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’, and new EP Harder From Here released 28th October via Deltasonic Records.
Mounting a strong case for the title of UK’s most exciting guitar band, the four-piece carefully hint at the psych-tinged, effervescent indie rock of their previous releases, but ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’ is the sound of a band moving forward. Delivering propulsive, urgent rock n’ roll both on record and in their fierce live performances, the quartet have carved out something totally unique – the secret of which lies in their powerful bond as musicians, their youthful energy, and their tireless search for new ways to create the music they love.
Hidden Charms have gained a fierce reputation for their live shows with support slots for Benjamin Booker, Hanni El Khatib, X Ambassadors and YAK over the last 18 months alongside a co-headine tour with The Vryll Society. Having received widespread airplay from the likes of Zane Lowe (Beats 1), Annie Mac (Radio 1) and Huw Stephens (Radio 1), the new single looks set to propel them even further into the limelight.
Coming up this week in Birmingham; on Wednesday we have sassy, high energy, pop rock duo Rews at The Flapper, singer-songwriter come vlogger Bry at Mama Roux’s, and Northern five-piece Little Comets at O2 Institute. Thursday sees South London four-piece Hidden Charms bring their psych-tinged, effervescent indie rock to the Hare & Hounds. Check out the full listings below:
REWS are the sassy, high energy, pop rock duo consisting of songstress Shauna Tohill and beat-maker Collette Williams. Together they are creating a genuine buzz on the UK/Irish music scene following the release of their four recent singles. They were Huw Stephens‘ “Tip Of The Week” on BBCRadio 1 with their new single ‘Miss You In The Dark’, played on BBCRadio 6Music with Tom Robinson, as well as all 38 BBC Introducing shows. Support comes from raucous and melodic four-piece Mutt, and Birmingham band Ember Weir.
Setting up a YouTube channel (BriBryontour) to let family and friends know how he was getting on in his travels, one late night abroad he uploaded a video of himself playing one of his own songs and everything changed. Hundreds, then thousands, then hundreds of thousands of new subscribers tuned in to hear his music. Forging a very real connection with his followers through personalised videos, question and answer web chats and specially curated online sessions, his confidence grew and his repertoire expanded. Bry landed the sole support of 21 Pilots’ sold out European tour last year. Support comes from vlogger Tessa Violet and singer-songwriter Danny Gruff.
Little Comets, the five-piece from the North East of England, are soon to release their fourth album WORHEAD on The Smallest Label, the follow up to 2015’s Hope Is A State of Mind. WORHEAD is the most brutally honest Little Comets album to date – acerbic, withering and uncomplimentary about the state of our time; yet woven together with great beauty and care, drenched in positive melody and the percussive thrust of an innocent mind. Support comes from the Essex quintet Eliza And The Bear.
