If you’re a fan of Wild Beasts, check out these young college-going Corkonians Hush War Cry. The name sounds like some heavy metal rallying call but the music is delicate, nuanced and oh so sweet. There’s an impressive accomplished sound happening here from such a young band. I love how the “backs to the wall” line reminds me a bit of the melody of Kate Bush’s ‘Hounds Of Love’.
During the week I got talking about the constant churnover of new bands and how it’s hard to give a band space to develop these days. Hush War Cry sound so fully formed, they are hard to ignore.
There’s a debut EP called Apparitions coming in December. ‘Lily is taken from that (downloadable here) and there are two more songs on Breaking Tunes. They play HWCH on October 8th in The Mercantile at 8.30pm.
