Welcome to our latest series of articles in collaboration with thnksfrthrvw, a Kent based blog/zine. We have teamed up with them to bring forward 5 acts each from our respective home counties. The first article saw Kent based Blunderpuss tickle our eardrums with their garage rock sounds. This week we are bringing forward one of Cornwall’s most notorious acts Hypophora, whom are renowned for their energetic, genre bending music.
The female fronted alt-rock outfit formed out of Cornwall’s only city but it wasn’t long before they were bashing on the doors of some of Europe’s biggest cities. It has been a whirlwind of a year for the band, seeing them support bands such as Arcane Roots, Black Peaks and even joining Toska on tour. They also released their debut album ‘Douse’ via Easy Action/Zen Ten records which received high praise from a variety of publications.
It is no surprise that success has found them though, their sound is an infectious barrage funk infused rock with elements of prog-rock. Not to mention they are one of the hardest working bands in the county. This is just the beginning for Hypophora and I cannot wait to see what else they achieve.
