The world of math rock is going through a golden age of late and it seems more and more talented groups are appearing. Lately artists such as Orchards have been brewing a storm in their hometown of Brighton, bringing their bouncy, creative math rock to eager crowds.

Another band that has sprung into our sphere recently is the Falmouth based Hops, whom we first experienced live in Jacob’s ladder and again in Fives. Their intriguing sound drew us in and since then we have been eager to hear more. Each member of the band are masters in their art, boasting a huge and inventive sound. It’s hard not to be spellbound by the honey covered vocals of Lilly Shickle and sharp guitar play from Will Andrew.

We are incredibly proud to announce that we are premiering their first single ‘Cheap Wine’, a jangly math rock belter that infuses elements of alt-rock. The charming vocals compliment the intricate guitar play and solid rhythm section.
