Divus Julius presents: bdrmm

bdrmm are a four-piece band based in Hull and Leeds. Musically, there are nods to The Cure, Deerhunter and DIIV, while the band references RIDE and Radiohead. There are also echoes of krautrock and post-punk, from The Chameleons to Protomartyr, plus the proto-shoegaze of the Pale Saints.

Three years on since their 2020 debut LP ‘Bedroom’, Hull shoegazers bdrmm have announced that their new album ‘I Don’t Know’ will be out on 30th June from their new label home of Mogwai’s Rock Action.

Hit of The Week: Girl Ray “Everybody’s Saying That.”

The last LP from Girl Ray — one of the Best New Bands Of 2017 — was 2019’s Girl. We haven’t heard much from the London trio since then besides the one-off “Give Me Your Love” and a cover of “Murder On The Dancefloor.” Now, Girl Ray are sharing their first new music since 2021 — quite exciting — in the form of an inspired-disco song called “Everybody’s Saying That.”

Music by Bergman: The Delgados

In 2005, The Delgados got fed up with being a band more respected than listened to and decided to put an end to a decade of bittersweet indie, of lyrical devastation, melodic preciosity and guitars that fought against angels. We understood the decision, but it hurt us to be left without the woven vocals of Emma Pollock and Alun Woodward, without those songs that were both painful and comforting. Fortunately for us, the quartet has decided to make a comeback and begin to reap the rewards of a cult following that has now put them where they deserve to be, at the top of the Glasgow music community.

Best Covers: London Grammar ‘Wicked Game’

London Grammar can knock out the original power ballad, and, as you’ll see here, nail the ’90s slow-burning love song. The UK trio tackled Chris Isaak’s hit “Wicked Game”. Between their haunting, cavernous sound and Hannah Reid’s beautifully anguished vocals the band manages to both cover the original perfectly and reinvent it at the same time.

Introducing…Febueder

Avant-indie duo Febueder bless us with new release ‘Dire Science’, the latest outing into the weird and wonderful world of the band.

The experienced and experimental twosome have unveiled some of the most compelling indie floating around the stratosphere in the last few years, with tracks like ‘Paramount Tether’ and ‘Morning Yawn’ emitting buzz from underground and industry circles alike. ‘Dire Science’ sees the band re-emerge after a quiet 2022, exploring and progressing their sound to unwavering heights.

The muses of La Musa: Cat Clyde

Since Cat Clyde’s debut in 2017, she’s been able to carve out a space for herself in the music industry. Her last fully-fledged offering was Hunter’s Trance, released in 2019, but she’s kept herself on it and occupied since then. Crafting up “Good Bones”, an acoustic reimagining of Hunter’s Trance and her debut album Ivory Castanets, she then went on to collaborate with country singer-songwriter

Ahead of Cat Clyde’s forthcoming album Down Rounder, the young indie folk artist has unleashed “Papa Took My Totems” .
