Today’s new music spotlight is on Comforts.
Line-up: Samuel Dembowicz (vocals/guitar), Simon Metcalfe (vocals/guitar), Alfie Webber (vocals/drums) and Jamie Thomas (bass)
About: Comforts are a new four-piece band from Brighton, playing current indie-pop with a classic twist of amped-up guitars and catchy choruses.
Bringing to mind the bands of the new-wave post-punk movement crossed with a boy-girl lyricism, Comforts communicate and explore the taboo surrounding romance through the act of everyday life.
Following two sold-out shows at Brighton’s Rialto Theatre, the band dropped their second release and latest single ‘Haircut’; a snappy crack at the red flags and hurdles that come with relationships. Laden with wavering guitars and hooky pop harmonies throughout, the indie-pop outfit aim to keep the south coast drawn with plans to release more music before the new year.
With local radio play from BBC Introducing and plenty of gigs on the horizon, the band take sight of a very exciting year yet to come.
What Hidden Herd say: Comforts are cooking up indie-pop bangers like there’s no tomorrow. Hot on the heels of their doo-wop-tinged debut single, the Brighton-based quartet’s latest is a breezy summer jam that marks them as a band on the brink of bigger things. Wrap your ears around ‘Haircut’ below.
