Today, our new music spotlight is on Short People

Location: Brighton

Line-up: Rich Fownes (vocals/guitar), Sam Morris (vocals/ acoustic guitar), Tom Nichols (Bass) and RV Monroe (Piano) William Jack Parker (Drums)

About: We were all having independent and severe breakdowns, so decided to make one severe band. We bond over old music that isn’t very fuckin’ hip, so stay true to those ethics, motifs & major chords. We are so, so brave.

What Hidden Herd say: Short People’s eruptive debut single ‘You Know I’m Weird’ thrives on the unexpected; their somewhat-nostalgic sound gives over to loud, brazen expressionism, making them one of the South coast’s most interesting exports of the moment. Watch this space.

For fans of: The Stooges, Randy Newman
