HYMNS is an alternative rock band formed around the songwriting of Oliver Hooper (guitar and vocals), with Giorgio Compagnone (bass and keys) Filippo Ferazzoli (guitar), and Amy Chapman (drums, percussion, backing vocals).
Drawing heavily from the post-punk era, HYMNS creates epic and ethereal songs that enlighten and energize. Baritone vocals combined with hooky guitar riffs provide the foundation for music with melody and honest songwriting at its heart.
On their debut EP 'London', the songs come from a place of personal observation, with music based on infectious guitar hooks and driving bass lines. The next few single releases saw the band focus on a more cinematic sound. ‘Let’s Take A Ride’ features dramatic strings, melodic guitar lines, and baritone vocals that all come together to create a piece of apocalyptic psychedelia. The single that followed combined guitar and dark synths to deliver a brooding alternative rock cover of Olive’s 90’s dance classic, ‘You’re Not Alone’.
Their forthcoming 4 track EP release 'Reset' sees the band delve deeper into their signature atmospheric sound, broadening the musical palette with elements reminiscent of Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western soundtracks and Black Sabbath's heavy guitar riffage. Mainstay favorites of the band, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, and Depeche Mode also find a place in their musical melting pot.
Following the forthcoming single release of 'Reset' the eponymous EP will follow on the 30th April!
