Hyde & Beast play shows in Nottingham and Bristol this November

Hyde & Beast release the single ‘You Will Be Lonely’ on 14 November

Hyde & Beast release the single ‘You Will Be Lonely’ on 14 November through Tail Feather Records, the second single to be taken from their joyfully acclaimed debut album Slow Down, released in August. The pair will embark on a UK tour in November with a full band, calling at London’s Monto Water Rats on the 16th.

The country-tinged ‘You Will Be Lonely’ is effortlessly catchy, coming off like a British take on a distinctively American bluegrass sound. With its quick guitar licks and jaunty harmonies, the music is upbeat but as is the case with most country songs, the lyrics are dark; “You keep on knocking but you can’t come in, No one’s ever going to let you in… You will be lonely, you will be lonely…”

‘Hyde & Beast are two drummers from the North East, Dave Hyde (Hyde) from Futureheads and Neil Bassett (Beast) from Golden Virgins. Together they have made a magnificent record by accident, with Hyde on vocals and both Hyde & Beast writing, recording, producing and mixing the album themselves, resulting in a very special project born out of a labour of love and a wonderful detour from the pair’s usual musical output.

A sprawling, gentle psychedelic meander, Slow Down harks back to a more experimental approach to songwriting, with some of the songs seemingly writing themselves as they recorded live in the studio. Inspired by the music Hyde & Beast love listening to, Slow Down recalls a golden age of mainstream pop meeting the sonic adventurism and kaleidoscopic music from the late 60s and early 70s, with more than a nod to the greats of that era Captain Beefheart, Velvet Underground and T Rex.

Live, Hyde & Beast become a six strong line up with familiar faces from the North East music scene joining them for their excursions. Despite only having played together for a few months, the band are tight as a drum on stage. Expect the unexpected as they extend the experimental feel of the album on to the stage.
