Her’s

  • Her’s – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton – 19th October 2018

    Her’s - Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton - 19th October 2018 Her’s – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton – 19th October 2018 On the current live music scene, there’s not a single band that comes close to Liverpudlian duo Her’s. Awful grammar aside, no one can quite match the sheer entertainment, intense laughter, and the absolute joy of their dream-pop. The definitive answer to the popular meme “name a better duo, I’ll wait” and the musical equivalent of the brain releasing serotonin, Her’s are simply a delight in a live setting. Outrageously tight (despite frequent sound issues) and with the best chemistry in a band you’re ever likely to see, Her’s are a musical marvel.
  • Her’s – Interview 2018

    Her’s – Interview 2018 What's in a name? It's the cause of much consternation amongst those who have to carry the burden, the weight of it. Should it be meaningful, and relevant to the sound, or perhaps it should have no obvious ties? Maybe it just sounds good, and looks just fine in the eyes and ears of the beholder. Whatever the case may be, all bands have to have a name, and over the years I've spoken to countless acts who hate what they are called, but are burdened with it for ever. Not so with Her's who, although completely aware that the apostrophe is “massively incorrect", sound quite content with the ambiguity of it.
  • Her's - Invitation To Her's

    Her's - Invitation To Her's Her's - Invitation To Her's A duo forged somewhere between Barrow and Norway via Liverpool, Her’s are a band that seem to exist in a parallel dimension. They live in a world that is nearly, but not quite, the same as ours. Their eccentric, off-kilter songs have been catching the eye for a few years now, and at last a debut album that captures all of their fun and magic has arrived. Buckle up and accept the invitation.
  • Her's release second track off highly-anticipated new album

    Her's release second track off highly-anticipated new album Fresh off of announcing their debut album Invitation to Her’s, out 24th August, and their stunning Alternative Escape show at St Mary's Church, Liverpool-based duo Her’s, aka Audun Laading and Stephen Fitzpatrick, have offered us more fruits from the album in the form of jangly 80s electro-pop track 'Low Beam'.
  • The Great Escape Festival – 2018

    The Great Escape Festival – 2018 The Great Escape Festival – 2018 To paraphrase that Marmite film classic, the streets were alive with the sound of music! Over three long days and nights, Brighton did truly come alive as The Great Escape juggernaut rolled into town for its 13th edition. The festival for new music saw over 500 acts playing in 40-odd venues, representing countries from all around the globe. If you add in the The Alternative Great Escape, and the plethora of events and pop-up performances arranged off the back of TGE and AGE, you’re looking at closer to 1,000 acts in 80-odd venues. Yes, it was mad, but glorious. Helped along by some beautiful mid-May sunshine, somehow within all the chaos, Brightonsfinest were out in force, documenting, commenting, and enjoying what we like to do best. Watch live...
  • The Alternative Escape announces line-up

    The Alternative Escape announces line-up The Alternative Escape is to The Great Escape what the Brighton Fringe is to the Brighton Festival. Open access, rather than programmed. However, that doesn't mean that the quality isn't there. Indeed, because The Great Escape is relatively restricted in terms of numbers, The Alternative Escape offers great opportunities for labels, management companies, media organisations (such as yours truly), promoters, agencies and the like to organise their own shows, in venues they see fit but still have the benefits of being promoted within The Great Escape publicity machine, via their website and printed programme. Many acts crossover, playing both TGE and TAE within the three days of the event. So, the quality is often very high.
  • Brightonsfinest Alternative Escape Showcase

    Brightonsfinest Alternative Escape Showcase Brightonsfinest are once again taking over the breathtakingly beautiful St Mary’s Church on Saturday 19th May, during The Great Escape Festival, for another great day of music. After the success of last year’s Alternative Escape showcase, we are excited to bring you the full line-up that boasts to be our best yet. It’s free entry to all and features ten fantastic emerging as well as established acts from Brighton and further afield. Check out the line-up below. SJ Brett, Charles Watson, Dog In The Snow, Thyla, Trudy and The Romance, FUR,
  • Her's soft rock return

    Her's soft rock return Her's are back with the puppy love sentiments of sunny soft rocker 'Love On The Line (Call Now)', with an album slated for release this summer. Her’s are made up of Norwegian Audun Laading and Cumbrian Stephen Fitzpatrick, a relationship that blossomed from a chance encounter in a university canteen, their natural chemistry fired up by an encyclopedic love of off-kilter humour and art, resulting in a radiant slacker indie-pop littered with gorgeous melodies that Mac DeMarco would be proud of.
  • Her’s – The Hope & Ruin – 17th November 2017

    Her’s - The Hope & Ruin - 17th November 2017 Her’s – The Hope & Ruin – 17th November 2017 Her’s are a two-piece from Liverpool but, really, they’re a four-piece. The other two members? One, is the use of a drum machine, which could be the greatest use of a drum machine I’ve ever seen. It’s in no way artificial and seems to enhance the band rather than disguise the fact they don’t have a drummer. The second? Well that would be a cardboard cutout of Pierce Brosnan from his James Bond days, and it certainly sets a tone for the evening: funny, whimsical, highly entertaining with a licence to thrill.
