I’ve found a new addiction and it comes in the form of new musical project hear with their dark, hypnotic, lyrically enchanting music. ‘Oysters’ in particular stood out to me with its poetically pertinent messages of sexual perversion, discovery, frustration, desire… “did it please you well? to see her hanging there”.
It’s hard for me not to draw parallels to early Savages, however hear are of course distinct in their own version of post-punk. hear is a musical project from Jorinde Croese and Natalie Connlly who aptly say “… we’re not quite sure how to classify – labels perhaps feel a little old, and the music doesn’t quite come from obvious reference points, at least not for us.”
Without a doubt hear are now firmly on my ‘Ones to Watch’ list, fingers crossed for some live dates soon.
