Hailing from Hull, The Hubbards are made up of Reuben, Alex, Ronan and Joe. TT has delved into some of the Soundcloud highlights to introduce them to you:
Born To Fly
On paper, injecting a bit of bravado into shoegaze and the delicate indie of The Cure seems a dead cert. Well, this isn’t romping home but is well worth an each way bet.
Vocally, this showcases a lighter side of the band. The softer delivery and cadence bring Blossoms to mind but, the switch to a more aggressive style latterly lifts them away from their peers. More importantly, it highlights an ability to tell stories through sound as well as lyrics, a skill often underused.
Bread and Cigarettes
A rite of passage for indie bands is throwing too many ideas into the pot at once. This is theirs. There are lots of things to like but as a whole, it feels too fragmented to enjoy.
The antithesis of ‘Bread and Cigarettes’. Clear and harmonious from start to finish. It lacks that killer hook to become a top ten break through but still screams day time radio. Give this band time and support and a big break through seems inevitable.
