The Hubbards

The Hubbards

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.

Cold Cut

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.
