bdrmm are a five-piece based in Hull and Leeds who bring a modern zest to shoegaze, and a wide-eyed wonder at the possibilities that the genre offers them. Echoes of post-punk and krautrock can be heard in the undulating grooves of their incredibly moreish sound.
The group released their debut album, titled Bedroom, to high acclaim on 3rd July via Sonic Cathedral. It was hailed as a “modern-day shoegaze classic” by NME, who gave it a 5-star rating, while The Line Of Best Fit called it “an assured and brilliant debut”.
The 10-track album was recorded late last year at The Nave studio in Leeds by Alex Greaves (Working Mens Club, Bo Ningen). It’s a hugely accomplished debut and a real step up both sonically and lyrically from their early singles, which were rounded up on last year’s If Not, When? EP. Musically, there are nods to The Cure’s Disintegration, Deerhunter and DIIV, while the band reference RIDE and Radiohead. As a result, Bedroom becomes an unexpected and unintentional concept album, running through the different stages of a break-up set against the backdrop of the ups and downs of your early 20s.
