Birkenhead Priory


Pulsing and brooding, HMS Morris’ cinematic electro pop is devilishly and deliciously unhinged. For those who like Björk levels of quirkiness, Melody’s Echo Chamber-like dreamscapes and a woman who rivals Kate Bush for mascara-smeared caterwauling, then anchor this ship of cool to your heart.

Led by singer Heledd Watkins (Marcella and The Forget Me Nots, Emmy The Great and Chloe Howl) and completed by Sam Roberts and Wil Roberts (Mwsog and Wilma Sands), HMS Morris released their first single on Blinc Records in 2014. After working between Llanymddyfri, Cardiff and London and developing their style, the band’s heart came to rest in Cardiff by embracing their psychedelic Welsh heritage, with mind-blowing hooky melodies warped by rebellious synth loops and unexpected vocal harmonies.
