“They have honed a raucously engaging sound that puts them right up there with the most exciting new bands” - Gig Radar

The Hideaways: the Bristol-based trio famed for charged lyrics, thunderous drumming and trip-hop infused electronic music, release their latest EP PEER/STARE on Sink Records. 


Released 04 March 22 the four track EP comes off the back of a sold-out Bristol Rough Trade show. In their latest release, The Hideaways bring a fresh new sound, dripping in lyricism and rollicking choruses. 


In PEER/STARE the trio build on the rambunctious energy of their earlier work, ditching the polished production in favour of a raw and edgy soundscape. Fans of Massive Attack may sense the influence of Bristolian legend Stew Jackson, who came on board to help The Hideaways further develop their signature style. Speaking ahead of launch, lead singer Danny Pugh said:


“We created this EP differently, detuning the synths and making it feel rawer. Stew took our vision, gave it a pulse, and brought it to life. He’s crafted an early ‘80s sound with the drums taking inspiration from Talking Heads. It’s live music for low-lit rooms where you dance around like a weirdo.” 

As spring approaches, and the boys emerge from their greenhouse of 1980s-inspired-synths and driving drums, now is the time for PEER/STARE..
