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

The Hideaways' sound is a combination of raging guitars and driving rhythms alongside dark electronic and subtle trip-hop influences.


Their latest release, You’re Everything, was released in Spring 2021 and saw the band continue their relationship with producer Matt Glasbey (Editors, Zooni).


“It’s the most electronic song we’ve recorded so far” says frontman Danny Pugh. “We’ve flirted with that side of things before but on You’re Everything we really wanted to lean into it and get all glitchy and frantic. Obviously we made sure to keep boatloads of guitars in it and Jack is still battering his drums just in case people are worried that we’re turning into a Depeche Mode tribute act.”

The band are currently recording a new EP written during lockdown, scheduled for release in late 2021.


The Hideaways play a headline show at Bristol’s Rough Trade on 20th November 2021 with further UK-wide gigs in the pipeline.
