Himalayas have that rare and killer skill of combining of catchy riffs with massive sing-a-long choruses, anyone that’s seen them at Isle of Wight Festival and Reading Festival (both for Jack Rocks/This Feeling) will tell you – there’s more than a touch of early Arctic Monkeys about them, they’re that good. Previous single (and mega tune) ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ brought them exposure to global audiences and featured on numerous Spotify curated playlists. ‘Sigh On A Hurricane’ keeps the pedal firmly on the floor; it’s another blistering offering which has gone straight onto Spotify’s indie play-list and Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 show.
Unapologetically noisy and filled with youthful snarl, the track is a hard hitting anthem on the state of the current political landscape ‘The track is about the failures of our democracy and and the feelings of insignificance that come with it to the extent that it feels as though nothing anyone says can make a genuine difference’. A band with something to say, passion, anger and channelling it into great music and chaotic shows – that’s our type of band. Without a shadow of a doubt one of the most important new bands in the UK. Get on ’em.
