With every good band, there’s often a weird, wacky backstory to how the band came to be. Worchester’s own HVMM are no different. Having met as a result of an inexplicable bar ‘scuffle’, lead singer Andy Teece and drummer Sam Jenkins formed the first iterations of HVMM. Now having expanded to a fully fleshed out four-piece the Worchester rockers are poised to bring a ferocious sound to our ears.
Their latest track, ‘Beggars and Thieves’ is a stunning example. Kicking off with a bluesy guitar, it’s not long before a pounding bass line takes over, and lead singer Andy Treece’s vocals cut through as the song develops into a grungy banger. With a sound at times reminiscent of early Franz Ferdinand, the rest of HVMM’s current discography is a gold mine of fast-paced, ear enticing tracks which are ready for the world’s stages.
Currently gearing up for the release of their debut, Talk To Me Like I’m Dead – pegged for release in early September – HVMM are already set to leave a scorching mark on this year’s music scene.
