Indie-Pop scamps The Hyde return today with their catchy new single ‘Half Past Nine’ (via Monomyth Records). Following the success of their previous releases ‘Let’s Talk’ and ‘Nerves, the trio continue to establish a sound that embraces big pop melodies, tropical guitars and synths to paint teenage pictures about their ever-changing world.
“’Half Past 9’ is about how people use social media to spin lies, leave false trails and play with people’s feelings,” explains frontman Charlie Beck. “It’s about thinking you know someone when you’re with them, yet online they are telling a different story about you.”
The Hyde are an indie three-piece from Wakefield. Like their fellow Northern guitar-wielding heroes The Cribs and Blossoms, they create music for people to dance, sing and fall in and out of love to – preferably all in the same night. Taking an admirably old school approach to earning their stripes as a band, the teenagers have been cutting their teeth in live venues and festival stages around West Yorkshire for the past couple of years and now turn their attention nationwide.
The Hyde play The Lending Room in Leeds on 3rd December.
