Hirola (UK)

New Bristol based duo creating dreamy bass heavy electronic pop with more than a light dusting of William Basinski inspired piano, Rival Consoles-esque beats, and one ex-Old Apparatus member making them one of the most accomplished live acts to emerge under the radar in 2017.

 

Their first tape EP on Phantom Limb enjoyed plays on 6Music care of Mary Anne Hobbs, and received excellent press in a multitude of top outlets.

 

Live the show consists of the duo face to face, playing pads, guitar, keys live, and both singing.

 

They played their first shows to revellers in London, Bristol and Brighton in December, and will tour UK & EU this spring.
