Flowby 

 

"If you've ever experienced a piece of music that sends indisputable shivers through every nerve and sinew in your body you'll know that it had to be something somewhat unique. Something so compulsive that it can embrace your dreams, cut short your thoughts and weave itself into your daily chores. Hush Collector's Debut EP manages to do just this...Their debut 'Flowby' manages to seduce the listener, haunting their mind with the most intense, spirited vocals conceivable...they have a natural flair for producing the most intricate, poignant music on the western front. Each track is the perfect blend of sumptuous, yet at times morose vocals, married to the captivating sounds of the acoustic guitar. With a sound so distinctive there can be no instantaneous comparisons, Hush Collector manages to wrap you up and reel you into their harmonious world...With such a genuinely exquisite sound there need be no labeling or criticism, Hush Collector are a genuine act who are set to make their mark on the music industry very soon".

History

 

Take a pinch of The Cowboy Junkies, mix it up with hints of Calexico and give it a 4AD sensibility. Now set it down by the coast to give it that sense of natural space. Sounds nice, yes?

If you talk about 'music for grown-ups' it sounds dull. Too often 'emotional songs from the heart' means the sterile emptiness of this years Coldplay imitators and words like 'chilled' are abused beyond meaning. Hush Collector are all these things - as they are meant to be. It sounds like the easiest thing in the world, but it isn't. So when you find it...

Flowby, a four-track ep, doesn't sound like a debut release. It sounds formed, a fully-realised work made by people who know what they're doing. There's a good reason for that. Hush Collector - Poppy Gonzalez (vocals, piano, acoustic guitar, percussion), Katie Mummery (vocals, piano, acoustic guitar) and Peter Simmons (guitars, bass) - have done this before. From their previous involvement with Mojave 3 (4AD) to credits on the debut Sing-Sing album (Poptones) and vocals for London underground dj Harold Heath (Urban Torque), they have honed their craft individually, polished their ideas and now together they are ready.

Based in Brighton on the British south coast, Hush Collector take you to a place where drifting melancholy collides with haunting melody and country-tinged harmonies jostle with an edgy blues guitar. It is an inviting place - trust us. (jed Novick - Music Journalist/Author)

Some excerpts from press reviews :

"If you've ever experienced a piece of music that sends indisputable shivers through every nerve and sinew in your body you'll know that it had to be something somewhat unique. Something so compulsive that it can embrace your dreams, cut short your thoughts and weave itself into your daily chores. Hush Collector's Debut EP manages to do just this"... (Alt Links)

"...sunbeaten laidback rock music, a country gust blowing through it along with a Cocteau Twins-like breeze. A delicate creature to be well looked after" (The Vanity Project Mag)



"All the buttons that make us swoon...vocals that are so seductive, you can feel them hooking you in...delicate countryside melody that simmers with desire...alluringly sultry warming nighttime Mediterranean windswept aspect that recalls Ana D of Elefante records fame, with the Ghost of Nick Drake peeking over their shoulder...A truly wonderful debut release"...(Losing Today Mag)

"...In the hazy drunken moments whilst your thoughts are falling out of your head and scuttling under the bed you need something to soundtrack it...the rich vocal a siren song to your hazy memory. Pitched somewhere between Mazzy Star and Azure Ray, it results in something poised on the edge of prettiness with enough disturbing whispers to keep you interested". (Americana UK)

"a slightly dark brand of acoustic-tinged slowcore that is rich in melody and texture......a gorgeous musical statement.......a sumptuous exercise in restraint and emotion......leaving the listener begging for more"..(Somewhere Cold Magazine)

"Hush Collector creeps into your head with stealth. Before you realize it, you're caught in their atmospheric trap, mesmerized by the mysterious solitude created by their music.... They manage to do in four songs what most groups fail to do in an entire album---which is captivate and manipulate without tiring out the listener"... (Mish Mash Online Mag)
