Bdrmm Announce Debut LP 'Bedroom', Stream "Is That What You Wanted To Hear?"

Hull-based dream pop/psych/shoegaze band Bdrmm have announced the release of their highly-anticipated debut album 'Bedroom'.

The 10-track record was recorded late last year at the nave studio in leeds by alex greaves (working mens club, bo ningen) and mastered in brooklyn by heba kadry (slowdive, beach house), and will be out on on July 3, via Sonic Cathedral. Pre-order your copy here.

Musically, there are nods to The Cure's Disintegration, Deerhunter and DIIV, while the band reference Ride and Radiohead. There are also echoes of krautrock and post-punk, from The Chameleons to Protomartyr, plus the proto shoegaze of the Pale Saints' The Comforts Of Madness, not least in the cross fading of some tracks, meaning the album is an almost seamless listen. As a result, Bedroom becomes an unexpected and unintentional concept album, running through the different stages of a break-up set against the backdrop of the ups and downs of your early twenties.

"The subject matter spans mental health, alcohol abuse, unplanned pregnancy, drugs. Basically every cliché topic that you could think of," reveals frontman Ryan Smith. "But that doesn't mean they ever stop being relevant. it's a fucker growing up, but i'm lucky enough to have been able to project my feelings in the form of this band, surrounded by four of the best people i've ever met."
