“An excellent introduction to the band’s radiant slacker-pop” Stereogum
“There’s something instantly charismatic about Her’s which proves pivotal.. It takes their jangly, oddball pop songs into another league” – DIY
The seeds of Her’s have well and truly rooted themselves in Liverpool. Originally a meeting of minds between Norway’s Audun Laading and Barrow-born Stephen Fitzpatrick, Her’s forged a strong chemical bond through a mutual love of off-kilter humour and outsider art.
Having clocked over one million streams between the two tracks on their debut single ‘Dorothy’ and ‘What Once Was’, and after following it up with the lackadaisical thrift-store humour of their sun-bleached single ‘Marcel’ and the exhilarating surf romp of ‘Speed Racer’, Her’s are now primed to release what will be a rollicking document of their infant career so far. ‘Songs of Her’s’ will be out on the 12th of May, and it includes all their recorded output to date plus five new songs to make for the most complete introduction to their eccentric world yet.
Prior to this Her’s are debuting new song ‘I’ll Try’. Taking a more romantic turn than the raunchy singles they’ve so far put out, ‘I’ll Try’ comes on like Mac Demarco fronting The Smiths – all lovelorn ballideering atop sprightly indie bass lines with shades of jangle pop in the production. This new number reveals a tender and unpredictable side to the duo, whose vital take on slacker rock has taken them to the top of their city’s vibrant new indie scene.
As well as recent support tours with Wild Nothing and Dutch Uncles, Her’s greatly impressed at six SXSW showcases and return to accompany Happyness on their UK tour. Strong support for the duo from the likes of Stereogum, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, BEAT, Dork, Lauren Laverne and Huw Stephens stands them in good stead.
These outsiders are leaving a trail of bleeding hearts and dropped jaws. At this rate, 2017 is theirs.
