UK Duo HOOFA Reflect on Indie Burner BROTHER

It’s a Melancholic, Dream-Indie Anthem

By Vasco Dega

Adopting a true and authentic DIY approach to making and releasing music, indie-risers Hoofa have been carving out their own niche through their 80’s influenced, dreamy guitar music. Since first launching their project, they’ve garnered support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio with support across Spotify’s playlist network. 

Having already worked with esteemed producer, Tom McFall (Editors, Snow Patrol) and mastering engineer Robin Schmidt (The 1975, The Courteeners) on previous releases, the band have reached out to Ed Heaton (Marsicans) and Barry Grint (Everything Everything, Foals) to mix and master the new single. It’s an introspective, melancholic piece of indie with clean guitar licks throughout.

Speaking on the new single the band state: Brother is an introspective song about looking back at growing up with siblings. Like most, James fought and argued with his brothers, and they often fell out about minor things, but despite it all they’ll always be his brothers. The song’s verses are from different sections of James’ childhood – fighting and breaking bones in the earlier years and then playing silly games to keep yourself busy when you can’t sleep at night and sharing a bunk bed, to growing apart whilst at university and then leaving the country.”
