Press Release

With Hull-based four-piece The Hubbards having rapidly made a name for themselves thanks to their own shimmering brand of slacker-pop, it might come as a surprise that the band’s latest single Good When I’m Done is darker, more encompassing and more ambitious than anything they’ve done before.

Though not eschewing their trademark wooziness entirely, Good When I’m Done is arguably the band at their most mature. Not just content with wearing their hearts on their sleeves as with previous releases, the four-piece “put it on a plate for you” – vocalist Reuben Driver’s delivery sounding more pained and more heartfelt than ever before.

Taking the effervescent energy of indie-pop buzz bands such as JAWS, and combining it with an irrefutable tenacity that owes far more to punk’s DIY ideals than the polished production of the aforementioned, The Hubbard’s occupy an uncharted middle ground between established indie-pop and hipster swagger, a formula that has seen tracks played on both Radio One and 6Music, while previous singles ‘Cold Cut’ and more recently, ‘Easy Go’ was used on ‘Made In Chelsea’. Such acclaim has made the band something of hometown heroes in their native Hull, and as a result, they recently played as the first act to headline their city’s brand new 3,500 capacity Hull venue.

With what seems like an almost constant stream of releases continuing to propel The Hubbards ever upwards in their ascent to the top of the game, Good When I’m Done feels like yet another milestone in their career. Bold, brash and brilliantly self-deprecating and unequivocally Hubbards, the four-lads from East Yorkshire continue to set the benchmark for indie-pop ever higher.
