Hull-based quintet bdrmm walk the line between dream pop and shoegaze switching between ethereal melancholy and driving delay with ease. Originally a solo project from lead vocalist Ryan Smith, it ended up turning into a fully-fledged band comprising of Smith’s brother Jordan on bass, Joe Vickers on guitar, Danny Hull on synth and backing vocals, and Luke Irvin on drums. Their debut single, “C:U” was picked up by indie London label Permanent Creep, which secured the song radio play. The track was noticed by Sonic Cathedral, which signed the band in 2019 and went on to release their debut EP, If Not, When? later the same year. They followed up with a full-length release, Bedroom, in 2020.
