Best Debut Album Of 2020 – ‘BEDROOM’ By BDRMM

26 December 2020

Bandbdrmm
Who: Five good boys from Hull, UK

Album: Bedroom
Released: 3 July 2020

Info: “Formed into the early hours of 2017, Hull (UK) based Ryan Smith left
his bedroom to stage a band called bdrmm. They produce a slimy cocktail of
synth-soaked Beach House, jangly slackers DIIV and otherworldly shoe-gazers
Slowdive. They combine a knack for weaving dreamy sonic textures and
sentimental story-telling together perfectly.”

Key references: Ride, Lush, The Horrors, The Cure, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins

NME said: “This is without doubt a modern-day shoegaze classic.”
Full review here. Score: 5/5

TUTV said: The glowing-and-glimmering-guitar-scapes brilliance from start to finish
is totally amazing. Double-edged emotions wrapped in sterling shoegaze symphonies performed in a sonic universe between heaven and earth. It’s a 24 carat gold piece de resistance. The perfect companion to ease your lockdown blues. Best debut of 2020.

Believe The Hype – bdrmm Shines on Glowing Debut Longplayer ‘BEDROOM’

16 July 2020

Bandbdrmm
Who: Five good boys  from Hull, UK
Album: Bedroom
Released: 3 July 2020 – debut LP
Info: “Formed into the early hours of 2017, Ryan Smith took his solo project from bedroom
to stage in what feels like an instant. Under the moniker ‘bdrmm’ the Hull 5-piece cut their
teeth across Northern venues, before releasing opening two singles, the twin-paced ‘kare’
and sprawling anti-epic ‘the way i want’. A slimy cocktail of synth-soaked Beach House, jangly slackers DIIV and otherworldly shoe-gazers Slowdive, the group combine a knack for weaving dreamy sonic textures and sentimental story-telling together perfectly.”

NME said: “Four years in the making, it’s been that long since frontman Ryan Smith wrote his first demo before clocking in for a twelve-hour shift at his local pub. Quickly growing into a five-piece, it wasn’t long before bdrmm’s bright shoegaze singles and live shows led to them signing to Sonic Cathedral, a label renowned for being a paradise of noise, and releasing their debut EP ‘If Not, When?’ last October… Vulnerability seeps through ‘Bedroom’ at every turn, but it’s veiled in a relatable beauty that’s both meditative and cleansing. bdrmm have mastered that fine art of conveying emotion through their music with a deft intelligence, and their debut immerses you with each listen and says: “Hey, it’s okay to screw up now and again – but learn from it.” A glorious and human introduction, this is without doubt a modern-day shoegaze classic.” Full review here. Score: 5/5

Key phrase: “I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to
use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”
