Brooders

Combining chaotic heavy riffs with a swirling psychedelic edge, the psych-grunge three piece Brooders, are an experience you wont soon forget. Having found their feet the traditional way, Brooders have gigged and toured the UK relentlessly for the last two years testing the waters with an endless stream of musical exploration and rigorous song craft.

To date Brooders have covered the lands with their loud melodic barrage of psych. Having played the likes of Sound City, Y Not, Dot To Dot, Tramlines, Humber Street Sesh and countless more live shows up and down the country. During this time Brooders have released a six track mini album and then five additional singles over their time as a band.

In the last year alone, Brooders have also been championed by the likes of BBC Introducing Yorkshire/Sheffield, Amazing Radio, Sine FM and YO Radio on their conquest to deliver their sonic whiplash far and wide.

The band have wooed audiences in the UK and mainland Europe, sharing stages with everyone from Fangclub, Vasudeva, Tellison and Beach Slang, as well as playing alongside Jonah Matranga at the end of 2018 to tour the 20 year anniversary of Far’s seminal album, Water & Solutions.

Bloodhound

Bloodhound are a three-piece grunge-rock band from Hull taking influence from the likes of modern rock and classic grunge bands like Drenge, Queens of The Stone Age, Royal Blood and Alice In Chains. Bloodhound’s new single, ‘FRSTRTD’, is a collaboration between themselves and Leeds based psych-grunge trio Brooders, who feature on the track as well having produced, mixed and mastered the project. Their sound delivers monstrous riffs and mammoth choruses alongside psychedelic noise that twists their songs into fast-paced utopia.

“Confident, catchy and beautifully airy … carves out its own slightly woozy niche” - Bitter Sweet Symphonies

Line Up

Brooders are a three-piece Psych Grunge band from Leeds who are reworking the underground scene within the city. ​ Brooders stand out in the mix through re-inventing of a genre tarnished with despair and tragedy. Like a fine wine, Brooders bring the revitalisation of the Grunge genre with a modern twist. Nailing down a unique genre is always a tricky job, however the slimmed down title of psych-grunge does not do the music justice. With songs moving from riffy mayhem to spacey new age fuzzy punk in a moments notice, Brooders explore the extent of what you can handle. Brooders wait with an out stretched hand waiting to lure in the next merry mosher to the pit.

During their time as a band Brooders have played festivals such as Sound City Festival and a number of shows with likes of fellow grungey representatives God Damn, Hands Off Gretel, Crosa Rosa, Fizzy Blood, Fighting Caravans. Brooders have also received airtime a number of times nationally on radio stations such as BBC Nottingham, BBC Yorkshire, Leeds Student Radio. ​ “… Brooders’ aptly-titled Haze kicks up dirt in your face with three minutes of lo-fi fuzz and fury, the kind of stuff that gets sweat dripping from club walls; a noise that makes halfway between Washington State and the desert a great place to break down …” NARC MAGAZINE

“… The melodic very rarely sits alongside terms such as grunge or psyche, but Brooders have released a sound that immediately embeds itself into your brain with its forceful hooks …” FLICK OF THE FINGER

"...Brooders’ mini LP is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Kudos to them for being the epitome of musical disruption and pleasure – their mini LP is exactly what I’ve needed in my life without even realising it...." BRIG MAGAZINE
