Watch: I Can See Pluto
Formed in the summer of 2017, The Hideaways are quickly becoming one of Bristol’s most exciting alt-rock bands, playing sold-out shows to a rapidly growing fanbase. Influenced by artists like Foals, Biffy Clyro, Radiohead and The National, they play innovative space-wide rock built on ramped up riffs, head-pounding percussion and unbridled angst.
The band’s first display came from a session where both Lion Chase and Chain The Great were filmed live and raw. They then went on to evolve their sound into something heavier and more experimental with their debut single Wolves (December 2017). The follow-up I'm Here, Storm dropped in February 2018 along with a music video starring Guillaume Rivaud (Poldark, Mordred). This was followed by I Can See Pluto which was played by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music after receiving strong support from BBC Introducing and several indie blogs.
As well as selling out their debut headline gig at a 250-cap venue, they’ve also taken their intense live show to Manchester’s Bread Shed and The Dublin Castle in Camden to name just a couple. They have supported acts such as Big Country & Glass Caves, and are becoming renowned for playing to big crowds at the AMEX Stadium (Brighton) and festivals including Dot 2 Dot and The Great Escape (Alt).
CLOWNFIGHT is their newest single, debuted on BBC Introducing In The West in October 2018. Beginning life as a stripped down and sweaty punk song, CLOWNFIGHT mutated over time into a song built upon stark contrasts; the fuzz-laden guitars of the intro alongside the bridge’s eerie synth, the cock-sure lyrical swagger of the opening verses giving way to nervous introspection and self-doubt.
