hermes release double A side Anyone Who Cares / More Love In Death out 25th April
West country pop punk purveyors hermes are set to release their second single double A Side Anyone Who Cares / More Love In Death this Spring. Unbelievably accomplished for a young band, it's easy to see why the US have started to fall for their charms.
Chicago's JBTV founder Jerry Bryant heard about the band and absolutely loved them. He has become a cult figure on American TV helping to introduce bands like Arcade Fire, Hot Hot Heat and The Gaslight Anthem to the American public.
"Anyone Who Cares" is utterly infectious. It shows a more mature and poignant side to the band. It is an intense song about feeling alienated by the ones you love, the insecure sign of coming of age.
On the flip side "More Love In Death" shows the more carefree aspect of growing up. It's an uplifting tale of trying out new things, rejecting the dull and welcoming something exciting.
