“Even if it hurts, stay true to your beliefs,” sing Bristol quartet Hush Mozey on their recent single, ‘Trim The Roses’. Assuming they already have masochists and sadists on message with that lyric, there’s something in this track for everyone, with its gently encouraging lyrical sense of doing what you can, where and when you can, to stay true to all the things you hold dear, even if it’s “the drowzy life” from “eating Xanax at quarter to three.”
They call their sound ‘drowzy rock and roll’, and this is their most sedate effort yet. This is a tune that could easily soundtrack a long, sunny locked-down afternoon, whether you have the luxury of your own garden or whether you’re walking through your locality with it in ringing in your ears. The only thing you won’t get from that experience is the lyric video for ‘Trim The Roses’, which we’re delighted to premiere today on Bristol in Stereo. So get an eyeful of that before you head out for some vitamin D.
The track was recorded at Malthouse Studios, produced by Lewis Bradshaw and mastered by Pete Maher.
