TUNE HIMALAYAS - Sigh on a Hurricane
HIMALAYAS release their new single, ‘Sigh On A Hurricane’ on October 27 via Peepshow Records, available across all digital platforms.
HIMALAYAS create a garage punk noise that hits you with a killer combination of catchy riffs and sing along choruses, all driven by the flamboyant swagger of youth. Earlier this year the band released the incendiary ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ which brought them exposure to global audiences and went on to feature on numerous Spotify curated playlists including The Indie List, New Music Friday, Walk Like a Badass, Rocked., Totally Alternative & New Noise, achieving over one million streams in three months.
New single ‘Sigh On A Hurricane’ is another blistering offering from the Cardiff four-piece that that is pure raw energy from the offset. Unapologetically noisy and filled with youthful snarl, the track is a hard hitting anthem on the state of the current political landscape and dwindling quality of discourse. Speaking about the track, lyricist Mike Griffiths said, ‘The track is about the failures of our democracy and and the feelings of insignificance that come with it to the extent that it feels as though nothing anyone says can make a genuine difference.’ The single was produced by Steffan Pringle, who’s worked with the likes of Future of the Left and Estrons, as well as the band’s previous track.
HIMALAYAS are an indie/garage rock band from Cardiff formed in 2015, comprising of Joe Williams (rhythm guitar and vocals), Mike Griffiths (lead guitar and vocals), Louis Heaps (Bass) and James Goulbourn (drums).
