hmv's Next Big Thing... #267 0171
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you future pop pair 0171...
Who Are They?
0171 are Joe Bedell-Brill and Georgie Hoare. Bedell-Brill is from Hackney, where the pair are now based, while Hoare is from Norwich.
Formed in 2018, the duo, who take their name from the now-defunct telephone code for Hackney, have released a steady stream of tracks and are building a solid fanbase.
What Do They Sound Like?
0171 makes glossy, but somehow irresistibly wonky electro-pop. Imagine Grimes, but without the wild fantastical overtures, or The 1975 in their more reflective, dreamy moments.
Why Should I Be Excited?
The pair's output is alluring and they're getting better with every new track they drop.
Can I Hear Something?
Indeed. Their new track 'Photograph' is below for you to enjoy...
