hmv's Next Big Thing... #7 CuckooLander

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you CuckooLander and her spark-filled pop...


Who Is She?

CuckooLander is Holly Hardy, she was once Charli XCX's touring drummer, but now she's making plenty of waves in her own right, as the ethereal and elegant CuckooLander. 


Who Does She Sound Like?

Hardy's calling cards are a mixture of the harsh guitars of early PJ Harvey and Hole and the wild experimentation of Radiohead, Frank Zappa and Boards Of Canada. It's witchy, it's very raw and very affecting. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Because she's exceptional live and writes brilliant, brilliant songs. 


Can I Hear Something?

Certainly. You can see the video for 'What's Out There' below and pick up her debut EP here in our digital store.
