Young four-piece Hush War Cry all met while studying Architecture in college together in Cork. Their delicate, nuanced sound is already frightfully well developed. Rich arrangements of guitar, piano and subtleties recall the ornate histrionics of Wild Beasts. The Apparitions EP out this month will be the world’s first taste of these promising young learned things.
Where does your band name come from?
Hopefully it describes our sound. It actually came from a Rimbaud poem called ‘Parisian War Cry’ and we never really liked Paris.
What was the strangest thing that happened to you in 2011?
Finding chickens in our kitchen.
