Hidden Charms have announced the forthcoming release of their new single Cannonball, with a fresh sound to carry them into a busy summer of festival appearances. The track, following on from their hugely successful 2015 single Love You Cause You’re There released on Deltasonic records, sees the band branch into new territory, having cut their teeth on touring the country’s best loved rock n’ roll venues for the last two years they’ve arrived at something totally unique.
They have moved away from their traditional psychedelic style and waded into deeper waters, discordant guitar twangs tie together the visceral vocals. It’s obvious that Cannonball hints at a new chapter altogether for the band, and one that won’t sound like anything you’ve heard before.
The London outfit, comprising of Vincent Davies (vocals/guitar/bass), Ranald Macdonald (vocals/keys), Josh Lewis (guitar) and Oscar Robertson (drums), have already gained a fierce reputation for their live shows with support slots for Benjamin Booker, Hanni El Khatib, X Ambassadors and YAK over the last 18 months alongside a four-week Club NME Koko residency.
