Hildamay clearly have no concern for current trends or a desire to merely blend in with their peers and contemporaries. Deciding rather to voyage the hard and lonely road of individuality with their alcohol sodden and tear stained brand of punk 'n' roll. 'We Loved, We Lost' is the soundtrack to this dark and troubling expedition.
With the current line-up coming together in 2010, regaling tales of a difficult and thorny past are far from Hildamay's collective minds as the Sidcup quintet continue to progress and develop together in what has already been a memorable 2011 for the band.
2011 has seen Hildamay: complete their 7 track debut, 'We Loved, We Lost' - set for release on September 5th; sign with A Wolf At Your Door Records and SGR Management; achieve national radio play on the Radio 1 Rock Show; secure a slot at this years Hevy Festival; support the likes of Letlive and Title Fight and confirm a UK tour with label mates Mallory Knox as well as a number of live performances.
'We Loved, We Lost' is a boisterous and evocative affair which runs the full gambit of emotions and displays a band with a unique and diverse sound. Remarkably distinctive guitar styling's for such a relatively new band are enthused with cutting hooks and an emphatic rhythm force who forge the foundations upon which the raucous vocals of Tim Lawrence leap from.
It leaves little questioning as to why Hildamay are predicted to rise from the shadows of cult status into the very forefront of the UK music scene, and it's an introduction that will undoubtedly queue an equally hectic close to 2011 and open of 2012.
