Founded on a shared affinity for rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop and soulful melodies, the North Yorkshire four piece have been steadily braising a world of their own. Throughout their sound weaves an undercurrent of fuzzy guitars, thumping bass and drums, and an unmistakable vocal “I watched a clip of Otis Rush belting out ‘I Can’t Quit You Baby’ and thought - I’ve gotta learn to sing like that!” – Max Dalton.
What’s clear is this: it is a music born of the moment yet marinated in the best of the past.
2020 will see Hello Operator release their debut album and it’s sure to be a hell of a ride.
