Hull, U.K.-based quintet Bdrmm walk the line between dream pop and shoegaze, switching between ethereal melancholy and driving delay with ease.
Originally a solo project, lead vocalist Ryan Smith decided to expand into a band; he roped in his brother, Jordan Smith, on bass before drafting Joe Vickers (guitar), Danny Hull (synth, backing vocals), and Luke Irvin (drums). Their debut single, "C:U," was picked up by small London label Permanent Creep, which secured the song radio play. The track was noticed by Sonic Cathedral, which signed the band in 2019 and went on to release their debut EP, If Not, When?, later the same year. They followed up with a full-length release, Bedroom, in 2020. ~ Liam Martin, Rovi
