Full-fat alt-rock from Pickering, North Yorkshire.
HUNTER-GATHERER’s sound is one heavily influenced by the frequencies of '90s and ‘00s alternative rock. Influences include Nirvana, Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine. However, the band’s feet are firmly placed in the 21st century; the group draw much of their inspiration from new acts such as Issues and IDLES.
Both the band’s early self-recorded material and their latest releases from Young Thugs studios have been championed by northern press and radio, including BBC Radio Introducing York and North Yorkshire. In 2019, Jericho Keys of BBC Introducing declared their single Head Down as: ‘yet another blinder of a single from HUNTER-GATHERER. What a way to end the show!’.
In March 2020, HUNTER-GATHERER released their most successful single to date, Killjoy. Described by RGM Press as ‘a hit tailored for fans of Soundgarden and Red Hot Chili Peppers', the single would later be chosen by Sound of Scarborough as the opening track of their second collaborative vinyl. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign in October, the band are busy crafting their debut EP, ‘Out of the Woods', due for release in spring 2021.
