Hookworms

Microshift (Domino)

Sold Out

RELEASED: 2nd February 2018
Indie Only Alt Artwork Vinyl LP

The urgency and viscera - both live and on record - that led Yorkshire-based five-piece Hookworms to prominence across two blistering full length albums, 2013’s ‘Pearl Mystic’ and 2014 follow-up ‘The Hum’, remains. However, as they return with their much-anticipated third record ‘Microshift’, the band deliver a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting and production.

Radiant, immersive and teeming with light but still heavy and forceful, the music on ‘Microshift’ acts as a very deliberate counter to some of the difficult topics the album’s lyrics address - ranging from death, disease, heartbreak, body image and even natural disaster.

Hookworms have pulled off a triumph against adversity, a comeback with what they may see as a ‘Microshift’ but is in fact a massive advancement.
