Denizen to Release Hhymn in FDRHD
The well received Hhymn album 'In the Depths' is about to be fully remastered from the original session mixes to FDRHD format by Head Mastering Engineer JP Braddock at Formation Audio. The album was the first major release on Denizen and we at FDRHD.com are excited about its addition to our catalogue.
"This album is fantastic there is not a single bad track. I guess this could be down to the fact I love Folk music and this album hits the spot. I must say that the opening two tracks These Hands and Not Before I Go stand out for me as there is a chilled out vibe. Other than those 2 tracks the remaing 8 are pure folk. So go give this band a listen to you won’t be disappointed. Any fan of folk music would love this Nottingham based band."
"With In The Depths, Hhymn have created a debut album with enough musical armoury to blast your ears into the next century, that’s for sure. Leading the way beyond 4-chord obsessed bands, they provide not only lyrical craft and endearment, but such a breadth of internal musical styles that they could set up their own brand of Hhymn 57 Varieties. In fact, if it was Marks and Spencers who were writing this review, they’d probably finish by saying, ‘this isn’t just folk music, this is alternative, Hhymn folk music.’ And by golly, does that sum it up nicely."
"With strong comparisons to Beirut and Bon Iver, additional influences envelope their sound, with the lower register of Bannard on the opening of ‘Girl Of Mine’ echoing Morrissey, and ‘Wolves’ emulating the bare tenderness that Radiohead can craft. What can be said is that Hhymn have created a sound that is theirs. A sound that is invitingly warm yet laced with an open tenderness. A sound that is minimalistic, where a simple canvas is answered only by an overspill of rich musical textures. A sound that is to be praised, a hymn for all to enjoy."
