Stand Up & Stand Out: HUSH HUSH NOISE

James Kasper takes a look at our music scene and the up and coming bands we have to check out.

STAND UP AND STAND OUT: HUSH HUSH NOISE

“Find something that will make you feel like everyday’s too short

We’re only here for a little while, you’d better make your mark”

– Hayden, “Don’t Get Down”

What stands out about HUSH HUSH NOISE:

HUSH HUSH NOISE, fronted by Lily Fawn (of Hank & Lily) showcases her distinct vocals. Lily’s presence in itself is a stand-out factor. Add the tasty guitar textures and programming of the understated Eric Hogg (Limestone, Zephyr Nova), and a lethal hybrid emerges. What is equally fascinating about this act is that the same line-up comprises a completely different act called SONGS FROM THE BLACK LODGE, which reimagines soundtrack material from the 1990s David Lynch/Mark Frost surrealistic TV serial drama Twin Peaks, with some original Peak-esque compositions thrown in for good measure. HUSH HUSH NOISE is scheduled to release their debut album in June. Their debut single “Animals Grow Horns” can be heard on their bandcamp page.

Lily Fawn: vocals, cymbals

Eric Hogg: guitar, harmonies, programming
