Sheffield’s The Hosts are set to release their debut album Softly, Softly via fierce panda next Monday (10 Feb). Led by Tom Hogg, the frontman of garage rock nearlymen Hoggboy, The Hosts’ album smoulders with the lush romanticism of Roy Orbison, who’s ‘In Dreams’ appears as the one non-original song here.
Lead single ‘September Song’ (out Monday 17 Feb), a Q Track of the Day, is currently riding high on the playlists of both BBC 6 Music and Radio 2.
The band have performed live in support of Richard Hawley, Paul Weller, The Walkmen and Cold War Kids, amongst many others.
