Premiere: Hyde & Beast – ‘Keep Moving’

Interactive album stream...

There’s an old saying that the minute the drummer starts writing songs, then a band should call it quits.

But Hyde & Beast started primarily because two drummers started writing their own material. Dave Hyde (of Futureheads fame) and Neil Bassett (of Golden Virgins) paired up a couple of years back to work on a joint album, released under the snappy Hyde & Beast moniker.

Well received, the two took time out earlier this year to complete a follow up. ‘Keep Moving’ was recorded at the room3recordingstudio in Sunderland, and it’s a neat step forwards from the duo.

At times blissful and almost psychedelia, at others harsh and near post-punk in tone, ‘Keep Moving’ is a diverse collection which more than lives up to its title.

Out on August 4th, you can pre-order the album HERE.

Before then, though, Clash is able to bring you an exclusive album stream.
