Hatcham Social

AN INTRODUCTION TO HATCHAM SOCIAL

by Alexandra McLoughli.



Hatcham Social are a trio formed in New Cross, London. They are composed of brothers Toby and Finnigan and their friend Dave. Although they were formed in 2006, their influences are from indie pop bands from the 80s and 60s such as The Pastels, Orange Juice, and Josef K, as well as post-punk and shoegaze bands such as The Jesus & Mary Chain and The Fall.

AN INTRODUCTION TO HATCHAM SOCIAL

by Alexandra McLoughli.



Hatcham Social are a trio formed in New Cross, London. They are composed of brothers Toby and Finnigan and their friend Dave. Although they were formed in 2006, their influences are from indie pop bands from the 80s and 60s such as The Pastels, Orange Juice, and Josef K, as well as post-punk and shoegaze bands such as The Jesus & Mary Chain and The Fall.

Most fans of Indie music however will find that these guys sound quite different from any band out there as their music has a certain consistency on the beat which produces a nostalgic happy vibe. Not surprisingly the group has been welcomed by various music critics with some great remarks, The Guardian for example described them as ‘irresistible’ whilst Alan McGee (founder of Creation Records who also signed Oasis and managed the Libertines) once described them as ‘a wonderful pop group with the world’s coolest Drummer‘.

There is something special in the way Finnigan hits those drums, he actually manages to hit them pretty close to dead centre with a sharp rap. In the music business this is something that only the genius can do.

As for the vocals, the charismatic Lead Singer, Toby, has an unusual melodic tone to his voice which gives an incredible smooth sound to their music and yet uplifting.

The Bassist Dave has a pretty tricky way of combining the sound of his bass to Toby’s guitar. Unlike most bass players that have pitch problems in the upper positions, Dave has a convincing technique that stops from that to happen which proves him to be a talented musician.

In a whole, the three band members work as a unit so they all share the same energy that rev up the crowd. They are obsessed with getting the crowd to go mad and yet they have the ability of keeping everyone in calm mood however hyper they might be. It is like being in “limbo” and yet thoroughly fun to watch.

Finally, their debut album will be out soon as according to a blog in the band’s myspace they have been busy working with Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer recording tracks. So watch this space.

Check out the band’s Myspace and listen to some tracks on.
