Get The Heebie Jeebies
Rotherham’s own hot boy trio The Heebie Jeebies, make their recorded debut with single Misery Guts on August 10 on the back of their first festival bow at Glastonbury.
Owen, Del and Thom, who collectively indulge in “Fruity Beefheart beats, calypso rhythms and west coast noise flex, caressed with a poetic social panorama”, formed at Sheffield Institute Of Arts and imbue a colourful charm and style that embraces modern insecurities with an ‘end of the rainbow’ mentality. Their influences vary from Trad African & tribal Kalimba songs to post punk ‘Industrial’, with melodic nods to boozy Britpop soirees and Welsh Psych; a light hearted approach to narratives of cultural indecency. A DIY aesthetic and a veritable smorgasbord of ideas permeate everything they do, from art directing their photo shoots, to designing artwork and beyond. They’ll be showing off their origami skills for the packaging on the new single. Their endearingly shambolic live shows can’t disguise some seriously accomplished musicianship. Self-taught they might be, but these boys know their chops.
