Hydrocele Release New Single “Ready When You Are”

A year ago the newly formed HYDROCELE, stormed onto the music scene with “The Shapeshifter” and since then they have continued to write and record at an incredible rate, they are more productive than a Chinese Noodle Factory.

Now following hot on the heels of “their widely acclaimed previous singles The Shapeshifter”, “Content With Concise”, “What You Looking At, and most recentlyBroken Truth & Honesty” –  the HYDROCELE  boys have delivered another massive tune and their most popular track at their live shows “READY WHEN YOU ARE”. As an added bonus/twist Producer PETE DOWSETT enlisted the assistance of the string Ensemble that works with a certain person by the name of MAX MARTIN, who some people may have heard of!

Like their live shows the boys playing is tighter than a pair of rusted nuts as they continue their onward ascent to nationwide acclaim. The band consists of Freddie Wortley, 18 (lead vocals and guitar), Neemah Wright, 20 (guitar), Jonny Faires, 19 (bass- never accept a lift from him!) and Ian Wilson, 19 (drum skin destroyer).  

Lead singer, guitarist and song writer Freddie gives a bit of a background to HYDROCELE;

We met at college, ACM (The Academy of Contemporary Music) in Guildford and through a producer.  We were all playing in different bands and kept crossing paths; we quickly realised we had similar tastes and ambitions in music, but most importantly enjoyed working together.

Obviously Pop and Rock have certain elements that are pretty rigid and structured. We try to adhere to certain elements for our music to have a mainstream appeal but we also want our music to have longevity. We want to showcase our skill and the years of practice we have put into our respective crafts. Music wouldnt be what it is without the emotion that this incorporates. We think that both are very important. Listening to music produced now is crucial to staying relevant but keeping in touch with your influences is just as beneficial. As we are seeing now with a lot of Pop tunes, sometimes you have to go back to go forward.

As a band, we have a very diverse range of influences. Although we overlappin a lot of areas, we each have influences that explore very different corners of the musical universe. MacDemarco, The Smiths, Nothing But Thieves, Gregory Porter, Slaves, The Strokes, Foals, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Olatunji are but a few examples.

Ready When You Are will be released this month on Incite Entertainment, look out for the video which will show HYDROCELE at their best performing LIVE at KOKO.
