WOMAN'S HOUR

Woman's Hour are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based swoon-pop four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focussed news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with TATE and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. On their excellent debut album 'Conversations', this has the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of summer-defining indie pop. Pay attention now, or regret it later.

RECORD STORE DAY // Woman’s Hour Release ‘Dancing in the Dark’ 12″ On Record Store Day Via Best Fit Recordings

Woman’s Hour are happy to announce the official release of their much loved cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ on Record Store Day! For some, this inimitable rendition will have been the first time they were introduced to the band’s minimalist, emotionally charged sound before the release of their critically acclaimed debut Conversations last year. Since then, the track has become a fan favorite and staple on their live set – it seems only right that track is released from the impalpability of the internet, to a tangible 12″ on a day that honors physical music. Listen to lead track “Dancing in the Darkabove or on SoundCloud.

London based label Best Fit Recordings will be releasing 500 copies of the 12″ on April 18, 2015. The 12″ will also feature previously unreleased tracks “Sea of Silence” and “The Shipping Forecast”.

WATCH // Woman’s Hour Share “Devotion” Video Dir. By Weronika Tofilska Via Dazed

Woman’s Hour return in 2015 with amnother beautiful black and white, minimalistic video for the song “Devotion” off their serene SC debut album Conversations out last year. You can watch the twin filled video directed by Weronika Tofilska above or here on Youtube / Dazed.

Here’s Fiona Burgess with more behind the video:
‘We talked a lot about the idea of closeness, trust and dependency, and felt that using siblings was the most natural way of communicating this…as well as looking identical, the twins in our video have a loyalty to each other that is so constant throughout their lives that it’s unlike any other relationship. We were interested in how the visuals could compliment this theme, using minimal props and staging in order to make the focus on the subjects. They are almost like still life portraits, their movements are subtle so that the viewers focus is on the tinniest movements… it’s often the smallest gestures that speak volumes”
