After years of playing in different bands, working on records with David Gray, Caro and more, sharing studios with members of Elbow, Hugo M. Hardy’s latest musical incarnation is an exploration to the core of his evocative songwriting. After losing loved ones, and moving away from a familiar home, Hugo locked himself away in the French Alps with nothing but a guitar, a laptop, and music from Kanye, Sufjan Stevens and James Blake. By the time he brought himself back to the UK, he realised that he had written and recorded his debut album. A combination of off kilter, acoustic and electronic production alongside thought-provoking, introspective lyrics create an atmosphere that has been likened to Elliott Smith, Bon Iver and The Microphones.
