The Quote: “This is one of those treasures that will be played to death, for a good reason. It will become as much a part of your life as your record collection.”
Monefa Walker www.thezineuk/single-post/485Calbum

The Truth: 485C are very much five rock’n’rolling dreamers lurking in east London. They consist of Adam Hume (vocals), Dom Watson (guitar / vocals), Lucas Hunt (drums), Rory McGowan (guitar / occasional vocals) and Sam Watkins (bass / occasional vocals). ‘485C’ is their debut album. It was produced by Paul Tipler at Unit 13 Studios in the shadow of Millwall's football ground and features 13 tracks of fizzingly debonair alternative rock delights, as you may expect from a band once cheerily described as “The Strokes stroking The Family Cat”.

'Hoppy' is 485C’s fifth single – released on April 13th - and shows a spacier side to the quintet, snaking in on a slinky bassline and laying out some sublimely laidback melodies which are interrupted by the odd defiant outburst of ragged guitars. ‘Hoppy’ follows the previous singular sonic delights of 'She'll Lie', ‘Oh Rhianna’, 'Strange Medicine', 'Better The Man' and 2018's New Year revelation 'Kapow!', specialist radio smashes all, all present on ‘485C’, and proof positive that 485C know their way around a sub-three minute indie tubthumper.

But consider also that singer Adam explains that: "'Hoppy' is a totalitarian suicide note," and it becomes apparent there is something much more to 485C than just wanting to sound good on the dancefloor. Indeed, ‘Hoppy’ is just the tip of the artistic iceberg as the genteel touch of ‘The Fountain’, thee hypnotic bendiness of ‘Turn The Lights Off’ and the lovely jangling surges of ‘Control’ all shine a light on a louchely instinctive collective, armed occasionally with added sad trumpets. In short: it's a proper debut album by a properly creative band, and it sounds utterly excellent.

Having played consistently across London and its satellites in the company of The Rifles, The Blinders, The Sherlocks, John Kennedy, Abbie McCarthy and many more, the 485C live act has developed into an intricate combination of guitar wizardry and a casually audacious stage presence, as evinced by their monumental mid-March headline show at the Old Blue Last. Come get intimate with that intricacy at these shows here:
