Hoppy - 485C
485C
"Hoppy"

Digital Single
[ ning389 ]


more info
485C are very much five rockínírolling 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). 'Hoppy' is their fifth single and shows a spacier side to the quintet
slinking in on a louche bassline and laying out some sublimely laidback melodies which are interrupted by the odd defiant outburst of ragged guitars. 'Hoppy' really is heaps of Eastertime fun. Or is it?

"Hoppy is a totalitarian suicide note
" observes singer Adam. "It is an observation - or educated guess - at the camaraderie and intensive love that dwells within the most heinous of groups and ideologies. The song's core is built on the premise that there is a inevitable end/death wish to such groups
that the participants readily accept. The string of insanity that instigates such things can only get longer as time goes on
leading to one end. 'How many days before we go under
the fingers of feline foes may contend our prayers'."

'Hoppy' is the fifth single from 485C following the singular sonic delights of 'She'll Lie'
'Strange Medicine'
'Better The Man' and 2018's New Year revelation 'Kapow!'. Much like 'Hoppy' a selection of those tracks will be appearing on 485C's imminent debut album
the craftily-titled '485C'
due for release on the panda on April 27th. '485C' 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. 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 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:
