Holy Youth Movement ( HYM ) are a 5 piece band hailing from Bristol, consisting of Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards and Vocals. Their sound is a heavy mix of Rock n Roll and Electronica fuelledby Dance Floor Rhythms, driving Bass and a huge wall of Synthesizers and Guitar, all topped off with soaring anthemic Vocals and melodies.
Their love of Rock n Roll and bands like Primal Scream, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Stooges as well as being hugefans of Dance Music and artists like The Chemical Brothers & Underworld lead them to experiment with the task of combining those 2 genres.
After writing songs & developing their new sound they approached legendary Producer Jagz Kooner (who has worked with the likes of Primal Scream, Kasabian, Oasis as well as a host of Dance luminairies such as Andrew Weatherall, The Sabres Of Paradise & Soulwax ) to take care of production duties on all their songs. Jagz was instantly hooked after hearing the album demos
and totally blown away when he saw the band in rehearsals. He commented that they were one of the best live bands he’d ever seen and said the music was the perfect amalgamation of what he best described as “Electronic Rock n Roll”.
So far H.Y.M have self funded and released 4 songs of which 2 have had sporadic plays on RadioX. John Kennedy made their last single ” Better Together” an Exposure Hot One on his show on Radio X as well. They have just completed their debutE.P which is scheduled for release in early 2024. Having previously Supported Primal Scream (on their Maximum Rock n Roll tour) as well as The Dandy Warhols and a string of festival performances including Glastonbury, Truck Fest and Beautiful Days (where they were considered to be 1 of the high lights of the entire weekend) Holy Youth Movement shows are a jaw dropping live experience not to be missed!
