bdrmm share new single ‘Pulling Stitches’

By Levi Mulholland

Hull shoegaze quartet bdrmm share new single ‘Pulling Stitches’ from their upcoming album I Don’t Know, out June 30th.

Teasing the follow up to 2020’s widely praised Bedroom, bdrmm share ‘Pulling Stitches’, the third single from their upcoming full length I Don’t Know, set to be released on Mogwai’s Rock Action this June. Commenting on ‘Pulling Stitches’, the band’s Ryan Smith says “I remember the exact day that we wrote this track. We were in the practise room, and I just started playing the first two chords, incorporating the bend as if I was literally winking at Kevin Shields, and Conor just looked at me like, “This is the one”. I think we finished the track on that day. It’s amazing when those moments happen, and it reminds you of why you do this. It’s so obviously the shoegaze adoration within us.”

Having received praise from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Mojo and NME, the band have quickly risen to high status amongst the modern shoegaze community. Emerging from the hazy days of lockdown, Bedroom became an instant essential in the catalogue of contemporary shoegaze, setting the band on course for a cult following. Now the band look to roam somewhat from their genre origins to see what can be salvaged and adapted from other influences. The band signpost artists such as Radiohead, The Cure, Brian Eno and even Erik Satie, the minimalist composer.

Singer-guitarist Ryan Smith elaborates “We’re still coming from the same place, but the influences have got much broader,” and his younger brother Jordan (bass, keyboards) exploring the work of Steve Reich and Boards of Canada, stating “A lot of it is just us gaining confidence, and also not wanting to retread old ground. We’d made the guitar record. So we were thinking, ‘What else can we do?’”
