New Video: Introducing the Swaggering Badassery of Worcester UK’s HVMM

Comprised of Any Teece (vocals, guitar), Ebony Clay (lead guitar), Jack Timmis (bass) and Samuel Jenkins (drums), the Worcester, UK-based indie rock quartet HVMM have developed a reputation across the UK’s West Midlands for an overall aesthetic that draws from several disparate sources simultaneously — on stage and in press photos, members of the band dress in an anachronistic, Victorian era-like clothing while playing brawny yet off-time, power chord-based riffs reminiscent of Led Zeppelin 1 and Led Zeppelin IV paired with angular bass chords and darkly seductive and menacing lyrics and anthemic hooks reminiscent of The Doors‘ “Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar),” Nick Cave, and The Amazing Snakeheads as you’ll hear on the band’s latest single “Lacerate.” And as a result, the song possess a decadently sleazy, swaggering strut perfect for late night misadventures, shenanigans and shit-starting.

The recently released video for the song further emphasizes the song’s brooding nature while nodding at the work of O. Henry, Edgar Allan Poe and others, but with a hyper modern flare.
