Hideous Towns is a Melbourne based band that has been independently active since 2013. With their winning combination of chiming gazed-out guitars, dynamic female vocals and buoyant, no-frills drum propulsion, Hideous Towns have nonchalantly secured a stronghold on the world’s tuned-in dream-pop fans.

They self recorded and released their first single ‘Joy/Don’t Look Up’ in April 2014, performing extensively throughout 2014. The group then released a debut EP earning themselves a reputation as a notable live act.

In August 2015 they toured nationally with their single ‘Heart Attack’ released through Melbourne’s Lost And Lonesome Records. After receiving positive reviews from local community radio and Triple J, Hideous Towns went about recording their Debut Album.  The album was recorded by Matthew Hosking in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne and the inner northern suburb of Northcote over the summer of 2015/16. Since then Hideous Towns have released two singles from the upcoming debut ‘Don’t Forget’ which also a music video was created by James Thomson (Contrast) and was played on Rage in the following weeks of release. Their most recent release ‘Wake Us’ shows their softer side musically and was well received by community radio stations nationally.In the coming months of 2016, Hideous Towns will release their Debut Album ‘Disquiet Living’.
