Merging a wall of noise with a keen ear for melody, La Bête Blooms have grown from their shoegaze, reverb-drenched beginnings to become a force of guitar-driven pop. With Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson and Tom Ravenscroft championing the birth of a more aggressive sound, Laverne summed up the bands transition perfectly: “Think Slowdive meeting Pixies, thrown in with a bit of Kurt Cobain’s Incesticide guitar and you pretty much have it”.

I Know It’s Nothing is an exercise in catharsis with a firmly set jaw and an ‘us against the world’ mentality.  The band’s desire to prove their worth with a unique take on life up north echoes their home city of Hull’s sentiments. La Bête Blooms are entwined with the region’s hard work to prove preconceptions wrong, and their name, created in a similar way to Bowie’s renowned song-writing ‘cut up’ method, translates as ‘The Beast Blooms’.

Frontman Daniel Mawer tells us what the EP is about: “I Know It’s Nothing is a collection of songs covering anxiety, depression, northern defiance and Hull as City of Culture! Making this EP was really cathartic and our favourite work to date,
