With comparisons to bands like DIIVBeach FossilsDeerhunterThe CureRadiohead, and Ride, I think the best descriptor for the band could be something like: “BDRMM: Recommended if you like good music.” In all seriousness, though, BDRMM frontman Ryan Smith started writing his early material solo in his bedroom. Smith then added his brother Jordan on bass, Joe Vickers on guitar, Danny Hull on synths, and Luke Irvin on drums. This current five-piece British band with an ear for atmospheric dream-pop is one of THE bands to watch in 2020.

All BDRMM physical product has been selling out online as quickly as it can be produced. To my ear, the ten tracks on Bedroom draw inspiration from all the best elements of the shoegazer bands dominating the UK alternative scene from 1990-1993. Anyone into shoegazer will love this record a minute into “Momo,” the first track on the album. Crank it up and let that hair fall forward over your eyes!!

We’re delighted to announce our new 7-track EP, ‘the bedroom tapes’ out on Sonic Cathedral on white 12” vinyl and black cassette, released on october 23rd. The five-piece guitar driven rockers bdrmm blend nineties inspired songcraft and lush contemporary production to create an exhilarating blend of shoegaze, dream-pop and new wave. The second single taken from bdrmm’s debut album ‘Bedroom’.


Speaking on July release A Reason To Celebrate, bdrmm’s Ryan Smith explains: ‘The lyrics come from a place of realisation and understanding. It’s a battle between what you want and what you need to do. It’s about proudly, yet stupidly, letting go – and the voice in your head giving you all the different reasons why you should.’ This features 4 stripped down versions of previous releases that were recorded during lockdown between Ryan & Jordan, they are the most natural and raw versions of themselves they possibly can be, which we felt was fitting for the current situation,

On the b-side, we have included all the remixes that we have been blessed with by some outstanding artists, including Andy Bell, DITZ and International Teachers of Pop.

the artwork, as always (col), is a gorgeous creation from our very own jordan!
