Hymns, or †HYMNS†, is a two-piece Rock band based around the Midlands. The duo, composed by ex-Blakfish Samuel Manwille and Peter Reisner make some classical-influenced garage rock, as the debut album ‘Contrary Virtues’ exemplifies (out via Big Scary Monsters and Function Records). You can get the free track ‘Miracles’ via Hymns’ bandcamp.
Pete: I’m a musical expeditionary…no past – only the present. I’m from a small town, the land ravaged by the mines. I enjoy literature and music by Woody Guthrie. I play in loads of bands, and I’m trying my absolute best to finish my degree.
