The Hubbards continue from strength to strength notching yet another slick hit with “Your Love, Your Love, (Your Love)”

The foursome from Hull are breathing new life into the 90’s era slacker pop and putting and entirely new face upon a well loved sound. The Hubbards are surfing a wave of success, hanging high on the back end of the superb double A side ‘BodyConfident/Easy Go they have no signs of slowing down. The Hubbards have already gained a broad spectrum of recognition, they have supported artists such as Foals and The 1975 to name but a few. Their dedicated fan base were given a treat when The Hubbards received the nod for last years Radio 1’s Big Weekend. The Hubbards can also boast well received sets at last years Great Escape and Dot To Dot festivals.

The Hubbards have managed to develop a sound combining the indie pop of the 90’s with present day ideals befriending a new nation of the young and teasing them into the music that set summers especially alive during the 90’s. Bands such as Blur immediately come to mind, however The Hubbards have managed to bridge the gulf between young and old dissecting the genre superbly and their new track ‘Your Love, Your Love, (Your Love)’ is another perfect example of this. Digging around the indie pop scene but adapting the sound to suit hipsters and slackers alike has seen The Hubbards music play on Radio 1 and 6Music. Their modern take on the 90’s genre has seen their single ‘Cold Cut’ played on Made in Chelsea.

The Hubbards have taken a big step forward in the bands development with the single ‘Your Love, Your Love, Your Love’ teasingly striding them into new territory. The video that accompanies the track is great and has a raw personal feel to it giving the watcher the air of attachment to the band. The track itself is playfully sung yet well written, a flow of idiosyncratic guitar thrums as a constant through the track etching the bands unique signature all over it. In short ‘Your Love, Your Love, (Your Love) is a well cultured and sculptured revival of a ground breaking sound but with a much needed twist of modern life rolled in.
