Introducing :: BDRMM
Words: Chloe Louise
If you like slow, dreamy and hazy vibes, you’ll absolutely love Hull-based BDRMM's (pronounced 'bedroom') - aka Ryan Smith - new single ‘Everything’.
Having already been compared to the likes of bands such as Blood Orange and Beach Fossils, BDRMM is already working his way up the indie charts. His sound can only be described as serene and dreamy, with hints of psych and orchestral elements.
‘Everything’ is the lead single released ahead of upcoming debut EP ‘CRIKE’. The interesting thing about this single is that it was released on an iPhone, but all elements of the song are so clear and crisp that it is almost impossible to tell. The ghost-like vocals and instrumentation make the single haunting and eerie, but in a very light-hearted way, and whilst listening to the track, you feel like you’re within it, moving with all the dreamy and otherworld instrumentals. It can only be described as hauntingly beautiful.
Without giving too much away, ‘CRIKE’ continues on that vibe. The entire EP takes you on a journey. Smith's music makes you feel like you’re floating through another world in a serene yet fun way. I would highly recommend keeping an eye on BDRMM, as I have a strong feeling this EP will be his chance to burst on to the indie scene, as his sound is unique and uncommon, but so easy to get along with.
