The Hummingbirds, E.P. Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

The sheer magnetism that runs through The Hummingbirds, whether in their live sets which sets the pulses racing as if being hooked up to the national grid or in the studio recordings which just seem to get better and better, certainly marks them out as being part of the new breed, the surging confidence in music from Merseyside.

Their latest self-titled E.P. release epitomizes this and once more the band has come up with a set of music which has been strung together in timeless fashion and made to resemble a piece of work that gets pawed at, eyes glowing with anticipation as the prospect of each song coming through the speakers is nothing short of tantalising.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

If 2012 was a year that for The Hummingbirds was unreal and full of exciting times then 2013 has surely already surpassed that and made the coming year so full of expectation and burgeoning exhilaration. Already tipped as one to watch by the Liverpool Music Awards, the band have recently performed at The Alarm’s famous Gathering in deepest North Wales and now they have kicked off March by opening for the Welsh Punk Rockers at the o2 Academy in their home town.
