About bdrmm

bdrmm are a four-piece band based in Hull and Leeds.

Musically, there are nods to The Cure, Deerhunter and DIIV,  while the band reference RIDE and Radiohead. There are  also echoes of krautrock and post-punk, from The  Chameleons to Protomartyr, plus the proto-shoegaze of the  Pale Saints’ ‘The Comforts Of Madness’. 

After forming in 2016, the band played incessantly,  supporting the likes of Fat White Family, Her’s and Viagra  Boys. Word of mouth about the band’s live shows quickly  grew and their early releases were covered by the likes of  So Young and The Line Of Best Fit. When Steve Lamacq  played them on his late-night Recommends show on BBC  Radio 6 Music, Sonic Cathedral were listening. The label  reissued the early single ‘C:U’ on a 7” as part of their Singles  Club and followed it with the compilation EP, ‘If Not,  When?’, both of which sold out and won over legions of new  fans – not least Lauren Laverne, Huw Stephens and John  Kennedy. 

They recorded their critically acclaimed and almost self titled 10-track debut album ‘Bedroom’ at the end of 2019 at  The Nave studio in Leeds with Alex Greaves (Working Mens  Club, Bo Ningen) and it was mastered in Brooklyn by Heba  Kadry (Slowdive, Beach House). Released in July, 2020, it  was a hugely accomplished debut and a real step up from  their early singles, both sonically and lyrically; words such  as “It’s not that I didn’t try and keep my shit together / This  whole ordeal just took over” (from the song ‘Gush’) just  seemed to fit perfectly with the times and spoke to a  pandemic-weary crowd. 

As a result, ‘Bedroom’ became one of the underground hits  of lockdown, according to The Guardian, with rave reviews  everywhere from blogs to broadsheets. After racking up  plays, selling out pressing after pressing and entering the  Official UK Charts on three separate occasions, it ended up  in Rough Trade’s Top 10 albums of 2020.
