Sydney rock powerhouse The Hideaways have, in the short time they’ve been making music together, only travelled from strength-to-strength. They’re determined to ascend straight to the top; the four-piece are already playing to full crowds of fans despite not even having released their freshman EP.
Building on the success of their debut singles, The Hideaways return with their crowd-pleasing banger Heterochromia, a high-energy single doused in heartbreak.
With Heterochromia, Sydney powerhouse The Hideaways are heading straight to the top, bypassing the awkward middle-ground that happens to swallow so many musicians in their genre.
Taken from the band’s debut EP, Heterochromia balances heavily distorted guitars and heartfelt lyrics to deliver another high-energy single that is sure to get crowds pumping. The Hideaways skilfully reference a strong mix of both their rock and pop influences; taking inspiration from bands like The Doors, The 1975 and Catfish and The Bottlemen, the band have striven for a strong emphasis on crowd reaction.
The song appeals to the masses in its universality; its lyrics detail the accompanying guilt when the feelings of another cannot be reciprocated. The track is a strong example of contemporary rock music; the guitars are blazing, doused over a strong and punchy rhythm section. Heterochromia’s vocals and lyrics make the song pop; the heaving crooning of the verses perfectly segues into the powerful chorus, divulging a tale of unrequited love.
The track’s accompanying video captures both the essence of their live show and ties itself back to the premise of the song. The Hideaways were lucky enough to score the talent of Gary Deans (Breakaway Television) and cameraman Borce Damcevski (8 Days a Week Productions) to help us produce the glossy and exciting final product.
The Hideaways have big plans for 2019. Last year saw the outfit play to packed houses at Frankie’s in Sydney and appear on stage at a bustling Surry Hill’s festival. 2018 also saw the band share stages with local favourites The Lulu Raes, Letters to Lions, Johnny Hunter, DOKO and The Deep Blue. The year ahead will see The Hideaways launch brand new music, followed by an extensive and exciting tour along the East Coast.
Catch The Hideaways live at The Factory Theatre in Sydney on March 1st. Tickets and info here.
