Feature Scene: Video Premier – HUSSY HICKS’s hauntingly beautiful SILENCE CREEPING

What’s My Scene magazine is proud to present the video premier of Hussy Hick’s new single, Silence Creeping.

Although they’ve been playing together since 2005, February 2018 marks ten years since Gold Coast act Hussy Hicks released their first album and undertook their first National Tour. It’s been an amazing decade with the release of five full length albums, many circumnavigations of the globe, playing countless gigs in the US and Europe as well as pretty much every festival and town in Australia.

To celebrate this landmark the girls are starting their National Single Release Tour in WA and then across the East Coast for a string of gigs from the 17th February and stretching all the way into June.

New Release –

SILENCE CREEPING ~ released March 2nd
The new Single and accompanying Video was a track that really took it’s sweet time coming, it sat in a lyric book for a good three years before it was ready to be called a song and not just a string of words on paper. It has a haunting but resolute melody that musically reflects the torment depicted lyrically, the desperate inability to get out of your own head, your own prison of mental suffering.

It was initially recorded in it’s infant stages, just one verse and chorus, and then left with London producer Raphael White for several months. It took form under his guidance until the Hussies returned to the studio and together the trio finalised the tracking and solidified the direction that Silence Creeping would take.
The result is a song that pays tribute to Hussy Hicks live sound and yet builds something larger, layers of vocal harmonies and over driven guitars, building to a frenzy until it finally drops off to a shattered vocal finish.
The single is from the girls current full length offering, On the Boundaries. A departure from their trademark live recordings, this album sees the Hussy Hicks experiment with their sound and production to create something familiar yet fresh.
“It’s not a folk album, its not a blues album, itsnot an alt-country album but it still has bits of all our influences
wrapped up in there and we’re super happy with the result.”
