Artist Info

Hot Silk Pockets

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Hot Silk Pockets come from Glasgow, Southend, South Wales, Yorkshire and Reading, though it was the latter province where the band formed, half an hour or so’s train ride from London Paddington. Coming together initially to play “parties in their shed”, the quartet slogged hard, graduated to living rooms and here they are now, nestling in our DiScover Monthly. The band take their name from fist-warming camping equipment and were first recommended to me by Wesley Patrick Gonzalez of Stolen Recordings shipmates Let’s Wrestle. ‘What’s the Matter’ is their finest moment to date – you wonder if there isn’t something in the etiquette and blood of this kind of music, which lands a touch closer to C81 than it does to C86, that is able to draw out the one truly great pop song within anyone who dares saunter toward it. If so, theirs is already written, a dual-vocalled effort that reverberates tenderly like if Television Personalities wrote ‘Time After Time’. Other tracks suggest there might be a lot more to come from Hot Silk Pockets though, so for now our toasty fingers remain anxiously x’d. KK- Drowned In Sound
