Woman’s Hour are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focused news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with Tate and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. Their 360º approach is closer to the art / music crossover of acts such as Throbbing Gristle, Yoko Ono or Factory Floor than most of this year’s indie hopes.

Their debut album ‘Conversations’ displays the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of Summer-defining indie pop. Their music - as poignantly personal as pop gets - has a rare singularity and purpose.
