Hedon is a five-piece band based in southern England who write dramatic, layered and often chillingly beautiful rock songs. A mix of weird times, dark ballads and direct anthems, all their songs possess memorable melodies and many instant hooks.
If Nick Cave liked The Cure, REM and Radiohead, then... Hedon are aged 19-23 and combine instantly memorable choruses with intricately layered soundscapes and tightly woven rhythmics.
This history of Hedon reads more like a soap opera than biog: deceit, love affairs, break-ups of long-standing relationships, not to mention break-ins and nights in cells! But all you need to hear is their challenging and intelligent music and their free monthly club:HEDONISTIC night.
Friday 17 June clubHEDONISTIC @ Islington Bar Academy, featuring The Pippettes and Dover
