Notice: We are truly shocked and saddened to hear the awful news this morning that Her's have died in a car accident along with their tour manager in the US on their latest tour. Audun and Stephen were two of the nicest guys we’ve had in session for Selector Radio - our thoughts are with their friends, family and fans.
The seeds of Her’s have well and truly rooted themselves in Liverpool, UK. Originally a meeting of minds between Norway’s Audun Laading and Barrow-born Stephen Fitzpatrick, Her’s forged a strong chemical bond through a mutual love of off-kilter humour and outsider art.
Having clocked over one million streams between the two tracks on their debut single ‘Dorothy’ and ‘What Once Was’, and after following it up with the lackadaisical thrift-store humour of their sun-bleached single ‘Marcel’ and the exhilarating surf romp of ‘Speed Racer’, Her’s released a rollicking document of their infant career so far in 'Songs of Her’s', a collection of all their recorded output to date.
As well as recent support tours with Wild Nothing and Dutch Uncles, Her's greatly impressed at six SXSW showcases and returned to accompany Happyness on their UK tour.
These outsiders are leaving a trail of bleeding hearts and dropped jaws. At this rate, 2017 is theirs.
