Set to make waves in the world of indie this year are young Hull four-piece The Hubbards. With an intriguing blend of intricate guitars and rousing vocal harmonies, the future looks set to be bright for the unassuming quartet. Friends since their school days, the band are part of a thriving underground music scene from the Yorkshire city and rehearse at the home of fellow Hull-heroes, The Paddingtons. With lyrics that reflect a maturity far beyond their years, The Hubbards have already built themselves a loyal fanbase and gained reputation as a fine live act, having supported bands such as The Crookes, Little Comets and Foals.
