Let us introduce you to a local band and friends of Superdry, Hermes. We spent a morning with the Gloucestershire based band, where we invited them to our photographic studio for a few snaps before they become fully immersed in the studio recording of their new material.
Hermes is made up of members, Tom, 22, James, 18 and Greg, 20. A young band who have been lucky enough to see some of their tracks produced by Sean Genockey who’s worked with the likes of The Futureheads and Manic Street Preaches. The trio, who cite their influences from Smashing Pumpkins to The Beatles, are a refreshing bunch who are avid fans of music from all genres. As a whole, the band describe their sound as ‘indie/rock with elements of experimental’.
They have been busy gigging the London circuit along with small pubs in Gloucestershire. The London gigs have been a turning point for the band, who managed to grab the attention of MTV whilst playing at Punk in Soho. Additionally, there is potential to go out to Chicago later in the year! Not bad for a fairly new band who’s newest member is drummer, Greg, who joined in November.
Donning our classic Superdry checked and denim shirts, they raved about the great fit and also favoured our new super series hi top footwear – beautifully modelled by the boys in the photo!
A CGI music video for the bands newest single, Jack, is scheduled to be released soon, stay tuned on their Myspace page for all the latest!
