Playing: This Feeling w/ Pirate Studios + Scotts Stage

Hourglvss, who now reside in the creatively eccentric seaside city of Brighton, is a project created and developed by Northern musicians Katie Benbow and Sophie May WIlliams. The duo found a creative ally in collaborator Ben Christophers, best known for his work with Bat For Lashes and Francoise Hardy who their first single ‘Johnny’ was written and produced alongside, with the final mix coming from Italian wizard and calibro35 member Tommaso Colliva. Whether it be in the studio, Katie’s gypsy vintage caravan where she makes handmade bohemian clothing or Sophie’s gothic everything must be velvet bedroom, where she churns out interviews and features as part of her Music Journalism degree, the duo build their catalogue of songs, dramatic tales of love and storytelling, transversing through Pop and Clubland. Expect a cauldron of fabulous fashion, infectious songs, mesmerising vocals and perhaps a 2019 version of Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
