Boston indie-pop quintet The Hush Now have made an impression on music critics and fans by wedding the “lush sugar-spun melodies of shoegaze’s dreamy heyday” to “the hooky muscle of bands like Guided by Voices and Built To Spill” as one critic put it. The band’s self-titled debut, released last October, climbed independent radio top 100 charts and drew comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, Guided By Voices, Poole, and The Ocean Blue, among others. Blog buzz and radio play by legendary BBC 6 DJ Steve Lamacq further fueled interest in the band, who had yet to even play their first gig.
