Band of the Week: Hjeartzz

Local fuzz-pop/punk band Hjeartzz on shmuFM

This week's Band of the Week on shmuFM is Hjeartzz - you can hear them live on the Band of the Week Show on Monday the 17th of August from 8-10pm. You'll hear Hjeartzz tracks, you'll hear stories of their recent tour with Milwalkie, you'll find out about what inspires Hjeartzz, and even where the name comes from. It's pronounced Hearts, by the way,

Hjeartzz are bedroom stars from a pop-geek universe, mixing schoolboy earnestness with a playful, bratty directness, and the rebellious innocence of primitive, fuzzy pop.

Their self-titled debut was written and recorded in Paris during two unbelievably hot weeks in August 2012 and polished up in Paris, New York and Aberdeen, with the help of such modern wizardry as Skype and Dropbox.

Featuring an open-door policy towards live performances - with all of the music composed by one man – things are always varied and fresh. Hjeartzz are a curiously misplaced fragment of a once-booming International Pop Underground. Just back from their co-headline tour with German indie-rockers Milwalkie, Hjeartzz have plenty of new tracks ready for your ears!

You can hear any of Hjeartzz' tracks on any of our live shows by getting in contact with the studio on 01224 483413, by texting 60300 (type SHMU, leave a space and then your message) or by emailing

The Band Of The Week Show is repeated every Friday at midnight until 2am on 99.8FM, and you can listen to the show here on our website using the live stream or Listen Again feature.
