Hive Tressman (UK)
Hailing all the way from Bulgaria, Hive Tressman captures a global and unique sound that sets him apart from his alternative contemporaries. Supporting a handful of bands, most notably indie-rock powerhouse “Hayes and Y” and enjoying a small radioplay run of his single “The Lights”, Hive Tressman has undeniable potential.
Surreal and at times painfully blunt lyricism is the driving force behind Hive Tressman’s music. Combining haunting back vocals with crisp rock/electronic instrumentals and lead vocals that ooze with character makes for a unique blend of pop and alternative rock.
Encapsulating several influences from Nick Cave to Kendrick Lamar, Hive Tressman stands out with disparate songwriting, fascinating lyrics and deep vocal cuts. Take a listen!
