Quirky boy/girl electro pop + crunchy guitars + songs about dogs + hotpants = 2 Hot 2 Sweat.

Biography

Pop melodies, disco beats and jagged guitars with biting lyrics and wilful experimentation…

…Not to mention a dash of shambolic choreography, kitsch costume and audience participation…

2Hot2Sweat make wonky-electro-pop. They love bleeps, beats and thrashings. They're sweet and sour. Acerbic and angelic. They love each other so much they got married and now they're airing all their dirty laundry in public. And in jumpsuits.

It all started in Norwich, with a smattering of live shows and the recording of a demo, which pricked up the ears of BBC Radio 1's new music aficionado Huw Stephens. Internet radio station Dandelion Radio were also quick to catch on to the Sweat Movement, awarding the ‘Sweat the title of 'Best New Band of 2007’ in their end of year poll. They soon upped sticks for the bright lights of London to win over the denizens of the capital with a cheerful disregard for good fashion sense and captivating stage show.

Debut single 'Your Space or Mine' was released in March 2008 on the delicious NROne Records, followed by dancefloor filler and ode to the disappointments of dating - 'Half-Assed Rom-Com' in October. The singles, plus a string of live appearances in London, won the hearts of several musical luminaries including Radio One's Huw Stephens, BBC6 Music's Tom Robinson, Artrocker Magazine and Tom and William Ravenscroft. The release of Half-Assed Rom-Com coincided with the band's live show at BBC Merseyside as part of the BBC Electric Proms festival, where they were honoured to be picked as part of the line up for the legendary John Peel night by his family.

In Summer 2009 the 'Sweat recorded a live session for BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens show, and played a storming set on the Radio 1 stage at Latitude Festival. Mini album 'rarararararaRA!' was released early this year to much acclaim and excitement.

2010 saw the launch of 2H2S's hugely popular London clubnight - Pet Sounds - which plays host to live bands, an animal themed disco and London's first Pet Quiz, and the launch of their very own label - Pets Love Disco.

Just three months into 2011 and they're already having their best year yet. Their latest single, Rude Dog, has been unleashed on the british public to rave reviews. It's had radio play on BBC Radio One, 6Music and XFM from DJs including Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Nemone, Tom Robinson and has even been playlisted by Topshop Radio. The band are currently preparing for a summer of live shows and festival appearances and they can't wait to sweat in a venue near you.
