In a world too serious for its own good, where bands believe Q magazine is the bible and NME is the gospel, its refreshing to see a band that enjoy making music, have catchy tunes and are fronted by a singer who has the retro style and charm of a sixties George Best. More humour, wit and energy than you could wish for, raw, unpolished talent with some classic tunes, Magdalena A hole, and Daytime TV.

A surprise find in Manchester ITC Fringe!

'Fresh, fun & just what the doctor ordered" - ROCKSELLOUT

Reviews
Kerrang! Magazine - issue 1334 October 2010 (Simon Young)
‘An irresistible sugar bomb of rowdy pop-punk’

Rock Sound - issue 142 December 2010 (Amy Bangs)
‘…A sound that more than matches their would be peers’

Sergio Pimentel – Activision Blizzard
‘…Definitely a band to keep an eye on.’

Sally’s Gig Reviews (October 2010)
‘Unravel Me EP is a mature offering from the young Barnsley quartet, and really should push them into the stratosphere of the punk/pop genre where they most definitely belong’

Hitomi review in Rock Sound – 20th May 2009
“Hailing from Barnsley, Hitomi subscribe to the melodic hard rock school of entertainment and consequently will certainly appeal to fans of Slaves to Gravity, Brigade and Fightstar. There’s a dangerous urgency to Hitomi’s sound, mixing anthemic choons, some wicked fret work and some promising songs. Already clocking up some impressive tour miles in the back of the van, these guys are doing all the right things to build themselves into a solid band, even if the name sounds like a character from Sonic the Hedgehog. By the time you read this there will be new tunes online. What are you waiting for?!”

Simon Young – Kerrang! Magazine - 16th October 2010

“Hitomi’s sound was an irresistible sugar bomb of rowdy pop-punk. It must have been tough going on last, but their assured stage presence and a canny ability for penning a simple, memorable tune hints at a very rosy career.”
