"Drift away with Her’s blissful new single, ‘Marcel’"

Give the duo’s third single a listen first on Dork.
Her’s are today sharing their latest slice of warming, laid-back pop with new track ‘Marcel’ – check it out below, first on Dork.

It’s the perfect soundtrack for relaxing in this afternoon’s balmy autumn sun, and it comes with a story too: the song was once called ‘David Seaman’, but now acts in tribute to someone else after the band found a wallet at a thrift store that once belonged to a chap called Marcel. Sadly, the boys later looked him up online only to find he was deceased.

Of the track, the duo (sort of) explain:

and Lynch Like!
Take a journey through time, to a warm Indian summer in Luxembourg with your new moustached freünd, M.A.R.C.E.L.”

‘Marcel’ follows on from singles ‘Dorothy’ and ‘What Once Was’. - Dork

"Her's - Marcel"

Why do we like this?
It's been a while since we've heard anything new from Her's, but the dreamy Liverpool dup is back with "Marcel."

The track feels like a surf pop song from the 60s that's been put in a blender with modern indie-pop and a dash of 80s sentiment. It's a breezy, beach tune field by pina coladas and ocean sounds and Her's' best track yet.

There's also a strange story about the songs origins below:

"Originally called "David Seaman," the song’s name was changed after a shopping trip to a thrift store where, in a lucky dip basket full of wallets, they found the wallet of a man named Marcel. Made curious by the cheesy 80’s identity pic inside replete with porn star ‘tache, the group took to the internet to find Marcel was deceased. Though a tribute to its namesake, "Marcel," is really a song about love, confusion, and the gamut of emotions and impressions we have to run before we figure someone out." - Indie Shuffle

"NEW TRACK: Her’s – Marcel"

This wonderfully relaxed song evokes hanging out at a sunny beach. But Liverpool duo Her’s named the song after an unknown, deceased person whose wallet was sold at a thrift store. How this all fits together? Listen for yourself: - GlamGlare

"Liverpool dynamic duo Her’s explore hazy jangle-pop dynamics on “What Once Was”"

Liverpool via Barrow and Norway duo Her's jangle through waves of summery angst on their new single "What Once Was"

Dynamic pair Audun Laading and Stephen Fitzpatrick are both outsiders from sleepy coastal towns several countries apart but have established themselves as Her's on the banks of the Mersey.

Norwegian Laading and Barrow-born Fitzpatrick met through a love of cynical humour and off-kilter cultures; such cultures that made Her's nothing more than a natural extension to their individual voyages. This and humour has led to such instances as printing out an image of Pierce Brosnan to paste onto the front of their drum machine.

New release "What Once Was" instantly distances itself from the band's other new track "Dorothy" - a distance that's often difficult for two pieces. Not Her's though. Fitzpatrick possesses a swerving, low rasp endorsed by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) and engineered by Matt Berninger (The National).

Coupled with wave after wave of luscious, Beach Fossils-esque jangle pop and the striking aesthetics denoted within, it's a refreshingly modern take on the beach-scuzz exploration of the '80s.

Dreamy, hazy and yearning for escape with every jangle or croon, Her's are the summery angst everyone - even the happiest of souls - can embrace. - The Line of Best Fit


Liverpool-based duo are an exciting hybrid of Beach Fossils and Ariel Pink - hear their first song now.

By Jamie Milton on 7th April 2016

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Her’s.

The two members of Her’s grew up on different coastlines, but the stars align on debut track ‘Dorothy’.

Before meeting in Liverpool, Norwegian Audun Laading and the Barrow-born Stephen Fitzpatrick were dreaming of a bigger world. Her’s finds them joining forces like it’s a second instinct. Fitzpatrick possesses a swerving, deep-as-it-gets baritone. He’s surrounded by jangly, dreamy guitars, but they go way beyond initial Wild Nothing or Beach Fossils comparisons. An old school-beat brings to mind Ariel Pink, and there’s a strange undercurrent lurking behind the wave-crashing default.

That’s a lot to take in for a track that is, at its essence, refreshingly simple. One thing’s for sure - this is one of the best debuts we’ve heard for quite some time.

Catch Her’s on the following dates:

02 Liverpool, Threshold Festival
13 Liverpool, 2ube Extra
30 Liverpool, Smithdown Road Festival

01 Salford, Sounds From the Other City
12 Liverpool, The Baltic Social - DIY

"Hers - What Once Was. The SafeHouse Live Session."

A live acoustic performance of 'What Once Was' by Hers.

Still working on that hot first release.



Her's are Liverpool based pop duo consisting of Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading.

As outsiders from sleepy coastal towns on different coastlines, Stephen Fitzpatrick from Barrow in Furness and Norwegian Audun Laading met for the first time in Liverpool as students. The pair bonded over a love of peculiar, sardonic humour and wide eyed observations.
