Madrid four-piece Hickeys draw from many different sources and combine softness with vehemence trusting in heavy instrumentals and non-conformity driven writing. Marta Kunitsa (guitar), Ana Erice (guitar), Maite Barrena (drums) and Martina G. Compairé (bass) met at college and knew it was only together that they could start this project.
Their newest path started with the release of “Alegria Di Vision” (2019, self edited): presented to us as a prelude, reflecting a supernatural current state of mind and shifting us closer to their transformation. “With ‘Alegria’ we have darkened. Maybe it was because of the sharpness of the uncertainty and bewilderment of these moments in which we exist.”
As a result of these past years together, they have released the first single of their debut album: “MOTHERLODE” (2021, self edited).It is born of the impossibility to lock the disillusion down in themselves; of the inability to disregard disconformity and follow the logic line drawn by others. On the contrary, they’ve let our deepest feelings loose in a single that marks the turning point for the band. In other words, what comes next is loaded with more sincerity, crudity and determination than ever.
This single comes along with a music video directed by María Muriedas and Ximón Agirre: an exquisite piece that represents the qualitative shift that the band is taking towards a stage of greater artistic maturity.
