Single Review: The Hubbards // Cold Cut


Hull band The Hubbards have become one of the biggest bands in the area over the last couple of years and have an impressive EP already out, which has got them airplay on Radio 1 and BBC 6 music. Latest single ‘Cold Cut’ finely tunes their underrated abilities into their best song yet.

The layers of accomplished guitar work that has been present in all their music so far is also present here with a reserved, jazzy intro leading into the energetic verse and chorus. ‘Cold Cut’ is full of intricacies that could go unnoticed, as the song is so catchy and danceable (as is shown in the humorous music video).

However there is a lot here and the individual talents of these guys are impressive. Perhaps the most obvious part of ‘Cold Cut’ is vocalist Reuben’s impressive and ranged voice that adds life to the lyrics and another layer of melody to the song. The Hubbards already have a great set of songs, ‘Alison’ being a personal favourite; ‘Cold Cut’ will hopefully get them the greater recognition they deserve.
