Steeped in softness, Hush Club’s refined psychedelic sound is at once intimate and expansive: their dreamy, honest rock moves with thoughtful confidence. Alasdair MacKenzie (bass, vocals), Chris Haley (guitar, vocals), and Liz Kantor (keys, vocals) formed Hush Club in Boston, playing their first shows to college friends. Their introspective lyrics and rich vocal blend make every concert an intimate connection between band and audience – and among the band members themselves.
Each of Hush Club's songs is an open-hearted effort to explore ambiguity. Grounded in narrative, every track asks questions and expresses curiosity without settling for easy or simple answers. The music unravels slowly and intentionally, inspired by the finely crafted melodies of Fleet Foxes, the lush textures of Phoebe Bridgers, and the soul-searching poetry of Dawes.
Following the release of their self-titled 2019 debut LP, Hush Club is currently working on an album that encompasses a vast emotional spectrum, taking us through not just peaks and valleys but the nuances of our shared human experiences. The band also recently made its post-lockdown live debut with a sold-out headlining show at Cambridge, MA’s iconic Club Passim – a stage that has been graced by Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, and John Mayer. Even if we must decide just what meaning to take away for ourselves, there is no mistaking that this tight-knit group believes in what they sing.
