Despite only having one track out, we’ve been hooked on HOOLi ever since we saw them live at Winchestival last summer. With super catchy tracks such as ‘Cider Sue’ (listen below) and an infectious live performance, the band are a must see live.
We had a brief chat with HOOLi before their Icebreaker Festival slot next week regarding the band, Icebreaker Festival, playing live and the future!
Hi there! Firstly, so that our readers can know a bit more about you, please introduce HOOLi:
We are from Fareham, Gosport and Southampton if you count all three of us and we like to play heavy blues. We’re influenced by all sorts from Dr Dre to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
You’re set to play Icebreaker Festival at the Lord John Russell towards the end of the month. For anyone who is yet to see you live, what can they expect from your set?
Hopefully something that will make you want to dance. It will be loud, really loud.
What was the original spark which encouraged you to start creating music as a band?
It all just sort of fell into place immediately so I guess the first time we all jammed together. We were gagging to gig which I think is all the encouragement we needed!
Where is somewhere you’d love to play but haven’t yet?
Wedgewood Rooms, definitely!
Finally, have you got anything to share regarding upcoming gigs and what have you got planned for the rest of 2019?
We hope to have another single out and we just plan on playing as much as possible this year, really give it all we’ve got!
We’d like to thank HOOLi very much for their time! You can check out their latest single ‘Cider Sue’ and also connect with the band via the social media links below.
You can catch HOOLi at the following gigs and festivals over the next month:
26th January – Icebreaker Festival at the Lord John Russell – 3pm
16th February – The Roundabout Hotel, Fareham – with Colour of the Jungle
