The Hush Now

Boston indie-pop quintet The Hush Now have made an impression on music critics and fans by wedding the “lush sugar-spun melodies of shoegaze’s dreamy heyday” to “the hooky muscle of bands like Guided by Voices and Built To Spill” as one critic put it. The band’s self-titled debut, released in 2009, climbed independent radio top 100 charts and drew comparisons to the Cure, Guided by Voices, My Bloody Valentine, and Teenage Fan Club, among others.
