The Key Studio Sessions: Hurry

Out today in the self-release world of Bandcamp is the latest EP from Hurry, the dreamy noise pop / shoegaze project from Philly’s Matt Scottoline. He typically plays bass in the comparatively amped up pop punk band Everyone Everywhere, but that’s “amped” in terms of tempo and energy. There was plenty of pure volume filling the room when the live lineup of Hurry recorded its Key Studio Session. Joining Scottoline was Brendan McHugh of Everyone Everywhere on second guitar, and Rob DeCarlois of Univox on drums; I dig the raw immediacy they bring to Scottoline’s songs, which are deliciously lush and layered on the album. Download the session below, compare / contrast with Hurry’s music on Bandcamp, and keep an eye fixed on Facebook for news of their live appearances.


Key Studio Sessions Sneak Preview: Hurry

It began as the shy side pursuit of Everyone Everywhere bass player Matt Scottoline – a place for him to dig deeper into his love for jangley dreampop, from Black Tambourine and My Bloody Valentine all the way back to early LPs by The Cure. But over the course of the past six months and some, Hurry has grown into a real, functioning thing that gets out of the studio, plays live shows and releases LPs. The band’s latest is set to drop this Wednesday, along with its Key Studio Session, which we recorded last month. Below, you can grab a sneak preview of what you’ll hear – the twin-guitar fuzz number “Tonight.” And remember to check back to The Key this Wednesday, May 16 for the entire six-song session.


Check out the debut LP from Hurry, playing Johnny Brenda’s on Wednesday

When we last checked in with Everyone Everywhere bassist Matt Scottoline, he had just released a set of free music by what we thought was a one-off side project, Hurry. The lofty Slowdive-esque fuzz and whimsical arrangements of the EP instantly hooked us, and apparently, they had the same effect on Scottoline. Some sporadic demos and samplers later, Hurry is now streaming its debut full-length on Bandcamp and making its live debut opening for Slow Club at Johnny Brenda’s. Give the set a listen below, and catch the show this Wed. Feb. 15; Hurry goes on at 9 p.m. sharp.
