The Anomalies

The AnomaliesThe Anomalies (aka the “best band to come out of Hereford“) are the core duo of Mouthmaster Murf (vocals, synth) and Sam Meehan (vocals, guitar) with the addition of DJ Mayem’s turntables, Peter Cooper (bass), and Joey Holmes (drums). Much like the definition of their name – something that departs from what is standard or normal – they combine soul, funk, swing, hip-hop, dance, indie, and even drum & bass into an eclectic lover’s wet dream.

Taking in musical elements from across the board, both in electronic sample based form and live instrumentals, The Anomalies have created a fluid and modern sound that delivers a slice of sonic alchemy to appease everyone’s ear lobes, whilst retaining an authentic and alternative twist on music that they love. To put it simpler, think of Franz Ferdinand meets The Beastie Boys with healthy doses of Fatboy Slim and The Streets thrown in for good measure. Their hip-hop / indie rock crossover debut Free Soup Social was released last month and something tells me that it will end up in many “Best of 2009” lists. Even if you are not into the urban scene or hip-hop isn’t your cup of tea (guilty as charged), you will end up loving their tunes.
