Revue review Hospital

Check out the full review here:

"“Hospital” is the result of lead vocalist Joe Carroll surviving that nasty tumble. With its jangly intro interspersed with hospital PA sound clips, the song makes you feel like a first-person witness to the event. The band’s sound is tight and lively, with the energy of Total Life Forever-era Foals. The band have been together since 2005, so it’s a wonder the world has taken so long to notice their talent. This single (and the previously released “No, You’re a Rabbit”) proves that Heroes in Hiding are an emerging band with a bright future – provided they don’t risk life and limb to find inspiration for their future songs!"

The Last Mix Tape: Hospital Review

Thank you to The Last Mix Tape for their kind words!

"Hospital’ is a song filled with great vivid rhythm. The latest offering from indie outfit Heroes In Hiding, the track finds the group once again expanding the boundaries of their music.

The inclusion of found sound elements to Heroes In Hiding sound gives their indie-pop sound a hint of Public Service Broadcasting-esque (specifically The Race for Space) post-rock ambition, making ‘Hospital’ all the more engrossing whilst also keeping the hooks and melodic lushness in tact."

HiH - BBC Introducing

"They say:
“The song originated both musically and lyrically from a bad accident I had a few months back. Thankfully I was ok but had to spend a couple of nights in hospital. A nurse was tending to a patient in the bed next to me and used a machine that made two harmonious tones. I used my phone to record this noise and other noises in the hours that followed and upon my return home, used them as the basis for the song. Musically the song is heavily influenced by the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, The Avalanches and Massive Attack especially in the introduction. The lyrics are a snapshot of what happened that night and how it made me realise that life is precious and to be enjoyed.”

We say:
“While musing on the fragility of life, Heroes In Hiding’s ‘Hospital’ resolutely opposes cliché and is all the more refreshing for it. Lyrically deconstructing an accident and following nights in hospital (complete with field-recorded samples) could easily have become a dirge. Instead, what we have here is a major-key celebration. Yes, it viscerally acknowledges the brittle nature of the human condition, but the take-away message is a life-affirming one.”
