Merseyside oddball rabble-rousers and recent Are You Listening? Festival act Her's return to Reading.

Snappy guitar lines and sleazy vocals continue the pair's rollicksome reign as Liverpool’s answer to Ariel Pink or Mac Demarco. It’s a return to their 80s jangle pop, slack art rock origins, calling to mind early material like ‘Dorothy’, ‘Speed Racer’ and ‘What Once Was’ to ultimately reassert the curious oddball mythos that made the duo so magnetic in the first place.

They’ve been met with a glowing reception from Radio 1, 6Music, DIY, The Guardian, FADER, Stereogum, NME, The Line of Best Fit and Dork, and conquered a respectable chunk of the global circuit already through shows at Visions, Green Man, The Great Escape, SXSW and Bangkok. Her’s next spate of touring will see them hit the road throughout the nation, after playing a sold-out London show at Moth Club earlier in May, before slots at Citadel, Leopallooza, Neighbourhood Festival, Tramlines capping it all off with an Autumn headline tour.
