bdrmm: It’s Just A Bit Of Blood

Hull-based shoegaze quartet bdrmm return with the release of “It’s Just A Bit Of Blood” and celebrate the news that they have signed to Mogwai’s Rock Action who will l release their anticipated second album “I Don’t Know” on June 30th.

It’s an epic four and half minutes combining fragility, and power vulnerability carving new shapes out of krautrock, shoegaze, post-rock and prog influences. 

The band’s Ryan Smith says of the new track: “Most people who have seen us tour will recognise this track. The more we played it, the more it dawned on us it was becoming something special, and an integral part of our set. Lyrically, it stems from my recent mental health awareness. I’d become depressed and very socially anxious, I really felt like I had changed and didn’t know who I was. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by three of my brothers within this band – one literally by blood – and have always been able to be myself with them. It’s about realising what you have and remembering that when you can’t see it.”

And on signing with Mogwai’s label he continues “We’re so excited to have signed to Rock Action. After touring with Mogwai and forming such a close relationship with them, we feel blessed to have been invited to work with them and their team. To be on the same label as Arab Strap too? I mean, say no more.” Nods as good as a wink.
