For Hercules Morse, with all members new to band-life, it took a little while jamming together to work out that the simplest writing sessions usually birthed the best sounding music. After forming just over two years ago and messing around with changes their style for several months, HM settled on a fast, angry, hooky sound - in the vein of much loved hardcore outfits like Backtrack, Guns Up! and TUI. As soon as the five-piece stopped overcomplicating things and started simply writing the music they wanted to hear, things clicked in a big way and the band’s true sound revealed itself. It only took a handful of gigs for Hercules Morse’s live show to evolve into one of the most intense and energetic in Perth, including two shows at The Hen House Live which exceeded capacity, with the band priding themselves on taking their intensity to new levels each time they play live. Over the past year, HM have spent a stack of time in the rehearsal studio, nailing their sound and tightening up their set and are taking it into the studio to record their debut EP.
