Blooming Heck

Blooming Heck’s self-titled debut record is a garage pop odyssey. It fuses the indie-pop-rock of groups like the Breeders, the Go-Go’s, Tegan and Sarah, and Chastity Belt, with the eclecticism of Ween, Talking Heads, Todd Rundgren, and Ariel Pink.

Featuring Katherine Simpson and Robert Simpson, the former rhythm section of Australian indie pop group The Triangles, a popular mid 2000’s cult act around Melbourne and Sydney, who enjoyed a top-10 single in Spain in 2010 after their song Applejack was used in a television beer commercial.

Blooming Heck churn out a handsome swag of upbeat tunes sweeter than honey and butter on toast – a total of eleven songs on their first musical offering – all freshly baked from the hottest oven. Their smattering of jangling heart felt pop-driven tunes really hit a cracking pace and are bound to turn the fiercest melancholic frown upside down and get the saddest sack their mojo back. From around 2008-2012 Katherine and Robert moonlighted in a number of other bands in Australia and the UK, before returning to Melbourne and starting to gig under the name Human Woman. A recent name change to Blooming Heck was brought about to avoid a legal run-in with an Icelandic group of the same name.
