premiere: Hudson Taylor “Care”

When the Rolling Stones ask you to open for them…

by Josh Madden

When the Rolling Stones played Hyde Park recently, 40 thousand people showed up. Now…the first thing we’d like for you to consider without hearing a note of this Hudson Taylor song for the very first time is that the Rolling Stones are five dudes. The Rolling Stones are five dudes who have been making rock n’ roll since well, some might argue that they invented it. So, back to the 40 thousand people crowded together in Hyde park, waiting to see the Rolling Stones and the band that opened up that show.

The band that opened that gig was made up of two guys, brothers named Aflie and Harry Hudson-Taylor. The thought of walking onto a stage in front of 40 thousand people makes our knees buckle--but not these guys. The Dublin-born siblings, who recently signed with Polydor records, walked out and killed it! It’s hard to describe their music without making references to names like Simon and Garfunkle or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, which are huge comparisons but we’re making them anyway. This premiere track “Care” is the first listen and peek into what the brothers' forthcoming record Osea will sound like. The track was produced by Florence & The Machine and Ed Sheeran collaborator Charlie Huggall, and we’re predicting that it’ll be all over the radio, television and in movies in no time flat. The Hudson Taylor bros have already done Glastonbury, Longtitude, Camp Bestival and Cambridge Folk Festival and they’re headed to play Bestival next month.

So back to that stage, the 40 thousand and the Stones…when you hear this track you’ll realize how two kids from Dublin could hold their own and you’ll most likely join us in looking forward to Osea’s October 13th release. Until then, follow them HERE and check their tour dates out HERE.
