Looking at the success of Hard-Fi, it’s hard to believe that their debut album was recorded in places like bedrooms, pubs and disused offices. The album became an unexpected success, earning the band nominations for Brit Awards and the Mercury Music Prize. Their subsequent releases did just as well, supported by extensive airplay on BBC Radio 1. Hard-Fi released a greatest hits album in 2014 and went on hiatus until 2022.
