HREĞA are a 3 piece instrumental band from the City of Oxford. Formed in the darker months of 2006, after other momentary incarnations, they pulled together a short set and started playing shows in March 2007. Since then they have shared the stage with Shield Your Eyes, Vessels, Zail, Bearclaw , That Fucking Tank, Instruments, Line, The Pluto,Nitkowski, Theo, Don Cabellero, These Monsters & Cats & Cats & Cats to name a few.
In November 2007 HREĞA produced the self-released "EP One". Heralded by some as the freshest thing to emerge from Oxford for some time - and we'd agree, an EP highly recommended.
HREĞA's style is well described in this live review by Drowned in Sound,
'Their instrumental post-rock sound, grandiose like a heavier and more intricate Explosions In The Sky is absolutely captivating. Their distorted peaks, battling guitars and swift undulating changes of pace mean the 30-minute set flies by far too quick'
