Heartworms, the brainchild of musician and poet Jojo Orme, is a cauldron of perplexity. Orme’s gothic take on avant-garde post-punk is beguiling. Sardonic prose is delivered in a deceptively innocent manner while irresistibly off-kilter grooves clash with a cacophony of reverb-drenched guitars.

With influences ranging from alternative heavyweights such as PJ Harvey and the Factory funk of A Certain Ratio, to the unflinching spoken-word. Heartworms is bound to infest.
