Human Resources is an indie-pop band from Charleston, SC. Formed in 2015 by Dries Vandenberg, Aaron Utterback, Paul Chelmis, and Matt Zutell, HR quickly adopted a unique role in the Charleston music scene as a more pop-centric counterpart to the neo-southern and indie rock acts that were prevalent. The band’s debut single “Queen” and subsequent L.P. En Route (2015) played a key role in earning HR the “Electronic/Experimental Band of the Year” award from Charleston City Paper. The follow-up, Pizza Dreams (2016) earned the band a second City Paper Award, and produced another successful single, “Bad News”. In 2018 Human Resources released its third album Champagne. As with En Route and Pizza Dreams, the band utilized the talents of drummer Matt Zutell (Coast Records) for most production needs. HR also tapped LA-based producer Taylor Locke, a founding member of Rooney, at his studio The Velveteen Laboratory for initial production work.
