Low Hummer’s single Talk Shows leaps out at me in the same way that Chaise Longue did when Wet Leg appeared on the scene last year.
There’s something so intimate, relatable and infectious about it that I just want to hear it again the moment it’s finished.
It seems as if Hull is having a moment right now, with Lucy Beaumont’s show Hullraisers and Low Hummer come from there too.
They’re a sextet writing songs about their life in deepest darkest East Yorkshire and their place in a world of consumerism and bad news stories sold as gospel.
Daniel, Aimee, Steph, Jack, John and Joe came together from the far corners of the city’s tight-knit DIY community and established a regular rehearsal home in an iconic DIY venue, The New Adelphi Club in late 2019.
They’ve put out several singles in quick succession since their first fuzzed-up garage anthem, Don’t You Ever Sleep (I Choose Live News, The Real Thing, Picture Bliss and Sometimes I Wish I Was A Different Person, Never Enough).
Their debut album Modern Tricks For Living came out last September but this… well this is different class. And they need to make a video for it.
