Hull's City Of Culture status has helped shine a light on one of the country's most under-rated cities.
Right now there is a nexus of DIY communities at work in the city, helping with the transfer of ideas, creating new projects and platforms.
Rising five-piece Low Hummer have emerged from this collective instinct, a group forged through a shared love of PIXIES and The New Adelphi Club.
Scuzzed out indie with lashings of synths, their post-punk leaning songwriting has a surreal pop instinct running through it.
Working with Leeds label Dance To The Radio, Low Hummer are set to release new single 'Don't You Ever Sleep' later this week.
Driven by Daniel Mawer's surging vocal, the swirling, intense arrangement emphasises the lyrical themes of anxiety and alienation.
"'Don’t You Ever Sleep' is a song about late night loneliness and anxiety leading to purchasing items online as a form of therapy,” singer Daniel Mawer explains. "Sonically it’s us exploring eclectic drumkits and synths, before jumping into a distorted chorus which comes most natural to us. We feel the song is a blueprint of what Low Hummer should sound like."
"The chorus of ‘we are bored’ is the apathy and frustration I think a lot of our friends and family feel regarding their lives."
Tune in now.
Low Hummer will take part in Live at Leeds’ Ones to Watch at the Brudenell Social Club on October 12th - ticket LINK.
