The Howl & The Hum are a York band who "used to have one head and then someone cut it off so it grew two heads, and this situation reoccurred until the now four-faced hydra began its slow takeover of this planet." Which… you can’t say fairer than that, really.
The band’s electric, distorted roar is often softened to a loveless moan, with both ranges being covered in this first song and video ‘Godmanchester Chinese Bridge’, containing some lo-fi footage from happy times past that may just sweep you along with the building, emotional, heart-wrenching vibes from this exciting band who, strangely, kind of feel like they’ve always been here, such is the familar ache of the lyrics depicting the disintegration of a friendship from the one left behind: a yearning for reconciliation and a recognition of the pain of change and ambition.
"It’s so cruel to say, but I hope you lose your way" growls the bittersweet song. We don’t wish the same for The Howl and The Hum, who you can follow on Facebook.
