Low Hummer Announce Debut LP 'Modern Tricks For Living', Stream "The People, This Place"

Hull post punk/alt band Low Hummer have announced the release of their highly-anticipated debut album 'Modern Tricks For Living'.

The 10-track album was recorded with producer Matt Peel at The Nave studio and will be out on September 17th via Dance To The Radio, featuring their excellent new single "The People, This Place". Pre-order your copy here.

Low Hummer write 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, established a regular rehearsal home in iconic DIY venue The New Adelphi Club and set about honing their righteous, danceable garage rock before announcing themselves in late 2019 and introducing the world to Low Hummer - this band of misfits from a town left behind.

Fropm the band : "Written and recorded over what has been possibly the strangest year of our lives, we’ve realised more and more how grateful we are for the opportunity to record a bloody album with our best mates. We just hope it’s better than our Banana Bread."

"Our album of isolation during such overwhelming times. The record captures how us bunch of misfits have felt isolated from popular culture, isolated from love, and how we all have been getting through physical isolation! ‘Modern Tricks for Living’ does not provide any kind of wisdom for navigating through modern society, but maybe just shows how a bunch of strangers from Hull get by. ‘The People This Place’ was the final piece we needed to make ‘Modern Tricks For Living’ complete so it feels like the person song to launch the album with."

Watch: SPINN Unleash "The Things She Says To Me" Music Video

Liverpool indie pop/dream pop/jangle band SPINN have unleashed the video for their newest single "The Things She Says To Me".

The song is part of our current playlist and is out now. Get it here.

“When I was writing this song I really wanted to write a pure pop song,” singer Johnny Quinn explains of the song’s genesis. “Lyrically it’s one of my favourites, they’re just so sweet and simple, it carries that scouse-pop heritage in a way I’m really happy with. At the time I saw this tune as a way of hitting reset on the writing process for this next album, I knew we had the ability to be writing better stuff than we were at the time, and this song felt like the first step in the process of getting where we wanted to be.”

The similarities with Manchester don’t stop with just the factories and their own love for the Manchester scene. Corduroy makes dreamy indie pop with a big dose of reverb and hovering guitars. It’s stylish and smooth and it feels both refreshing and familiar. The distinct vocals contends with different layers from the rest of the band creating a multifaceted wall of sounds. "NLMM" is basically about ancienty.

New Entry: Strangely Enough Unveils New Single "Are You More?"

Melbourne/Brisbane-based indie rock artist Strangely Enough (aka multi-instrumentalist Greg Olley) has unveiled his new single "Are You More?".

The song is taken from his upcoming debut EP 'Stories You Tell Yourself', which will be available on June 18. Get it here.

Seething with hypnotic synth – created by an old, home-recorded vocal sample –, rubbery basslines and a fast, punctuated drum beat, 'Are You More?' makes for a palpitating, anxiety-inducing number. Grounding the track however is Olley with his soaring vocals and introspective lyrics that ingeniously explores social injustices and world wide crises. Olley passionately states:

"This song started off being about climate change; a reflection on how easy it is to just not think about it but all the while knowing that your actions are contributing to this looming existential threat. As I was writing it the world went through multiple crises of our own making: racism, sexism, mass extinction, all of which are ongoing. I began to wonder how this time and my generation would be looked back on. Past generations sometimes seem unbelievably flawed, but here we are making terrible mistakes, the injustices of our society laid bare."
