York-based 4-piece The Howl & The Hum combine dark hypnotic pop with post-punk influences, pierced with lyrics that make you call your mum the next morning.
Following acclaimed sets at Neighbourhood Festival and Loopallu and a debut tour of the Scottish Highlands in 2017, The Howl & The Hum embarked on their first headline tour in England in early 2018 to coincide with the release of single ‘Portrait I’.
The Howl & The Hum have released a series of new songs leading up to their first festival season featuring appearances at Latitude, Citadel, The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Standon Calling and the BBC Biggest Weekend.
Their latest release, ‘Don’t Shoot The Storm’ is an unhinged carnival, a parade for something not quite right. It is a song about gun control recorded in a barn in the backwaters of Yorkshire.
"expansive indie songwriting that nods towards Massive Attack or Portishead." - Clash Magazine
"The Howl And The Hum are a seriously great band, from whom you will be hearing a great deal more in the coming months." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
