Humm has today released their new single titled ‘Danced Alone (who I am when I’m in love)’. Somber and personal on a music level, the song instantly and gently embraces you with it’s quiet and intimate way about it that gives the listener a feeling that they are in the story and meaning of the worlds by being carried by the music.
I have to say that I love the unique chord progressions that literally pull on the heart strings a bit when in concert with the vocals. Songwriting, to me, has never been so soulful yet intricate while being so simplistic in nature. This is what music is supposed to do.
Bath-based contemporary folk duo Humm are pleased to announce the release of their upcoming single ‘Danced Alone (who I am when I’m in love)’, due for release October 20th 2023.
Since 2018, Humm have been captivating audiences with their deadly combination of melodic finger-style guitar, lush, ethereal vocals and rich harmonium drones, creating genre-defining tracks that are mellifluous yet anthemic, capturing nature, folklore and Cornish fairytale in every song. They were recently chosen from hundreds as one of four acts to visit, write and perform at Sir Paul & Mike McCartney’s childhood home, 20 Forthlin Road in Liverpool as part of The Forthlin Sessions.
The duo are inspired by a plethora of artists from Richard Thompson and Joni Mitchell to Eels, Radiohead and XTC, which has helped them to untie traditional and contemporary styles, carving out their own signature sound. The importance and presence of nature is at the heart of Humm’s music, with conversational melodies and wistful instrumentation bringing their earnest lyrics to life.
Following up on their recent single Mother Nature’s Lost Love, their upcoming single Danced Alone (who I am when I’m in love), produced, mixed and mastered with Josh Clark at Get Real Audio, blends gorgeous harmonies, delicate, driving guitar lines and poignant lyrics to explore self love, reflection and appreciation for the hard lessons you learn after a complicated relationship.
