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.
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.
“It is a love letter to the newly lonely, exploring the difficulties of losing yourself within a relationship and finding yourself in the aftermath. This song is a reminder for you to love and appreciate yourself and the beautiful world around you”, the band state.
