A group of lads hailing from York, The Howl & The Hum have been on the rise over the past two years. Creating a palpable buzz amongst fans with their dark take on indie meets post-punk, it’s no wonder they have accumulated over ten million streams on Spotify alone. With their new debut EP ‘HUMAN CONTACT’ having been released today, it is set to further strengthen their early potential. It was produced by Jolyon Thomas who also worked with Royal Blood, Slaves and U2, and recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Kent.
Human Contact is a flawless execution of songs drawn from across the emotional spectrum, with sensational thought-provoking lyrics which in turn will leave you speechless at their outstanding talent. In the forty-nine minutes and thirty-six seconds of the EP, we are introduced to emotive, bittersweet tracks which will leave you teary-eyed but longing for more.
On the album, frontman Sam Griffiths says:
"Human Contact" is about a very modern kind of loneliness: one in which we are reminded of intimate moments which haunt us, via technology or through isolation. This album is both a breakup record and a love letter to memory, and the fading definition of human contact itself.”
