Low Hummer are having more than just a moment. The rising Hull heavyweights are doing the rounds on the festival circuit ahead of releasing their debut album, ‘Modern Tricks For Living’. We’ve interviewed them once before, but why not go in for a second, hey?
You’ve just played slots on the BBC Introducing stages of the Reading and Leeds Festivals. How did that feel?
Jack: Like a real achievement! For a UK band of any genre, it has to be on your bucket list; seeing your band’s name on a poster alongside some of the biggest names in music. We’re all beyond excited!
Which venues have been your favourite to play so far — so much so that you can’t wait to return?
Aimee: We love the Brudenell [in Leeds] for obvious reasons — it’s a brilliant venue with loads of heritage. We also can’t wait to play our home, The New Adelphi Club, and Halifax’s Piece Hall soon!
Which albums have kept you sane over the lockdowns?
Joe: ‘Song For Our Daughter’ by Laura Marling, ‘Night Network’ by The Cribs and Harry Styles’ ‘Fine Line’.
John: Definitely Phoebe Bridgers’ ‘Punisher’, plus ‘Marigold’ by Pinegrove and ‘Twin Heavy’ by Willie J Healey.
Where do you see the band being in five years?
Steph: Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage and/or dead.
If you weren’t making music, what would be your chosen go-to jobs instead? It could be anything!
John: Pizza maker at Only. in Hull’s Trinity Market.
Dan: A really insufferable DJ…
Steph: A failed novelist.
So, there you have it, a quick peep inside the mind of Low Hummer. That ought to whet your appetite for the debut album…
