The Howl & The Hum describe themselves as “a miserable disco who write Bond themes for films where Jimmy is still hung up on that girl.” They 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 York-based four-piece embarked on their first headline tour in England in early 2018 to coincide with the release of new single Portrait I. Following this the band are releasing a series of new songs leading up to their first festival season in summer 2019.
