In 2019, there are more ways than ever to get your name out there. Stars are born on Soundcloud, or via Instagram; musicians can cultivate a whole following without having ever played a note outside of their bedrooms. It's a new type of opportunity, but it's also one that lacks the romance and community of a youth spent cutting your teeth around like-minded souls. And, as The Howl & The Hum's chief singer and songwriter Sam Griffiths discovered over years embedded in York's artistic open mic scene, it's those experiences that really whip you into shape. After moving to York, Griffiths was hanging out at open mic and poetry nights , a strange Yorkshire version of Greenwich Village in the 60s, and it was through these nights that Sam would go on to meet bassist Bradley Blackwell, drummer Jack Williams and guitarist Conor Hirons.
 
With a magpie mentality they cut their teeth playing in and learning from local bands and busking, with a strong songwriting core and an inventive, progressive view on what place guitar music has in today’s culture. Their inspirations ranging from Leonard Cohen and Phoebe Bridgers to Lizzo and Kendrick Lamar, and have been likened to Massive Attack, Radiohead and Alt-J.

With the support of influential tastemakers such as Radio 1's new music legend Huw Stephens, who recently handpicked the band to play on his stage at this year's SXSW and debuted the band’s new single “Hall of Fame”, The Howl & The Hum have just inked a deal with AWAL/Kobalt. Now the band are heading into summer 2019 with everything in place. Having sold out London's Omeara at the start of the year and toured in support of Welsh wonders Boy Azooga, they're lining up the cogs for their own headline tour later in the year, with more music imminently on the horizon.

The Howl & The Hum

  • The Howl & The Hum

    The Howl & The Hum

    Alternative Rock

    The Howl & The Hum are 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 4-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 featuring an appearance at Citadel Festival.

    "expansive indie songwriting that nods towards Massive Attack or Portishead." - Clash Magazine

    "Their debut EP, Godmanchester Chinese Bridge is just the right amounts of accessible yet still unerringly cool and ’emotional’." - Crack In The Road

    "The Howl And The Hum are a seriously great band, from whom you will be hearing a great deal more in the coming months." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music
