Talk Shows by Low Hummer








Hull, UK band Low Hummer have returned with new single Talk Shows ahead of their debut appearances at SXSW. The song is the group's first new offering since their acclaimed debut album.

Another expression of the estrangement and anguish usually expressed in the band's lyrics, Talk Shows is a vibrant, synth-based post punk track with a caustic character.

Guitarist, vocalist and lyricist Dan Mawer explains: "I tried to use the verses of Talk Shows as a retrospective warning to myself. For anytime I feel like spending time with people who aren’t good for me, anytime I feel like drinking is my only option, anytime I suffer body dysmorphia or anytime I feel like sharing my problems with the wrong people."

Mawer also comments on the vocal delivery of singer Aimee Duncan, and the rest of his bandmates' contribution: "Aimee brought the verses to life in a really constructive way thanks to her unique phrasing and it’s quickly become a favourite of ours to play live. The song was brought together by the entire band as the process of writing becomes a collaborative effort before we reach the studio!"
