Low Hummer – Us Up North (Audio)
This supergroup from Hull, Canada release “Us Up North” a genre-bending track that blends elements of Indie Rock, Lofi, and Electronic music.
Encapsulating The North of England’s vibrant DIY music scene, Hull five piece ‘Low Hummer’ are set to take 2019 by storm with an arsenal of deadpan post-punk anthems.
Brought up on a diet of chip spice and patty butties, in the sweat dripping walls of The Adelphi, Low Hummer are a battered, bruised and wired bunch of odd bods armed with synthesisers, drum machines and distorted guitars (and a scratched copy of ‘Surfer Rosa’ in their back pocket).
The Hull five piece take great pleasure dissecting what it means to be a backwards northerner and skint Londoner on their debut single Us Up North.
A single that’s a taste of things to come from a band who’ve chucked down their guitars for synthesisers for their first release.
The Hull supergroup (comprised of members of Late Night Fiction, Shipping Forecast, Embrs and La Bête Blooms) make a sonic shift from their guitar-heavy pasts into electronic drums, harmonies and synths, a musical coming of age which takes a mischievous calm approach for a band who that are ready to show their louder side on a short headline tour in January.
Is This It-esque production allows the raging characteristics of Low Hummer’s live show to breathe and grow from drums and guitar to a wall of synths and guitars at its penultimate chorus.

Dan Mawer: vox and guitar
Emily Moulton: vox and synthesisers
John Copley: guitar
