Los Angeles based Low Hum shares the title track from the forthcoming album Room To Breathe, out June 7th via Last Gang (Chromeo, Rhye, Stars). “Room To Breathe”, which features field recordings done in the Japanese subway system, comes to us in conjunction with tomorrow’s launch of the album Pre-Order, and was premiered via FLOOD Magazine, who write that “the lush, psychedelic epic blooms like a kaleidoscopic flower, floating in similar sonic atmospheres as Tame Impala and High Fidelity legends Beta Band.” Low hum is currently in the middle of a month long residency at The Echo, with final two shows taking place April 22nd and 29th.
“The song is about finding space in the noise and cacophony of distractions in our lives today,” says Collin Desha. “IE, social media, cell phones, emails, all the instant connections we have been trained to feel the need to always have to respond too.”
“Room To Breathe” follows “I Don’t Know Me Like You Do” which Clash Magazine praised for its “beautiful songwriting”, and NPR Music featured on its “New Music Friday” playlist. The lead single “Strange Love” meanwhile had The 405 talking up its “vitality and freneticism” and Buzz Bands LA dubbing it “a groove-heavy, neo-psychedelic head trip from the mind.”
The debut full-length album from Hawaiian born producer and multi-instrumentalist Collin Desha is the follow up to his eponymous lowhum EP, which won praise and a growing following around the Los Angeles music scene for its captivating mix of psychedelic pop and spaced out rock. With Room To Breathe, which Desha wrote, produced and tracked most of the instruments for, Low Hum further explores a heady mix of late night soundscapes and danceable grooves.
