Hailing from Spain, Brazil and London, GHUM bring together a mesmerizing, diverse mix of grunge, cold wave and post-punk. Their flowing, organic sound forms the creative spark of their new EP, "The Coldest Fire"-recorded with producer Adam Jaffrey (Palace, Crows, NightFlowers). The EP takes GHUM into a hostile yet melodic new direction; fusing together gothic and post-punk influences such Soft Kill, Drab Majesty and the Cure with the more abrasive sound of early era PJ Harvey and Chelsea Wolfe.
Crowned a ‘One to Watch’ by The Observer, GHUM's "intensity provides catharsis” and Metro has praised their “darkly dramatic” sound. The band has received extensive radio play across BBC Radio 6 Music, including a visceral live session for BBC Introducing and a much-coveted C-List playlist add on the station. Recent headline shows in London have all sold out, causing The Line Of Best Fit to describe discovering “a band on the rise" and "a live force to be reckoned” with.
THE LINE OF BEST FIT
"GHUM are a welcome addition to the current crop of post punk guitar and bass driven bands that appear to be re-setting attitudes, bashing down walls and creating a scene that is incredibly fertile, all encompassing and inclusive."
