Low Hummer have shared their new single ‘Picture Bliss’.
The Hull band’s latest track arrives during what was meant to be a busy few months for the group, with now-cancelled festival sets including The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Stockton Calling, Long Division and more.
“Picture Bliss was the only song I brought fully formed into Low Hummer and the first we tried as a six piece,” vocalist Daniel Mawer explains. “I’ve got used to cutting and pasting parts together and building layers of songs from drums, bass and keys, but Picture Bliss came to me within twenty minutes of picking up an acoustic guitar and was easy to finish.
“I wrote the song about two strangers who find each other moments before the world self-destructs, they realise how lucky their lives have been, but still feel cheated to have only just met each other moments before the planet collapses. I tend not to write happy songs…. but I’d like to think it serves as a nice optimistic song if you don’t bother to read into the subject matter!”
