The Howl & The Hum have revealed a music video for ‘Hostages’

The band’s debut album ‘Human Contact’ is out today! (May 29th)

To mark the release of their debut album, The Howl & The Hum have revealed a brand new music video for ‘Hostages’

Directed by The Roosens, whose previous work has been nominated for a revered Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, it follows a couple handing over the last items each have as their relationship comes to an end.

Speaking about the video, The Howl & The Hum’s Sam Griffiths says: “This song felt very visual to us: the handing back of possessions after a breakup, the detachment from objects. Luckily, The Roosens had the idea to combine the ideas of social distancing with the breakup within the song. It was filmed in Belgium as the lockdown eased, but shows the attachment to objects in the lyrics, and the splitting of a whole into separate parts, and has two beautiful performances at its heart.”

The release of the ‘Hostages’ video ties nicely with the release of The Howl & The Hum’s debut album ‘Human Contact’, out today (May 29th)!
