Hookworms The Hum on 180g LP + Download

Hookworms return with their new album, The Hum, which follows the Leeds quintet's debut album Pearl Mystic - a record that steadily went on to become one of 2013’s most impactful breakout statements in the UK! Even more ferocious and uncompromising than its predecessor and yet more melodic and focused, The Hum further cements the band’s status as a vital force in British independent music.

The Hum takes the blueprint of Pearl Mystic – proto-punk, garage rock, Washington DC hardcore, 80’s British spacerock – and further stamps it with the band’s seal. Leaner, meaner and more propulsive thanks to the muscular playing of new drummer JN, the record boasts both the most straight-up punk song the band have written to date in eviscerating opener “The Impasse” (“we wanted it to sound like Suicide if they had a full band”, explains MJ) and moments of patient, widescreen beauty only hinted at previously.

“We were writing Pearl Mystic to an audience in the same way your diary has an audience”, says guitarist SS. “It’s written to one but if no one ever reads it that’s not a big deal. This time round though we knew we had a really clear audience, so The Hum is really about different freedoms and constraints – with Pearl Mystic the possibilities were almost too vast, this time around we had a much clearer idea of what the record should be like and that became freeing because we didn’t need to worry about its direction so much."

That word “free” is a good way to approach The Hum, a record that could only be made by a band in total command of their personality.
