Lowland Hum recently released their self-titled sophomore album, leading to an onslaught of positive attention from everyone from iTunes and Spotify to NPR Music, who debuted it on their First Listen stream; NPR cited the indie-folk duo as “Benefiting from a freewheeling, beefed-up studio band, the dynamic range of this 13-song set runs from hushed insularity to ardent expansiveness, alighting on dozens of gradations between.” Popmatters, a publication known for its criticism and analysis of modern media, writes that Lowland Hum is “further evidence of their ability to wield seamless harmonies and a hushed low cast glow.” The same source later featured the first premiere of “Olivia”, upon the duo’s release of the lyric video.
Furthering their ever-growing popularity, the band was just featured on NPR’s World Cafe and Daytrotter, while their single “Odell” first debuted on Earmilk. In addition, the official music video first appeared on Nerdist, who writes that the number is, “…the perfect visual metaphor for Lowland Hum’s atmospheric brand of emotionally intelligent folk.”
The second leg of their album release tour starts on August 20th in Virginia and continues across the country, heading to the West coast before turning back East. Fellow North Carolina natives,The Collection, will join Lowland Hum for the tour, as well, sure to assist in furthering the growth and reputation of the rapidly progressing, Lowland Hum. The band will finish out 2015 with shows up and down the east coast.
