Low Hum are a band formed around the nucleus of Hawaiian guitarist Colin Desha, now based in Los Angeles. Both places are famed for their surf, so it's no surprise that Low Hum's music has its roots in surf-rock - although Desha along with Parisian drummer/producer Jules De Gasperis have a vitality and freneticism that shifts it outside of that narrow pigeonhole. Talking about the new track, Desha says:

“‘Strange Love’ is a song that was loosely inspired by Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. All of his films have been of great interest to me and I try to incorporate that inspiration into my music. For this song, I could identify with Dr. Strangelove's obsession and how he let that completely take him over. That infatuation inspired me to write a song about allowing yourself to let your id out, regardless of the repercussions.”

New song and video 'Strange Love' introduces Low Hum with a psychedelic swirl, chock full of unhinged humour - it was inspired by Dr. Strangelove after all. It's just the first taste of a forthcoming debut album called Room To Breathe (out June 7th), and delving into their previously released material suggests that Low Hum have plenty more gears and dimensions to work with beyond the ecstatic waywardness of 'Strange Love'.
