I went to my first live show of the year over the weekend, so thought I would put the spotlight on the band we went to see, which is The Howl and the Hum. They are a young band from York in Northern England.

They were surprisingly good. The singer, Sam I think, has an amazing voice and is quirky in the best possible way, keeping the crowd (all 250 people of them 😂) engaged. Then mentioned they just finished recording their debut album. I will definitely be buying it, because they were pretty excellent live. They are pretty ‘genre fluid’ from song to song, which I like.

Back when you weren’t successful
Back when you were interesting
Back when you we were in the same boat, making waves
Back in my head now
You’ve made yourself very hard to forget now
Do you remember that bridge in the
Midlands they pulled apart to see just how it stood
But now you’re something big in the city
So cruel to say
But its such a pity
So cruel to say
But I hope you lose your way
Back when we were inseparable
Back when you were a reckless one
Back when we get lost to get lost
Do you remember that mess?
Now I return to Godmanchester
Back to the bridge
And I see it still standing there
And I’m still that lost kid
Wrapping his head around forever
But now you’re something big in the city
So cruel to say
But its such a pity
So cruel to say
But I hope you lose your way
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
Waiting on Godmanchester Chinese Bridge
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
And if you’re lost
I will be waiting
Waiting on Godmanchester Chinese Bridge
Waiting on Godmanchester Chinese Bridge
