Low Hum—a.k.a. Hawaiian born and raised artist Collin Desha—is just looking for some personal space.
That’s the sentiment behind his new song, “Room to Breathe.” The lush, psychedelic epic blooms like a kaleidoscopic flower, floating in similar sonic atmospheres as Tame Impala and High Fidelity legends Beta Band.
“This song was the last song on the album to be created. I wrote the tune in a few weeks, much quicker than it usually comes, and I also had a few outside players contribute,” Desha revealed. “The song is about finding space in the noise and cacophony of distractions in our lives today: social media, cell phones, emails—all the instant connections we have been trained to feel the need to always have to respond to. The opening field recording in the song is the subways in Japan.”
“Room to Breathe” is the title track from Low Hum’s forthcoming full-length, slated for release on June 7 on Last Gang Records. Listen to it below.
