Watch Holly Humberstone Play “Overkill” and “Deep End” Outside Her House in England for “Neighborhoods”

The songwriter performs tracks from her debut EP in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

Falling Asleep at the Wheel, the debut EP from English singer/songwriter Holly Humberstone, is only four months old, but the project’s soothing indie sounds are as welcome as ever in the tail end of the longest year in human history. The warm guitar tones on tracks like “Overkill” feel particularly appropriate for the winter ahead, helping us to find comfort in the solitude we may be facing during a first holiday season spent away from family.

It’s this track—Humberstone’s favorite from the EP—and her most personal track “Deep End” that she chose to play for us in her “Neighborhoods” session filmed outside her house in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Under quickly moving clouds, and on what looks like a chilly early-winter afternoon, the songwriter plays through both tracks on electric guitar. Make sure to say hi to her mom between songs.
