Earlier this year, Baltimore-via-D.C. progressive rockers Hume released a digital version of their dense, dreamy new single "Phasing," and it glides off a wholly different wind than their previous effort, the Sockets Records-released demos collection "Works." Though still led by frontman Britton Powell's vulnerable vocal melismas, their penchant for complex and hyperactive psych-punk counterpoint for a serene, slow-mo layering of organ drone, freaked sample, and tribal drumming. Drummer and go-to visuals guy Wilson Kemp has directed its ecstatically aqueous video in collaboration with Amir Mohebali and several others. Just past the eternally submerged fourth wall, aerobic underwater ballet melds with starkly animated geometric formations in a whimsical trance, expanding and contracting peacefully as though the ocean's tides had entered the poolside.
The Phasing EP is due to drop this fall, featuring "Phasing" and remixes by Glass Window (Protect-U), Dustin Wong, and Doldrums. Hume are also about to go on tour; you can check dates on their site here.
