Lowland Hum Share New Video, New Album GLYPHONIC Out 5/10

Lowland Hum have shared the final single from their upcoming album Glyphonic out May 10. Titled "Eye In The Sky," the new song is a softly stirring confrontation with the past, lyrically poignant and melodically consoling at once. The band worked with Poemas de Barro to create a stunning video, matched in evocative quality to lines like "There's an eye in the sky / Satellite, recording our lives / So smile." Lowland Hum have just concluded an eventful spring tour, packing rooms across the country and performing charming sessions for The Wild Honey Pie, Paste Magazine, Audiotreeand City Winery. They'll celebrate album release with a hometown show in Charlottesville on May 10 at The Southern Cafe and Music Hall.

The band say "'Eye In The Sky' is a little sci-fi ditty, reflecting on memory and memory preservation. We were listening to a lot of Frank Sinatra around the time when we wrote it and I think his music definitely had an influence the construction of the song's melody."


Today's release follows a collection of gently compelling singles: "Salzburg Summer," "Raise The Ring," "Slow," "A Drive Through The Countryside," and "Will You Be," all of which have earned affectionate attention from editorial including Billboard, Paste and Garden and Gun among others as well as tastemaking playlists like Spotify's Fresh Folk and Amazon's Fresh Folk & Americana. Lowland Hum are an art-folk duo composed of husband and wife, Daniel and Lauren Goans. Creators of the #SupportQuietMusic movement, the band maintain that in an increasingly polarized and noisy cultural moment, vulnerability is powerful and restraint stands in welcome contrast to new, bombastic norms. New album Glyphonic is the purest distillation of this thesis to date, a masterful exploration of stillness in rising chaos, out May 10.
