The Humms / Press

“The Humms punch and brawl and get physically violent with Rock 'n' Roll. They might win”

“Completely ace garage fun time with The Humms. Lead track "Are You Dead?" has a great surf feel to it with a brilliant pop chorus. Quite Pixies-like in it's approach, but much more melodic with a few twists and turns in it like Mercury Rev on amphetamines - certainly far from the two-chord end of the garage spectrum. If there's any justice in the world this would be a huge hit! "Do The Graverobber" is also totally great, as is the rest of this manic, wildly inventive and goddamn catchy-as-shit EP. Best thing I've heard in ages”

“Their lysergic grave yard take on Rock-N-Roll seems equally inspired by rockabilly, Big Star and Nuggets, and is one of those fascinatingly ‘out of time melodic three minutes at a time’ bands that you come across every so often.”

“Their (Are You Dead?) EP is a brilliant all killer no filler blast of garage pop, switching from the 60s sputnik rock of the title track to the Monkees do Nuggets cheery mayhem of Do the Graverobber!. LSD is Evil is a wonderful squawking yarn with more than a hint of a Boy Named Sue about it, while No One Wants To Be Alone on Valentines Day is simple but highly enjoyable Shins-style singalonga ballad stuff.”

“Are You Dead? (EP) took a mere one second to hook and reel me in!! The fevered WHOOP that precedes the rattling garage groove won me over immediately ; A fantastic release, and if any song is going to top 'Are You Dead?' for Song Of The Year, it's going to have to be pretty special.”

“The songs are simple and enjoyable with the likes of Are You Dead? being as catchy and contagious as swine flu. However highlight for me is the “Southern Comfort” blues sound of LSD Is Evil! that sounds like it’s being played at a bar in a Louisiana Swamp! A great EP that has encouraged me to seek out more.”

“Their old-fashioned garage sound and obvious love for The Cramps were on display, as was the jiggly ass of what looked like a UGA sorority girl. For what it's worth, the dudes who came in late for the dance party that followed seemed to get more out of the dancer than the people who were there for rock and roll. By the end of The Humms' set, the dancing girl was in her underwear, the bass player was naked and half of the audience was on stage - The night was insane.”

“The Humms offer a refreshing change of pace from the current wave of drone and half-hearted rock that seems to have overtaken Athens. Their live shows are extreme, high-energy gigs, vaguely reminiscent of the utterly exhausting Flat Duo Jets.”

“It is really impossible not to love a band that starts with a song like "Brown Haired Devil". Strafottente attitude and rockabilly stomp, taste acid, impregnated with the ears of the poor unfortunate listener”

“Frankly, the idea of The Humms playing at my showcase scares the hell out of me”

Joe Jancowski - Jombuss Entertainment NY/GA

“‘The Humms are a breath of fresh air in this stale copycat music world...We should have more groups that find their own sound.’”

Genya Ravan - Goldie's Garage Show - XM/ Sirius Radio

“Local acts plays what's been described as "Happy Hippie Horror Rock." Imagine the sunny side of '60s garage rock tainted lyrically by mischievousness and a quirky flirtation with evil.”
