A new band on the block hopes to impress a Bristol crowd next month.

York-based band The Howl & The Hum combine their rumbling, melodic dark pop with haunting, evocative lyrics in their newest live show.

The hotly-anticipated second tour comes off the back of their acclaimed sets at the Neighbourhood Festival and Loopallu and their debut tour in the Scottish Highlands.

The band seeks inspiration from The Cure, Massive Attack and The National as well as classic songwriters like Townes Van Zandt.

Sam Griffiths, Bradley Blackwell and Conor Hirons make up the group , who describe their unique music as ‘simultaneously epic and intimate, uplifting yet melancholic’.

The Howl & The Hum will be at Colston Hall’s The Crofters Right, in Colston Street, at 8pm on February 1.

Tickets, priced £8.60, are available from www.colstonhall.org or from 01172 034040.
