Eagerly anticipated third album from Folk Award nominated duo O'Hooley and Tidow. Produced by Gerry Diver, 'The Hum' takes O' Hooley and Tidow's sound in a new and exciting direction. Where 'The Fragile' explored the vulnerable in our society; the frailty in human relationships, in the natural world and in the individual self, The Hum reveals the pulsing undercurrent of optimism, grit and mettle in migrating people, the oppressed, and the disenfranchised. This album stands tall in the face of deprivation, dictatorship, austerity and suppression, both here in the UK and globally. Belinda and Heidi's desire to confront, explore, reflect and even celebrate is taken to a new level in every sense. 'The Hum' is not about musical prowess, rather it is a nest of ten songs crafted carefully over time by the duo, then further developed by the vivid imagination of Mercury nominated producer (Sam Lee's A Ground of its Own) and multi-instrumentalist Gerry Diver. Gerry's yearning strings, inventive percussion, swooning guitars, autoharp, pedal steel and occasional dashes of electronica flow seamlessly around Belinda's signature piano and accordion playing and their perfectly matched, distinctively unaffected, earthy voices, here, stronger than ever, with even more bold and striking harmonies. Both lyrically and musically, Belinda and Heidi's powerful, thought provoking and deeply moving songs are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of heart. The Hum is a factory, is a mine, is a playground, is a hive, is a garden, is a school, is a village, is a choir, is a forest, is a town, is a person, is a group, is a heart, is a mind, is a voice, is the hum.
