Lowland Hum

The folk boy/girl group Lowland Hum gives listeners a break from the typical heavy pop that many current duos dish out. The melodic harmonies and sweetly poetic lyrics of their vocals pair masterfully with the steady and soothing musical elements and subtle pop sound of their tracks. Their most recent album Thin was just released in February of this year.
