The Howl & The Hum - Same Mistake Twice

Credit: Stewart Baxter

Making their exceptional return following 2021's debut LP Human Contact, today sees Leeds based outfit The Howl & The Hum unveil the plans of a second album ‘Same Mistake Twice’, set to be released through Miserable Disco on the 6th September. Announcing the reveal with the record's title track we get a brilliant and exhilarating introduction in to what lays ahead as Sam Griffiths' whirlwind vocals carry forth a self reflection on whether given the chance we would strive to make the outcome any different, all whilst the backdrop slowly teeters towards its explosive finale. Speaking about Same Mistake Twice, Sam goes on to say. "This is an album about Dread. About a very real, everyday dread so many of us feel surrounded by screens showing us how we should be, what a good person is, what a bad person is. It’s about trying to have and handle and process big messy emotions in a world that wants things to be small, simple, and quickly decided. Every person is flawed, every person has baggage, shrapnel they take with them that makes the airport security beep. This album is about acknowledging that shrapnel, poking it, flipping it and seeing what lives under it, and learning to fall in love with the version of yourself full of holes and missing pieces.This is a breakup album mourning the loss of a band, and all that comes with it: ego trips, insecurities, lost friendships, fading love, rekindling old fires and a path to acceptance". Take a listen for yourselves below with the official video directed by Megan McClean & Danny Lavin.
