The Howl & the Hum are a tempestuous 4-piece York born band who give every single upcoming band of 2017 run for their money. Playing as part of Live at Leeds’ ‘Ones to Watch’ day festival, despite still being a fairly niche alt-rock band they’ve already been scouted as a band to keep on your [...]

Hey guys, so a few weeks ago I saw my favourite person on this entire planet and it was honestly so surreal- read my review below and I shall add the link when it features on The Mancunion website- it is currently printed in Issue 12!!   Having seen Mr Plant strolling down Oxford Road [...]
