“Emma please sit down, I have to tell you something that will really break your heart”. The boys you’ve had all to yourself, up there in Liverpool are about to blow the UK apart!
Smashing a sell out tour to date of the UK, including 2 nights at Bush Hall in London’s Shepherds Bush and The Liverpool Buyers Club, The Hummingbirds are on the road again heading towards the festival season with their sharp suits, killer harmonies and contemporary melodies. The last leg of the tour will coincide with the release of ‘Emma’, the final single from their current critically acclaimed album ‘Pieces Of You’.
Watch Emma video here:
The band are well on their way to breaking the airwaves, already adopted on the football terraces and continuing to amass fans across the UK, with their recent album profiled as a recommended indie release on the home page of iTunes, selling out within hours of going on sale in their home town of Liverpool’s HMV stores and making it’s debut at number 9 in the indie album charts.
These 23 year old independent, working class boys Jay Davies (lead vocals / guitar) Mic Kountis (guitar / backing vocals) Matty Brougham (rhythm guitar) Ryan Lewis (bass) and Richard Smith (drums / backing vocals) deserve their break. Unashamedly drawing comparisons to the greats, ‘Emma’ opens with a cheeky harmony of whistling, the canny Scouse wit evident in the melodic Americana rhythm. The single comes with a recording of their quintessentially retro track ‘Tonight’ which never made it onto the album but is an absolute show stopper and firm favourite with their fans.
If you haven’t already, catch the boys on tour this Summer. Their engaging live show will blow you away, beautifully composed songs performed tight, chatty, and every tune very, very catchy!
