GHUM | Future Yard

We’re delighted to be welcoming ghost-grunge, post-punk outfit GHUM to our stage this autumn, off the back of their ferocious 2022 debut album Bitter.

Deceit. Indignation. Catharsis. Just a few of the themes that simmer and spill from Bitter, but while the aforementioned subjects might sound a little savage, the album is also brimming with hope and resolution. Pieced together from old, half-written songs and new sonic sketches, it’s in many ways a portrait of everything GHUM have done so far since their formation in 2016. The result is a raw, swirling slice of melancholic grunge rock, pinned together by pounding drums and signature heartfelt vocals. Come experience it live with us this November.

Tickets on sale now.

It’s an album has been a long time coming. The band – Laura (vocalist), Jojo Khor (guitar), Vicki Ann (drums) and Marina MJ (bass) – met back in 2016, over Gumtree. Each of them hail from different parts of the world – Spain, Malaysia, London and Brazil – and bonded over bands like Warpaint and Hole, Pixies and The Cure.

Everything snowballed swiftly after meeting. They released their debut EP Ghum in 2017, followed by The Coldest Fire in 2019. Those initial years were defined by back-to-back gigs and tours around the UK and Europe, with support slots with the likes of Dream Wife and L.A. Witch. They also received praise in a bunch of music publications, from The Fader and CLASH to The Line of Best Fit to the Guardian, who named them “Ones to watch.” In January 2020, their track “California” debuted on the Steve Lamacq show on BBC Radio 6 to wide acclaim.
