Video: Hyooman – Kid

Hyooman are a band who I discovered earlier this year through their breezy debut single Half Brain. The Minneapolis, USA-based indie rock band are now back on the blog with their latest Kid. I find their style not too dissimilar to local breakout act Bull. If you like them, definitely check out Hyooman.

As you might guess from the track’s title, Kid is about nostalgia. The instrumentals are suitably light and airy, giving a sense of carefree days. Singer Leng Moua’s vocals are as gentle as I remember, speaking of the loneliness of adulthood in contrast to the friend-filled days of youth. It’s subtle but powerful stuff.

Kid is the first single from Hyooman’s forthcoming debut album Pilot, you can check out the video below.
