"Video premiere: Low Hum, ‘Sunburns’"

Like so much of our everyday lives, Low Hum’s video for the song “Sunburns” is about keeping your head above water. Here, director Moxie Bellucci takes songwriter Collin Desha’s psychedelic jam about love — of the ocean, of another person — and turns it into an epic struggle. “‘Sunburns’ is about the allure and thrill of taking a chance on (and possibly losing) love,” Desha says. “It deals with that moment of realization as well as how untimely this experience can be. The creative direction of the video gave the song a new perspective and weight by exploring a first-person narrative, where we see the literal struggle of our protagonist drowning. I think we can all relate to that need to survive and this incarnation of “Sunburns’ highlights the motivation to hold on.”

Which is exactly what Desha has been doing since his days as guitarist in Sun Drug/Vanaprasta. “Sunburns” is the second of three singles Low Hum released last year via Hit City U.S.A., all made in his home studio in Silver Lake and ranging in tenor from Elliot Smith-inspired folk tunes to soul to fuzzy psychedelia, all sonically bent as if they’ve been out in the sun too long. He’ll swim against the current to release more this year. - Buzzbands.la


Low Hum is the new project of Collin Desha (formerly of Vanaprasta and Sun Drug). Out of his home studio in Silver Lake, he creates songs filled with dreamy psychedelia and groovy rhythms perfect for a sunset dip in the ocean. Here’s his latest beach-inspired single, “Sunburns,” which was released via Hit City U.S.A. - Free Bike Valet


Still working on that hot first release.



A cinematic romanticism rolls throughout Low Hum's music, befitting the sort of larger than life moments that carry our dreams. The solo project of Collin Desha, Low Hum's early musical offerings carry a sense of risk taking in the face of emotional uncertainty, evolving with an unbridled optimism and assured confidence. 

Written, produced and mixed at Desha's home studio in Silver Lake, Collin found inspiration in his relationship with the ocean, conceptually entwining his approach to surfing and making music. The results are incredibly emotive tracks that nod to Elliot Smith, Tame Impala and classic soul, distorted in their tones but pure in their messaging as they exude peaceful confidence in ebbs and flows. Just as the sea may embody nature's most extreme violence and calm, Low Hum's fuzzed out ballads are at once aggressive psych jammers balanced with a range of vulnerability that comes crashing ashore.
