While New Inheritors consisted of symphonic sounds and dark lyrics, Wintersleep's latest, Hello Hum, is layered with electronic elements, bouncing melodies and more feelings of uplift than the band's most successful record to date, Welcome to the Night Sky. Hello Hum, a record that is essentially about heartbreak and romantic longing, somehow manages to give hope despite distant vocals that sometimes sing about losing it. "Hum" is a great introduction, a phenomenal and complex concoction that includes distortion, electronica and a faint piano melody that both trudges and swings., while the peak of positive energy is reached on "Resuscitate," a hum-worthy song that feels like a harmonious ping pong ball.
