The band’s new EP entitled “Comfort” will be released on February 28.
Here’s the official statement:
I’m very excited to tell you about a well kept secret that’s been buried beneath the snow for a little too long, Humaana.
The cold months of Bostons chill, layering on sweaters and jackets can only keep you so warm. The warmth of a nice studio, adding layers of instruments and producing music that warms you on the inside can be just as much of a necessity to make it through those freezing times. That’s just what the members of Humaana had in mind when forming as a studio project in the Fall of 2009. It was also way to keep the members of Humaanas’ sanity during Bostons Winter months.
Bassist Aaron Bernard and drummer Tim Manning had been playing music together for years in their previous band Late Nite Wars and had recorded all of their releases at Format Audio by engineer Ryan Stack. After establishing a friendship with Ryan, Humaana was formed with a goal to write and record as much material as possible without any genre constraints.
Bands like Karate, The Police, Phoenix and The Kinks have laid the maps in front of Humaana as guiddance for thier sound. Humaana serves as an outlet for it’s members to play music closer to those influences while taking a new path to explore themselves.
Having been friends with Aaron and Ryan, I accidentally stumbled upon Humaana and was into it from the first listen. I couldn’t believe that the two of them never told anyone about what they had been doing behind closed doors…I guess that’s their business. But they could have at least told me that they were doing a band too. Humaana is great indie rock and I’m excited that Panic Records gets to be a part of it.
Comfort was written and recorded in the Fall of 2010 between a series of long breaks due to careers and touring. Comprised of a collection of songs that had been heavily refined until finally ending up on Comfort. Humaanas Comfort EP will appeal to any fan of indie music and in need of the warmth only provided by a great song. Comfort will see the light of day on Vinyl, CD and Digital formats February 28th via Panic Records.
