GHUM + AUFBAU PRINCIPLE
Indie Midlands Presents GHUM + Aufbau Principle
“GHUM gloss over dark pop with ghostly grunge” – The Line of Best Fit
“Immediately astonish with their electrifying brand of post-punk, but with a bitter and biting edge. The best goth pop that never was but could still be. Band of the night for me” – The Vapour Trail
“Morphing atmospheric pop through a smokey veil of haunting new wave guitar” – Hard of Hearing Music
“Playing Indietracks this summer, the band’s poised, intense set caught the imagination of everyone on site…A taut, wiry performance, ‘I’m The Storm’ matches their post-punk squall to a gothic sheen” – Clash Magazine
“Ghum’s sweeping dark-pop proves they’re a band who deserve to be heard” – Get in her Ears
“This super slice of moody noise pop encapsulates all of the phases of love from obsession and infatuation to giddiness to a fevered masochism”- God is in the TV
Watch the official music video for ‘TV’ below:
Think of psychedelia without flower power, post-punk with nuances of melancholy, art noise extremism, chaos, anguish, anger and shadows wrapped around strident and strained doses of discordance.
Formed in late 2017, Aufbau Principle create caustic and doomed post-punk. Taking influence from the early 80’s dark Manchester sound as well as gothic cinema Aufbau Principle create music from the shards of broken relationships, doomed cityscapes and existential nightmares.
