Formed in the wintery beginnings of 2016, Hull’s Lumer forged their cryptic post-punk sound playing high octane shows throughout the city, adding a synth to their sound at the turn of autumn and the band are making their mark across other cities.
This 4-piece set of troubadours are channeling their inner 90’s alt rock to great success, creating their own brand of raw post-punk material that is both exciting to the eyes and pleasing to the ears. These lads are amongst a great crop of talented individuals, crafting something special with alternative music out of Hull right now.
With a new single that landed on the 16th December, fresh out of Warren Records titled Futile, this song is anything but the definition of Futile “incapable of producing any useful result; pointless.” Infact, it is quite the opposite. The results are gritty and catchy with a raw energy that makes us want to get up and stand for something.
“LUMER’s futile is ferocious” Huw Stephens
“If you like buzz, gravelly low slung bass and grit in every orifice, you have probably come to the right place” – RAW RAMP
“Crafting the perfect scuzzy track, Lumer’s ‘Futile’ is a crescendo of fury and passion topped by knife-edged riffs and a whirlwind of roars.” – Mysticism Music
”Lumer have a dystopian musical aesthetic pitched perfectly somewhere between Bauhaus and Nirvana with bass distorted to the edge of recognition.” – Fred Perry Subculture
