The Eerily Beautiful New Single from HEALYUM — See the Video Here

Collecting comparisons to Lorde, Haim and London Grammar whilst, at the same time,  inviting  similitude to Gary Numan and Depeche ModeHealyum’s debut single ‘Fools Eyes’ is about to be released.

Healyum is a 5-piece band consisting of siblings Jeaná, Katie and Jed Healy, along with Nathanael Degning and Pip Benjamin all based in Bedfordshire, UK.

Their songs have deep-damson vocals, and drums that thump with hollow effect — sounds that creep into your heart.

Healyum rect2We have been listening (again) to Fools Eyes:

This has dark waves of ringleted sentiment that curl around the main sonic structure.

The vocal (from 15-year-old lead vocalist and songwriter Jeaná ) recalls Florence. Masterful and authoritative.

The bass (Pip ) pricks the surface before small streams of synth (from Jed) ripple darkly across the pool.

This is eerily beautiful. A delight for glooming nerves.
