The Hummingbirds – Out Of The Rain

11986996_1000768539983199_3795348705184479822_nA sensational Liverpool five-piece, The Hummingbirds, are ready to release their first EP, Out Of The Rain, due out November 6th 2015 on their own label, Gladstone Recording Co. Heavily influenced by music from the 50’s/60’s their sound takes on a vintage vibe but with a modern day approach to the music of that era; and like many of the bands that come out of Liverpool, The Hummingbirds have that incredibly desirable sound.

The EP, Out Of The Rain, is the first for the 23 year old lads but features some solid professional sounding recordings and well written songs.  Classic acoustic Americana feel good folk songs about love and heartbreak put to wonderfully written arrangements such as their songs ‘Out Of The Rain’ and ‘Home’. ‘Awaiting Your Call’, which is also featured on the EP, is a well written emotionally spirited song that begins slowly with piano and has a great dynamic build to a more upbeat rock song as it progresses with the layering of creative instrument parts. Citing influences such as The Eagles, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, and The Hollies; The Hummingbirds keep true to that same classic vibe but put their own unique emotionally inspired take on each of their songs.
