brayedee’s Wistful & Hypnotic ‘The Hum’

The Hum

Brayedee (aka Brady) is an emerging independent alternative singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist producer who made his professional recording debut in 2021 with the single “Running in the Rain.” That track introduced a talented young artist with a genre-fluid sound.

In June brayedee released a 5-song EP follow-up to that debut. The record takes us on a hypnagogic journey that begins with a bedroom producer’s lo-fi guitar and ends in an ambient cloud on the celestial plane. Named for a mysterious audio phenomenon (Canada’s Windsor Hum) The Hum sounds like the soundtrack to a melancholy dream.

The Hum is the brand new EP from brayedee, released worldwide via all major streaming services on June 25, 2022. “Burden” opens the record with a lo-fi acoustic emo vibe. A minimal beat and synths gradually enter the mix as the singer delivers a wistful reflection. “Old Dog” follows in a similar vein and features some really nice guitar work. “Softly” follows with a deep, reverb-soaked minor-key piano. Ambient synths expand the horizon as Brady alternates between a quiet and reflective meditation before transitioning to Jeff Buckley-style wordless falsetto.

The title track instrumental opens in a similar ethereal mood. Throughout the first four minutes, piano and synth chords float together on a cloud. Then the track explodes into a fantastic Indie Rock cacophony. The closer “Light at Limbo’s End” guides us to infinity in a Brian Eno-inspired dream of strings, synths and guitar.
