“I’m going to be honest with you guys,” says a fan of The Hum’s on their Facebook page, ” I clicked a link to your band a few minutes ago. I wasn’t expecting much from a high school garage band. Boy was I wrong”. And boy, was that guy right. I spent some time sifting through Bainbridge Island’s The Hum’s Facebook page: not long ago, they were playing high school talent shows, but you wouldn’t guess that just by listening to them. Their sound is a fantastic blend of youthful experimentation and an astute draw on their more “mature” influences, which they list on their page as Band of Horses,  Coldplay, and Death Cab For Cutie. With each member of the band unafraid to transition to different instruments including keys (they’ve even got a keytar!), trumpet, and sax, the end product is an eclectic ambience of jangly guitars, energetic vocals, and totally danceable drum beats. Catch them this Friday at The Charleston.
