“Kid“, Hyooman‘s latest single, is laced with a sense of optimism and innocence. The music is warm enough to make you feel what the words are expressing. Hyooman is a Minneapolis-based Alternative/Indie Rock band. The band was created in October 2020 as the brainchild of songwriter Leng Moua, who wanted to produce an album at McCoy Seitz’s studio, Casino Time, with his friend and former bandmate (now drummer) McCoy Seitz. Tamara Alswager, Dillon Marchus, and old friend Elise Bremer were eventually added to the band. The band’s music is in between Alex G and the alternative indie rock sound of Grandaddy and Built to Spill from the 1990s and early 2000s.
The song has a strong vintage vibe, but the innovative approach makes it current, and the sound will appeal to a wide range of listeners. The song begins with a pattern of strummed guitar and E. piano chords, which is soon accompanied by a deep bass and drum that steadily tightens the arrangement’s bottom end. The song essentially proceeds with a continuous tune, which draws our attention to the writing, which leads us down memory lane and reminds us of our childhood innocence and desires.
The writing will be the track’s defining feature, since it will make the song current and relatable to many of us. It effortlessly sets the tone and transports us back in time. In terms of lyrics and arrangement, the band is promising, and I am confident that many listeners will agree with me.
