New Audio: Hummingbird Shares Breezy and Anthemic “Home”

Hummingbird — Felix Lavallard · Vincent Verye · Geoffrey Margain · Timothée Borne — is an emerging yet somewhat mysterious, French indie outfit. Their latest single “Home” is an anthemic and breezy bop featuring strummed acoustic guitar, live drumming, a sinuous bass line, fluttering synths and a rousingly euphoric hook.

While “Home” sonically recalls a slick synthesis of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix-era Phoenix and 80s pop, the song is an optimistic yet kind of bittersweet one that suggests that life is ultimately one big, very long, very wild journey.
