huma

The North Jersey-raised trio (two of its members, siblings Brian and Laura Cervino, are originally from Wyckoff, and the third, Jess Rees, is from Hawthorne) made waves in the New Brunswick music scene begining in 2002 before moving to Seattle five years later. The band blends synthpop, folk and rock into unique sound that would feel right at home in a Zach Braff movie. Their sound combines acoustic and electronic elements in gentle shoegaze-influenced indie rock.
