Swedish atmospheric post rockers, OH HIROSHIMA, return with their fourth album, Myriad, arriving on March 4th, 2022 via Napalm Records, and introduced with the weighty track, Humane, and its cinematic accompanying video.

For us it marks a somewhat new direction that we wanted to explore and we're very proud of how it turned out. We felt right away that this was the first song of the new album we wanted our listeners to hear. The lyrics revolve around themes of human hubris and the video was filmed, directed and edited by our drummer, Oskar."

I definitely think it’s interesting; it has D-Beat punk, two-step. It’s got everything and it still works together, it doesn’t sound odd. It’s just an off-the-wall psychedelic rock record.
