CALIFORNIA, USA (February 28, 2021) – The new band HU3M3N recently caught my attention with a fresh sounding vibe that somehow seems brand new yet comforting like home all at the same time. I was intrigued by the talented gentlemen’s ability to meld a feeling of hard rocking grunge with a beautiful underlying techno mellowness, and had to dig deeper. It turns out the extraordinary new compliation of musicians creating the magic are none other than Wes Geer (guitar, programming, production), Matt Bartosch (vocals), Scott Underwood (drums, percussion, production), and Clinton Calton (bass). As stated very matter of factly on the band’s instagram, “HU3M3N is musicians from #HedPE #Korn #DI but you wouldnt notice”.

Well, I might have not initially noticed the band’s make-up, but I absolutely noticed their mesmerizing melodies coupled with captivating artistic visuals in their videos and social media posts. HU3M3N’s first few video releases on their YouTube are the singles ON3 R3GR3T, 3DGING, LOV3 & D3STRUCTION, and T3MPT3D. Every one of the songs are backed with strong coinciding imagery that show amazing passion and heart.

T3MPT3D dives in with a soothing electronic funk that pulls you along, and makes you crave even more of the feeling created by the stunningly talented gentlemen.

LOV3 & D3STRUCTION is like a glorious rock and roll lullaby. There is a heartbreakingly addictive quality in the vocals that makes you feel everything the artists want you to feel. The rhythm cradles you as Matt’s voice lulls you into compliance, and they leave you wanting more and more.

3DGING hits hard right off the bat making you wanna jump out of your chair and start a mosh pit. The tune is reminiscent of a glorious ole timey carnival show that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The slow down midway through is like a breath of the freshest air that amps you right back up to get you ready for the heavy dose of adrenaline provided just a few seconds later in the track. I hate to play favorites, but well, 3DGING definitely jumps to the front of my mental playlist.

ON3 R3GR3T is another song on the smoother side, and it also carries a tone of sultriness. There’s an urgency in the words that’s backed by the beat and it quickens my pulse to its pace. This newest track definitely lingers in the ears long after the end, and makes me wonder what the heck the truth is and what he really meant. I just hope I don’t have to wait forever to find out like how Mike Patton is still making me wait to find out what “It” is.

Their current discography might be limited, but the tracks they have already released show an enormous amount of skill as well as obvious potential for greatness. Plus along with their new originals they’re having fun showcasing their versatility on other artists’ songs like their super cool version of the beautiful K. Flay’s “High Enough”.

HU3M3N’s first official release, 4RTIFICI4L, will be a cool old school style 7″ colored vinyl single, and it will be released to all platforms, but the exact date hasn’t been announced. Hopefully, it will be soon, but it’s true that you can’t rush greatness. I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait no matter how long it takes, and I’m excited to see what’s in store for the world from these music giants. Until then check out all the places you can catch this amazing new band on social media below.

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
