Early Humans is a indie-rock/pop band from Nashville, TN comprised of songwriters Hart Williams and Ryan Vaniman, along with other musicians who help fill in the gaps.
Hart and Ryan began collaborating in 2009 and have been making music together ever since. Their partnership has seen the rise and fall of a number of bands, the most recent of which dissolved in 2015. These breakups paved the way for a uniquely collaborative project between the pair, who shifted their focus towards common goal songwriting and recording. And thus, Early Humans was born.
Stylistically, they can be associated with a variety of bands such as Grouplove, Death Cab For Cutie, Coldplay, Say Anything, Saves the Day, Built to Spill, Wilco, or Brand New—and a list of their influences could carry on much longer. Their songs and hooks are simple and addictive and while their arrangements maintain a colorful complexity. Their music has been described by The Deli Magazine as “electrifying” and “infectious”.
The duo take a more unconventional approach in their process, recording in their home studio in Nashville—eschewing outside producers or engineers for all of their past work. Their upcoming Fall 2018 releases promise a slight departure from the strict “guitar-driven rock” that defined much of their debut album. Stay tuned.
