Mmm...Hmmm! with Verity Standen
Mmm...Hmmm! is a playful, poignant musical journey shaped by three exceptional female voices jumping between sound worlds and lyrical styles.
Using intricate vocal techniques and rich harmony, Mmm...Hmmm! holds a magnifying glass up to snapshots of everyday life. One moment a fragile apology, the next a perilous trip to the First Great Western buffet car…Verity Standen’s original a capella songs evoke the awkward, heartrending and hilarious moments that characterise what it means to be human.
'A stunning array of different sounds, harmonising with frightening accuracy... Mmm...Hmmm forces us to listen again with pricked up ears to the mundane and the everyday, treating automated announcements with the same gravity - or perhaps levity - as love and heartbreak.' (Exeunt)
