Chillhum Turns Heads With New Single “Dancing (Alone)”

22-year-old producer, songwriter, and musician Ethan Bedell, known under the stage name Chillhum, brings to the table an unmistakably unique and genre-bending style that is clearly a sound crafted by him. Recently Chillhum is coming off a series of single releases that have been well received by indie, electronic, and alternative fans alike. Now, the Los Angeles-based songwriter, producer, and musician is back with another acoustic-electronic hybrid in the shape of ‘Dancing Alone’. Inspired by the distorted sounds of the drums used by artists like Flume or Couro, Chillhum spent time crafting those ear catching samples we heard in ‘Dancing Alone’ before moving onto the guitar part, which is always a consistent hallmark of this artist’s sound. 

“‘Dancing (alone)’ is another one of my personal favorite tracks. I think the initial production/workflow of this song was to this day one of the fastest I have ever had. This Idea felt so perfect to me from the moment I had the drum beat programmed in and it truly was one of those projects that felt like it was writing itself. I had been super inspired by the distorted/alternative sound of the drums used by artists like Flume or Couros, and so I spent a lot of time finding the perfect samples to set the right tone for the song. I then focused on guitar and the main riff came super quickly. The combination of the simple guitar riff and heavy drums immediately made me smile and reminded me of some of my more original sources of inspiration like Slightly Stoopid and Sublime. I really tried to channel that high energy good vibe feeling into the vocals/writing and I was stoked with the result.” – Chillhum
