New Music: Oh Bummer!

Oh Bummer! is the solo endeavour of Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based singer/ songwriter Tanner Houghton.

In collaboration with acclaimed producer The KickDrums (50 Cent, Kid Cudi, Freddie Gibbs), Oh Bummer! displays themes of vulnerability and humility in his music, as can be heard on the nostalgia-tinged soulful new single ‘Going Out of My Mind‘.

“Going Out of My Mind” is the closest thing I made to a ‘quarantine anthem’ during the first few months of the pandemic. The irony is that even before the stay-home mandate, crippling anxiety kept me home anyway. Here’s to everyone who felt stagnant, lonely, and like they were missing out the last couple of years. And here’s to making up for lost time! *clink* This is the second song my producer, The KickDrums, and I ever did together. The original beat I made for ‘Going Out of My Mind’ was acoustic guitar driven, so I was pleasantly surprised when The KickDrums sent back this beautiful sample-based beat.
