Warm Human

Warm Human is a Chicago-based, Oakland-raised sludge pop project from Meredith Johnston. Mixing ambient textures and synth-pop aesthetics, Warm Human drags her depression to the forefront as a one-woman chamber choir of devastation.

Press for Warm Human:
"Over the past few years, Johnston has proved impressively prolific, releasing a string of radio-worthy singles and album-length projects whose tone ping-pongs all over the place—she mixes up misty ballads and tuneful, club-tinged bangers that wouldn’t sound out of place on Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak." -The Chicago Reader

"These are bold, capital-P pop gestures kidnapped from their native environment and thrown against the wall in new and surprising formations." -Sasha Geffen, UPROXX

"One of the most immediately gripping aspects of Ghastly is Johnston’s voice: a dynamic, tightly-controlled croon that can pacify and energize at different turns, the ostensible culmination of a carefully-planned career arc." - Bandcamp
