Haarts – Seasons Change

 

haarts

     Confirming their impressive introduction though their well-received debut single Article Way and the following Spitting Image release, UK indie rock band Haarts unveil new song Seasons Change, another entrancing encounter reinforcing and extending the emerging potency of the band. Like its predecessors, the band’ third single seduces rather than seizes the imagination, making an intrigue coated persuasion which almost licks and smooches the listener into submission as it builds a fiery brew of emotive intensity.

     The Cumbria hailing Haarts since forming, the members meeting at secondary school, has continued to build a potently ascending presence and reputation, earning their merits through an array of live shows and performances locally, including recently supporting The Boomtown Rats. This strong tempting of fans and passions has equally worked on the media through their releases, regular radio attention locally and nationally matching responses of the underground media.

    Produced by Gavin Monaghan, Seasons Change almost ambles into view, a simmering ambience wrapping the ears as a guitar begins the evocative narrative of the song. The distinctive tones of vocalist Philip Hampson as on previous songs, provides a riveting presence and texture within the stirring craft and depth of the sound. A rhythmic recruitment of the emotions also begins its seductive work coaxing and punctuating the expressively brewing and widening melodic atmosphere. There is a dramatic heart to the song which leans agreeably on every aspect of the track and though it never exactly explodes into life, Seasons Change envelops and involves everything from ears to thoughts, senses to emotions in its brooding breath and intensive passion.

    The single does not quite match the heights of the previous two releases but with the individual craft of the band members uniting for an enthralling design showing the further depth and width to the songwriting and sound of Haarts, the song reaffirms all the startling promise already unveiled by the band. Seasons Change is simply further proof of a band undoubtedly going places.

Haarts- Article Way

Making their debut with first single Article Way, UK indie rock band Haarts present themselves as a rather enterprising and intriguing proposition, one with a magnetic presence soaked in rich promise. The single is a dramatic entrance though one which seduces rather than demands attention with the result ultimately the same, full persuasion. It is a potent encounter, one which places the band firmly on the radar.

Article Way is the first of a trio of singles to be released and is an impressive start for a band whose founders met at secondary school. Since starting the Lake District hailing quartet has built a strong local reputation for their live performances, shows which has seen the band regularly playing 100 minute live sets in pubs and clubs. Their sound is a dark but vibrant form of indie rock, its brooding tones musically and vocally reminiscent of Editors but fuelled by a refreshing energy which sets the band out from most. Produced by Bryan Wilson, the single leaves a very healthy appetite for the band in its wake and a hunger for their upcoming releases.

The opening sharp shard of guitar instantly brings Article Way into focus especially when the expressive baritone vocals of Phil Hampson join the welcoming embrace. Shadows are soon infiltrating the crystalline breath of the song through the heavy bass and rhythmic caging of the drums but equally as it expands the track unveils an acidic melodic elegance and tempting which fires up the emotions. The body of the song is cavernous, offering a deep expanse of emotive resonance around the thumping heart of its declaration and almost exhausting climactic atmosphere. It is an enthralling provocation of the imagination and an immensely pleasing lure into the band for thoughts and passions.

Though only one song, Article Way suggests that Haarts is an emerging presence with extremely potent horizons ahead of them, roll on the next single…
