BARELY A MONTH AFTER THEIR POLITICAL PUNK-ROCK SINGLE ‘CIRCUS’, THE HARA RETURN WITH BRAND NEW TRACK, ‘ANIMALS’.
After having their debut festival appearance for multiple large UK festivals – including ‘Download’ and ‘Reading&Leeds’ – and their largest headline tour yet cancelled due to COVID-19, The Hara have not left their fans disappointed. Following on from their fourth EP, We Are The Movement in March and their charting single Circus last month, The Hara have released Animals, bursting with grit and energy.
With each release, the band seem to be exploring darker anthemic rock writing, with roaring guitars, heavier drum beats, and raw and angsty vocals. Animals opens with blaring guitar lines reminiscent of EGO and a manic laugh from Josh, the lead vocalist of the band. Harry Spencer (featured on Tokyo Hit) once again adds a jazzy twist to the track with fiery trumpet lines. The Hara are back with lyrics filled with flippant remarks and no-nonsense metaphors, with some of the heaviest vocals we have heard from the band, “Animals never play fair.”
