Although only five tracks and less than twenty five minutes in duration, the EP (available on bandcamp), is able to to take the listener on an extended emotional journey. Unrestrained joy is counterbalanced by drifting melancholia, enlightened meditative contemplation usurped by dour introspection with the music laying as diary entries to moments in life.

The closer, which serves as a summation of what has preceded, is Something Else.

Sulky Boy

An intriguing track which distills emo, maths-rock and indie-dance in to a tasty concoction of elongated vocal, angular guitar and springing drum combinations yet rather than  becoming confused the listener finds themselves tapping alongside while gazing wistfully out in to the middle-distance.

HAUS – Shameless – Single Review

It was in June of last year the the English alt-indie quintet HAUS last featured.

HAUS - Shameless

HAUS

The latest song to surface – Shameless – which was released last week finds them in more frowning countenance than previous songs of their featured – contemplating, as it does, on the ease by which people feel pressured to conform with the local environs thereby creating silos of exclusion rather than laying out welcoming mats of inclusion.

The darker clouds of the song, driven by a fractious guitar, which conceptually does need to be taken in the context of their musical home territory, allows HAUS to display a greater weave to their catalogue and a tighter connection with their natural audience as well as bringing those of wider fringes in to the fold too.

Shameless is available on Amazon.*

Jordan Kent

Predominately hip-hop infused guitar led music, Jordan Kent also expresses thoughts with different texturing and the antepenultimate of the dozen tracks Try is one of those.

Written in the early hours Try is a track of sad atmosphere combining acoustic guitar and keys to deliver a melancholic soundtrack which despite the dour countenance is a song of inclusion and contemplative optimism.

A five track plus one remix release that showcases their blend of styles with the songs reflecting on the societal breakdowns of the ’10s along with pondering on more philosophical thoughts about life in general.
