Brooklyn-based five-piece Haerts might still be a new band, but their synth-rock sound is that of a seasoned act. The band’s first release, an EP entitled Hemiplegia, is streaming on MUCH now, and to help you out, we’ve broken down each track of this four-song EP for you!
An uplifting track that, Hemiplegia builds from beginning to its climatic end, all the while being guided by singer Nini Fabi’s emotive voice. This song gallops at a steady pace with pitter-patter drum machines and is highlighted by a welcoming guitar riff near the end.
With a warm ’80s synth underneath a repetitive riff and bass beat, Fabi’s vocals are yet again the star of this track, and the band’s music in general. Her yearning ‘oh’s’ wash over the song like a wave of nostalgia, which meets a chorus of harmonies so delightful that you can’t not sing along and/or form your own three-part harmony group. A definite highlight of this EP.
3. All For You
The jangly piano and swelling synths mix together to form a warm foundation of sound for this slow-jam. Its swirling chorus is beautiful and hypnotic at times, a ballad that still utilizes dramatic moments to capture our attention.
4. All The Days
A bouncing bass line guides this song, alongside Fabi’s soaring voice, making this the band’s most bombastic and aggressive track, but in a great way. Fantastic ending to a super compelling EP!
Our verdict: LISTEN NOW!
