Released back at the beginning of October, Hallan’s latest single “Men” crafts their signature raw sound with a soulful performance. Based in Portsmouth, the post-punk quartet deliver an energetic performance both on stage and in the studio. Featuring aggressive instrumentation and honest lyricism, they let their music do the talking.
Hallan mentioned: “’We are alone on this island. The young men that you see every day are at sea on a piece of land surrounded by a sea of pressure and weight. Live a life of expectation and earn a wage. Cast aside your creativity in favour of a fake lie and never show yourself to the world. To be creative is a weakness and to show emotion might as well be a crime. We are the young men and we feel alone. I feel alone. I’m the doing the best that I can, there’s pressure in being a man.’”
Making a statement with it’s bold nature, the track feels somewhat heavy but powerful. With a fresh indie flavouring, the punk influenced track takes an experimental sound with it’s spacious sound. A huge moment in the band’s career so far.
