Alas, poor Yorick. The day has come.
After a circa year-long process of writing, recording, mixing, and mastering, the South Shore’s finest quartet of sexually frustrated dudes with girlfriends has finally dropped their debut EP.
Recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA, Half Full incorporates quite the range of musical styles, essentially creating one super style which from here on out shall be referred to as Modern Streezer, a clever combination of three bands you can hear in H-A’s music.
Elements of everything from psychedelic rock to pop punk, and emo to funk can be heard. That makes the music pretty enjoyable for lovers of various genres, except for rap, hip-hop, world, jazz, folk, country, pop, grunge – just kidding, that’s not the point.
The point is how talented these guys are in whatever style or element they’re incorporating into their sound. And based on that and pure talent alone, except for the mediocre drumming, this band’s got a pretty high ceiling. Good luck guys. Remember me when I’m more famous than you.
“Someplace Better Than Here” – Ballad about Columbus’ sail across the Atlantic.
