North East alternative rock band, Hakara, have just released their latest song ahead of their upcoming EP.
The Newcastle-based four-piece are releasing an EP titled ‘Divine Intuition’ early this year and the lead single ‘Sellotape and Superglue’ is out now.
The track channels bands such as Fall Out Boy and Sum 41, capturing that now nostalgic pop-punk/alternative sound that was rife in the 90s and early 00s.
‘Sellotape and Superglue’ is a fast-paced, catchy rock track. With big choruses and solid hooks, it’s a song that will explode when performed live.
The big vocals howl over the top of raging guitars and tight drum beats. It isn’t long before a small guitar solo breaks out above the rest of the music before we delve straight back into the bulk of the song.
As the song progresses, you are reminded of a pursuit – something that is showcased in the single’s music video. The track builds up until one final eruption of fast-paced rock, emulating bands like Biffy Clyro who end many tracks with bursts of final energy.
Hakara have stamped their name on the local music scene and have won over fans across the country due to their impressive live performances – and I just know that ‘Sellotape and Superglue’ will go down fantastically in a live setting.
The band’s newest release will be available in March – a six-track EP that will feature the single ‘Sellotape and Superglue’. However, you can now listen to the single on the band’s YouTube page.
