HANYA Release New Single ‘Monochrome’
Fast becoming staple figures within the emerging indie landscape, Brighton shoegazers HANYA launch immersive new effort ‘Monochrome’, which was released November 17th and available everywhere now.
Presenting their most anthemic offering to date, the quartet’s latest track touches on the influences of US heavyweights Alvvays and Beach House, with its delicate guitars and melting harmonies slotting perfectly into their growing dream pop catalogue, amidst growing plaudits throughout the tastemaker community from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Dork, Gigwise and The Quietus.
Masterfully lead by the soaring vocals and commanding presence of frontwoman Heather Sheret, HANYA’s profile continues to develop at an impressive rate, with BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens) and BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson) spins accompanying previous spellbinding cut ‘Texas’, and with several socially-distanced shows lined up for early 2021, the band are ready to excel on the live front.
Detailing their newest release the group explained: “With a break from live shows, each of us had a chance to reinvigorate our songwriting. It’s difficult when you’re always rehearsing for the next show to really mess around and make music with no real direction. ‘Monochrome’ started off this way, a hazy-pop ballad written on a midi-keyboard. Now we’re all back together, we fleshed out the chaos together and developed the track’s full dream-pop potential. It’s a song about re-connection with what makes you happy, taking pleasure from the little things”.
HANYA have created this sumptuous and dreamy environment, found in the gentle sweeping of harmony, the captivating vocal delivery and the delicate lyrics. This consuming intensity has been created that provides this compelling background to the stunning vocal notes.
