Hagana – Fuzzy Punch

HaganaFeaHagana are a trio from Edinburgh, Scotland who combine heavy rock riffs with an unashamed radio-friendly, pop sensibility.

I would say their sound is difficult to pigeonhole, with influences seemingly ranging from early Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Weezer and Queens of the Stone Age to XTC, Tears For Fears.

They have a  local reputation as an exciting and loud live act and recently were out in support of American industrial-rockers Filter.

Their last release, Hagana EPreceived strong reviews but a change in bass player halted progress shortly after. The current line-up of Leo Fox (Guitar/Vocals), David Chisholm (Drums/Vocals) and Gary Pycroft (Bass) has been together since 2011.

‘Fuzzy Punch’ is the first single from their debut full-length album One Year, which will be released in January 2014.

The song’s jagged lead guitar, juxtaposed with the heavily pop-tinged harmonies and chorus are a perfect showcase to the band’s sound. The song is available for free download over on Bandcamp along with the accompanying music video.

We wanted to share this with you now, and expect to check out the album and interview the band early in 2014, but this is a taster you should definitely experience now!
