Hayung are a still a fairly new arrival on the scene. They have named their style Doubtstep and you’ll hear that in their minimalist pop songs, music for melancholy doubters and audiophiles alike. Currently, they are writing on their debut and offer a peak into their still evolving songs.
Mixing a classy blend of Interpol-style post-punk guitars with influences and sounds ranging from Lower Dens and Beach House to Morr Music bands such as Ms John Soda, their songs are at once familiar yet new, rough yet classy, hushed yet direct and clear, even with male/female vocal action thrown in for good measure. But this band always was about changes and so they disappeared in December last year, relocated in Leipzig, changed their line-up and are coming back with new songs now. We are more than curious about what they’ve become.
Liitto means ‘coalition’ in Finnish and this one is about sounds: feedbacks, field recordings, noise, glitch beats, guitars, loops and voices. They are self-releasing their debut album “Hirta”, named after a small Scottish island far off the mainland, that week so this is a treat as fresh as it gets.
