HAARM Unveil Their Latest Single ‘Valentine’

Last year Liverpool band HAARM made an amazing debut with the breakbeat driven cut ‘Foxglove’. They then followed-up with ‘In The Wild’ which was a nod to the 90s rave period. Now making their return with track number three, their latest single ‘Valentine’, the group continue to fan the flames as their sound etches closer to an electronic pop side, as delicate paired vocals mix with psych keys and upbeat drum lays.

Batz’s ‘Gameshow Queen’ is Another Fire Hot Offering From the Australian Band

Listen to Lauran Hibberd’s ‘Old Head Young Shoulders’
