It's Josh's stunning vocals, Zack's gritty riffs and Jack's punchy drum beats that define THE HARA's sound. Although THE HARA only uses three live instruments, they offer a full live sound through the use of pads, triggers and loop stations, emulating up to thirty instruments on stage. Their music is existentially written for live performance, which you can hear in the energy and bite the band explores in their sound.
THE HARA are Josh Taylor (frontman), Zack Breen (guitar) and Jack Kennedy (drums) from Manchester. They refuse to be pigeonholed and are breaking new sonic ground with their "genre fluid" music. Josh explains the band's mantra: "We want to show everyone that despite what the stats or the pundits say, or all the bullshit bands do for more social media acceptance, that it all really doesn't matter - as long as you're just making a sound you believe in yourself. Thousands of people reject you because you're different, but there are ten times more people than those mainstream fans who accept you and feel the same way you do. If people can become part of a resistance through our music, then that's our mission."
Their brute stage presence has been compared to that of legendary rock greats like AC/DC and Guns N' Roses, with a punchier, angrier sound that draws influences from such contrasting acts as Bring Me The Horizon, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Panic! At The Disco, Lower Than Atlantis, The Hunna, Nothing But Thieves, Muse, Twenty One Pilots, Don Broco, Idles or Yungblud can be discerned.
Anger, energy and an astute exploration of chaos are the ingredients that surround THE HARA, as evidenced by their recent anthemic releases.
