UK band Hallan takes us on a satirical musing of modern day humanity in their latest single “Hands Up.” Filed with gritty riffs and punk attitude, “Hands Up” pours you with a series of explosive beats as the band starts breaking down all the weird ways our modern society and people have defined what is considered the ‘norm.’ There is a western edginess to the track that deliver cowboy vibes as Hallan goes on a semi-abstract meditation that feel somehow reasonable and questionable:

Speaking of the track, frontman Conor explained: “Our sound changes depending on our agenda at any time, finding a different stride with every step. With ‘Hands Up’ we found ourselves dropped into a western rerun armed with a fiercely cowboyish twang on our six string shooter. We wanted to forth a thematic, semi abstract prose, attacking businessmen and penny pinchers in a flurry of suitably delirious criticisms.”

“Hands Up” is from their upcoming debut EP Reporting Live From The Living Room Floor, which will be out on July 16th.
