The Hara’s “The Fool & The Thief” Is A Frankenstein Of Pop, Rock, Punk, & Electro

There’s a lot to digest

UK trio The Hara go mad with their latest single “The Fool & The Thief” where they throw all kinds of genres, do some mojo infusion, and turn it into a groovy sonic Frankenstein. At first you might think it’s pop, but then the punchy punk hooks trimmed with an edgy swagger makes it a multi-dimensional treat to your eardrums. Hit play: 

On the track, the band elaborate: “‘Fool & The Thief’ was born alongside [previous single] ‘Black Soul Ceremony’ in Barcelona late last year with our writing companion and good friend Brad Mair.

I seem to remember the process of this song starting with a Twenty One Pilots stylised drum beat that Jack wanted to try out and straight away Brad and I loved the groove so we started to craft a song around the drum beat. Our other motive at the time was to write a great ‘pop’ song and by pop, I mean it in the classic sense of a song, great melodies, structure and easy to remember lyrics without losing the crazy and theatrical edge that is The Hara.”
