Based in Auckland, New Zealand comes Ha the Unclear and their brand new energetic pop-rock track, ‘Big City’ that was released last Friday! The four-piece band has been touring support for Courtney Barnett in the past (which is pretty damn impressive).

‘Big City’ was recorded with Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Popstrangers), in the recesses of the Lab studio complex in Mt Eden. ‘Big City’ details a public transport journey as a bus full of people fail to react appropriately to an onboard emergency. Recent inhabitants of Auckland after making the move from their hometown of Dunedin, the song focuses its lens on big city living. Alluding to bystander apathy and diminished social responsibility, ‘Big City’ pulses and distorts fittingly as it winds its way to its inevitable, repeating refrain “everyone’s anonymous”.

Ha the Unclear Single Release Tour Dates:
May 13 at Leigh Sawmill Cafe (Leigh, New Zealand)
May 18 at Golden Dawn (Auckland, New Zealand)
May 20 at Caroline (Wellington, New Zealand)
May 26 at Space Academy (Christchurch, New Zealand)
May 27 at The Crown Hotel (Dunedin, New Zealand)
