With a fistful of peppy new songs for the live set, and the release of live sessions from Paris, Ha the Unclear are set to whip around Aotearoa this winter to bring these all to life! Starved of shows after two covid-axed tours, the out of the water tour marks a welcome return to stages around the country.
Originating in the southern gothic harbour town of Ōtepoti Dunedin, Ha the Unclear migrated northwards to Auckland where they expanded their cardboard-box bedroom routine into the highly popular, fully realised four-piece ensemble of now. Ha the Unclear’s knack for creating thoughtful, mind-bending stories have seen them gather acclaim from everyone from the BBC to Entertainment Weekly. Their lyrical stories include a love story from the perspective of a coffee table, astronauts trapped in orbit, and a break-up via an intercom. The band compacts these wonderful narratives into energetic, quirky pop songs and a spirited live show which has seen them support the likes of Courtney Barnett, The Shins, and The Dandy Warhols. Ha the Unclear appeared at MAMA Festival in Paris just before the pandemic closed off borders and are now picking up where they left off with an EP release in September and their album release scheduled for January 2023.
