“fizzing, relentlessly creative songwriting” – CLASH
“sparkling indie-pop” – DORK
“a band brimming with clever ideas” – THE INDEPENDENT
Good things come to those who wait, HAARM prove this point in abundance on their return with new single, Lovin’ On Borrowed Time.
HAARM have slowly been collecting the accolades that their talent and songs deserve, it’s unusual for a band to have sung the premier league’s theme tune, regarded highly by The Independent, and collect just shy of two million streams on Spotify whilst still being sustainable as an independent force.
On new cut, Lovin’ On Borrowed Time, Haarm make up for lost time with an instant burst of drums and strings. The immediacy cuts through, and delivers onto the listener exactly what music has been missing.
The track calls upon similarities to mature indie juggernauts such as Jungle, Everything Everything, and Foals. The new single shows a band constantly developing and exploring possibilities within a studio.
Speaking about the song the band said: “The song endeavours to elegantly explore the reality of people who are in long-term relationships, acknowledging that this does not necessarily mean that they will never have chemistry with another human being. The lyrics dance around possibilities and potential, day-dreaming and letting imaginations run wild about what could be in this fleeting moment of borrowed time.”
Though their releases have often been sporadic, the band have not lacked in faithful supporters across press, TV and Radio. At press the band have seen widespread support across all releases from the likes of Dork, Clash, The Independent, and DIY Magazine.
Whilst at radio, they’ve received a huge 20 spot plays at BBC Radio One across the introducing show and Phil Taggart, and on top of that Steve Lamacq has supported at 6 Music alongside being playlisted a Radio X.
And if that wasn’t all enough you may have heard them on various shows like Hollyoaks, Made In Chelsea, BT Sport’s coverage of the Premier League.
Thankfully, Haarm are back, and by this new track and the way it sounds, the guess would be for the long haul.
