Ha The Unclear 'Strangers' National Tour Announced

Ha The Unclear 'Strangers' National Tour Announced

Chris Cudby / Thursday 27th August, 2020 10:00AM

Ha The Unclear have returned to bring a much needed ray of sunshine to what's inarguably been a wild year, with not only a swish new single on the horizon named 'Strangers' but also a whirlwind run of release shows teed up for spring. Already one of the most popular live bands in Aotearoa, with a legion of devotees for their hook-packed 2018 album Invisible Lines (set to be reissued soon), the Dunedin-based crew's latest song ("an ode to togetherness; the intertwining of our stories as we dance and destroy, love and lose our way from birth to death") launches on Friday 9th October — heralding even bigger things to come from the hard-gigging team of Michael Cathro, Ben Sargeant, Paul Cathro and Theo Francis, who last year embarked on a new adventure in collaboration with French imprint Think Zik. Catch them in action at the following dates...

Press release:

On their most comprehensive NZ tour since the release of 2018 album Invisible Lines, and their first release since the Sylvia Massy produced single Julius Caesar, Ha the Unclear are performing six shows around New Zealand in October and November in celebration of new single 'Strangers'; An emphatic celebration of that most common of all ground: temporally mutual existence.

After a huge 2019 in which the band signed with French label Think Zik; spent time filming and recording in Paris; and showcased at MaMa Festival, a European 2020 was scheduled for the re-release of their albums. With borders still at an impasse, they instead burrowed into a boutique North Otago studio and vineyard, leaning hard into the jankiness to produce this new track, invoking the mutilated spirits of ABBA, 70s era Talking Heads and quintessential 80s New Zealand yob rock.

'Strangers' is an ode to togetherness; the intertwining of our stories as we dance and destroy, love and lose our way from birth to death. Bump into a stranger in an elevator, we're all going up (or down) together. 'Strangers' will be released on Friday 9th October via Think Zik.
