Hajk announce new single ‘Keep Telling Myself’Out tomorrow, Nov 23rd, via Jansen
New album ‘Drama’ out February 15th 2019
‘Drama’ – of the interpersonal kind – that’s what Hajk have turned their focus to. The band burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut album last year, garnering support around the world as well as making a name for themselves in their home country of Norway. Now, the highly anticipated follow-up ‘Drama’ has been announced for February 2019 – a record that both pulls at the heartstrings and urges you to dance away your sorrows. Lead single and first taste of what is to come arrives in the form of the bubblegum-flavoured new cut, ‘Dancing Like This’. It’s a lyrically melancholy and wide-eyed love song, with an addictive melody that looks to sugarcoat your tears.
With their second album, ‘Drama’, a more self-assured band reveals themselves. Sharpened by more studio experience, they have once again produced the record themselves, taking extreme care over every second and minute detail of their work. Blending analogue and digital sounds, switching between programmed arrangements and live takes from the studio, drawing on three lead vocalists and an assortment of guest musicians, Hajk conjured up whatever was necessary to fulfill their creative vision.
The title ‘Drama’ relates to the drama of humanity and a somewhat naïve yearning for love in a world in which love can sometimes seem in scarce supply.
‘Drama’ is due for release on February 15th via Jansen Records.
