Having parted ways with their previous frontman over a year ago, HAUS are storming the scene with former guitarist/backing vocalist Ashley taking up the lead mic. Revealing their refreshing, upbeat sound, HAUS are delving into a more intricate, focused sound, enlightening their determination, and passion for music.

Their new track “BLINDED” was one of the first tracks featured on Radio 1’s Huw Stephens’ show last week, highlighting their perseverance in the London music scene.

“BLINDED” is a tense, tropical trance of a track, reeling from high waves of layered, plucky guitars and persistent percussion, emphasising the urgent tone of frontman Ashley’s vocals.

Having listened to “BLINDED” and ending up stranded on a deserted island, I ventured inland to find HAUS, and talk to 2 members of the band about their dreams and experiences over the past year.

This friendly chat with Ashley and Ellis should get you excited to listen, and then go see them live.

HAUS play a secret location in London on 17 December. Keep your eyes locked on their Facebook for more details.
