Local Band of the Day: Hallan
Hallan are one of the best post-punk bands to come out of Portsmouth music scene over the past few years! The four-piece create music that is jam-packed full of catchy riffs, lyrics and attitude. Hallan are a must-see live, at least when gigs return anyway! ‘Habit‘ is insane live with hooks so catchy it’ll be stuck in your head for days, whilst ‘Yesterday (With Him)‘ is a stadium-sized tune.
Hallan recently signed to Nice Swan Records and released their latest single ‘Modern England‘ via them. The track since went on to be playlisted by BBC6 Music and also played on BBC Radio 1 amongst other national airplay.
Hallan contributed ‘Yesterday (With Him)’ to Brutalist Records ‘Save Our Scene’ cassette release which featured 23 local bands/artists and is in support of the local music scene. This release of 100 cassettes and 100 t-shirts sold out but you can still support the Portsmouth Music Scene by purchasing a download of this release.
The band released their single ‘Modern England’ on 7th August 2020 and also sold a limited run of 50 cassettes (via Brutalist Records) to support this release that sold out in less than 48 hours.
