Why do we like this?

The Hails have released "Situations," the first of two singles from their debut EP releasing in July. The track opens with a soft, intertwining guitar loop, offering listeners a slightly lighter approach than previous single, "Sugar." In that review, I mentioned the band's adaptability and range in genre, which remains evident with this one. From R&B to indie rock, The Hails have incorporated influences from each group member, allowing a full spectrum of music for eager fans.

The five-piece met at the University of Florida and the rest was history. Regarding "Situations," the band had this to say:

"Situations" is about a sense of disillusionment with social pressures and the banality of many social interactions. Its brooding lyrics hide under the guise of a sparkly, vibrant instrumental - much like a person trying to force a smile and "fake this shit" at a party. Musically, it draws inspiration from '70s pop and modern indie, with its driving guitar harmonies, wistful melodies, and colorful atmosphere.

Over this past weekend, they hosted two Zoom calls where fans got to talk with them and have a listening party. Gotta love that relationship!
