Irish hip-hop forerunners Hare Squead are back with a brand new track, the first from an upcoming third EP – and you can get a first listen to it ahead of its release tomorrow on Dork.
Titled ‘Handle Bars’, their latest cut is a genre-free, smooth flowing bop. Based around a heavily autotuned hook and switching between dreamy haze and fast-moving staccato lines, it’s both pleasingly addictive and just off-kilter enough to command full-focus attention.
Tony Konstone says, “We all love in different ways, and sometimes our way of love may not be accepted by the person you wanna give it to. But if all that toxic shit isn’t there, then you need to accept your differences and nurture each other. You have to change yourself for who you love, and vice versa. Whether it be with friends, siblings, a stranger you’re trying to get to know, or in a romantic way. As hard as it is, accepting that is love too. It makes that shit fun.”
‘Handle Bars’ is the first taster of Hare Squead’s third EP, which is set to follow this spring. The release will feature tracks that have found lyrical inspiration from dreams.
