Hadda Be release their debut album ‘Another Life’, via Last Night From Glasgow.
The album was recorded in five days at Brighton Road Studios between the two national lockdowns.
“There’s a vibrancy and an energy to our live shows, a distinct personality that we wanted to immortalise,” the band say of the long-player.
“The songs were mostly recorded live, with some overdubs here and there. Due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, the recording of the album was delayed twice. By the time we finally managed to get into the studio, we had the songs down to an extent that we recorded most of them in only a few takes.”
The quartet – Amber, Ben, Matthew and Oliver – were previously known as Foundlings and were the Glasgow-based label’s first signing from south of the border, releasing their self-titled five track debut EP in March 2019.
Foundlings had formed in 2018, between their joint hometowns of South London and Brighton, and released two singles, ‘Misery’ and ‘Horizon’, which received airplay on BBC 6 Music and Radio X.
In 2020, with the departure of the band’s original bass player, the quartet changed their name to Hadda Be – after the Allen Ginsberg poem ‘Hadda Be Playing on the Radio’.
