Formed nearly 2 years ago, Haus are an accomplished London six piece with a live act that’s fit for the festival season. I trekked from one end of London to the other late last year to catch them at The Finsbury having been at another gig and they did not disappoint. Since then they’ve picked up some some noteworthy gigs including a string of live dates with rising indie stars JAWS (fitting in a date with – ahem – S Club 3 along the way!).
“Ceasefire” is their latest single which they’ve accompanied with a live session filmed at FreeFall Studios. It’s the perfect introduction to the band’s sound if they’re new to you as Jack Bushell (Vocals/Synth) and Ashley Mulimba (Vocals/Guitar) sing over the jaunty rhythms provided by Ellis Mortimer on Bass (a role he also performs in Chasing Grace’s live shows), Lyle Simpson (Drums), and Sam Kelly and Daniel Hylton (Guitars).
The track has already been picked up by Amazing Radio for airplay and you can find more of their back catalogue on their sound cloud page. Hopefully we’ll be hearing a lot more recordings over the rest of 2014, but in the meantime be sure to catch them live if they’re heading your way (and if not – head their way).
