Unbreak My Heart
Young Hare owe their influence to the Frankfurt electronic culture. With approaches coming from House, R&B, and Disco, the current goal of the band is to find a new idea of pop music without sounding overly-pleasing. The sound moves along a highly polished surface after a long technical and compositional development process. On the new record, they work with different room sounds, hidden field recordings from greenhouses, reduced guitars, programmed steel drums, and doubling the acoustic drums with an MPC. Expected rhythms and cuts are erased and manipulated; in their own sense, the tracks are long and stretched-out. Sometimes music can't be long enough. A continuous self-sufficiency without fast changes evolves that can be translated to movement and dance. The sound structure is completed by a voice used as an instrument that creates different levels, turning into distinctive moments of the record, tremolos tumbling through vocal loops, and an unmistakable falsetto defining the vocal parts. The imperfect human component mixes clearly constructed samples in the recordings as well as at live concerts.
