In an industry where ego often trumps artistic considerations, Italian band shrouded in mystery Hausers has taken a completely different and fully unconventional approach. Silent about the identity of their members and fully committed to delivering experimental music that dives into new territory the band has won significant praise for their first single and video, “Tokyo”. Now giving evidence that this is not just a one off, Hausers has released their second single “Leo”, which continues the story line from “Tokyo” and is even being backed up by a comic book set in the time between both songs. Fans old and new are sure to be extremely excited.
“We are in a series right now with each song telling a chapter of the story with its video,” commented a voice from the mysterious band. “And we are enjoying developing this plot through our music and art. Combining the two forms is something special to us.”
Leo has lyrics that truly touch the heart, spinning around the idea of loneliness and loss but also the need to push on, with the an excerpt hauntingly saying, “Sometimes I wish I could give Up living on and on and (On) Someday...”
Hausers’ remarked about ‘Leo’, “When you are a child there is a thin line between what is real and unreal. It's the cool thing about being a child. No one judges you. All is a dream. Anything and everything could happen. When you become an adult this line is better defined, most of the time, and our choices tend towards the rational. But what happens if you grow up without the skill to decide what is the right side? You could be a visionary adult or you could just become crazy. This is the idea that ‘Leo’ is based around.”
“Tokyo” has had over 52,000 streams on Spotify and all signs are pointing towards “Leo” expanding that reach with the comic and other outreach sure to intensify interest.
The single “Leo” drops on September 13th togheter with it's video on both YouTube and Vevo.
While this happens the band still develops their interesting, innovative sound.
Expect the third release to continue along this path into uncharted territory.
