Inspired by post-punk, minimal synth, goth, early industrial, synthpop, coldwave and everything inbetween; New Haunts is a force to be reckoned with. Her latest track ‘Reactions’ is a balance of these influences, and we’re hypnotised by the cold but magnetic nature of her new track.
Speaking about the track, New Haunts (aka Alice) has said: “‘Reactions’ is pretty much about the beauty versus the horror of having emotional connections. I wanted to encompass both the good and the bad by layering softer, dreamier sounds with bleaker, harsher ones. I play around with opposites a lot in my music – it’s not often I find a subject matter which I feel 100% positive or negative about, and that’s a big part of what I love to dissect and examine when I write a song.”
The juxtaposition of themes and sounds work harmoniously on ‘Reactions’, and the single is available as a free download from New Haunts bandcamp now. Listen below, and keep your eyes peeled for her debut album in the near future.
