Track Of The Day: Hadda Be – ‘Another Life’

This was the song I needed to hear on a rainy January afternoon in lockdown. As it blasts through my speakers, Hadda Be‘s ‘Another Life’ has a riotous, live energy that takes me back to sweaty basement bars and the buzz of watching a great band play with the people I love. It’s exciting and it’s hopeful.

The song’s melancholic lyrics (“it covers me in worry, now that’s all I ever know”) are buoyed by jangly guitars, frenetic drums and a joyful, shout-a-long chorus. Marrying indie power-pop with a real post punk sensibility, ‘Another Life’ reminds me both of the Primitives, and that I need to go and have a dance as soon as humanly possible.

Formally known as Foundlings, this (rather-appropriately named) single marks a fresh start for Hadda Be, who return with a refreshed line-up, as well as a new name. With their debut album due in spring, it feels like they’re a band at the height of their powers – and I can’t wait to hear more.


Hadda Be’s debut album will be available on three flavours of vinyl, CD and download via Last Night From Glasgow on 30th April.
