LISTEN: Hari Debi – ‘Bang’

A slow-burning guitar anthem that celebrates the power of female sexuality, London rockers Hari Debi have shared their latest single ‘Bang’. Accompanied by a smoking set of monochrome visuals featuring vocalist Maddy Jones cutting loose and enjoying herself in front of the lens, the track is a riff heavy ode to female desire that simmers with riotous passion.

Formed of Maddy, Mark Docherty (guitar), Jack Hall (bass) and Luis Bezzi (drums), Hari Debi take inspiration from The Kills, Saint Agnes and Dead Weather to create their bold rock and roll sounds. They released their first EP Loose Thread in 2020 and are planning to share a second EP later this year, with ‘Bang’ being the first taste of what’s to come.

“Musically the song is a metaphor for passion,” the four piece explain about the track. “It burns fast and frantic, then evens out into a slow riff before reigniting to an explosive conclusion.” Through Mark’s killer riffs and Maddy’s fervent vocals, the band celebrate the confidence and autonomy that comes with a healthy sexual appetite, even though women often experience sexist double standards when they choose to embrace their own.

Track Of The Day: Hari Debi – ‘Cabron’

Filled with gritty guitar riffs, snarling vocals and crashing percussion, London based Hari Debi have shared their latest single ‘Cabron’. Lifted from their debut EP Loose Thread, which is set for release on 25th September via We Can Do It Records, the track is a riotous take down of the industry gatekeepers who attempted to stand in the way of band’s authenticity.

Formed of Maddy Jones (vocals) and Mark Docherty (guitar), Hari Debi take inspiration from The Kills, Saint Agnes and Dead Weather to create their bold rock and roll sounds. On ‘Cabron’ – which literally means “dumbass goat” in Spanish – the pair channel their frustrations at a former manager into abrasive riffs and bittersweet vocals. Docherty produced, mixed and mastered the track himself, adding an extra cathartic edge to the track’s context.

Speaking about the track, the band explain: “‘Cabron’ is a tale of seeking revenge on a villainous figure. The figure in question is a seedy ex manager whom Hari Debi parted ways with due to false promises and financial skullduggery. In writing what we thought was a simple revenge story the song became something more: an anthem for any person who feels downtrodden by the actions of someone else. Whether you’re fighting for equality, have just been dicked over, or you just hate your boss, we hope ‘Cabron’ scratches that revenge itch and helps you through the day. Screw the people standing in your way, if you have a dream chase it.”

PREMIERE: Hari Debi – ‘Sick’

An angst-fueled attempt to process feelings of self-loathing and entitlement, London trio Hari Debi have shared their new single ‘Sick’ today!

Formed of Maddy (vocals), Mark (guitar), and Luis (drums), Hari Debi began making music together in 2018. The band are influenced by the eclectic sounds of Nick Cave, Alanis Morissette, and Queens Of The Stoneage, and aim to create heavy music that flows in a similar vein

New single ‘Sick’ is the result of their time spent together, and it’s four minutes of moody vocals, dense guitar riffs and crashing percussion. The lyrics flesh out the frustration that comes with feeling like you’re not being valued, whilst the noises behind them provide a cathartic backdrop to cut loose to.

The band produced the track themselves, and are set to release more new music in the near future. Listen to ‘Sick’ below, and follow Hari Debi on Spotify so you can keep track of all their new releases.
