Track Of The Day: New Haunts – ‘Reactions’

Inspired by post-punk, early industrial music, synthpop, coldwave and everything in between, New Haunts is a musical force to be reckoned with. Her latest track ‘Reactions’ is a balance of these influences, ringing out with a cold but magnetic energy.

“‘Reactions’ is pretty much about the beauty versus the horror of having emotional connections,” New Haunts explains. “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.”

This juxtaposition of themes and sounds work harmoniously on ‘Reactions’. The single is available as a free download from New Haunts bandcamp now. Keep your eyes peeled for her debut album in the near future.
