New Music: Haarm - In The Wild

In The Wild, the second song to be released by Liverpool’s Haarm is just over six minutes long. It certainly doesn’t seem like it. There really are so many things to love here. From the ‘repeated ah ah ah’ vocal snatch, to the drums that sound a little like Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy raging like a beast, to the moment where after about three minutes and thirty seconds, the vocals and beats drop, the song coasts gently down the musical runway and then takes flight. This is the sort of pop that, to continue the plane references, wouldn’t be boarding in Economy, but would be somewhere in Executive Class, sipping champagne and being invited onto the flight deck to meet the captain.

This is what music is about – a song that makes the world seem alive.
