'SECRET LIVES OF FURNITURE' by Ha the Unclear is OUT NOW

'SECRET LIVES OF FURNITURE' by Ha the Unclear is OUT NOW on iTunes & Bandcamp





Now with a brand new name, Dunedin/Auckland group Ha the Unclear (formerly known as Brown) release the second single from their forthcoming album Bacterium, Look at Your Motor Go.

Their latest single, 'Secret Lives of Furniture' is an unsettling anthropomorphic account of a coffee table's infatuation for its owner; recorded and produced by Oli Wilson (Males, The Chills, Knives at Noon) with engineering assistance from Mike Holland at Dunedin's Albany Street Studio.
Its release follows a national tour and NZ On Air video funding after the success of the singles 'Apostate' (#1 Radio One 91fm, #1 Kiwi FM, #4 RadioActive) and 'Picking Out a Shirt For Work' (#1 RadioActive).

Skewed and catchy, Ha the Unclear's sound is delivered with unaffected accents and constructed with a blend of off-kilter pop and 1960's influenced folk-rock.
Their output teeters on the fence of the strange and the familiar, while their lucid lyrics are awash in layered harmonies and supported by a charmingly dynamic rhythm section.
The group's earnest subject matter explores ponderously frank bedroom philosophies, seasoned uncertainty, and partying with capitalists.

Now based in Auckland, Ha the Unclear initially formed in Dunedin in 2010. They quickly released a string of bedroom recordings under the moniker Brown and completed several life-shortening national tours.
After spending time abroad, songwriter Michael Cathro relocated to Auckland in 2012, while the band continued to tour and record with feet in both cities. Michael is now joined by brother Paul Cathro on bass, drummer Benjamin Sargeant, and Theodore Francis on guitar.

Ha the Unclear are set to release their new album Bacterium, Look at Your Motor Go in August 2014.
