SONG PICK: HOAR – Venice of the North
Careful, very slowly intensifying, “Venice of the North” grabs you quietly and then doesn’t let go! The debut single by Belgium four-piece HOAR pulls all minor key register and resonates because of its dark melancholy and the rays of optimism that are breaking through and like with many a great songs recently, the ending is what makes us want to start the track from the beginning again.
The band provides the following insight on their debut single: “Venice of the North is a murder ballad about an unreconcilable love and the desperation that comes with it. We approached it in an eclectic way, trying to create something dark, mysterious and build up slowly as the narrator lures his love into death, before taking his own life.”
