PREMIERE: HATY HATY – “RUN – STOP – NON – STOP – BELLY – FLOP”

We premiere a new cut from one of Europe’s most eagerly awaited duos.

What is it with crazy, all caps band names at the moment? Not that it really matters when the music is this good. HATY HATY is a collaboration between two artists coming out of the Netherlands: Blaudzun and David Douglas. The name Blaudzun might not mean too much to us here (yet), but over in Europe he’s an established indie artist with several chart successes, awards, a golden album and many appearances at festivals like Hurricane/Southside, SXSW, Pinkpop, Lowlands, Bråvalla and various other Euro-fests you may or may not have heard of (depending on how obnoxiously informed you are). Douglas, meanwhile, is an electronic musician and producer whose debut LP, Moon Observations, received a whole lot of press attention back in 2014.

Now, the two friends are working together under the moniker HATY HATY – derived from the Indonesian word ‘hati’, meaning heart – with an album, High As the Sun, set for an early March release. We’ve already seen a stellar single of the same name from the record, and now we’re proud to premiere a new track from the duo, the unusually titled ‘Run – Stop – Non – Stop – Belly – Flop’. It’s a slice of slightly spacey electro-pop which combines Blaudzun’s Radiohead-style vocalwork with Douglas’ digital wizardry; well worth a listen, we must say. Oh, and the album is available to preorder now, so get on it.
