HAAS HOLIDAY - "Scream"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

A Thunderous Call to the Wild Side

In the vast universe of modern rock, where electric guitars battle with thunderous drums for the cosmic spotlight, HAAS HOLIDAY emerges as a nuclear-powered spaceship - powered by raw, intense, unfiltered energy. Their latest single, "Scream," is not just a song; it's a rollercoaster ride through the annals of rock history, with a modern twist that grips you from the first note. Making a significant mark, the track debuted at number 127 on the Digital Radio Tracker Charts for Independent Radio Airplay, signaling a promising start for what is undeniably a piece of art crafted with sheer passion and intensity.


HAAS HOLIDAY's "Scream" kicks off with an intense guitar riff that instantly sets the tone - it's ominous, powerful, and hints at the chaos about to unfold. This is not just music; it's a forewarning of the storm brewing ahead. The entrance of an epic drum kit sends ripples through your core, as the song traverses a path of raw energy and greatness. The vocals, reminiscent of Danny Elfman's unique tone with Oingo Boingo, carry an unmistakable coolness veiled in darkness. This is a voice that doesn't just sing; it narrates a saga.


The instrumental arrangement is a masterclass in dynamic contrast. The guitar riff and drum toms bounce off each other in a mesmerizing dance, while the vocals soar above, creating a captivating aural experience. The chorus introduces a "riding" section, punctuated by the visceral vocal delivery, "You make me wanna scream!" catapulting the listener back into the fray with renewed vigor.


As we approach the bridge, HAAS HOLIDAY shifts gears into a Rage Against the Machine-inspired riff, propelling the guitar into stratospheric heights. This escalation ensures that the final chorus hits with an intensity that's both overwhelming and exhilarating. The band has crafted a character within this song that is undeniably intense, cool, and impossible to ignore.

Describing their sound as "new age rock & roll," the band aims to contain and release the inner demons we all grapple with. Influenced by the likes of Rival Sons, Led Zeppelin, and Rage Against the Machine, HAAS HOLIDAY's music is a testament to the power of channeling emotion into art, turning anger and heartbreak into anthems of resilience.


"Scream" is more than just a song; it's a declaration of intent from HAAS HOLIDAY. In a world that often seeks to silence the dissonant, this track is a scream in the face of conformity, a call to embrace the raw, untamed parts of ourselves. With their unique blend of influences and undeniable charisma, HAAS HOLIDAY is not just sticking it to THE MAN; they're redefining what modern rock & roll can be. And if "Scream" is any indication, we're all in for a wild ride.
