Taken off their recent gritty 9-track album called ‘Raw Hackles‘, Halfgrass are electrically charged to sizzle, on their lead single about baking in the heat of the world on ‘Stall‘.
Eastvale, California-based five-piece indie-rock/gnarcore act Halfgrass, makes that atmospherically advanced music that simmers into your mind and makes you think deeply about life, to find out more about what you are doing with yourself. They are a powerfully tuned band with lots of loudly impressive riffs and deep lyrics that swirl into your consciousness, giving your heart a wake-up call.
His vocals tell you a deep story of frustration with current events as the band swarm the speakers and gives him a much-needed lift. They magnetically transform the track beyond belief and we are taken into the desert, where we find a singer who needs help with this cooked up world of confusion.
‘Stall‘ from South Californian band Halfgrass is the story of looking for that inner desire again after a crazy few months. You feel sluggish and burnt out, your body feels broken and you need a break away from the burning heat. Tomorrow will be a better day and perhaps your soul will cool down, so you can re energize to soar in the sky again.
