The Hazzah Finalise Recording Debut Album

The Hazzah just finished recording their debut album with producer Michiel at Wisseloord Studios and their self built studio in an empty scouting building somewhere in the North of Holland. They also got a nice French review from indiemusic france:

‘… son troisième EP qui évoque une rencontre fortuite entre la nonchalance absurde des Black Lips et la décontraction des Growlers. Les deux titres de ce maxi sont des petits bijoux de concision, branleurs mais pas branlants, que la joyeuse bande entonne avec beaucoup de cœur.’ – read the review here.

New tunes coming soon! We can’t wait
