Following on from the SWYSEP EP that was released in 2017, Tottenham quintet HAUS (pronounced ‘house’) have just dropped their new single Shameless via Atlas Records. The new track was produced by Alex Robertshaw of Everything Everything and mixed by Duncan Mills (Peace, The Vaccines). Listen below.
Frontman Ashley Mulimba comments on Shameless:
I wrote this song whilst I was going through a hard time with anxiety. It affected my sleep, my social skills and my relationships. I’ve always felt a strange pressure due to being one of the only black kids that played music, wore skinnies, and skated in my area. For as long as I can remember I’ve always been told to ‘dress/act more black’ or that I listened to the wrong music – in some weird way I liked it, and the rebellion felt empowering, but during this period I felt vulnerable on stage rather than powerful. I’d place myself in other people minds rather than concentrate on my performance
In 2016, HAUS made themselves a name with two critically acclaimed singles (Two Minds, Blinded) as well as appearances at The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party, Dot-to-Dot, and many more. 2016 also saw the band sign to newly-formed Atlas Artist Records. In 2017, Haus released the SWYSEP EP to critical acclaim.
HAUS will embark on a UK headline tour in February. European tour dates will be announced in April, so check back soon! All dates can be found below.
