The Hague creates music that ebbs and flows with its own singular logic, abandoning easy categories in favor of a wide-open approach that moves in all directions at the same time.
You’re soon drawn in by the clash of industrial noise and delicate melodies; guitars that dance between acoustic finger picking and thick power chords; soaring vocal harmonies that shift from melancholy to jubilant and arrangements full of dynamic shifts of volume and tempo. The music is rock, but the band’s epic sound tips its hat to country, pop, jazz, post rock, punk, early R&B, classical and 90′s underground sounds.
“Our songs are all over the place,” the band says, “We have grungy post-rock, up-tempo dance songs, pop punk and alt. country songs. We’re likely to include anything that comes to mind when we’re playing.”
The Future Thrills, a Salisbury-based band that combines pop punk, grunge, hardcore, and reggae, will open.
