All great stories often start with an open mic; Haley Bonar‘s included. What’s more inspiring than a nineteen year-old on a quest for musical discovery? One who actually finds it. Haley is here years later, with an eagerly awaited album, Last War (via Graveface Records), set for May 20th. With a solid band by her side I expect Last War to be every bit as poetic as her previous albums. And by the sound of “Kill the Fun,” the album’s first release, I can tell it will be the perfect summer soundtrack. The track is opposite to the title, in it’s actually lively and enjoyable. It’s structure is carefree, and contains visually evocative phrases like “laughing at the future that was hanging from the trees.” Despite darker its darker lyrics, the synths and melodic guitar are exceptionally breezy. This uninterrupted ditty is going to be perfect when I can finally lay outside, over a quilt, and staring into the sky of nothingness.
