There are some songs that when you listen to them, you instantly think, “this is what happiness sounds like,” or, “this is what sadness sounds like.” But Haula’s “Darkest Hour” is more complex than that. It transcends our basic quadrants of emotions and reminds us of a much deeper feeling: seduction. With rich, soulful vocals and ominous electronic production, she coaxes us in slowly to her mysterious world, one in which it’s difficult to imagine escaping after the song is over.
“Darkest Hour” marks her debut single, but from this alone, there’s sure to be much more from the London singer. Get familiar by streaming her fantastic first offering below.
