Washington-based duo Hàn Gắn (meaning “Heal” in Vietnamese) has just released their latest single “New Terms,” an explosive fusion of contemporary punk and indie rock. The track features impressive guitar solos, striking percussion, and a lasting refrain that’s sure to get stuck in your head.
At its core, “New Terms” is a powerful cry against the people and systems that cause destruction. According to Hàn Gắn, the song is “a boisterous call out of the people, systems, and attitudes that no longer serve us.” With its shamelessly loud and energetic sound, “New Terms” is a rallying cry for change and a reminder of the power of music to inspire action.
The release includes two other tracks, “Patterns in Vivo” and “Before The Bomb,” both of which showcase Hàn Gắn’s unique blend of post-rock, post-punk, hardcore, and singer-songwriter elements, with a touch of darkwave thrown in for good measure. The result is a vibrant and upbeat sound that’s as catchy as it is politically charged.
Formed in 2017 by Matthew T. Eng and J. Brian Nicewander, Hàn Gắn is a band that’s not afraid to mix their political opinions with personal experiences to create music that’s both thought-provoking and entertaining. Their creative flair and art of political singing are on full display in this latest release, making it a must-listen for fans of punk and indie rock alike.
