01.26.2014 — “Rock n Roll Dreams” by Great Hare

Great Hare

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Rock n Roll Dreams” by Great Hare (2014, from the “Rock n Roll Dreams” single).

Great Hare is an indie rock quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden. I don’t know much about these guys, but their bio suggests that the members of the band have been in other indie rock bands going back to the 1990s and the heyday of MTV’s “120 Minutes”. Apparently, they’ve all been out of the biz for a while, but they decided to form Great Hare a few years ago.

It looks like they self-released an album last spring and have self-released a handful of singles since then. This is the most recent release, which landed in my mail bag a couple of weeks ago.

I don’t know which bands the guys used to be in, but they say that Great Hare is influenced by the likes of The Cure and Lou Reed. In this song, I hear a bunch of Broken Social Scene. I mean A BUNCH. In fact, I’m not even sure that this isn’t some of the guys from BSS in disguise.

This song is available as a free download from soundcloud, and also at the rate of “name your own price” from bandcamp.

I’ve heard a couple of songs from this band, and although they’re unsigned at the moment, I don’t expect that to be the case for very long.
