Eruption Artistique – “HI HA”


A stylish and excitable track from Rotterdam-based act Eruption Artistique, “HI HA” infuses modern rock experimentation with ’60s psychedelic influence. “HI HA” marks the first track release from Eruption Artistique’s upcoming EP, ICON, releasing at the end of summer.

“HI HA” wastes no time with its aesthetic charms. Playful organs meander amidst pulsing guitars, escalating into a powerful assembly of vocals. A lower-pitched, gravelly tone plays alongside Sara’s captivating vocal lead, as a frolicking, symphonic element emerges past the one-minute mark. Glam-friendly guitar additions in the closing moments add further vigor, capping off the track with the satisfying “we are all horses,” thematic punch.

Comprising musicians, filmmakers, photographers, and actors, Eruption Artistique is a project with ample aesthetic mystique and production value. They say the following about the track: “It is about being completely free, we are all the same so don’t worry about a thing… we are all horses.”

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2022’ Spotify playlist.
