Ha Det Bra Short Info

In a pile of bands who want to leave their mark, who want to be remembered or even famous, most of them fall into oblivion, because they realize that there is no money in music, so they turn to some other things and regular lives. Nevertheless, there are a few among them whose love for music isn't just a youthful whim, but a force spinning the wheels that constitute life. One of those bands is Ha Det Bra. Maybe they are not so poetic, but what they offered to the audience in the 90's should not be unrecorded in the new Millennium.

Ha Det Bra is a rock-noise band from Zagreb that stirred the interest of the audience at the beginning of their career, and with their strong sound, they've built their name in the underground scene. The name of the band has Scandinavian roots and its meaning goodbye and/or farewell brings to mind different associations. The band was founded in 1991, and even though the following years were turbulent, not only for the band, but also for the whole country, the nineties have been quite productive and active for them. This was the time when the band ruled the roost. They quenched every thirsty ear that craved some uncontrollable and heavy sound with concerts, and in order to have some of those recorded, they made a few recordings that are very rare today. In 1998, some life circumstances made Ha Det Bra step into a period of hibernation, but they re-activated again in 14 years. Their reunion in 2012 gave birth to an idea of recording the songs that have previously been recorded on cassettes and compilations and so the decision to compile that material into an album was imminent.

The album is released under the title of Societea for Two. It has 14 songs, 11 of which were previously released, while the other three are new ones, never released before. The album was created and played by now permanent line-up, which includes Pijere (guitar, vocal, accordion, electric piano), 6x6 (bass guitar, back vocals), Razorblade Jr. (vocals), Zet (drums) and DadvidS (guitar). The album was recorded in 2013 in Kramasonik studio in association with Hrvoje Nikšić and Mihael Bele, while mixing and mastering was made in Deus Ex Machina studio, owned by the already mentioned Bele, who, in cooperation with the band spent most of 2014 working on the album. Even though the band operates on relation Zagreb – Amsterdam and was dormant for almost a decade, they fully dedicated themselves to every detail of the album, so they chose Tomislav Torjanac for the visual identity of the cover. Torjanac is an awarded Croatian illustrator and painter, known for his work on picture books and books, where Ha Det Bra saw his work and thought of him as a potential associate for their cover. In the end, he turned out to be the ideal choice for all the artwork and with his recognisable expression, he transfused their music into the eye-catching visual. The name of the album Societea for Two shows dedication to details and gives away deeper message hiding behind the wordplay. The album will be released by Geenger Records and PDV Records with their joining forces, and it will be available on vinyl, CD and in digital form.

Societea for Two is an album that carries its own weight. It is the album that brings back a little piece of history of an era and a band, into the age full of new, and often churned out bands. Everyone who loves intrigue and somewhat mysterious expression and a more massive, wilder and multi-layered music, doesn't need to look further because the album they are looking for is right in front of them. Societea for Two delves into some mysterious corners and creates an atmosphere in which even the inmost demons will be able to relax.
