Are you ready for some futuristic and dystopian sound? Here's Han Gan from Alexandria, Virginia. Their newest release "The Time Past" is a short but intense display of modern Post Punk and Post Hardcore. Crunchy riffs stride across galopping drums in mid-tempo while synthies, keys and xylophones create an atmospheric surrounding. Imagine Hüsker Dü teaming up with Black Flag and Human Tetris.
"The Time Past" is a political release in several ways. The lyrics openly attack patriarchs, racists, sexists, and neo-liberals. Also, all the sales will be donated to the Community Justice Exchange to help them support the BLM movement and a COVID-19 emergency fund. So you can listen to good music and do something good.
Han Gan's "The Time Past" is a stunning mid-tempo Post Hardcore/Punk release. This might perfectly fit a nice drink at a skate park under the setting sun.
