Formed in June 2022, Huir is a Spanish Dark Wave /Synth Pop duo from Barcelona made up of Ana Of The Head (Vocals, Synth) and former Paranormales member David Solazo (guitar, drums).
The band follows last November’s first single, “Vital”, with the WL//WH premiere of the official video, directed by Irene Blanquez, for “Triumphal”, the second foretaste from Huir’s debut EP “Triumphal Arch Lovers”, produced, mixed, and mastered by Maurizio Baggio (Boy Harsher, The Soft Moon) at La Distilleria in Bassano del Grappa (Italy), slated for release in the Spring of 2024 via the German label Cold Transmission Music.
“Triumphal” compels a thick doomy undercurrent of chugging bass lines and hypnotic punchy drum beats, punctuated by rattling echoing blows, cast in sad weeping icy bright synth stabs, to meander around beautifully tragic female vocals, whose dreamy yet piercing angst syncs with ticking sways of nervous obsession. Then subtly abrasive and menacing guitar riffs transfix, in and out, around fragile emotional cries, left longing in a harsh droning sensation of lovelorn pain.
The dramatic visuals, shot by Irene Blanquez, star Ana and David as a pair of lost and lonely black-clad wanderers, searching for comfort in an empty nightclub as an unsuspecting danger lurks nearby. Hypnotic red and blue dimensions shift perception over a shadowy maze of locked doorways, building mystery and suspense as a symbolic climax finds the couple tied together under a spotlight, trying desperately to escape from the confusing mind games experienced for fear of being alone.
HUIR‘s debut EP, “Triumphal Arch Lovers”, is going to be released, in digital & physical format, in Spring 2024, via Cold Transmission Music.
