Words: Dylan Murphy
Dublin duo hare Squead are back.
At the crest of the wave of hip hop and RnB emanating from Ireland, Hare Squead are crafting infectious anthems on their own terms.
Their new single ‘Handle Bars’ sees the pair weave effortlessly weave their word play through woozy production, before building to a beautiful crescendo.
Having previously linked with GoldLink on ‘Herside Story’ and more recently released their Superweird EP and performed on COLORs the pair are keeping up their hotstreak with a shapeshifting new cut.
Speaking on the track Tony Konstone says, “We all love in different ways, and sometimes our way of love may not be accepted by the person
you wanna give it to. But if all that toxic shit isn’t there, then you need to accept your differences and nurture each other. You have to change yourself for who you love, and vice versa. Whether it be with friends, siblings, a stranger you’re trying to get to know, or in a romantic way. As hard as it is, accepting that is love too. It makes that shit fun.”
‘Handle Bars’ is the first track to off Hare Squead’s third EP, which will arrive in the spring.
