FRESH: ‘Risk It All’ – Haunter

Haunter want to “Risk It All”

US rock-pop band Haunter release their new single, “Risk It All”, today, a soaring rock anthem with an awesome feel-good vibe and gorgeous vocals from lead singer Lucy LeNoir. “Risk It All” is the third track from the band since their debut, “Love You Better”, at the beginning of 2020. The LA based group consits of Lucy – vocals, Enoma – guitar/synth, Mark – bass and Mike – guitar/synth/vocals who cite their influences from CHVRCHES, Taylor Swift and The Chainsmokers to name a few.

“Risk It All” is produced, co-written, mixed and mastered with two time Grammy nominated producer Tyler Smyth and was written for “the dreamer inside all of us” LeNoir states. “The entire band was on the roof of an LA high-rise apartment complex, daydreaming of where we would be in the next five years, talking about our futures like we knew what we were getting ourselves into. We knew there was no way we could get anywhere without risking everything we have to make this band work. Right then and there we decided we would do whatever we had to, to get to where we wanted to be. No doubts, no fears, just passion, and risk! Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith to land where you want to be. This is that song”.

Haunter’s edict is ‘A bunch of emo kids (and one metalhead) decided to write some pop songs and have some fun’, as demonstrated with their down-tempo number, “Miss Me”, Haunter strive to deliver power rock-pop anthems with strong lead vocals and a carried-away soundtrack with a very small splash of retrowave thrown in for good measure (and we do love that here at talkaboutpopmusic.com!) Keep your eye on Haunter in the future, this is a band that are rising and climbing ever higher with each new release and “Risk It All” is their most powerful and striking offering yet. Will you ‘risk it all’…?

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
