Havana is an alternative powerhouse formed of Singer and Producer, Hiram Hernandez (Ex The New Low/Glass Cloud) guitarist, Chad Crawford (Scary Kids Scaring Kinds) and drummer, Jacob Miles (Alterra). “All we want to do is make music. We don’t want to try and impress anybody. We don’t want to be anything we’re not. We’ve toured. We’ve seen things people would wish they could see in this lifetime and yet, none of it adds up to what it feels like to play this music. We want to create an experience that makes us feel the way we felt like when we were discovering our favorite bands as kids.” The band will do just that. From anthemic choruses to haunting verses, Havana is nothing short of an existential time capsule with a sound foreign yet familiar. The band is set to release a video In late April for their new single Blame. You can catch them at The Rebel lounge April 28th and on Facebook and Instagram!
