Hàn Gắn, a dynamic music duo based in Washington D.C., is quickly making a name for themselves with their unique blend of post-rock, post-punk, hardcore, singer-songwriter, and darkwave elements. Formed in 2017 by Matthew T. Eng and J. Brian Nicewander, this duo creates music that is not only sonically diverse but also deeply introspective, providing poignant critiques of political cultures and reflecting on their own experiences.
Their latest release, “New Terms,” is a visceral anthem that blends punk and indie rock into an entrancing juggernaut.
