Out now on the Communion Singles Club, is the debut single from Fairhazel, aka London-based musical nomad Hugh McDonald, titled 7×7. Growing up in Cape Town, London and Paris, and spending time in the USA attending Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music, might have formed him as a person, but its London where his project has taken shape.
New single 7×7 draws inspiration from the Bardo Thodol, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which details a Buddhist’s journey from death to reincarnation. It dances and flickers, gradually building as the track gnetly unfurls, with vocal harmonies and synths joining the patter of the plucked guitar is the emotion begins to overflow.
