Portsmouth quartet Hallan release the brand new EP, The Noise of a Firing Gun, via Nice Swan Records (English Teacher, Sports Team, Courting).
Spearheaded by lead singles Unwomanly Face of War and the BBC 6 Music playlisted The Colline Gate, the group's record sees them leave the mundanity of the 21st century behind and turn to real life events of the past, bringing attention to the stories of historical individuals, from the vestals of Ancient Rome to the art scenes of Berlin.
The Noise of a Firing Gun debuts a new direction in songwriting and composition for the band. Experimenting with new production elements, Hallan shift their gaze towards synthesised sounds of the 1980s whilst retaining their post-punk edge.
