Locals haven’t heard much from Mobile indie rockers The Hallers, but this is about to change as the band releases its much-anticipated debut EP “High Waters.”
The Hallers recruited Memphis transplant Curry Weber (Sun Records, Ardent Studios) for production and tracking. Weber says the tracking process took the band from guitarist Brendan Manceaux’s house to “a barn in Robertsdale.” Afterward, Jose Del Rio at Pensacola’s River Sound Studio mixed the album, followed by mastering at Dauphin Street Sound by Josh Daigrepont.
The Hallers have given the public a preview of this album through two singles. “Dance With Us” embraces the alt. rock sounds of the early ‘80s with a clean, pure dose of post-punk jangle cut with modern indie rock.
“Small Talk” is an impressive track that demonstrates the band’s versatility and individuality while maintaining a trademark sonic vibe. The instrumental arrangement mingles seductive groove rhythms with fiery rock overtures while maintaining wave after wave of exciting, syncopated lyrical delivery.
