(Big Hassle) The Hails pull back the curtain on another layer of their upcoming debut album with the release of "Fiona." An occult, otherworldly groove, the track evocatively tells the tale of being caught in the orbit of a larger-than-life femme fatale, who seems to single handedly hold life together. Half functioning as a thank you letter and half asking far too much of someone else, the song grasps firmly onto the life raft of Fiona Apple's discography. With production by Pat Howard of Magic City Hippies, the dominance of the Florida indie scene is on full display with "Fiona".
The Hails front man Robbie Kingsley explained, "'Fiona' finds us in one of our moodiest grooves. It has a cadence that I don't think a lot of our other songs have. The layers in the chorus are thick but there's a hint of intricacy that can be felt through each lyric, which I love."
He continues, "It was important to me to cast a net of mysticism on top of the song because I was carefully avoiding being trite with the lyrics. The song comes from a time where I just couldn't seem to make sense of life, so using Fiona Apple's music as a grounding mechanism felt comfortable. Plus, the heroic aura from the energy of her music felt like something I should sing about."
Over the next few months, The Hails will be doing a Fun Run of shows, a mix of headline dates and support for The Happy Fits, The Beaches and the moss. Winding their way through the South, Midwest and Northeast, The Hails will be bringing new music and tour-worn favorites to fans.
