Brighton indie-punks Harker have announced that their debut record No Discordance will see release on February 9th. The band has also released the track "300 Cigarettes" which you can hear below.
No Discordance features ten new tracks coming from the hard work put in over the last several months and a journey to create what is a true mission-statement of an album. Explained singer and guitarist Mark Boniface, "No Discordance is a beast. We’ve thrown everything at it. It’s been the most difficult, but rewarding work we’ve done."
"300 Cigarettes" is an infectious and poppy track, that pays respects to the early pop-punk of bands such as Saves The Day, Bouncing Souls and The Get Up Kids. Despite the fun and infectiously upbeat song, it actually has a serious underlying message.
Mark explained, "300 Cigs' is about how people can use others emotional states to gain trust and self-assurance. At most times we can be caring, understanding and loving. But unfortunately, there are some who ignore the consequences of their actions on people, and it highlights a horrible part of human nature. At our worst, we can be self-centred, reserved and unaware of the problems we create within ourselves and within others. The song acts as a remedy to the damage left behind after we cut poisonous people out of our lives."
