New ep with minimal soundscapes, rock and noise

H A S T conjures up lush minimal soundscapes intertwined with noise elements and hard as nails riff rock, reminiscent of some kind of weird mixture between a Mondriaan and Pollock painting. This band founded by alto saxophone player Rob Banken is presenting its new ep Ubi sunt (Solidude Records / N.E.W.S. Distribution).

Ubi sunt

'Ubi Sunt' or 'Where are... {they}?' is part of the Latin question 'Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt?' or 'Where are those who were before us?'. 

This kind of questioning evolved into a stylistic figure in medieval poetry, which was mainly used in the then popular elegies, which is a reference to Elegy, the debut album of H A S T.  Originally an expression of a sense of nostalgia, it became more and more a reflection on transience and mortality. Therefore it should be no surprise that the music on Ubi Sunt was written and recorded in the middle of a the coronacrisis.
