Volume 1 (7 track mini-LP)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Dave Haack Band was born in 2010 in Sydney’s Inner-West.

The Band began as a collaboration between long-time friends: Dave Haack (guitar, vocals, songwriting), Dane Connor (drums), Stu Horsfield (bass), and the infamously enigmatic Enzo Lunch (guitar).

The debut mini-LP “Volume 1” consists of 7 highly-charged tracks, at the core of which is a desire to add a spontaneous musical energy to Dave’s pre-written songs. The band has a unique tendency to continuously evolve the songs live and in the studio – or maybe it’s just short attention spans all round. Either way, the results are exciting and unpredictable. Such is the case with “Volume 1”, as more tightly structured rock n roll tracks such as opener “Through” and the propulsive, driving “Forget You”, are contrasted with more progressive, improvised moments in “Lagoon” and “She”. It is an unspoken musical understanding due to the many, many hours the band’s various members have played together at different times throughout the years, that allows for these songs to maintain a tightness and certainty . It’s like they have ESPN or something.

Despite all of this, there is a consistency to the sound. Enzo’s guitar remains clean and provides the atmospherics and ethereal qualities. Dave and Dane both have an affinity for rocking your pants off in one way or another, with a love for the Smashing Pumpkins et al. Stu provides the grounding presence of a solid, yet melodic bass approach. Recent gigs include a number of shows at the Annandale and Oxford Art Factory.

Stu is currently being replaced by Reece Connor on bass, who is a welcome addition to the sonic mixing pot of DHB. With a background of performing in bands ranging from grindcore to acoustic, it is another unique personality and approach which helps to shape the sound of the band.

All in all it’s a promising start. It’s even better live, for sure.
