Hallan: Unwomanly Face Of War

Portsmouth newcomers Hallan reveal Unwomanly Face Of War, the lead single from their upcoming second EP, The Noise Of A Firing Gun, which will be released on March 31st, 2023 via Nice Swan Records.

With their new material, the group continues to maintain their post punk grip while experimenting with production elements, turning their attention to the synthesized sounds of the eighties.

Conor Clements, the band's frontman, describes their frantic and startling fresh track in detail: “After an exploration into The Unwomanly Face of War, a book penned by Nobel Prize winning author Svetlana Alexievich, I discovered the real life stories of hundreds of female soldiers who endured horrors and loss during the Second World War. Having fought  for the Soviet Union these women of Russia recount their memories and nightmares in honest detail, sharing their experiences on the front lines and back home

Unwomanly Face Of War is written to remember the realities of a time not long ago and the sacrifices and efforts given by women of the past; it reminds us all to ensure above all else that no daughter or son need know the noise of a firing gun.”

The song is paired to a shadowy clip filmed by Lara Kester.
