Hazza Making Noise - Single Review: Boomers In Disguise

10 Sep 2020 // A review by Corinne Rutherford
Auckland based Cantabrian, disillusioned architect and sausage roll enthusiast Harry Platt who goes under the pseudonym Hazza Making Noise, has just released a new single called Boomers In Disguise. Cross a football chant with a rock opera and inject it with punk-rave then you will have a fair idea about the unique concept which Harry describes as having "an early Arctic Monkeys – Brianstormesque nature to it".


Harry
of Hazza Making Noise has some impressive vocals going on. He pulls off the rock opera vibe nicely with a theatrical sound, vaguely reminded me of a cross between Michael Hutchence and Robbie Williams. The song itself has a catchy melody which has the potential to get stuck in your head. There is a definite punky electro synth sound which is accompanied by an abstract political reference to baby boomers.

This is a highly energetic track which should get you out of your chair and onto the dance floor (one day in the future). Boomers In Disguise takes you by the shoulders and shakes you awake with its fast pace and melodic rock sound.

I have never heard of Altpop Rocktech Plunge before, but I like it. Check it out for a dose of invigoration.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
 

About Hazza Making Noise

Harry Platt is a disillusioned architect and slightly average singer-songwriter/producer based in Auckland, releasing material under the irreverent pseudonym, Hazza Making Noise.

Originally hailing from Christchurch, outputs under the Hazza Making Noise name flirt around various guises of alternative rock. With an ever evolving catalogue of singles which display complete inability to maintain a consistent musical typology or aesthetic, his recent lyrical themes dabble in somewhat cliche "meaning of life" rhetoric as well as making sense of the consequences that differing technological innovations have on us both sociologically and as individuals. While currently pondering a conceptual EP project for 2019, he is also a sausage roll enthusiast.
