LISTEN: Hazel Gaze Debuts New Single "WHO'S SORRY NOW"

Hazel Gaze hails from NYC. Their 2017 debut was the brainchild of guitarist / keyboardist Russ Soper and lead vocalist Hanz, creating music purely for the love of it.  Blending 90s rock influences ranging from The Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz and Soundgarden to 70s icons such as Led Zeppelin and Humble Pie, the material was recorded in Russ’ Brooklyn basement studio. After highly-successful NYC shows, the band took a COVID-inducted hiatus, during which Russ crafted the material that would become Hazel Gaze II. Joined by Konrad Payne (bass), David Cornejo (drums), Abby Ahmad and Rebecca Rubin (backing vocals), the band is eagerly anticipating bringing their music to NYC-area stages.

Hazel Gaze has released their latest single, “Who’s Sorry Now," a dynamic classic rock tune. With a fierce blend of electric guitars, raw vocals, and a lyrical narrative that hits close to home, this track will take listeners on a journey back to the golden age of rock. The single, accompanied by a new music video, is available now.

Lyrically, “Who’s Sorry Now” represents the common experience where a person feels undervalued and decides to move on, only for their former partner to realize the depth of their mistake when it's too late. 

"Sonically, I wanted the song to be reminiscent of the 70s, which was such an incredible era for music across so many genres." - Russ Soper, Hazel Gaze

With its upbeat tempo and powerful instrumentation, the track channels the spirit of classic rock while delivering a fresh, modern twist. "Having lots of big harmonies was important, combined with vintage keyboards that were also so prevalent at the time.  I’ve always loved the vibe of an overdriven Wurli - it’s the epitome of the 70s sound. The music is based around that, along with a Clav and B3 for added measure! And Hanz absolutely nails that raspy rock ‘n roll vibe perfectly, like so many of the iconic vocalists of that time.", Russ explains.

The new single was written, produced, and engineered by Russ at his Brooklyn studio, with drum recording by Daniel Alba of Studo G, mixing by Daniel Alba of Megafonic and mastering by Oscar Zambrano of Zampol Productions. The track features lead vocals by Hanz, guitars, keys, and percussion by Russ, bass by Konrad Payne, drums by David Cornejo, and backing vocals by Abby Ahmad and Rebecca Rubin. Production consulting by Daniel Alba. Music video by Patty Sway.

"Who's Sorry Now" follows the release of “Dirty Little Secrets,” released last month. To stay updated on Hazel Gaze's latest releases, follow them on social media and visit their official website.
