Melbourne chamber-pop band HANA MARU are excited to announce the launch of their self-titled debut album.
Hot on the heels of the release of their new single Whole Heart, the single provides an impressive entree to the eclectic new album. Produced and recorded by Robin Waters (The Boat People, Ella Hooper, Machine Translations) and mixed by Ash Blakeney (Institut Polaire), HANA MARU's distinctive sound ranges from gentle folk, to soulful ballads, to outright pop.
HANA MARU is singer and songwriter Jill Farrar, violinist Bec Blakeney (Institut Polaire), cellist Gregory Crocetti (Human Six Billion), bassist Andy Hazel (The Paradise Motel, School of Emotional Engineering) and drummer Esala Liyanage (CHWH, Prudence Rees-Lee).
Praise for Whole Heart:
"stunning...incredibly moving" -- Tone Deaf
