Formed by the songwriting duo of Tom Brogan (Vocals, Guitar) and Duncan McCormick (Guitar, Backing Vocals), a couple of old school pals with over 10 years experience playing in a variety of bands across Glasgow’s music scene, Silver Haar were birthed during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic as a much- needed creative outlet. Rounding out the group are Kev McCormick (Guitar), and Cammy Maxwell (Bass). Channelling their love for 80’s indie guitar bands at their most rousing (think Head On The Door era Cure, Creation Records era House Of Love and The Pixies of Doolittle) mixed with more contemporaneous stuff like We Are Scientists, Biffy Clyro & Radiohead, these influences shine through with ringing arpeggios, impeccable melodies/ harmonies and the all-important anthemic choruses that find triumph in the melancholic ennui entrenched in the Scottish character. Much like fellow Scots The Jesus & Mary Chain before them, I suspect Silver Haar are also Happy When It Rains.
