Regulate Stream New Single "Hair"
NYHC act REGULATE have dropped the third single from their upcoming self titled LP due out September 30th on Flatspot Records. "Hair" is a noticeable shift in sound, but not a big surprise for those paying attention to the previous singles from the record.
“‘Hair’ is about becoming comfortable and appreciative of my physical features. Eurocentric characteristics have been seen as the standard of beauty for some time but that’s changing day by day and I hope this song can help that along. I didn’t write this song to put down those features but to uplift people who don’t fit into that standard. Expression through physical characteristics and clothing is important to me and it’s taken time for me to feel confident in that, I’m still working towards it. Hair is a huge piece of that puzzle. Sonically, it’s very unique compared to our other material but it’s been a long time coming for us. It might not sound like something you’d normally expect from us but at the same time I don’t think it’s surprising that we’d write a song like this. It was a challenge in the studio, but we welcomed it and I think we got it right.” Explains vocalist Sebastian Paba.
