Hablot Brown Releases Debut Album “Hablot Brown”: Streaming
Los Angeles-based neo-soul/R&B trio Hablot Brown, consisting of Linus Hablot (vocals/keyboard), Austin Daniel Brown (guitar) and John Sterling Brown (drums) released their highly-anticipated self-titled debut album on August 5, 2022.
The album is their first project in two yeas since the 2020 EP “Opaque”.
The album comprises 12-track, featuring guest appearances from Leven Kali and Floyd Fuji.
Produced by Austin Daniel Brown. Written by Linus Hablot, Sol Was, Austin Daniel Brown, John Sterling Brown, Taylor Mackall, Floyd Fuji, Tyler Carroll, Andrew Luce, and Trey Nahkoda.
Hablot Brown said of the album in a statement, “We tried to push the narrative of what our sound is and what our sound will be with this album. We feel like we were able to deliver something dynamic song to song but still sound like Hablot Brown.”
- Austin Daniel Brown told Sheeshmedia about the album in an interview, “Sonically, I want people to hear it and be like, “There is still more to uncover.” We can still add on to these inspirations that we all know and love. You can take things and still make it new. There is no glass ceiling when it comes to sonic creativity. You can always change what people are expecting from you. With the technology that we have now, you can record drums, guitar, bass, and vocals just like The Beatles did 50 years ago, but then you can take it into Ableton and just flip it and do otherworldly things. That's definitely something I want listeners to notice. It's similar to what we know, but it is still different, modern, and unique to them.”
Linus Hablot added, “Lyrically, I feel like it is a place of openness and enjoyment. I feel like in the past, the lyrics had the intention of being introspective and creating this mental dialogue. I want it to be a good time, but some of the songs are still quite sad or emotional. I feel like I naturally write emotional stuff. We have seen how it translates live, and we want people to have a good time. We will still have meaningful stuff in the background, but we want people to vibe to it.”
