HA THE UNCLEAR; A VIDEO ESSAY (2018): Somewhere inside the outside in

With their new album Invisible Lines due out on Friday (August 3) we thought it timely to flick through the backpages of  Ha the Unclear's videos just to offer a reminder of what was and what they are now.

And the conclusion is that -- then and now -- they are a quirky, melodically powerful, lyrically interesting and utterly fascinating pop-rock band with their own take on . . . well, on whatever takes singer-songwriter Michael Cathro's fancy.

And it's often rather deep and thoughtful. And maybe an odd perspective. 

There is a tour pending (dates below) as well. 

Elsewhere has favourably written about their earlier album Bacterium, Look At Your Motor Go, will be doing the same for their new one and also has an interview with Cathro in our archives

So let's roll the tapes and start with this . . .
