Before Regulate released their self titled record, they have shared “Hair”, the third single off the aforementioned released.
On the song the band play with different rhythms, shying away from their mosh-ready blend of hardcore while still packing a flair for groove. Soulful vocals meet rock-forward guitars encompassing lyrics about self-acceptance.
Speaking on the track coming together, vocalist Sebastian Paba explained:
“‘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.”
