Virginia-based pop/rock project HAAS have released their debut single, “Behind Those Eyes,” out on all digital platforms NOW. After an extensive about of self-discovery and reflection, lead vocalist Sam Haas brings the project to life through a reflective set of lyrics in “Behind Those Eyes.” With the track’s music video release to follow on February 12th, HAAS approaches the broad pop/rock genre with ease; “Behind Those Eyes” showcases pulsing, rhythmic guitars and powerful lead vocals, reminiscent of 2000’s artists Kelly Clarkson and The Veronicas. The single paves the way for HAAS’ five-track debut EP, due out later this year. About the single, lead vocalist Sam Haas states:
“Behind Those Eyes” is the debut single off HAAS’ upcoming EP. This song is about the dynamics of my relationship with my sister, at a particular point in time, and how an outside influence was changing my perception of her. The song shows the emotional roller coaster that was a year of my life. It shows how an outside influence can have so much influence over someone. This is a song about my efforts to “save” her, but at some point, you have to stop trying and move on. Though this song is immensely personal, I believe that it can be applied to any type of relationship.
