Hardland released its newest music video for the song “Haunted”

“In Control” is the title of the second album by the Dutch rockers Hardland. Even more than with the self-titled debut of 2017, the band has managed to create a completely different melodic alternative rock sound from very different influences. 


This ranges from Heavy Rock, AOR over 80’sWave to accessible (Power)Pop, with a special love for music from the 1970’s and 1980’s.


The very well done cover “Are Friends Electric”, which was a big hit for the British synthesizer formation Tubeway Army in 1979, further underlines this. “In Control” otherwise only contains own compositions: hard rock songs interspersed with a single ballad.
