Schaus unveiled their new tune, “Hasan,” out March 6 on their new EP Grinding via Cool As Hell Records.
Hasan is a tender tale of platonic love with many lyrics abstractly grounded in reality,” says the musician behind the project, Scott Schaus. “I convinced my best friend Hasan to move to Portland six years ago with the promise of cheap rent in a basement dwelling. I look back on this in nostalgia now, folding laundry on his bed, and just plotting out our futures together. The key being that you need to do whatever you can to keep the people that support you around. He’s a day-one Schaus fan, projectionist for our live shows, and my rock even when my vision lacks.
“Written, recorded, and produced by Schaus, this track includes typical elements of a Schaus track : rhythm and lead guitars, synths, programmed drums, and processed vocals. I loved being able to write an immutable song lyrically and wanted to give it the platform to scream on a mountain top.”
