HALEY - Pleasureland (Memphis Industries) 2018
Some artists stand out for their audaciousness and attitude, and HALEY is definitely one of them. You have may known her as Haley Bonar, but last year she changed her legal name to Haley McCallum and now she releases her music as HALEY. To coincide with her new life’s chapter, HALEY’s new album is another big step into something greater. Pleasureland is her most defiant and bold effort to date; it’s an entirely instrumental record and completely different from anything she has ever released. It may come as a shock at first not having HALEY’s voice in any of the songs, but overall it is a stunning and bold sonic experience with haunting melodies and important messages behind them.
