White Wine

The solo project of musician Joe Haege – previously a member of Tu Fawning, 31Knots and The Dodos – the first album from White Wine, ‘Who Cares What The Laser Says?’, was released last year. Picking up the dark sound of that record, Haege, now joined by Tu Fawning sound engineer Fritz Brückner, pre-empts album number two with the release of a new single, ‘Hurry Home’.

“I like to make music that is played when a cafe is closed, and not when it’s open”, says Haege of the project. “In a world of art and media overload, and the unyielding barrage of advertising, it’s not easy to find any territory not already well-trodden”.

“Many musicians seek to create music of a fantastic escapism, poetically reframing the harsh reality we’re all forced to swallow every day” he goes on. “It’s an unbelievable skill that I wish I had. However, I’m not one of these. For some weird reason, I have this need to hold onto the sheer madness of existence, all of the suffering and celebrating happening at the same time”.
