Hello. We’re HAVR.

“Modern rock that’s vital, exciting and evocative… this band is flying right now.” – Guy B, Greatmusicstories.com

“Noisy rock music; sometimes political, usually emotive, and pretty much always anthemic.” – Jockrock.org

HAVR – it rhymes with flavour – make big music. It’s music born of love and of loss, of hope and of heartbreak, the sound of big hearts beating inside bruised bodies.

HAVR are Kenny Martin (bass), David Marshall (guitar) and Carrie Marshall (guitar/vocals).

Influenced by post-punk, pristine pop and power trios, Kenny, David and Carrie are having too much fun to stick to a single genre. They’re channelling Bob Mould and Buzzcocks, Frightened Rabbit and Faith No More, Radiohead and REM. Some of their songs are personal and others political; some are abrasive, others anthemic.

Fancy a chat? Come and talk to us on Facebook.

(“Haver” is a Scots word that means “to babble”. We’re aware that in the last year or so some other Scots bands have formed with the same pronunciation and different spellings, most notably Haiver featuring former Frightened Rabbit Billy Kennedy. Kids today don’t know how to Google, don’t listen to BBC Introducing or Amazing Radio, etc etc etc. We’ll probably change our name and moan about it for a while afterwards.)
