And We Should Die Of That Roar is a one-man musical soirée, instigated and run since 2014 by guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Hardy Hum.
Hardy’s music is recognised as “incredibly innovative”, “truly unique and powerful” with an immediately distinguishable sound that is “drenched in whiskey, aged with smoke and fired with emotion and power”. This, however, is but a dark echo of a more distant past. Born into a family of musicians in former Yugoslavia in late 70’s, Hardy’s love for music developed early and has ever since remained a natural part of his life. After fleeing the horrors of war in Balkans at the age of 15, decontextualized with contested sense of identity and weighing sense of loss, rootlessness, and alienation as he was trying to adapt to his new life as a refugee and his new home (Sweden), he sought comfort in music. Hardy’s story is as real as the searing heartache he’d learned to live with. Consequently, this is reflected in his music – a music that provides no escape. It is not crowned with a romantic happy-ending. Rather, armed with dark bile and deeply reflexive gaze it explores the badlands of the dark while embracing those more obscure dimensions of being human. This has become a hallmark of Hardy’s music, something he has called “a homemade exposure therapy club for the hurten ones”. For more info visit www.andweshoulddieofthatroar.com
