The Haunt: "Why Are You So Cold?"
Video Credits: Chris Hill (Digital Cypher Productions)
“Why Are You So Cold” acts as an open letter to the universe from an outsider’s perspective mourning and questioning the loss of empathy, compassion and humanity that it had once embraced. With social media consuming our livelihood, society has switched gears to instead celebrate instant gratification, notoriety and self-obsession. The song is a plea for humanity to remember how to feel again.
A swirl of Indie-Pop and Post-Punk with a devilish alchemy that summons both Blues and Beats, The Haunt wouldn’t be out of place at Vivienne Westwood’s late seventies London boutique; a new wave countdown on MTV’s “120 Minutes”; baking in the sun at Vans Warped Tour; or a dystopian dance club in space.
Anastasia Grace Haunt(16) and Maxamillion Haunt (20), the teen duo at the core of the quartet, craft shockingly resonant anthems infused with wistful elegance and raw nerve. Barely old enough to drive in most states, Anastasia is possessed with a voice and sensibility beyond her years, an old soul somehow channeling a timeless essence, with powerfully mature lyricism to back it up. Enigmatic, esoteric, and charming, Anastasia doesn’t just “relate” to teenagers in The Haunt’s audience who have been bullied or otherwise shunned. She quite literally is one of them.
