Halogens is a four-piece rock band hailing from Asbury Park, NJ. Drawing influences from an eclectic range of artists and genres, Halogens have crafted their own brand of fun, upbeat, and groove-infused pop-punk music. After nearly 5 years of independently recording and releasing their own music, Halogens teamed up with Adam Cichocki of Timber Studios to produce their new, self-titled EP.

On their upcoming EP Hands On 3, ManDancing’s emotional compass magnetizes to vocalist and rhythm guitarist Stephen G Kelly, whose voice wavers between confidence and catharsis. The spectral nature of his delivery is a genre in itself. It waxes elegiac on the alt-country sway as percussion spikes and splinters behind it, before breaking free into a desperate wail. It's this upward curve that carries the arrangements forward, a force that could explode any moment into something unpredictable, warped, yet altogether fitting of such visceral songwriting.

Above all, ManDancing promises a narrative that finds its characters trying to define their own independence. Is it more isolating than liberating? Amidst the haze of young adulthood, the beer cans, and the skipped house shows, ManDancing navigates what it's like to feel positively undone and unlimited at the same time. It's hard and it's an impossible thing, but it's always part of growing older.
