Today, Los Angeles-based musician Henry Hall is thrilled to announce his debut album, Neato, set for release on October 16, 2020. Produced by Hall and Dylan Bostick of Heavy Duty (Ariel Rechtshaid’s company – producer for Vampire Weekend, Haim, more) in Los Angeles, Neato follows 2019’s Questions, Comments Concerns EP, which Paper Magazine called “an event that you, for once, do not want to miss.”
The album’s first single — a tongue-in-cheek ode to romantic desperation called “Guy” — can be heard now. A video for the song, equally as witty and directed by Brad Hall, is available today as well.

Hall creates one-of-a-kind alt-pop, wry like Ben Folds Five but tender like The Smiths, and as melodic as both of these qualifiers. Featuring his captivating falsetto paired with his amusing, idiosyncratic lyrics, Hall’s music is self-deprecating and soulful. Underneath Hall’s humorous language and moving melodies are alluring guitar and synthesizer textures, which complement his infectious vocal harmonies in a way that evokes Grizzly Bear and Mac DeMarco.
