"Hailer's second album Another Way is as strange as it is familiar... Although the psychedelic rock influences of the bands 2010 debut album Good Canyon
are recognisable, Another Way is a sizeable departure. From the paranoid and dark "Spooky Clams", to the acoustic sentimentality of "Bright Lights", the joyous
and upbeat "Anyway I Can" and the raw power of "Blue Star" and "Postcard". "
- Triple J Unearthed
"This alternative rock album [Another Way] has everything from eerie music and haunting vocals to beautiful acoustic pieces and everything in between. It is a brilliant sophomore effort that lets us know that Hailer is a band to look out for."

Hailer formed back in 2004 during a final year American History class at the University of Sydney. Phil and Scott both studied the same degree and subjects, and thought it would be a good idea to start a band. Angus, who played piano at the time, was convinced to go out and buy as bass guitar and joined Hailer soon after. Hailer played their first gig at the University of Sydney band competition, not 4 weeks after forming, and promptly lost in the first round. Read more...
