A sultry sweet blend of ear-bleeding rock, smooth soul and furious funk, San Jose’s Sweet HayaH is a forceful whirlwind of sound to be reckoned with. Guitarist Devin Moreno balances ska-esque melodies with distorted, squealing riffs while the vocal presence of lead singer Nehal Abuelata dominates through her booming refrains. One song that combines these traits into a groovy swirl is their single “The Truth” which you can listen to below.

Sweet HayaH will be at the Boom Boom Room in SF on May 7.
