Orange County ska punk outfit Half Past Two have released their new single ‘Shine’, the track follows on from the “Something Blue” EP. Previously featured on the Ska Against Racism compilation, the track has special meaning to the band, and frontwoman Tara Hahn in particular, who says, “Shine is very personal and writing and releasing it has been cathartic. I penned it at the time my family found out that our daughter has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a neuromuscular disease. I didn’t write the words to share, but my bandmates really encouraged me to evolve the song, and we raised some awareness for SMA when we released it acoustic. But we thought it was pretty powerful and wanted it to be an energetic and exciting Half Past Two song like we’re known for.”
