The Alabama is the first single from HAV’s forthcoming Album ‘Haar. The song tells the story of a fishing boat disaster out of the port of Buckie (Moray, Scotland) close to where Alex Ross (the song’s composer) and Iona Fyfe both grew up. Narrated by the sweetheart of one of the men lost in the tragedy, The Alabama is a personal meditation on the perilous risks that fisherman took and still take today.
