Release Date: Out Now
I have to admit that for the first couple of listens, I assumed Hana was another product off the Scandinavian pop conveyor belt but it turns out she’s a Manchester dwelling Cumbrian – who knew? The 20 year old’s new single ‘Demons & Lies’ does that sultry, heartbroken alt-pop thing that Robyn and Sia pioneered but adds an uplifting soaring element to the music that moves it in to the almost trance Above & Beyond realm. Based an understated piano chord progression you can imagine this track being performed really powerfully in the Radio 1 Live Lounge on sparse instrumentation but it’s just as effective with the electronic embellishments and beats. Definitely one to add to your ‘Fresh Female Alt-Pop’ playlist.
