Hannah Robinson’s latest track came out on the 8th of September, and it’s a superb listen – with an enchanting sound seeping out of an echoing chamber of noise.
‘Rosie’ is the Newcastle artist’s attempt at manifesting the woman within herself, affirming beauty and power. Those two aspects find themselves aptly presented in the song. As a listener, you have the blissful reverb, a sleek vocal delivery that cruises alongside, and then that power comes forth in tremolo guitar as well as a driving beat.
Hannah’s tranquil vibe is further complimented by a superb solo. Tubular and gifted, it sits nicely within the all-round mix and doesn’t overstep the mark – thus reflecting a consummate thoughtful process of creation from Robinson and her bandmates.
Building further on the inspiration for this track, Hannah said:
"'Rosie' is all about female empowerment. It’s about recognising your beauty and seeing yourself through the eyes of those who appreciate you the most. So many of us look in the mirror and don’t recognise ourselves when in reality we are beautiful the way we are! I wrote this song as a love letter to myself when I lacked confidence, affirming the thoughts “I am freedom, I am so appealing, I help people’s healing, when they need it” and the more I told myself it, the more I believed it. I wanted this song to embrace the feeling of being my authentic self!"
Establishing her sound back in 2020, Hannah has hypnotised with her aura of hauntingly melancholic indie rock and relatable lyrics. Emerging her sound through the dreaminess of bands such as Beach House, Warpaint, Mazzy Star and more, she is keen to continue to surprise us with her ability to dive into her memories and share with us those vulnerable moments that embody her music.
Supporting acts such as swim school, Moon Panda and Orchards as well as playing local festivals Stockton Calling, Coast Fest amongst the likes of Futureheads and Liam Fender, Generator Live Fringe (curated by Maximo Park's Paul Smith) and Northern Kin, she sold out her debut headliner in just 6 days, as well as having her own evening at Zerox for Independent Venue Week.
‘Rosie’ is a brilliant track and will likely have all ears tuned ahead for her debut EP which is set to land in 2024.
