'Shaking' is the long awaited return of the enigmatic Aussie songstress, who first broke through four years ago with a series of transfixing, jangling dream-pop singles and EPs. With her trademark track, the indie classic "Never Going Home’, having now amassed tens of millions of plays online, Hazel has cemented her place as one of the brightest new stars of indie, and anticipation for her debut album has reached an all time high.
The first single off this debut - details forthcoming - could not be a bigger statement of intent. A Sixties-influenced odyssey of grooves and cloud-bursting hooks that will have indie jukeboxes taking nuclear turns from the off.
Written by Hazel and new recurrent collaborator Blake Stranathan (Lana Del Rey) and produced in Hazel’s adopted home of Los Angeles by super-producer Justin Raisen of-the-moment (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Angel Olsen), 'Shaking' lays the groundwork for Hazel's forthcoming album, which casts a similarly wry, appraising eye over modern life.
