Bio

‘Kind regards,
My inner demons.’

Tess Hannah, the queer queen of moody rock, has learned that giving voice to her inner demons is a shitload more cathartic than letting them fester and rot.

Inspired by artists like Sorry, Angel Olsen and Phoebe Bridgers, Tess wrote and recorded her debut EP in lockdown with good friend Sebastian Chesney (Blyolk/Bastian Hues). In true pandemic style, cross-continent collaboration brought a new level of depth to the record with drummer Matt Johnson (St Vincent, Jeff Buckley)

The EP’s first single, 'Filth' gives a cheeky and playfully nihilistic voice to demons that plague the morning after a big night; it’s about eating the regretti spaghetti and going in for a second serving.

For something that's so simple on paper Tess Hannah makes it sound so huge and consuming. This gets a resounding fuck yeah from me.
