It's been a while since we've heard from the Gold Coast's Hannah Rosa. Back in 2013/2014, she caused a bit of a stir with a pair of brilliant singles Buried Alive and Delicate Love, but ever since, she's been reasonably quiet; spending much of her time supporting names like Kate Ceberano, playing Queensland Music Festival, and working on her much-awaited new release, which is finally coming out soon. Today, we get the first taste of what this new release – an EP, she mentions – is, launching the project with her first single in four years, Hollow.
Produced with Konstantin Kersting (The Jungle Giants, Mallrat), Tristan Hoogland (Golden Vessel, Woodes) and Jarryd Shuker (Art of Sleeping, Wyatt), Hollow is a dreamy soundscape littered with soft shadings of indie, pop and electronica, with Rosa's vocal spotlighted above a warm and charming instrumental that crackles with soft percussion and light, twinkling melodies. "Hollow was written at a time when I was in a pretty dark place, and I was waiting for someone to come along and pull me out of it," says Rosa on the single. "Of course, not long after writing this song I realised that I needed to be my own superhero. I needed to be the one to rescue myself, as cheesy as that sounds – and in order to do that I needed to learn how to love myself again. As a result, Hollow has ended up becoming a strange little love song I sing to myself, to remind myself to take more risks and dream big." Listen to the song below:
