Premiere – Stream Hannah Lou Clark’s Snarly-But-Sweet Debut EP, ‘Silent Type’

“Wait until we find our feet,” promises Hannah Lou Clark on ‘Kids In Heat’, slurring over a lonely guitar grind that teeters between sweetness and something more sinister. It certainly sounds like she’s found hers on new EP ‘Silent Type’, spinning a Bukowskian tale of numb suburban ennui (“you can see the doldrums in our faces,” she growls on its mesmerising title track) around gently crunching chords and breathy, lilting vocals, like a punch-drunk Polly Harvey. The eagle-eyed among you might remember Clark from Hampshire art-rockers FOE. From its opening drum machine thud and flicker of guitar to its lullaby-like closer ‘My Game’, ‘Silent Type’ is more assured and sublime. Check it out below.
