Propelled by a fierce devotion to create vibrant sonic experiences that reflect a special appreciation for UK-influenced indie/ pop/ RnB and neo-soul, Melbourne singer-songwriter Hannah Wilson has released her electrifying new single Shame.
Hannah Wilson’s entrance into the Naarm music scene began in 2020 with debut single Sweet & Sour followed by I Wanna, with both releases receiving nationwide support and the latter, a collaborative single between Hannah and fellow Melbourne artist JAYDEAN, premiering on Triple J.
Since then, the burgeoning artist has continued to garner influences and evolve her sound, working with UK rapper Tee Peters on new track Shame to find an intoxicating balance between pulsing grime intensity and eloquent neo-soul flavours.
Ensnared by the peal of ambient synth melodies and an invigorating house beat, the song’s floating harmonies immediately fall into place as Hannah’s lilting vocals advance sweetly through the verse. Brought to life through clean, clever production, instrumental layers transform home speakers into live musicians, delivering a raw edge to hip-hop inflected production, reminiscent of UK artist Cleo Sol.
As the track’s electronic elements glow with the steamy sheen of an underground dancefloor, Hannah Wilson presents her luring lyrical hook with a soulful grace, the song finding a compelling climax in the overlap between exhilarating house-inspired elements and passionate neo-soul deliveries.
Drawing her lyrical inspirations from personal experiences, Hannah Wilson wrote Shame about being able to let go of disappointment when things don’t go to plan, as she explains:
“When things don’t necessarily turn out the way you want them to, it can be such a shame. Whether it’s relationships, friendships or life situations, I always try not to attach myself too strongly to desired outcomes, and just go with what comes. I have learned that the art of detachment can be a very powerful skill to have.”
Hannah Wilson’s previous releases have seen support from NME, Triple J, Triple J Unearthed, Purple Sneakers, GC Live, The Local Frequency, Milky Mag and more, with the artist selected as a participant in the Nando’s Music Exchange in 2019, where she worked closely with Kwame as well as various artists from around the world.
