Hazel English is baAAAaack and *finally* sharing her first new music since 2017. The Australian born, US-based musician made her transfixing intro two years ago with a double whammy of EP releases in the form of Just Give In/Never Going Home. It was the sound of a young musician with an innate ear for melody – it was deliriously colourful old-school dream-pop that slinked and fizzed, hook-fronted and awash with tones and textures.

"Shaking," a sixties-imbued leftfield-pop slink, debuts today with a video directed by Erin S. Murray. Hazel's new single side steps her original shoegazey-fuzz and hits on something more direct. If the early EPs were painted with pastels, Shaking launches Hazel English’s return in glorious technicolor. It was written alongside recurrent collaborator Blake Stranathan (Lana Del Rey) and produced by LA’s Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Charli XCX). Of the track Hazel shared –

“There is a lot more I am trying to explore under the surface that I hope people notice. I feel like I’m on this continual journey of figuring out what I truly believe and separating it from the false and toxic ideas I was taught about myself and the world throughout my life. I hope I can inspire others to also search for their inners truth and find their own inner strength in the process.”
