RIYL: bedroom pop
Los Angeles singer-songwriter Hana Vu has been crafting her own brand of dreamy bedroom pop since a digital release of demos and covers in 2014.Â Now on her seventh endeavor, aÂ 6-track EP titled How Many Times Have You Driven By, Hana continues to charm with her left-of-the-dialÂ delivery, both vocally and stylistically.
Lead-off track Crying on the SubwayÂ isÂ sincerely one of the most promising tracks I’ve heard all year, gliding along a seductive bass lick and reverb-soaked Demarco-scented guitar lead.Â Vu’s vocals cut through the layers like a knife through butter,Â pushing those dopamine levels into the red.Â Remarkable tune.Â Second track Cool’s vibe veers sharply intoÂ jazzier, more minimalist territory, but stillÂ dives into nu-soul harmonies thatÂ her vocal style canÂ pull off so well.Â Looking forward to hearing the rest!
