RIYL: bedroom pop

Label: Luminelle

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.  Now on her seventh endeavor, a 6-track EP titled How Many Times Have You Driven By, Hana continues to charm with her left-of-the-dial delivery, both vocally and stylistically.

Lead-off track Crying on the Subway is 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.  Vu’s vocals cut through the layers like a knife through butter, pushing those dopamine levels into the red.  Remarkable tune.  Second track Cool’s vibe veers sharply into jazzier, more minimalist territory, but still dives into nu-soul harmonies that her vocal style can pull off so well.  Looking forward to hearing the rest!
