Even though it’s been a minute since we heard new music from Australian born and Oakland transplant Hazel English, it appears she’s back. With her new single and video for “Shaking,” her return signals plenty of change including a sound that’s like sixties pop mixed with shoegaze luster.
The song is definitely a forward move. The dual vocals blend with sixties pop tones that craft a sound that’s alluring in how it falls into your ears. The progressions feel emotionally charged but not sappy. English tempts you with her powerful gaze while holding you for each catchy note. The video has a similar idea, English tempting multiple men while one sadly looks on. It’s comical but the music is the focal point here. And when the music is this strong, it should be.
The stand alone single can be streamed on all platforms or purchased digitally from all online music stores. The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The digital single is also available for purchase directly from Polyvinyl Records. There are no live appearances set for Hazel English, though that may change soon.
