In a couple of weeks, Hazel English will release her awaited debut album Wake Up! While we’ve been on our heels waiting, she’s released a new single that offers a further glimpse into what the full length will be. On her new single “Five and Dime,” she takes us further into the void while reeling us back with her intriguing voice.
The woozy track has plenty of sixties tones, perfect for highlighting the Australian born singer’s voice. With doo wop underpinnings and garage vibe, English sounds like a perfected lounge singer on a much higher plane. The song is a bop, but not in the traditional phrasing of the word. Where English draws you closer is on the bridge,coming in like she’s singing from a distance, adding a nice element to the single.
The song is available to stream above or on all streaming sites. Wake Up! can be preordered directly from Polyvinyl Records ahead of its April 24 release. Hazel English is scheduled to begin touring on May 16 at Imperial GNP Festival in Mexico City, Mexico until June 22 at The Echo in Los Angeles, CA. Her complete tour schedule is available here. Due to COVID-19 these dates are subject to change.
