Hannah Ashcroft – Under The Static

Indie-folk artist Hannah Ashcroft unleashed β€˜Under The Static’ back at the end of March. Featuring members of The Travelling Band and BC Camplight, the single was recorded at Pinhole Sound Studio in Manchester. Following a period of experimentation, the single unveils itself as a new pathway for the artist.Β 

Hannah mentioned, β€œThe track is an ode to social anxiety. When everyday situations render you so speechless, your presence simply goes unnoticed or is misconstrued as aloof. I wanted to create tension within the instrumentation while the lyrics reflect a kind of internal dialogue, a sense of helplessness and a struggle to be heard above the noise.”

Showcasing her songwriting skills alongside her expectational guitar ability, β€˜Under The Static’ draws influence from the likes of John Martin and St Vincent. Distinctive, the self produced indie folk wonder is effortless and a force to be reckoned with in Hannah’s discography.

Score: 4/5
