Indie-folk artist Hannah Ashcroft unleashed ‘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.
Hannah mentioned, “The 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, ‘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.
