Yesterday we featured Bristol trio Soeur and their 90s alternative-influenced sound. There have to be one thing within the water as Hannah’s Little Sister have emerged with the same vibe, wildly channelling the likes of Sonic Youth, The Breeders and The Pixies on their debut launch “20”.
It’s a chaotic but business introduction to the Liverpool band. “20” is about hitting a brand new decade after these teenage years and the pressures of expectation, identification and stereotype. There’s a alt-rock, slacker pop edge to the music and the lyrics are delivered with a brattish swagger: ‘I can’t do nothing about it/cease making me panic/promise that I’m not simply lazy’ sings Meg Grooters about her ‘post-teen disaster’.
The accompanying DIY video, directed by Beebo Boobin, exhibits the band at a birthday celebration surrounded by retro occasion goodies and can make you need to bask in cake in addition to high quality music. Treat your self.
“20” is out now.
