premiere: Italy’s HÅN shares her magical new single “1986”
Italian artist HÅN follows up one of the year’s most stunning debut singles with another magical, crystalline dream-pop gem from her forthcoming EP. Like that poignant and slightly more mysterious debut “The Children“, dramatic new single “1986” has an unmistakably cinematic air about it, thanks to its misty, Balearic-tinged vibe and HÅN’s gorgeous, inherently wistful vocals. She tells us about the song’s relatable theme:
“‘1986′ is to me the strangest track on the EP since it’s very personal lyrically but at the same time, it has a production which is really different from everything I’ve ever made. The question which goes through the song (“why are you still there if there’s no one to please you?”) sums up the meaning of it. Even if reasons are opposite, both sides are stuck in the same situation of misery and what they lack is the action to leave. The song it’s not just a personal tale, but also a sort of reflection of what I have seen around me, there are elements that recur in the most of relationships and they’re at the heart of them. 1986 is the year my parents met.”
“1986” is out Friday on Factory Flaws.
