The first two songs we heard from Oakland-via-Australia songwriter Hazel English were modest, shimmery indie-pop gems that felt tailor-made for breezy days spent at the beach, daydreaming your way through the dog days of summer. But it's all about perspective, because now that summer's faded and gone, English's wistful, sepia-toned new single "Fix" — the achingly gorgeous opening track from the record, about "the ultimate feeling of freedom that comes with letting go of inhibitions and living totally in the present" — sounds to our ears like a transitional, vaguely autumnal sendoff that will only feel even warmer and more bittersweet as the leaves start to change. Hazel English's stellar debut EP is out this fall.
