SONG PICK: HANYA – Fortunes
We had Brighton-based shoegazers HANYA on our radar early last year already when they released the gorgeous “I’ll Do It Tomorrow.” Since then, a few more brilliant singles followed, but their newest one, “Fortunes,” might be their most compelling to date! “Fortunes” feels effortlessly blissful and beautiful. Discussing their EP lead single, out later in the fall, Heather Sheret (vocals, guitar) says:
“Fortunes” started almost as a joke as we teased the idea of writing a laid-back Y2K banger. Naturally, the more we wrote, the more we loved it. We followed our musical nose until we felt we had tapped into something special. Light, yet heavy, and catchy as hell the track details how getting outside of your comfort zone can often lead to finding the best version of yourself.
