Oakland-based songstress Hazel English is back to share more of her brand of jangle pop with the video for “Control”, which is being released as a single today via Canvasclub. Shot in the California desert, Hazel leaves her job at a diner to set out on a solo adventure that takes her to a lonely motel room and the jukebox of a neon lit bar – places that unmistakably evoke the type of nostalgia and wanderlust embedded within her music.
Early demos released on her Soundcloud, made her somewhat of an online sensation before she was ever signed. Now armed with her debut 12-inch vinyl EP, Never Going Home, Hazel collates a brilliant snapshot of her DIY creations to date. The EP will be released through House Anxiety / Marathon Artists on October 7th and U.S. single releases “Control” and “Make It Better” are due out October 5th and October 26th respectively via Canvasclub.
