“Control” by Hazel English

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.

 Hazel English is a 25-year-old Oakland-based artist who makes indie pop powered by transcendent melodies, and caked in layers of Californian sunshine and redolent reverb. Clad head-to-toe in a seemingly endless supply of dress-up thrift-store costumes, a glance at any of Hazel’s social networks reveals a vivid portal into her timeless world, where sun-bleached snaps bely a million possible stories. She’s an artist for whom the visuals and music go hand-in-hand.

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.
