Former Killing Heidi vocalist Ella Hooper has this morning revealed her brand new single ‘Häxan’.
The stylish, moody new offering – that sounds like it could have been lifted from the soundtrack to a ’60s ‘Bond’ film – is the second from Ella’s forthcoming debut solo album ‘In Tongues’, which we’ll see in the middle of the year.
“It’s one of the more brooding songs sonically and conceptually off the album,” Ella says of ‘Häxan’. “I’ve been exploring darker territory lyrically for this record, yet ‘Häxan’ still feels defiant and almost uplifting when it kicks in, which is why it’s one of my favourites to play live… I get to be quite surly, it’s like the sonic equivalent of a revenge movie.”
To celebrate the release of the new single (video below), Ella has announced a launch gig at The Workers Club in her hometown of Melbourne on Thursday May 09.
‘In Tongues’ is due for release on Friday June 28.
