after turning in a pair of excellent chilled-out singles, hana vu shows her true depth with “shallow.” the third offering from the los angeles songwriter’s upcoming how many times have you driven by is an echoing burst of post-punk, its rigid percussion locking in the delayed guitar signals and vu’s commanding lead vocal.
“shallow” hits its stride as it approaches its chorus, the elements loosening ever so slightly and foreshadowing the track’s anthemic coda. it’s a welcomed addition to vu’s repertoire, a slight detour that again nods to the strength and vision of her songwriting.
how many times have you driven by is out june 29th via luminelle recordings. listen to “shallow” below.
