Cinematic Danish singer Hannah Schneider (of AyOwA fame) is back with a heartfelt tone to address this season, and how summer’s light, intensity and high expectations can sometimes make you feel down and existentially heartbroken.

“The early summer in Scandinavia is such a giant peak of the year. Darkness takes hold of us during the winter with its debris, cold and Icelandic sweaters, and it seems like it is part of our Nordic mentality to give in to the whims of the seasons, always waiting for the light and brighter days.”

The single, “It’s The Season”, is a melancholic pop song, that oozes of sedated summer vibes. With sincere vocals, acoustic piano and minimalistic electronics, the song creeps into your heart, and stays with you long after it’s over. Check it out here:

Further explaining the inspiration behind the new single, the acclaimed Danish singer says:

“But what does it mean to us as humans that winter is constantly waiting just around the corner, and even the brightest Midsommer night passes so quickly? Sometimes we end up waiting for a summer that just never comes- and when it’s finally there, the expectations are so high, that we can only be disappointed.”

Hannah continues:

“To me, Midsommer is a melancholic time where every feeling is exaggerated, and the beauty of it all is so breathtaking that it feels like you have to throw all your guards down and just surrender. That makes good material for songwriting!”

“It’s The Season” is the third single to be taken from Hannah’s upcoming new album, Ocean Letters, which will see release on September 30th.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
