Blending her signature sound with lo-fi, r&b tinged beats, Italian singer/songwriter HÅN teamed up with rising West London songwriter/producer KiLLOWEN to grant us a fresh and shiny tune, which will sprinkle a generous amount of good vibes on your day.
“Bicycle” is a warm expression of the thoughts and feelings the young artist first had when moving to London. Getting to know the city and herself at the same time.
The groovy instrumentation and Her sweet vocals will get you unprepared for the beat switch at 2:12 when the processing of all these experiences comes to place. Speaking about the writing process, she explains:
This was the first song I wrote when I moved to London last year. I met Owen (who features on the song) in October and we got along right away. At the time I was struggling with just functioning and adapting to the new city, so I used to spend a lot of time visiting art galleries to distract myself. I also started to learn about my mental health, noticing that sometimes I coped with my emotions in a very intense way. This made me feel estranged, but also in awe of those around me who managed to deal with things in a healthy and easy way. I didn’t understand why the things that bothered me were leaving other people unmoved. “Bicycle” is like saying “oh, so that’s how it is supposed to be. I hope to learn from you.” The ending of the song is both an outburst and a relief from this feeling, a heavy bass kicks in and I scream in my very own way (which is quiet) about memories that make me feel safe and that shelter me from that state of mind.
This is the second single off her much anticipated upcoming album, so stay tuned.
