Otago born, London based artist Hannah Curwood releases her new album today under her new project name Hannah In The Wars.
Hannah In The Wars is the result of collaborations with Roger O'Donnell of The Cure and a handpicked group of talented musicians. The new songs showcase Curwood’s distinctive and powerful vocals and feature Telecaster, piano, synth, delicate string arrangements and orchestral percussion.
O'Donnell has supported the band by providing his country home studio as a recording base, and lending guidance with vocal performance, arrangements and his expertise in synth programming.
The resulting 10 songs evoke the likes of P J Harvey, Anna Calvi, Sharon Van Etten, Laura Marling and Smog - delicacy entangled with intensity.
The album was mixed by Paul Corkett (The Cure, Nick Cave, Bjork) and is out in New Zealand via O'Donnells 99X/10 label in April 2014. Available from iTunes and all good digital outlets, Hannah In The Wars is also for sale in limited numbers as a vinyl pressing.
Hannah In The Wars kicks off her nationwide tour tomorrow with Luckless and Will Wood.
